We are so close to the end of Droughtlander. Who will return for Outlander Season 7A? Will we see Malva Christie back on the screen?
This Droughtlander hasn’t been as long as others, but it’s still been longer. It doesn’t mean we like to wait. The good news is the wait is almost over.
Outlander Season 7A premieres on Friday, June 16. We’re now getting ready for who we could see come back to our screens. For those who haven’t read the books yet, don’t worry about spoilers. We’re not getting into the book storylines in this post. Instead, we’re looking at promotional material released for the series and where we ended Season 6.
Could Malva Christie be in Outlander Season 7A?
Let’s just start with where things ended in Outlander Season 6. Claire found Malva murdered in her garden. While Claire tried to save Malva’s unborn baby, it was in vain. Both mother and baby were buried together. Jamie was sure to make sure that happened in the graveyard and not in the woods, even though that was what Tom Christie wanted.
The season ended with Claire being accused of murder. It doesn’t look like Tom believes Claire did it. He went with Claire and Jamie to ensure Claire got a fair trial because we all know the Browns wouldn’t allow for that to happen.
With all that being said, it looks like Malva Christie won’t return. After all, she’s dead. That hasn’t stopped this show from bringing back characters before though. We already know that Dougal, Geillis, and Brian Fraser will be part of Outlander Season 7 at some point and all three characters are coming back.
We also know that Lionel Brown turned up a few times in Outlander Season 6 despite dying in Season 5. He came back as a figment of Claire’s imagination. Could that happen again with Malva? We won’t rule it out, but there are no signs in any promotional material that Jessica Reynolds is back with the series.
