Young Ian’s best moments in Outlander Season 7, Episode 6
Making it clear it’s up to him
When Ian and Jamie find out that Claire has been taken by the British, Ian knows that it has to be him that goes into Fort Ticonderoga. The Mohawk sided with the British, and that means Ian can get in pretending to be a scout for them.
He can’t let Jamie go in. He knows that if Jamie is caught, he’ll be hanged. This is up to him, and he’s ready to take this risk for family.
Convincing William to allow Claire to leave
While in the camp, Ian comes across William again. At first, he’s able to make it look like he’s a scout for the Mohawk, but William knows that Jamie is a rebel. He figured that out thanks to Claire. Now he knows that Ian is also a rebel.
However, Ian manages to talk some sense into William. Does it really make sense to keep Claire in Fort Ticonderoga? Of course, William knows that he should, but there are debts to be paid. Ian knows how to talk people around.
His attempted flirting with Rachel
Young Ian and Rachel are so cute. It’s clear that they both like each other, even if Rachel doesn’t quite realize that herself. When it comes to Ian’s best moments, though, it’s the attempted flirting. It’s also the fact that he left Rollo with Rachel in the first place.
Ian wouldn’t leave Rollo with just anyone. He’d want someone who Rollo would trust, and someone Ian could trust to care for Rollo’s needs. As great as Rollo is at hunting, he still needs humans to help. Leaving Rollo with Rachel and Denny shows the trust that he has for them.
