outlander season 6 episode 6 recap

a fatal dysenteric breakout

Beginning of outlander Season 6, Episode 6 began with a deadly dysentery outbreak with the spread of “flux”. Claire (Caitriona Balfe), Malva (Jessica Reynolds), Bree (Sophie Skelton) and Lizzie (Caitlin O’Ryan) visit the McNeils, who fail to go to church on Sunday, only to find the entire family . To Claire’s horror she struck with a “deadly flux”, eventually killing Mrs. McNeil and her newborn child.

As Claire knows all too well, dysentery can spread like wildfire. She found herself suffering from an unknown disease and fell mortally ill, with the Fraser and Mackenzie clans and Malva attending her bedside 24 hours a day for almost a week

Malva also takes drastic measures with the help of Mrs. Bug and cuts off Claire’s hair, believing it will help bring down her temperature. Jamie walking a sick Claire up the stairs was adorable and Roger’s “nothing can make you less beautiful” comment was definitely a highlight.

After Claire recovers, Jamie tells her that the illness is slowly fading away, but that she had unfortunately taken her own life at Fraser Ridge.

He also mentioned that Tom Christie was ill, asking Claire for a sample of his stool to be sent to his home and to find out what disease he was struck by. Of course, this did not go down well with Mr. Christie.

Malwa snake

Claire wasn’t confused during her fever dreams—there was actually a snake in her house, and that was Malva Christi.

Claire dreamed of storms and a heart covered with blood, but also closely watched Malva and Jamie.

The Christie family arrives at the Fraser home to announce Malva is pregnant, only for her to falsely accuse Jamie of being the father.

He then spills all the untrue details of having sex while Jamie mourns the potential loss of his wife, which oddly matches Claire’s visions in her fever dreams.

As she spilled the details, Claire (Go Claire!) slaps Malva in the face and runs out of the room, leaving Jamie in a desperate state.

Completely stunned, Tom Christie accepts that Jamie will never leave Claire for Malva and insists that they work out a contract where Jamie must provide for Malva and his heir.

Secrets of Jamie and Young Ian

Although we all know that Jamie didn’t sleep with Malva at any point, Jamie confessed to having spent the night with Mary McNab when Claire left.

Jamie explained that he slept with Mary the night before surrendering himself to the British. He told Claire: “He brought me dinner, and then she stopped. I tried to send her away but she said she saw you with me, Claire.”

“She gave me a small thing. She was no more. She gave me tenderness. I hope I gave that to her.”

Thankfully, Claire believed that Jamie would never have had sex with Malva, but she didn’t notice Young Ian’s confession that he could possibly be the father to come.

At first, Claire assumes that Ian was making a false confession to protect his beloved uncle. However, Ian actually slept with Malva – but he wasn’t the only man Malva lay with.

tragedy of malwa

the end of outlander Season 6, Episode 6 moves forward two months later. Jamie and Roger return from their trip to the Songs of Liberty Congress to speak in support of America’s independence but not much has changed at Fraser Ridge.

Claire is still at the center of rumors and gossip about Jamie being an unfaithful husband and Malva still living with the lie that Jamie was not her father.

The status quo was finally shaken by some really terrible news. Malwa was found dead on the grounds of Fraser’s house. In a desperate attempt to save the life of her unborn child, Claire underwent an emergency C-section. Sadly it didn’t survive.

So who killed Malwa? outlander Fans will find out in Episode 7.

outlander Season 6 airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on Starz.
