WHAT’S THE PLOT OF OUTLANDER SEASON 6?

Do Claire and Jamie die in Season 6? NOPE. As we mentioned based on the book 6 of Outlander series, both Claire and Jamie will not die at the end of Season 6. Here is a summarized plotline from the 6th Outlander:

“History once again catches up with the Frasers, and Jamie is eventually obliged to declare himself a rebel and sacrifice of much of what he has built.

In the American Revolution civil war, the community of “Fraser’s Ridge” begins to fall apart and bands of wandering men ravage the land, stealing, burning, and destroying anything that came in their way. These men are not even bothering to shield their actions behind the curtain of politics.

One such band attacked “Fraser’s Ridge” and Marsali Mackenzie Fraser (Laoghaire’s daughter and Jamie and Claire’s stepdaughter) is trapped in the middle, and Claire is abducted.

The violent aftermath of this act leaves a trail of damage in its wake, the first of a series of shocks that shakes the community on Fraser’s Ridge.

The next such shock shatters peace and community, and results in the arrest of Jamie and Claire, and their departure for New Bern, the seat of government and the only tenuous source of law left in the colony.

Meanwhile, Roger MacKenzie Wakefield (Brianna “Bree” Randall’s husband), has made a place for himself in the 18th century. He works as a Presbyterian minister. His wife Bree has been abducted by Stephen Bonnet, and with the help of Jamie and Young Ian, he set on a course to rescue her.

There is no law left anywhere now and different story arcs lead to a bloody confrontation on the island of “Ocracoke”.

The Ocracoke Island is the site of a small standing stone circle— a place that brings one strand of this epic saga to a moving conclusion.
