The Outlander Season 6 premiere airs in just a few days. What can we expect during the episode? Here are the Outlander spoilers you need to know.

Don’t worry; we’re not going to spoil the entire episode. This is more of a tease than a spoil. Yes, I have had the opportunity to see the episode, but I know the differences between spoilers and teases. If you don’t want to know anything at all about the episode though, this is not going to be for you.

The Outlander Season 6 premiere airs this weekend. It’s been one hell of a Droughtlander, but it’s almost over. And now we’re ready to see what’s next for Claire, Jamie, Brianna, Roger, and many others who live at Fraser’s Ridge.

New tenants arrive at Fraser’s Ridge in the Outlander Season 6 premiere

One of the biggest things to happen is the new tenants. Tom Christie is one of them, and he’s bringing his family. However, he’s gained a following on the way, a following of people from Scotland looking for a new home.

This will lead to problems for Jamie. Tom and Jamie were at Ardsmuir together, but they didn’t get along. They both had their own factions, and Jamie had to find a way to bring some sort of peace among the men. Now he’ll need to find a way to bring a sense of peace on the Ridge as Tom continues to fight for dominance.

There is one of the new tenants you’ll want to keep an eye on. Amy McCallum is among the group, a widow with two children. Of course, Brianna and Roger want to find a way to help her.

Claire struggles with PTSD

There is also a problem outside of the Ridge. The Browns continue to be a cause for concern. That was made clear at the end of the fifth season. Richard wasn’t happy that Jamie had killed his brother.

We’ll get to see the Committee of Safety that Richard Brown has set up. It’s supposed to be to keep people safe, but it’s going to cause a few problems for the Frasers. Jamie needs to do whatever he can to protect his own people.

Then there’s Claire who needs to deal with her PTSD. She has a way to handle it that isn’t in the books. I’m sure there are going to be some book fans who are disappointed. After all, “it’s not in the books,” but this is an intriguing storyline for Claire. I’m excited to see how it all plays out, and it does feel far more real than just moving on from the trauma and just bringing it up now and again.
