Photo: Starz, Outlander, Season 6, it’s coming!
This article contains SPOILERS for A Breath of Snow and Ashes and possibly for Season 6! Do ye be warned!
Starz has treated us with lots of wee videos over the last month, leading up to the Season 6 premiere, in just under ONE MONTH!! Can you believe it?? This Droughtlander is actually almost over. Woooo hoooo!
We got a nice overview of what we can expect from Season 6 from the cast…
We also got episode titles. We know that Episode 601 will be 90 minutes long, which is fantastic! And we know that it’s called Echoes.
Happy Monday, #Outlander fans! Here are your Season 6 episode titles. pic.twitter.com/hJayJrNLGe

Reverso Dictionary says echoes from the past are “something that evokes memories, esp. of a particular style or era – an effect that continues after the original cause has disappeared; repercussion.”
Hmmm, much to work with here, when considering Outlander Season 6 content…
Since we do know that Jamie’s role as Indian Agent is in Season 6…

Less than a month from now, we’ll all know the answer! I can’t wait to savor 90 minutes of Outlander!
In this same conversation, we pondered whether the gold storyline would make it into Season 6; if we are getting a Season 7, which we are, and if it’s based on An Echo In The Bone, we need that storyline! Well, in the title photo, we definitely see the Bugs, so, in my mind the gold storyline is looking good!
Titles for the other seven episodes were also released:
602 – Allegiance – “loyalty or commitment of a subordinate to a superior or of an individual to a group or cause.” This seems like it might be about Jamie trying to serve the crown, be a rebel, and work peacefully with the Native Americans?
603 – Temperance – Based on what we’ve heard so far, I’m guessing this is a Fergus centric episode.
Can we all take a moment to talk about how worthy *we* know Fergus is? #Outlander pic.twitter.com/MaloALm41J

604 – Hour of the Wolf – We can be pretty sure this one is about Young Ian. We know that part of Young Ian’s story was actually filmed in Season 5, but they ended up not featuring those bits. Will they use some of that, or will it be all new footage from Season 6? In our Episode discussion for the finale of Season 4, 413, Karmen mentioned that she spotted a girl whom she thought might be Emily. I went back and found her in the Ep 413 footage…

Is this the woman who plays Wakyo’teyehsnonhsa or “Works With Her Hands?” I guess we’ll find out this season.
He may not be a time traveler but Young Ian's still caught between two worlds. #Outlander pic.twitter.com/tjb8O94TnO

605 – Give Me Liberty – hmmmm, any thoughts?
606 – The World Turned Upside Down – this is a direct title from ABOSAA, Chapter to 80, the chapter in which Malva drops her Jamie-baby-daddy bomb. These 3 look pretty guilty!

607 – Sticks and Stones – This brings to mind for me, the scene in which Claire and Jamie are being taken by Richard Brown and men (along with Tom Christie), to be served “justice,”, and the townspeople stone Claire? Maybe they throw some sticks too?

608 – I Am Not Alone – This feels like it could be Claire’s journey with Governor Martin, etc. and Jamie coming to find her. Just a guess, and in parallel, perhaps Buck showing up in 1980’s Lallybroch? This is complete conjecture on my part! Whatever it is, Diana G has said Episode 608 is a doozy.
And then, I’m afraid, it’s back to Droughtlander for us!!
I have not researched others’ theories on these titles, I’m sure they’re out there! If you have theories, I’d love to know them, so add them to the comments below!
We also found out recently who plays Major MacDonald in Season 6; I had thought Greg McHugh might be playing MacDonald, but no. MacDonald is played by Scottish actor Robin Laing, who, according to Google, is best known for his portrayal of Edward Heffron in the HBO series Band of Brothers and as DI Donald in River City. Stephen Walters was also in Band of Brothers, so maybe they know each other?
That's MAJOR Donald MacDonald, I'll have you know! 😁
Over the moon to be a wee part of the @Outlander_STARZ universe. https://t.co/q506IXn1xp

We had a wee snippet from Mark Lewis Jones about his character of Tom Christie… Diana has raved about his performance, and I am looking forward to it!
‘A satchel full of drama’!! Love it. So proud to be a part of this great show. ❤️ https://t.co/TA9c5RtIYX

Alex Vlahos simultaneously introduced Allan Christie and celebrated his bromance with Richard Rankin in his video 🙂
Move over Claire and Jamie, this is a (b)romance for the ages! #Outlander pic.twitter.com/3tBJ5RKtJw

And we heard from Lauren Lyle about Season 6 Marsali; this is the first time both Marsali and Fergus will have a proper storyline – I’m stoked.
This season, Marsali has a lot on her shoulders. #Outlander pic.twitter.com/QsoI8YJdfe

And in this final video, the cast weigh in on what modern amenity they would each bring to the Ridge…
Tash Pow @peekaboo_jen on Twitter was quick to meme Sam’s jacuzzi comments…
Tash: “I don’t think Richard Brown or Thomas Christie got the ‘Bring your swimming trunks’ memo. Allan is sorted.” 😁
Speaking of fun Twitter accounts, I just became aware of a new Frank Randall parody account on Twitter. Frank renamed all of the episode titles!
😂😂😂 Frank! You’re killing me! https://t.co/fAz2vlzzON

Wow! Courtney your re-cap is amazing, you haven’t left anything out. Why go anywhere else for Outlander and cast updates when you provide the best and the most up to date info. Bravo to you for your continued hard work and commitment to the show!
Thank you Joan 😘
Thank you Courtney I always enjoy your analysis and comments about Outlander. Can I ask if you, Kathryn. Catherine and Antoinette will be getting together to forensically look at each of the 8 episodes of S6 ? Looking forward to it ☺️☺️
Yes we will! 😁
I had the fortune to go to the Poisoned Pen bookstore this weekend in Scottsdale. You feel the vibe of Outlander there. I guess it will have to do until Season 6 begins. I’ve already read Bees 1 and 1/2 times!
Thank you for this great recap!! What do you think the finale will be? The big house burning? Bree meeting William on the quay? Bree and Roger going through the stones with Jen and wee Mandy and her little heart? I think “Give me Liberty” episode will be Jamie going public with his alliance to the rebels and forsaking the crown.
Check this out Rhonda!
oooh! A nice, long, chockfull of info post! Thanks for all the links to Twitter, etc. So many things to look forward to! Counting down the days!
I was sorry Caitriona wasn’t nominated. When I left the theatre after watching “Belfast”, I was sure she would. I’m happy that Ciaran Hinds was nominated tho! Much deserved & he’s had such a long career. I love it when he’s in a film.
And now, I’d better get to reading ABOSSA!
Just out today, Belfast is up for best film Oscar.
Yes! It’s in the article! 😁
The excitement is building up! Just a month and a bit – Season 6 will be here! Love the re-capping of all the previous Seasons and episodes. Great to catch up. But, it has been too long before a new Outlander Season comes ( meaning Droughtlander). I have missed seeing all our favourite people (Jamie, Claire, Young Ian, Fergus, Marsari, Brianna, Roger, and all the rest of the cast) Each and everyone creates a story and life journey. Thank you for all the photos and videos above.
You’re welcome Rhona – not long now!
Thanks for all this Courtney; enjoyed reading everything and the interview with Caitlin from The Dipp.
Loved this compilation! I put your article on our “required reading” for next week’s Hudson Highlanders meeting!
Haha You task master! I’m glad you enjoyed it Susan. 😊
Gosh Courtney, what an amazing post! So full of information. Loved it! Must have taken you ages to compile? Well done!
I hadn’t read the EW and Diana article on ‘Bees’ before… so much to look forward to. And so want to know about Mister Raymond and Claires connection..
Plus Outlander Anatomy on the convention in Seattle was fun, well done Karmen.
And your conversation with ‘The Dipp’ some great thoughts …….
As for what is in season 6, I hope they do Claire’s and Tom Christine’s illness and the cutting of Claire’s hair…
Thank you Susie! I think they will.
I do these over a series of days or sometimes weeks, adding, removing, and finding out new things as I go. The information is flowing in daily, so it’s a challenge to have these “complete” and up to date! I’m glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for letting me know. xo
Vielen Dank für so viele schöne Bilder und Texte.
Unfortunately, the first episode of S6 is only 1hr 20 mins (not 1hr 30mins) as per the Glasgow Film Festival information that they published in relation to Ep1, which is being premiered in Glasgow on March 3rd. The episode is classified as 18+ though! Also they state content warnings as “Death, sexual assault, strong language/swearing, strong physical violence, blood/gore, graphic nudity, loud noises”!
More info here:
Interesting! I’m sure Starz said 90. Maybe with title cards & credits? Hmmm. Oh, this makes me wonder if we’ll see some of Jamie’s Black Jack moments again. 😬 Thanks M Fae – are you going?
I’m still trying to work out if I can. To get the tickets you need to be in Glasgow on the actual day of the premiere, and at the box office when it opens first thing to get tickets. There’s no saying how long the queue will be or how quickly they’ll go. So it might be an unnecessary journey very early in the morning for nothing! The best thing is the tickets are FREE!!
Hmm can people get more than one ticket? Can someone in Glasgow go hold a spot in line for you?
Any thoughts on who might be cast as William?
There were some photos out there awhile back now, of a rather fine looking young man who was being considered (or rumoured to be) but I think that was pre covid even. Big help I am. But he would have been believable as son of Ms Dunsany and Jamie. Id probably recognize the name if I heard it.
There are lots of ideas out there, but I haven’t seen one who knocks my socks off yet!
He’s a model. Christopher Mason.
I looked him up Jill, thanks. I wonder if he can act though? He is not my vision of William, is he yours? Thank you for remembering and passing on his name!
Not really. It’s all about the look with CM and who knows if he can act, and on this show he’d stick out like a sore thumb.. but honestly I would love to see a dark haired Jamie child, like young Clarke who was the adorable little boy Willy. Geneva was a beauty too, and it would be great to see her in him as an adult.
It’ll be fun to see who they cast.
Great articles as always.
Where can I find the source section?
Hi Astrid! At the very bottom of the article. I hope you’re well! x
I love how the cast supports each other in their successes !!
Sophie has just said at scad fest that Roger ends season six without a beard!!
Oh! That sounds like maybe he heads back to the ‘80’s? I guess he could shave his beard off in the 1700’s too, but that’s interesting to contemplate!
I wondered the same thing – if they end the season with Roger and Bree back in the future?! Can’t wait to see it!
And if they do go back to take care of Mandy…I hope they include that little part where Brianna opens that chest full of letters…that was so clever.
… AND in the recent The Gate interview Sam says this season ends on a cliffhanger 😱
I LOVE, LOVE LOVE your BTS emails and especially you ladies’ BTS episode discussions! Thank you for finishing the season 4 episode discussions. Maybe you ladies will be able to go back and discuss the earlier seasons??? Anyway, thanks for all you do!
