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.

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.

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.

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?

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 🙂

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.

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
