Outlander Season 6 Spoilers: Why is Jamie in prison in season 6?
Outlander Season six is finally upon us, and it did not disappoint. The premiere episode, titled “A Free Man”, picks up a few years after season two.
Jamie (Sam Heughan) has been in prison for several years after being caught up in the Jacobite rebellion. Claire (Caitriona Balfe) has been living in Boston with her daughter Brianna (Sophie Skelton), trying to forget about her husband.
When we first see Jamie, he is terrible; he has lost his hair and beard and is covered in scars. Things only worsen when he finds out that Claire has been lying to him about what happened at Culloden.
The episode then jumps ahead to the present day, where we see Jamie and Claire finally reunited. They are both older, but they haven’t changed; they are still madly in love with each other. The two spend the rest of the episode catching up on all that has happened since they last together.
Overall, “A Free Man” was a great premiere episode. It was emotional and heartbreaking at times, but it also had its fair share of lighthearted moments. We can’t wait to see what the rest of season six has in store for us!
