Outlander Season 6 Episode 1 finally arrives this weekend after fans being in Droughtlander or so long. The first episode, titled Echoes, will kick off a new chapter in the lives of the Fraser family, and it's going to be riddled with trauma, danger, and issues from the past.

Outlander Season 6 Episode 1: What is Echoes All About?

We believe that the episode's title isn't always a reference to a single individual in this case. The following synopsis gives you an excellent idea of what we're talking about:

Jamie’s authority is tested when an old rival from Ardsmuir shows up to settle on the Ridge. Meanwhile, Claire finds a new way to cope with the trauma of her assault by Lionel Brown.

The echo is plainly from Tom Christie, this old foe who shows up in North Carolina with his family. This will send Sam Heughan's character back to a tough time in his life, and we anticipate a slew of confrontations.

The Christies' lives will take unexpected turns during the season. Despite the fact that Season 6 is only eight episodes long, there will be a lot packed in here.

Outlander Season 6 Will Touch Claire’s Trauma

Claire's trauma, meanwhile, is very much present in this season. We saw it towards the conclusion of Season 5 with some of those devastating scenes, and it's not going away. We believe she has a strong support system, especially because Jamie and Brianna have both been victims of horrendous assaults. Nonetheless, this will take time, and the emotional wounds will still be present.

Outlander is a show that occasionally gives you hope, but it usually comes after a lot of heartbreak. Caitriona Balfe's character has been through a lot of sorrow, so we can't expect hope to be on the horizon straight away.

Outlander Season 6 Episode 1 Length


If you record on STARZ, make sure you're prepared for the extra length of the episode. Outlander episodes are typically an hour long. Few have gone over an hour in length, but the Outlander Season 6 premiere will.

The episode is 80 minutes long.

Outlander Season 6 Episode 1 premieres on Sunday, Mar. 6 on STARZ.
