Diana Gabaldon’s Novel Teased Potential Season 6 Plot
Claire Would Be Terrified With Malva’s Death
Malva Christie is Fraser’s new neighbor. She would show a great interest in Claire’s nursing profession and even in her husband, Jamie. But a fan hints that Claire would learn a terrifying truth about Malva. In the early scene of the novel, Claire explains to Malva how germs transmit through various means, while being obliged to explain to Malva what sex is. To our surprise, Malva seemed shocked after learning this. But Allen has been abusing her in the other parts of the scenes.
So is she acting all innocent to hide Allan’s abuse? Well, Allan is her half-brother who began molesting her since she was a child. Even Outlander’s wiki page hints that Allan’s abuse started soon after Malva’s mother’s death. Now that Malva becomes Claire’s young apprentice and they strongly bond, this revelation would lead to a massive emotional breakdown. Perhaps Claire might fight to get Malva’s justice.
Is Jamie The Father Of Malva’s Baby?
Malva accuses Jamie in A Breath of Snow and Ashes of being the father of her baby. However, this jolting news left Claire heartbroken. But soon after this news, Malva found death. Though Claire tried to save her yet, she couldn’t make it in time. But the rest of the people on Frasher Ridge accused Claire of killing Malva. In the novel, Malva’s father Thomas confessed that he killed his daughter to protect Claire’s dignity. As he has been in love with her.
But, deeming Allan has been abusing Malva. So perhaps Allan is the birth father of Malva’s baby. She probably lied to protect her half-brother out of love or either from immense pressure from him. It seems like Thomas’ confession would also bring rage. Now it looks like Fraser Ridge would face a horrific ordeal amid dealing with the looming American Revolution.
