Outlander season 6: Young Ian and Emily’s relationship explored in glaring fan clue?


Starz’s hit time-travelling series Outlander has continued to hook viewers who were eagerly awaiting the next episode. With the upcoming fourth instalment set to be released this week, fans spotted a major clue in the promo which could hint at a look at Young Ian Murray’s (played by John Bell) past.

Outlander will be returning to screens with its fourth episode titled ’Hour of the Wolf’.

In the promo video Young Ian was in the spotlight alongside the Cherokee tribe, which led viewers to believe his past will finally be explored.

Fans will remember in season five when Young Ian made the surprising decision to join the Mohawk tribe.

It was a decision he made to save Roger MacKenzie’s (Richard Rankin) life, but when he made an unexpected return people noticed things with him were different.

Upon his return, he sat silently when quizzed about how things were at the tribe only to discover he had left.

Instead of returning to Fraser’s Ridge, Young Ian disclosed he would be residing with his aunt and uncle for the foreseeable future.

However, the promo video hinted at his return after a member of the Cherokee tribe approached him.

Taking to Reddit, user DRups wrote: “HOUR OF THE WOLF – since he’s Wolf’s Brother, I think this will be when Ian opens up to Brianna about his life with Emily done as flashbacks.”

When Roger tried to press and ask about Young Ian’s wife, he simply stroked a bracelet and stated: “It doesn’t matter now.”

Then added: “She’s lost to me, I only wanted the pain to end. To be at peace,” which hinted at her still being alive.

Outlander is the on screen adaptation of a series of bestselling novels written by Diana Gabaldon, with season six being based on her sixth novel, ‘A Breath of Snow and Ashes’.

Fans who have read the books provided intel about Young Ian’s wife Emily and revealed she was a native American woman called Wakyo’teyehsnonhsa, but used Emily as a nickname.
