Jamie and Claire Fraser have seen their fair share of enemies on Outlander. But the one villain fans love to hate has been noticeably absent for two seasons.
Laoghaire McKenzie, Jamie’s ex-wife, was left behind in Scotland when the Fraser clan adventured into the new world. However, she’s still connected to them through family, which means she could return to the series and possibly make an appearance in season 6.
Laoghaire last appearance was in ‘Outlander’ season 4
Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) fates are entangled with Laoghaire (Nell Hudson) whether they like it or not. In season 1, seeing Jamie kiss Laoghaire sparked jealousy in Claire, which pushed her into revealing her true feelings for him.
To get Jamie back, Laoghaire accused Claire of witchcraft, had her tried, and nearly killed. In the third season, Claire comes back from the future to learn that Jamie married a twice widowed Laoghaire and adopted her daughters, Marsali (Lauren Lyle) and Joan (Layla Burns).
Laoghaire’s last Outlander appearance came in the season 4 episode, “Down the Rabbit Hole,” in which she finds an injured Brianna and cares for her in her home. Of course, when she discovers Brianna is Claire and Jamie’s daughter, she turns on her and attempts to have her arrested for being a witch.
