In it seventh episode of the sixth season of “Outlander”, Claire wrestles with her inner demons when a nefarious rumor begins to spread in Ridge. Also, tensions rise as residents fear there is a dangerous person in their midst.
But without a doubt one of the events that most attracted the attention of the fans of the series of Starz is the union of Lizzie Wemyss (Caitlin O’Ryan) with twin Beardsley brothers, Josiah and Kezzie (Pablo Gorman). Therefore, they wonder what will happen to this love triangle in the end? Will Elizabeth choose one?
Lizzie was destined to be sold as a concubine, but the arrival of Brianna (Sophie Skellton) changes everything and she becomes part of the Fraser family. Soon after, he meets the Beardsley brothers and teaches them how to live in a civilized society. Keziah and Josiah soon fall in love with her and form a peculiar relationship.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO LIZZIE, KEZZIE AND JOSIAH’S RELATIONSHIP?
However, his lifestyle and happiness is threatened when in the penultimate episode of the sixth season of “Outlander”, Lizzie reveals that she is pregnant, but is unclear if the child is Keziah’s or Josiah’s.
To remedy the matter, Jaime Fraser (Sam Heughan) performs a ceremony to bond Lizzie with Kezzie. But she is not willing to give up Josiah, as she loves him too and believes the twins are one soul divided in two, so she tricks Roger (Richard Rankin) into celebrating another union by hand.
Although somewhat unconventional, according to Screen Rant, the ancient hand-tying process is ill-defined enough to allow for a non-traditional bond, meaning both ceremonies can work.
The first joint by hand in “Outlander” occurs in season four when Bree and Roger get married. This is a very old tradition, but was legally recognized in Scotland by the Marriage Act 1939.
According to the BBC, marriages by hand “were held instead of a church wedding [y] were legally recognized as weddings that resulted in marriage. Even after 1939, marriage ‘by cohabitation with habit and reputation’ was legally recognized until the Family Law (Scotland) Act 2006 was passed″.
What happens to Lizzie, Keziah and Josiah in Diana Gabaldon’s novel? In “A Breath of Snow and Ashes”, the couple of three get married in the same way as in “Outlander”, and later, they devise a plan to avoid the scandal: Lizzie tells everyone that she married Kezzie and that Jo only lives with them. They live happily together with several children.
