Ian confirms that Jamie never did, and neither did the rest of the family
Jenny Murray immediately recognizes Brianna as Jamie’s daughter, but before she can welcome her niece, they’re interrupted by an indignant Laoghaire MacKenzie who came there when she heard about a rider resembling Jamie Fraser sighted in the district. Laoghaire asks who Bree’s mother is and Bree says his wife, and Laoghaire asks which wife.
As they walk through the hall, Brianna first looks at the painting of a young Jamie with his older brother William and then is shocked to see Ellen’s portrait
Amid the turmoil, Young Jamie leads a shocked Brianna to the parlor where she meets her uncle Ian Murray who welcomes her.

Laoghaire claims Claire is a witch, that she bewitched Jamie from the day she came to Castle Leoch and made Laoghaire invisible. She warns the Murrays about bringing a witch’s child into their home.

Laoghaire’s brother takes her away, but before they leave, she tells Bree her father is “a liar and a whoremaster, a cheat and a pander.” When they leave, she finally sits down, begging for reassurances that her father never stopped loving her mother.
