We're unpacking it all, including who killed Malva Christie in Outlander and why.
SPOILER WARNING: THIS PIECE CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS
Why was Malva Christie killed in Outlander?
Malva professed her pregnancy not long before she was found dead, and she told Jamie Fraser that it was his child.
Jamie's wife, Claire, had been extremely sick (although not with dysentery that everyone else had died from), and Malva claims to have slept with her husband while she was out of it.
Jamie denies ever having had sex with Malva, at which point Malva states that she can name where all of the scars on Jamie's body are.
Of course, this is because Malva watched secretly as Jamie and Claire had sex in a prior episode, but neither of them knows that.

Soon, news of Malva's revelations hit the Ridge, and Jamie and Claire become isolated by the people they have cared for.
Also, word of Jamie's "indiscretions" reaches his fellow Sons of Liberty members, and he loses a significant position in the continental congress due to Malva's pregnancy.
Jamie and Claire decide that they will get through this as a united front, and Claire chooses to believe that Malva has lied about her husband's alleged infidelity.
Claire decides to go and see Malva a few days later, but Malva is upset that she's being seen as an adulteress, while Jamie isn't under the same type of speculation.

Malva seems nearly ready to confess the truth, but then Allan, her half-brother, comes bursting out of the house and tells Claire to go away.

When she awakens, she finds Malva's body in her garden, her throat slit.
Claire attempts to save the baby, however she isn't able to, and now she and Jamie have quite a mess on their hands.
