Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter

This chapter doesn’t have too much foreshadowing, except the big element: Claire and Jamie will need to try to help the Jacobites win Culloden. Of course, that’s not something they’re going to be able to do.

The focus of the chapter is mostly in the present. It’s focusing on Claire being part of Lallybroch life and fitting in well in the 18th century. I guess there is an element of foreshadowing in the Colonies within the chapter.

Adapting the Dragonfly in Amber chapter

This chapter was fully adapted for the series, although slightly differently. We didn’t get Jared’s letter with the support for Jamie’s actions. That’s not surprising since Jared wasn’t used much in the TV show overall.

Instead, it was just Charles’s letter that we saw on the series. The outcome was the same, though. Jamie learns that his name has been forged. He’s the one that decides there’s nothing he can do but join Charles’s war. They need to win at Culloden.

There is another part of the chapter that was adapted, but it was used for Outlander Season 1. Claire talks about wool waulking, which happens while she is on the rent party. It’s a chance for Claire to learn more about Highland life and how to make the dye set well.
