Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter

The foreshadowing comes from Roger’s mention of his dad. There have been a few mentions of him, but this is the first time we’ve really got this sense that he’d like to meet his dad.

There is going to be time for some time traveling in the future books. Get ready for Roger to find out what really happened to his dad in a few books’ time.

That’s all the foreshadowing I can think of. I guess there is a little with Fiona sticking around. She will always be there for Roger when/if he comes back.

Adapting the Drums of Autumn chapter

Of course, Outlander Season 4 had to adapt this chapter, but it didn’t have time to fully adapt it. The parts with Fiona calling the dawn weren’t included. The show didn’t bother with this part of the story because it’s really not all that needed.

The show also skipped over Roger being kicked out of the stones and his realization that a person can’t go back to when there’s a version of themselves there. Again, it’s not a part that was needed. However, this part was written and filmed, with it ending up on the cutting room floor. It made sense to cut this out when scenes needed to be removed.

The most important part was Roger getting through the stones. We got to see him pass through with Fiona there making sure he managed it. It was short and to the point, perfect for what was needed on the show. That’s especially the case since we got to see Brianna go through the stones too on the series.
