Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter

The only real foreshadowing in this chapter is that Jocasta’s wedding will need to come up. She and Duncan are still going to eventually get married, but it’s going to be a Catholic ceremony. They just need to plan that. We know that will bring drama in itself!

Other than that, this chapter is mostly in the moment.

Adapting The Fiery Cross chapter

While the wedding was used in Outlander Season 5, this chapter specifically wasn’t. We didn’t get the moment with the grinning men. While it is funny, I am glad that the focus shifted for the TV series.

The show made the moment all about Brianna and Roger’s wedding day. It was about two parents happy to see their daughter marry the man she loves. Jamie and Brianna got a beautiful moment together with him bringing elements from her own time period to the past. For the series, this was necessary, and I do wish we got some of that in the book.

I also appreciated the lack of drama around the priest being arrested and then having to adjust to a Presbyterian ceremony. It helped to keep the focus on what really mattered to kick off the season, and that was this wedding Bree and Roger deserved.
