Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter

There isn’t too much in the way of foreshadowing in this chapter. I guess the biggest thing is that it’s clear that the story with the Browns isn’t quite over.

It’s clear that Jamie doesn’t really trust the Brown men, although he’s also not impressed with Morton’s actions of committing bigamy. However, that doesn’t mean Jamie doesn’t want two people in love to be together. The important moment is that the Brown men can’t be trusted, and that’s going to come up in A Breath of Snow and Ashes.

Adapting The Fiery Cross chapter

The chapter was used for Outlander Season 5, Episode 4. We got the full story at Brownsville, including Claire and Jamie walking in the moonlight. I don’t remember the full discussion of English law coming up, but I guess that wasn’t overly important. What was important was that connection between Claire and Jamie.

It’s not often we see the Frasers having fun and just being together in the moment. That’s why I wanted to see this part of the chapter used on the series. I needed to just have that moment between the two of them, to see them have fun and connect.

Of course, the Alicia/Isaiah storyline was also included. I’ll be honest and say that this storyline wasn’t all too important for me in terms of the overall story, but it added the drama needed for the Brownsville section. I’ll take it because it meant the moonlight moment.
