Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
There isn’t that much foreshadowing in the chapter. This is more about plot development. It’s clear that Forbes and Bonnet will continue to be a problem for the Frasers. They have their own plans, and they’re willing to work together when the need arises.
We will get to see them again. Jamie has more and more reason to hate both of them. However, for now, they need to get to New Bern to save Claire.
Adapting A Breath of Snow and Ashes chapter
The chapter was partly used in Outlander Season 6. It wasn’t exact, though. Forbes and Bonnet were both dealt with in the fifth season. With the way TV shows film and how schedules can clash, this decision wasn’t that surprising. Both of their stories needed to be wrapped for the TV series, and the only guarantee was to do it in the fifth season.
So, how would the show handle putting Jamie on a boat? That’s simple. They just need a nameless character to agree to take Jamie back to the UK. In the show, it’s Scotland.
Ian doesn’t arrive alone, though. He brings the Cherokee and John Quincy Myers. I adore the way the series wrote this. In TV, you don’t form bonds to just leave them to one side when something major happens. Jamie formed a bond with Bird by telling him the truth about the future. Bird repays that and makes it clear that he will always fight with Jamie. Bird trusts Jamie, and the trust can go both ways.
