Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
There is a tiny bit of foreshadowing in the chapter. Remember the name of the island Ocracoke. It’s not going to be the last time you hear it mentioned, and there is something important about it. I love that there’s a ruby ring involved when Bree is so close to another set of standing stones.
You’ll also want to remember that Eppie only vaguely agreed to help. She doesn’t intend to go searching for anyone, but it does eventually come up.
Adapting A Breath of Snow and Ashes chapter
The chapter wasn’t fully used in the TV series. We didn’t have Bree on a boat, but it was Bonnet who took Bree and there was a prostitute involved.
I’m not surprised the show opted to avoid the boat. I’m sure that would have cost more to film on and it would have been smaller. It was better to opt for a set somewhere that was stationary. This would have been easier to film in, and the exact location wasn’t all too important. The most important storylines were included in the series.
Of course, we already knew who had taken Bree at this point. This part of the story was changed. Forbes didn’t help with the abduction. Instead, it played out in Wilmington with Claire being there at the time. It helped to condense a couple of storylines and give everyone something to do in the story.
