Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
There is certainly some foreshadowing in this chapter. There is also a lot of plot development.
The foreshadowing here is that the situation with the gold isn’t over yet. Arch is still somewhere out there. Ian is the one who will get the blame for Murdina’s death, but at what point is he going to come back for revenge? This gives us the plot development as well as the foreshadowing.
We also have the letters, which means Claire and Jamie aren’t done with passing messages to their children. What is the last letter? Bree hasn’t read it yet, but is it a letter to say Claire or Jamie died, or is it foreshadowing that eventually Bree and Roger will get back to the past?
Adapting An Echo in the Bone chapter
I do hope that we get to see some of this chapter. I’d love to see the letters in the 1980s. This will certainly help to bridge that gap between two time periods. However, I understand if there isn’t enough time.
What I do expect to see included is Jamie and Ian heading out in search for Arch. Maybe it’s not because the White Sow has been attacked since the show hasn’t focused on the audacity of the pig. There are other reasons for the two men to head out. The most important part of it is Ian killing Murdina Bug.
Murdina’s death kicks off more about Arch. However, I do wonder if Murdina’s death will be lumped in with the fire to help condense everything. With the mention of the gold in Outlander Season 6, I’m certainly expecting the Bugs to be used more in Season 7.
