Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter

I don’t really get a sense of foreshadowing in this chapter. I guess the main element is that Jemmy needs to keep learning Gaelic. He will eventually go back to the past. However, in this moment, Roger and Bree didn’t know this. They thought they would remain in the 20th century for good.

This chapter is more about bringing a sense of the 1980s. We need to understand what was going on in the Highlands at the time to get a sense of what Jemmy will be learning in school and the nature of life for the MacKenzies.

Adapting An Echo in the Bone chapter

I would love to see the show use this chapter. We’ve always seen elements of history included in the TV series, and I want to see that continue in Outlander Season 7. This is an important part of history.

Fans will remember that it was difficult to find someone to teach Gaelic for the series. Diana Gabaldon did get a few things incorrect in her earlier books because of this. Including this chapter in the TV series will help to explain a few things. Plus, I want to see Roger standing up for his son.
