Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter

I do see foreshadowing in the way Denny speaks about autopisies and his love for medicine. It’s clear that he and Claire are likely to get alone. While Claire is a woman, and not the usual gender for medicine, I think Denny’s whole outlook on life makes it clear that he won’t think anything badly about Claire. He’ll still respect her and her knowledge. He is a man eager to learn.

I also think that there’s some foreshadowing in Rachel’s ability to tame Young Ian a little. He is a warrior, but she has a tender heart. The two are so different, but they work with each other so well. Rachel can see deeper into people, and she does that with William at the end of this chapter.

Adapting An Echo in the Bone chapter

I expect to see this chapter developed for Outlander Season 7. I feel like we need it. We need to see the Hunters on the road with William, and we need to see that it is dangerous on the road. There are always individuals out to hurt people.

There are echoes of Jamie within this chapter, such as William sleeping with a knife. We need to see those echoes in the series, linking William to Jamie without the two men even realizing it.

Plus, I feel like we need to know more about the Hunters. Rachel is so important for Young Ian that we need to see the siblings’ story play out.

dark. Next. 25 shows to watch on Netflix if you love Outlander
