Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter

The chapter doesn’t really foreshadow all that much. After all, we know what happens based on real history. It’s clear that this is what will play out.

I guess there’s a little bit from what is mentioned about Mrs. Raven. It took me a while to remember what happened to her, and I thought at first she was going to connect to something going on in the fort. However, I think it’s the “ghoul” part that foreshadows something. Mrs. Raven is suffering from a mental illness thanks to a physical ailment, and it’s all to come out.

Adapting An Echo in the Bone chapter

I don’t expect to see the chapter adapted the way it is told in the book. This is just because of the way a TV show needs to tell a story. We need to see it happen and not just get told things. To be honest, that’s important for me in a book story, too, and it’s why I don’t really connect with the story through letters and being told of events that have happened.

I have a feeling we’ll get to see everything play out in person. We’ll see Claire interacting with Dr. Thatcher and we’ll meet Mrs. Raven and how she helps Claire. We’ll get to see the threat of things to come, and maybe have a mention of the letters from Bree and Roger in the 20th century. That’s if everything from An Echo in the Bone is going to be used.
