Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
There is certainly some foreshadowing in this chapter. Those chest pains are serious, and they’re going to come up again. It’s not just foreshadowing for problems for Buck, though. We find out in the ninth book that Bree’s heart is also affected by time travel. She can’t safely travel through the stones again.
It’s important to remember the dangers of time travel. After all, why wouldn’t they just jump through the stones for modern-day medicine when they need it again?
Adapting the Written in My Own Heart’s Blood chapter
I expect to see this chapter used in the TV series. We know that Buck is part of the story, so he should have this big role. We also know Geillis and Dougal show up, and Geillis is especially important for Buck’s storyline.
I think it’s all going to play a part in Outlander Season 7. The Bree and Roger storyline in An Echo in the Bone is pretty small. I have a feeling we’ll see a little of Mandy’s surgery written for the TV show and then we’ll jump straight into the drama of Roger and Buck finding Jem, even though he’s not in the past. After all, a happy story is a boring one for TV, so Bree and Roger need to be separated for some time, right?
