Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
The chapter certainly foreshadows things about time travel. At one point, Roger and Buck get to the stones. Neither of them can hear the stones, and it does raise the question of why.
I think that this foreshadows that the stones aren’t always “on.” We know that it can depend on the time of year, but I think there’s also an element of whether people can travel or are ready to travel. I think it also foreshadows why not all travelers will end up traveling back through the stones or how they somehow figure it all back out.
Adapting the Written in My Own Heart’s Blood chapter
Will the chapter be used? This is going to depend on time and how much of Roger’s story in the past is used. At this point, there’s not really any need for this. Roger in the show doesn’t necessarily need to find his father. The show could stick to the two trying to find Jem, meeting with Brian, Dougal, and Geillis, and that’s it.
I would love to see a spin-off involving Jerry and even involving this journey, but that would mean something needs to be included in the main series. While it gives Roger something to do in the books, the TV show doesn’t need to fill up that much time and can skip over this part.
