William kills a deer in Outlander Book 8, Chapter 116
We get more of an interlude chapter in Outlander Book 8, Chapter 116. It’s time to see where William is right now.
This chapter seems a little surprising the more I reread the books. We’ve seen how much William ends up bumbling through the Dismal Swamp previously, and now he is suddenly able to just kill a deer without much hassle? It doesn’t make a lot of sense. I thought there would be much more of a fight.
At the same time, the chapter seems more like something to just break up things that are going on. It’s because of this that I don’t expect to see it in the adaptation. I’ll get into more of that in that part of the post. There just isn’t that much that’s important to the overall storyline.
There is some foreshadowing in here, though. We get to see William continue a tradition that Mac taught him, but he’s not pushing away the thoughts right now. I’ll get into this when it comes to the foreshadowing part.
Let’s dive into Written in My Own Heart’s Blood Chapter 116.
