Ian finds the perfect place to lay Henri-Christian to rest in Outlander Book 8, Chapter 122
It’s time for the Frasers to leave Philadelphia in Outlander Book 8, Chapter 122. Before that can happen, Henri-Christian needs to be laid to rest.
While all of this is absolutely heartbreaking, there is also a bittersweetness to it. Henri-Christian is not going to be left alone in death. He is going to have a loyal companion with him in the afterlife. Ian takes everyone to where he buried Rollo to make sure the two of them are together in death.
It makes me cry even more thinking of it, but these are warmer tears. I’m not angry at the situation but so happy that two souls have each other. And we all know how loyal Rollo was to Ian. He will be loyal to Henri-Christian in death as well. It’s not like HC isn’t going to the same afterlife as Rollo.
This chapter is about closing the end of this story. It’s time for everyone to head back to Fraser’s Ridge. This is all about plot development.
I want to see this used in the TV series. I’ll get to my thoughts on that in the adaptation section.
Let’s dive into Written in My Own Heart’s Blood Chapter 122.
