Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
A lot of this chapter is catching us up on what happened at the end of Written in My Own Heart’s Blood and setting the tone for the story for William. We get these moments of plot development with where William is going and the reminder that Richardson is a threat.
The one bit of foreshadowing that I see is William accepting that while he may not be the son of an earl, only his immediate family knows. He is still viewed as an earl, and he will still view John as his father. He will come to terms with it all, and when Lord John needs him, William will step up.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
I would love to see the chapter used. I’m sure we’d met Denys around the same time we initially met Richardson in An Echo in the Bone, but now I’m not too sure. We haven’t met Denys in Outlander Season 7 yet. There is still time for that, though. We need Denys for this chapter to play out the way that it has.
It’s all whether the Ben storyline is going to play out, though. Is there enough time for it all? Part of me doesn’t think there will be, and the show will need to focus on Richardson as a threat more than anything else. I’m excited to see how this will play out.
