Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
I don’t really get much foreshadowing in this chapter. I think it’s more of plot development. We’re only at the start of the book, after all. This is more focused on getting to know new characters, who may or may not become a threat. It’s also about tying up a few loose ends from the previous book to be able to push on with the rest of the story.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
I’m not too sure about how much of this chapter could be used in the TV series. I have a feeling that some of the story of what happened to Roger in 1739 will be skipped over. The bit that really needs to be shown on screen is the moment Jamie tells Jenny about Roger and then Roger tells Jenny and Jamie about Brianna meeting Brian. These are such beautiful moments, and they’re important for Jenny to see that time travel really is real.
I’m not too sure about whether Cunningham and Cleveland will be included. Cunningham and his mother do get bigger roles throughout this book, and I love that we see a change to Mrs. Cunningham’s character later on. However, I’m not sure we’ll get the events that see the change to Mrs. Cunningham’s character. There just isn’t going to be a lot of time in the last season of the series.
