Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
This chapter certainly foreshadows a change in Jamie’s feelings toward John. Jamie was angry, but it seems like some of that anger is subsiding. Distance helps; allowing Jamie time to heal from the pain of what he likely thought was betrayal. John was just being honest after years of hiding things. Jamie and Claire thinking of a letter from John certainly suggests that he will come back up.
What about the letters for Germain and Fanny? I think we just have foreshadowing of some news from Marsali. In fact, I think even JQM telling Claire to tell the bees about the news is foreshadowing that there is news to come.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
I don’t see this chapter being used in the TV series. I’m sure we’ve already had a moment with the bees in Outlander Season 4. Didn’t Jamie tell Bree about the bees when they were together? Surely, JQM wouldn’t need to tell Claire as Jamie would have already said something if they have bees on the Ridge.
JQM also only tends to be used when there is some sort of fight that’s needed. We saw him at the end of Outlander Season 6, but then he was just mentioned in Season 7. I guess this will all depend on whether Kyle Rees is available to film episodes if the writers want to include him in.
