Claire brings up Bluebell’s master in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 19

Claire suffers from a wave of PTSD in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 19. It reminds us that PTSD can affect someone at any time without any warning.

This chapter starts off with a discussion about Fanny’s name and where she comes from. However, it turns into a discussion about Bluebell and his former master. We get some wonderful insights into who Jamie is and why he took the dog in when he did.

The chapter is also an insight into PTSD. I wondered for a long time why Claire didn’t see to be all that affected by her trauma. I still think that she should have been more affected at the beginning, but I’m happy to see something come up now—not happy for her, but happy that the topic of PTSD comes up.

I don’t see all that much in the way of foreshadowing in this chapter, though. I’ll get to my thoughts in the foreshadowing section.

As for the adaptation, I don’t expect to see much of the chapter used in the series. I’ll get to my thoughts on what could be used depending on what the writers do with Outlander Season 7B.

Let’s dive into Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone Chapter 19.
