Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter

I don’t think the chapter foreshadows too much. I guess there is that moment about the gangs forming. Jamie needs to figure out who he can trust on the Ridge. Not everyone is going to side with him. The war is coming to the backcountry, and it’s not as organized in terms of law as the towns.

Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter

I don’t see much of this chapter being used in the TV series. I suspect that a lot of the bits with Bluebell will be skipped completely as I don’t see the part of the story with the man coming into the show. We’ve seen Claire deal with her PTSD right away. As much as fans weren’t happy with the ether storyline, I appreciated the inclusion of it showing that someone as “strong” as Claire can have moments of weakness.

The bit that might be included is the bit about Fanny. There have been hints that Jane’s story will come into the show, which suggests that Fanny’s story will come up too. I would love to see Claire and Jamie take Fanny in, but it could be too much for the final season of the series. I have a feeling a lot of the focus is going to be on the back part of Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone.
