Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
I don’t remember the book enough from my first read-through to know if this comes up again. Is it just a quick lesson for Brianna to learn, or is there something at the Ridge that happens? I guess it could just keep us focused on the time period and the dangers with the war coming up.
I’m sure I remember the connections here led to the militia being formed. I just can’t remember clearly enough.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
While I would love to meet Mary Patton, I’m not sure we’ll see this chapter used, unless it does have a bigger impact later. There won’t be a lot of time to tell the Book 9 story in Outlander Season 8. A lot of moments like this could be mentioned in passing, such as Bree telling Roger that she got some gunpowder from Mary.
There is an element of the chapter that I would like to see used: Bree’s mistake. I think she’s been so used to the comforts and somewhat safety of the 20th century again that it may have slipped her mind on the dangers of the 18th century.
