Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
The chapter is more about Jamie clearing his soul. He needs to be able to move forward in his life. While he hasn’t been told what to do to ask for forgiveness (because that’s not the Presbyterian way), it does seem like he’s a little lighter in the soul after confessing all to Roger.
There is that hint that the Revolutionary War is coming for Fraser’s Ridge. That’s not really foreshadowing, though. After all, we know no part of America is really safe from it.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
I would love to see this chapter used, but I don’t see it happening. I don’t see any of the parts with Claire’s rapist being used, as it seems we’re over that part of the story in the series. With only 10 episodes in Outlander Season 8, things have to remain focused on the bigger parts of the story.
That doesn’t mean we can’t see some quiet moments between Jamie and Roger. I would still love to see Jamie show his signs of respect for Roger’s choices. As much as Jamie didn’t like Roger at first, Roger is doing what he was born to do. It’s time for Jamie to show that he recognizes that.
