Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
The chapter still doesn’t foreshadow much. We’re in the moment, as we get to the end of this traumatic experience. The bear is dead, and the Ridge is safer. While there is still the loss of Amy, Aidan has been part of the process of killing the bear. Even Bree has found a way to be useful, and I’m sure she feels guilt for surviving when Amy didn’t. Survivor’s guilt is so hard to get over.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
Just like with the previous chapters, I don’t see this one being used. Again, I just don’t see the whole storyline being used.
If it is, it’s going to take up a small amount of time. Maybe it will take up the first part of an episode, but Amy just wasn’t a major character leading up to Outlander Season 7. She was there for Roger’s character development more than for her own sake.
There is going to be so much to cover in Outlander Season 8. This part has taken up three or four chapters now, and we have to think about all the other characters and storylines that need to fit into the final season. And the writers will need to bring closure to the whole series in the 10 episodes they have.
