Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
The chapter offers us a look at the type of character development William is going through. We have to remember that he is a young man in his early 20s. He is just figuring out who he is and what he wants to do in life. These aren’t things he’s had the liberty to think about before.
I love that we see bits of Jamie and John still in him. William is a good man, and he’ll figure it all out. This chapter hints at that. He is willing to learn and grow.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
I would love to see this chapter used in the series. I’m sure William will learn about his real identity, and that is going to play a part in the storyline. We need to see as he struggles with who he thought he was and where he actually came from.
However, there have been no signs that we’ll see Hal in the series. That makes me doubt that we’ll see this chapter play out. I guess we could see the part passed onto someone else we have already met, but I don’t think it will have the impact on William that Hal giving the advice does. Hal is family, and he has made it clear that William is still his family regardless of paternity. That’s important to William.
