Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
This chapter includes some plot development. Jamie is learning who is definitely on his side, who may not be, and who he needs to be wary of. This is all important for the things that are coming. We don’t need the rest of the book to know that the Revolutionary War is close to them.
So, I view this chapter more of setting up the next part of the plot for the Revolutionary War rather than foreshadowing of anything.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
I expect that we’ll see something from this chapter used in the TV series. It may not be exactly as it was done, but we’ll get to see Jamie share his side in the war and what he will do to protect the people of the Ridge. I think we’ll see him stand up and share that he is going to build a militia to protect the people.
This is important to include. We need to see what he will do as the laird of Fraser’s Ridge. He also needs to make it clear that while he has been away for some time, he is still the laird of the people. He also needs to show that Roger is by his side, which happens during that church service.
