Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
This chapter certainly makes it clear that Amaranthus is a smart woman. She is calculating, and there’s plenty of foreshadowing that she is up to something. She wants money and power, but is there another ulterior motive in there, too.
I find it suspicious that Amaranthus’s storyline is connected to Ben, which is connected to Captain Richardson. These sorts of connections are never coincidental in Diana Gabaldon’s books, so why would she start now?
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
It’s hard to say just how much of William’s storyline will be included in Outlander Season 8. I don’t think we’ll see much of John and Hal’s storyline, but that would mean cutting out the Ben storyline. Without Ben, would William really go in search for Amaranthus?
I guess Amaranthus coming into the story could be written in slightly different in the show. We could see her coming to find William for help finding Ben instead. This would allow this conversation to sort of happen, and it would mean for the rest of William’s storyline to develop.
