Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
I think there is some foreshadowing in this post. William reminds Hal that he has resigned his commission. It means that William isn’t under the command of Hal, and that’s more to say that Hal can’t stop William from finding Tarleton.
However, I get a sense of foreshadowing in this. Is William’s lack of commission going to come in handy at a later point? Maybe at some point in the 10th book? Could it end up being a hindrance when he needs something?
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
I don’t think this chapter is going to be used in the TV series. That’s mostly because I don’t think John and Hal’s parts will be big in Outlander Season 8. That being said, I am curious about whether the search for Ben will be used as it’s clearly connected to Richardson and Amaranthus. This is the way to keep William’s storyline going.
There just isn’t enough time for everything, but we need to see William’s story continue once he finds out that Jamie is his father. The Ben storyline makes a lot of sense as it would then eventually potentially combine with Jamie and Claire’s storyline considering who Richardson is.
