Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter

I don’t see any foreshadowing in this chapter. This is more about setting up the plot for the next few chapters. We need to know where Bree and the family are going and why.

One thing that I think it offers is a look at respect and trust. Bree doesn’t tell John all the reasons why she’s going to Charlestown, but that’s not due to a lack of trust in John. Part of it is because the letter could end up in the wrong hands. Another part of it is likely respect. She knows that John is on the opposite side, and she isn’t going to make her plans known to help the Rebels.

Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter

We don’t tend to see the chapters with letters used in Outlander. There was a moment in Outlander Season 7A, but that was more of cutting to Bree and Roger reading what we saw play out in the episode first. It makes sense to do something like that as we’re shown the events and not just told.

Having a scene of Bree writing a letter to John doesn’t make sense. It’s best her just mentioning that she has written to Lord John Grey and things are set up for them to go to Charlestown and then Savannah.
