Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
This chapter simply continues a few storylines that have been coming up. There is a moment where Bree thinks about what William thinks of her now that he knows she’s his sister. This is important as it sets the tone going into Bree and William seeing each other again.
There’s also the pregnancy talk. Bree is furious when Roger brings it up, but it’s clear that she is pregnant after all. Could this be a good or bad thing for her heart? It sets up a plot point for them here.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
I don’t see the journey to Savannah via Charlotte and Charlestown happening. Okay, maybe some of the journey to Charlestown, but not the whole thing. I think there will be another way to deal with William wanting to give up his title and handle the knowledge of who his biological father is.
The bit that I do think we’ll see included in the show is Bree’s pregnancy. I suspect that the heart condition will be included, and the pregnancy is an important part of that story. It brings up more of the dangers of time travel, and the show has rarely mentioned them. We need to see them mentioned, especially if the show follows Buck’s storyline.
