Roger thinks about the condemned in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 68
We remain in Charles Town in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 68. It’s a short chapter with a lot of focus on Roger’s thoughts.
Roger has stepped outside of the print shop after dinner, where he spends some time thinking. As he looks at Fergus’s work, he realizes how the papers look like those from his own time period. This leads to him thinking about how a preacher tends to walk with the condemned. That’s something Roger will need to do, but what would he say to them.
He’s surprised by where his thoughts take him. I love that he’s very much settled in what he wants to do in this time period, though, even as he and Fergus pass gold between each other to buy weapons.
The chapter seems to be mostly about plot development for Roger. Well, it’s more like character development for him. I don’t think it foreshadows all that much.
I don’t think that it will be used in the TV series, though. I’ll get to my thoughts on that in the adaptation section.
Let’s dive into Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone Chapter 68.
