Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
I think a lot of this storyline for Roger is about wrapping up things that have been books in the making. During The Fiery Cross, Roger started to see what he should do. Then in A Breath of Snow and Ashes, he started that journey. It was put on hold in An Echo in the Bone and Written in My Own Heart’s Blood, but now it’s time to wrap it up.
I don’t see much in the way of foreshadowing. It’s simply about explaining Roger’s mind, which is important for character development.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
The chapter probably won’t be used in the TV series. There’s been nothing in the TV show to say that Roger isn’t yet ordained. However, that part hasn’t been made clear.
The problem with this chapter is that it also combines with some of Fergus and Marsali’s story. They aren’t as big in the TV series as they are in the books, so I do wonder if a lot of this will be avoided to keep the focus on the Revolutionary War and what Bree and Roger can do to help with Ridge.
