Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
This chapter is more about showing the day-to-day life in Charles Town for Marsali and Fergus. It’s also about making it clear that the town isn’t all that safe. Tensions are high between the two sides, and anyone who shows loyalty to one side over the other is going to get attacked.
We saw a lot of focus on burning printers who were Loyalists in previous books. However, there are those after printers on the side of the Rebels, too.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
We know that Fergus and Marsali won’t be in Outlander Season 7B. With that in mind, I doubt that we’ll get to see them a lot in the final season. There may just be a cameo at the end. So, because of that, I doubt that any of this part of the story is going to be included in the final season.
We should see what life is like for printers, though. We need to see how people are reacting and what life is like in the time period. Bree has spent so long in the 1970s and 1980s up to this point that she needs the reminder of the dangers of the past. This is a great way to do that, and there are ways to work around the lack of Marsali and Fergus.
