Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
This chapter certainly seems to continue this plot that Fergus is the son of Comte St. Germain, but that’s not the foreshadowing that I see. I see something interesting in the way the lawyer was so certain that the Americans would win the war. Is it possible that he is a fellow time traveler? Could he be connected to the Comte and Fergus in some sort of way?
I also think that with Roger’s question about Claire and the Beauchamp name that something is going to come up with that. It seems strange that it hasn’t up to this point, but then the focus as been on Percy finding Fergus. Now it’s time to expand that family line.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
The chapter isn’t likely to be used in the TV series. This was a storyline that I wasn’t too sure about from the beginning, but with the news that Marsali and Fergus won’t be in Outlander Season 7B, I’m pretty certain that the whole Percy storyline will be skipped over. There just won’t be enough time to do it justice, and I’m not sure it’s really needed for the overall story.
There is so much else going on. The focus is likely to be on Captain Richardson being the big bad and how he could connect to someone from the 1980s.
