Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
I do wonder if people will wonder about the Hardmans in this chapter, but I get the sense that they aren’t all that important in this community. Nobody really cares, and we see the differences between how the white people live and how the Native Americans live.
This chapter seems to foreshadow Young Ian finding Emily. While she isn’t with her entire village, I think we get this sense of foreshadowing that she is going to be okay. The Mohawk people are good people, and they will always look after their own.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
I doubt we’ll see this chapter. I don’t think the Hardmans will be introduced in the TV series as it’s just an extra small element to the story that isn’t really all that necessary. It will mean Young Ian going to see them isn’t needed as Jamie wouldn’t send him there.
I’m still in two minds over whether Ian’s storyline here will be used at all. I think it will to bring a lot of closure to the Ian/Emily storyline in the TV series. I also think Rachel will need that to know that Ian has truly moved onto her. However, the Hardmans aren’t all that necessary to tell the story.
