Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
The chapter doesn’t foreshadow all that much. It continues the storyline of finding out who Jane and Fanny are, and it is focused on finding somewhere for the Hardmans to go. There isn’t really that much that teases particular storylines.
However, one thing I do notice is the “too many women” line. I do wonder if this is a way to foreshadow that Young Ian will lose one of them. I do feel like Emily naming Oggy is closure for their storyline. It’s time for them to fully separate from each other’s lives, and that gives Rachel a chance to see that her husband is her husband.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
The chapter may partly be used in the TV series. It all depends on whether the Fanny and Jane storyline will be used. I don’t think we’ll see the Hardman storyline used, which takes out that part of the story. It just adds too much into the final season, which only has 10 episodes.
The Fanny and Jane storyline could certainly be included. This gives us more of an insight into who William is, especially as he turns to Jamie for help in finding Fanny somewhere to go after Jane’s death. Of course, the Frasers are going to want to find out more about Jane, so it leads to Young Ian heading into the brothel for some answers.
