Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
I don’t feel like this chapter foreshadows too much. It’s more about bringing some closure. Rachel gets a chance to see who Ian’s first wife is, so she is no longer living with some sort of memory or ghosts. She also gets to meet Emily’s family, including a boy who could be Ian’s.
This chapter also allows for closure between Ian and Emily. They have both moved on, and it’s clear they are both happy in their own ways. There’s no need for the two of them to come face to face again.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
I would love to see this chapter used in the TV series. It brings some closure to the story for Ian and Emily, and I think we need to see that as Rachel comes into the story more.
So far, we have had Ian naming Emily’s son, along with it being made clear that he is Ian’s biological son. It would make sense to have this storyline, allowing Emily to name Oggy and then request that Ian take Totis to protect him. While the TV show has changed who Emily’s new man is, it doesn’t mean that Emily can’t have the dreams that there is a risk to her eldest child.
