Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
The chapter doesn’t foreshadow all that much. I think it’s more of a reminder of where we are in history. After all, you can’t really foreshadow an event that we already know has to happen based on historical texts.
I think this is more about getting Bree and Roger to where they need to be for the next part of the story. After all, we know Bree was doing the portrait for another reason.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
I don’t think there will be time for all of this chapter. I’m in two minds about whether Bree will even head to Savannah for the portrait. I could see it being mentioned rather than shown.
Lord John Grey isn’t a major character in the show as he is in the books. However, William is, and we know that Lord John Grey arranged for Bree to do the portrait so that she could go to William and help him. I could see that part still playing out, allowing us to see William and Bree see each other again after William learns the truth about who he is to Jamie.
