Percy returns to try once more in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 100

We start the chapter with Lord John Grey and Mrs. Fleury, but it soon turns into something with Percy. He returns in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 100 as he tries again to get Fergus to listen to him and accept his proposal.

This chapter also involves William and Amaranthus. It’s easy to forget about her at first. After al, she’s only been in a few chapters up to this point and hasn’t had a major role. It’s clear from this chapter that she’s up to something, though.

I do feel like there is foreshadowing in the observations that Mrs. Fleury makes. And no, I don’t think Mrs. Fleury was flirting with Lord John Grey, although I wouldn’t blame her if she was.

As for Percy, he thinks he’s found another way to get Lord John Grey to change Fergus’s mind. Can people please pay attention to the fact that Fergus has his own mind? John makes it clear that he can’t do anything if Fergus doesn’t want to, and I love that he understands Jamie’s adopted son well just based on the little that he’s seen of him.

I doubt a lot of this chapter will be used in the TV series. However, I’m curious about the Amaranthus parts of the story, and I’ll get to my thoughts on that in the foreshadowing section.
