Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter

I think this chapter makes it clear that Amaranthus is up to something. Mrs. Fleury points out that she isn’t pining for her husband. Why is that? Why wouldn’t she be worried about Benjamin when he’s potentially a prisoner of war?

She really wants William. I swear this is the foreshadowing that we need to know she isn’t someone to trust. I haven’t trusted her from the start, but this chapter stands out as the moment that it’s clear there is something more going on. John is so focused on Percy, though, and he needs to look at someone else.

Adapting the Go Tell the Bees that I Am Gone chapter

Is there a chance that this chapter will be used? I think some of it might. The bit that I suspect will be skipped is with Percy. I just don’t see any of the Percy storyline being used considering Lord John Grey isn’t as big of a character in the show as he is in the books. Fergus’s storyline probably won’t have time to come up in the final season, either.

The bit that I think may be used is the bit with Amaranthus and William. I have a feeling that Amaranthus may be pulled into the story with Captain Richardson—I’m sure he’s going to be the main villain of the final season—and this chapter would be perfect to show her interests in William. It’s clear that they both have feelings for each other, but William is being played.
