Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
I don’t see too much in the way of foreshadowing in this chapter. It’s more about plot development. We’ve wondered for a while what Cunningham is up to, and now we find out. It turns out that he is causing trouble for Jamie.
Now it’s time to deal with the situation at hand. The question for Jamie is how to manage it. He can’t just kill Cunningham or move him from his home. He needs to go around Cunningham to stay safe.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
I certainly see this chapter being used in Outlander Season 8. I wasn’t too sure about the Cunningham parts at first. I couldn’t remember his role in the rest of the story. I could see all of Cunningham’s parts being condensed into one episode, though. This is something for the Frasers to quickly deal with.
After all, there are much bigger bads in the book than Cunningham. The captain is a standard villain who just thinks he’s doing the right thing. If Jamie was on this side of the war, we’d be routing for him in these actions. It’s important for us to see that Jamie understands this but also takes action to protect himself and the men who follow him.
