There is tension in the air in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 108

Claire and Jamie can both feel the tension in the air in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 108. There is little that they can do right now, though.

The chapter sees the two have to separate temporarily. Of course, Claire worries that this is the night that Jamie is taken from her. It’s funny how Claire points out that Frank wouldn’t get history wrong because he can’t if he wanted to be taken seriously in his field, but she doesn’t point that out right now.

Cunningham is an immediate threat. It’s easy to forget what’s supposed to happen in history when you have these moments playing out. And maybe it doesn’t help that Claire and Jamie are just assuming that Frank is right, but Claire knows deep down that historians can get things wrong. By knowing the future, things can be changed.

Jamie is on edge. That is clear as he heads to the Meeting House, where there are both Loyalists and Rebels. What will Jamie do, and will this be the night that Cunningham attacks?

This chapter certainly brings us plot development. I don’t see much in the way of foreshadowing, and I’ll get to my thoughts on that in the foreshadowing section.

Will it be used in the TV series? I suspect that we will see this, and I’ll get to my thoughts on that in the adaptation section.

Let’s dive into the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter.
