Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
There isn’t much in the way of foreshadowing in this chapter. This is more about plot development. It’s clear that everyone is getting ready for something to happen. Jamie makes it clear that the night is evil.
We already knew that Cunningham was up to something. It looks like just as Jamie and Claire find out what Cunningham was doing, the plan is set in motion. It’s surprising that with all the experience Jamie has and the suspicions that he had, he didn’t see Cunningham doing more. Is this a little shortsighted of him?
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
I wasn’t sure at first if Cunningham’s parts would be included in the TV series. As we get to this point, I think more and more that it will. This would be a great storyline for an episode as we see how the tensions grow at the Ridge. It’s important to see who is loyal to Jamie and who isn’t.
All of Cunningham’s storyline could fit into one episode. There’s no need to really drag this out. If it is going to drag out, I could see something like the storyline in Paris where Claire and Mary were attacked and it took until close to the end of the season to find out that the Duke of Sandringham sent his man out to hurt Claire. The seeds are placed and then they sprout toward the end of the season.
