Claire and Elspeth spend the night in fear in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 109
You would think considering the situation that Claire and Elspeth would remain far away from each other. Yet, Elspeth comes to the house in Outlander Book 9. Chapter 109.
The chapter starts with Claire realizing that she needs to do something to take her mind off Jamie. Elspeth turns up at the door, and the two women decide that it’s only right that they spend the night together in fear for their respective men.
Elspeth has known about her son’s plans for some time. She is worried for her son, but makes a note that he believes himself to be invincible right now. Claire is worried about Jamie knowing that Cunningham has built up to this over the course of time and she and Jamie have only just found out the truth. What will happen that night?
We do get some time at the Lodge to see how Jamie assesses the situation. This is important as we see how Claire and Elspeth take comfort in each other’s fears.
The chapter doesn’t foreshadow too much, except maybe in the statement of “seven years.” I’ll get to my thoughts on that in the foreshadowing section.
What about using this chapter in the TV series? I think there is a chance of something like that happening, and I’ll get to that in the adaptation section.
Let’s dive into the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter.
