Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter

I don’t see too much in the way of foreshadowing. There’s certainly some plot development with the focus on figuring out who shot Cunningham in the back. Claire hopes that it wasn’t Jamie, but who would shoot a man in the back? This surely has to be addressed.

If there is any foreshadowing, it’s in Fanny gaining more confidence as Claire’s assistant. However, I think we’ve already seen her growth in this, and it’s more like continuing a small plot point.

Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter

The chapter could be used in the TV series. I think the Cunningham storyline is going to be needed to show how the Revolutionary War reaches the backcountry. This would mean we’d need to see this fight play out and Cunningham end up injured.

It’s rare that we see a focus on disabilities in period dramas. Having this chapter opens up that conversation for Claire. She knows what it would be like for people in her own time, but what about this time period? It’s worth the storyline to open up that discussion.
