Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
This chapter continues to show us the bond between William and Bree forming. We get more on the plot with Amaranthus, but the focus is on how William feels like he can talk to Bree about things.
As for foreshadowing, I think it’s in how William doesn’t completely react to Bree’s comments about how he is like Jamie and Ellen. He doesn’t really want to hear it right now, but he is starting to show signs of acceptance. He can’t change it, but he has a lot of deal with now that everything is out in the open.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
I would love to see how William turns to Bree for help in Outlander Season 8. As he learns the truth about his parentage, he needs someone who knows everything but doesn’t really hold any judgment. Bree gets it all, and I want to see that bond build between them.
I do expect the Amaranthus story to be included in some sort of way. This opens the opportunity to bring in this chapter in the show. We learn a lot through the questions characters ask. This is important for us to understand why Amaranthus can’t divorce Ben, but we need Bree to ask those questions. That means this chapter is needed.
