Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter

I don’t see too much in the way of foreshadowing. This is more about rounding out some of the plots as we get toward the end of Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone.

The bit of foreshadowing that I do see is in how Jamie worries that the men will still turn on him. I get a sense that this foreshadows trouble still to come for Jamie. The talk of Elspeth possibly dying also seems to foreshadow that death is coming for someone. And we know what is supposed to come at the Battle of Kings Mountain.

Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter

Will the chapter be used in the TV series? I think some of it will but not all of it. I do suspect that we’ll see an episode where there is trouble at the Ridge. It’s important to show that the Revolutionary War reaches the Ridge and what people in the backcountry are dealing with.

I think we’ll see the aftermath of it, too. I’m sure we’ll see Jamie kick the tenants out and then the women come to him for him to reconsider. If Elspeth is included in the story, I’m sure we’ll see what happens to the Cunninghams. What I don’t think we’ll see is Agnes. I think there’s just too much going on for just 10 episodes in the final season to include all the details.
