Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter

This chapter is bringing everyone back together on the Ridge, preparing for the start of the next book. We can get this sense of closure happening.

I think I also sense a bit of foreshadowing that things are going to be better for Claire and Jamie. Whenever the two are alone on the Ridge, trouble happens. It seems like one they have family around, there is little to worry about. There is safety in numbers.

Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter

This chapter may partly be used. I think we’ll have some sort of voiceover from Claire about Jamie training the militia. We may get a quick cut of it. However, I don’t think we need to see it all play out in the series.

The only part that I think could be necessary is Hiram talking to Jamie. We’ve already been introduced to the man, and it would make sense to show us as viewers that Hiram is on Jamie’s side and that he wants to make that clear to everyone else. Up to this point, we’ve seen Jamie offer a sense of trust in Hiram when he has had to go away, so why not continue that for us?

The other part I could see included for fun is the race between Jamie and Ian. This does lead to them seeing the MacKenzies return, and it’s just a bit of light-heartedness within a tougher part of the story when it comes to drama.
