Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
I don’t get much in the way of foreshadowing in this chapter. This seems to be more about finally wrapping up Roger’s journey to becoming a minister. It’s only take something like four or five books to see it happen.
I think it’s also about offering hope for the future. The Revolutionary War is more than just about breaking away from the Crown. It’s about so many other rights and freedoms.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
It’s hard to say if we’ll see Roger’s full ordination. Outlander Season 7A seemed to suggest that Roger had done everything that he needed to do. There hasn’t been much of a discussion past that. This could mostly be due to Bree and Roger having to travel through the stones to save Mandy because of her heart, though.
As we see Roger and Bree back in the past, as I’m sure we will, then we’ll know if Roger is fully ordained or not. I would love to see this chapter play out, though. I really want to see how proud Jamie is considering everything that the two have been through and how far they’ve come since the fourth season.
If the main part of the chapter can’t happen, I would love to see the end of it be included in some way. Jamie and Claire talking about the Freedom of Religion seems so important to me as it adds another reason for Jamie to fight on the Rebel side of the Revolutionary War.
