Just the Outlander chapter

William decides that he needs to find Amaranthus. This is when Lord John Grey points out that she could be going to her father in Philadelphia—which is where she said she was going—or she could be heading to Ben. Later on, John warns William that if Amaranthus has gone to Ben that William can’t go after her. Ben is sure to kill William.

William puts on a red coat and has his commission papers. Two chapters ago, William had thought about taking a commission, and it looks like he is doing so. He knows that it will be safer for him to travel this way. Is this a way of him accepting that he is still the man he used to be despite Jamie being his biological father?

In this chapter, we also learn that Hal is getting ready to head back to England, although it sounds like his asthma is back. William knows that Hal is going to see the House of Lords to discuss the Revolutionary War, but he also likely wants to see Minnie, his wife. She needs to be updated with everything happening.

As William rides out, he realizes that all the horses are accounted for. Amaranthus either took a private coach or she had help getting away. And so, it’s time for William to head off in search for this woman who has lied about so much up to this point.
