Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter

It’s hard to tell what is foreshadowing at this point. Something that stands out for me, though, is how Amaranthus got away. All the horses are accounted for, which means she left with someone else. Is this foreshadowing of her being connected to a bigger plot against William and the Grey family? I certainly think it is.

There also seems to be some foreshadowing of William finding his place. That’s what this book has been about for William. He thinks about what he shouldn’t be entitled to now, but I think he realizes that his parentage doesn’t mean everything.

Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter

The only part of this chapter that I think we’ll see play out is William going after Amaranthus. This could be done in an episode with other parts of the story, meaning we could see Lord John Grey but there isn’t the need to have Hal Grey in the story.

Amaranthus is such a major part of William’s story in Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone, that I’m sure she’ll be needed in Outlander Season 8. I also think there’s a bigger part of her involvement in Richardson’s story. So, I suspect we’ll see everything for her play out, and that includes William going off to find her. After all, John needs to be left alone at some point.
