William continues his search for Amaranthus in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 130.
There are a lot of questions that come up at the end of Outlander Book 9, Chapter 130. That’s especially the case about Captain Richardson.
William makes it to Charles Town at the start of this chapter, and he immediately comes across Denys Randall, who offers to look out for Ban Tarleton, who William thinks will know where Amaranthus is.
It turns out that Tarleton isn’t in Charles Town. Neither is Amaranthus. Her name also isn’t on any of the ship rosters. Did she charter a private ship? Has she run off with someone? I find it suspicious that both Randall and Captain Richardson turn up in this chapter.
I also feel like this chapter makes us forget something about Richardson considering the last time we saw him. Wasn’t he wearing a blue coat the last time? I get the sense that he’s back to being British in this chapter. Maybe I missed something in the reading.
This chapter certainly seems to push the plot forward when it comes to who Richardson is and what he wants. I’ll get to my thoughts on that in the foreshadowing section.
I suspect that at least some of this chapter will be used in the TV series. The parts with Denys Randall I’m not too sure about, though. I’ll get to my thoughts on why in the adaptation section.
Let’s dive into Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone Chapter 130.
