Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
There’s a lot that doesn’t make sense with this chapter, but it’s clear that there’s more to come to help explain it. Denys has always been a questionable character, but the last we saw of him, he told William not to trust Richardson.
Now we get this encounter. It’s clear that Denys is working with Richardson in some sort of way. What happened to not trusting him?
Then there’s the fact that Richardson knows Bree. How? We haven’t seen any interaction between Bree and Richardson up to this point. He could know of her, but it made it seem like he knew her personally. That certainly foreshadows something to come. It certainly felt more than just a threat.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
I suspect that we’ll see this chapter used. At least, I suspect we’ll see some of it used. I’m in two minds about whether Denys Randall will show up in Outlander, but we’ve already seen Captain Richardson, and it’s clear that he’s up to something. So, I wouldn’t be surprised if he got a bigger role going into the final season.
I’m ready to see how his story plays out. I can’t wait to see who he really is, what he really wants, and whether he’ll succeed. That means we need to see everything he’s involved in play out in the series.
