Ulysses makes a return in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 131

We haven’t seen Ulysses for some time. That last we saw, he had to leave River Run behind. In Outlander Book 9, Chapter 131, we get to find out what came of him after he left.

Of course, Ulysses doesn’t come back under good terms. He initially claims he is there for Jocasta, but he has a letter that puts the Frasers at risk. He has come to take their land.

We really get to see the type of man Ulysses is. I guess this shouldn’t be that surprising. The man didn’t have the best upbringing, and he likely thinks that he is owned something for the bad in his life. What better way to get that than by taking from Jamie? Of course, Jamie isn’t going down without a fight.

This chapter sets up more trouble for the Frasers. It puts Fraser’s Ridge as a whole at risk, and that’s sure to bring trouble in the next book.

I don’t expect to see this chapter used in the TV series. I’ll get to my thoughts on why this is. Part of it is due to time, but there are other reasons based on Ulysses’s character in the series.

Let’s dive into the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter.
