Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter

I don’t see much in the way of foreshadowing in this chapter. We already know what’s to happen at this point. Frank is a historian. While he may have got a few details wrong as history is written by the victors, there are certain elements of history that are right. Usually, it’s dates and times that can be wrong based on how information travels. We know that Jamie is set to die at Kings Mountain.

This chapter is more about building Jamie’s worries. He isn’t afraid of death, but he is worried about what happens to Claire and the Ridge.

Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter

The chapter probably won’t be used directly in the series. However, there may be a few mentions of things from the chapter.

You see, chapters like this don’t work too well for TV shows. Everything is too internalized, which means we need to see Jamie talk to someone about the letter from Colonel Locke and discuss what he should do. The most likely person for that is Claire, although we could see him talking to Roger or Young Ian as well.

There isn’t really a need for the chapter, though. We just need a quick mention of the militias and groups around Fraser’s Ridge and who Jamie is likely to benefit from the most.
