Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter

This chapter doesn’t really foreshadow that much. I think it’s more of a focus on what the war is doing to people. There are those who are so black and white in their thinking that they forget what it’s like to be human. This happens in real life, and it’s so important to show it in fiction.

If there was a bit more of an argument or a threat made between Cleveland and Jamie, I would say that it foreshadowed something or built up the plot. However, the event within itself was a little anticlimactic.

Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter

This chapter could be used as a way to show the realities of war. We need to see how people react, and that a lot forget that Loyalists are still people and deserve a fair trial. Of course, we did see some of this against Claire at the end of Outlander Season 6.

There just may not be enough time to show it all. I think this will depend on whether the Cunningham storyline is used and just how much time is spent on Kings Mountain. After all, there will be a lot of storylines to wrap up at the end of Outlander Season 8. It is the final season, which means everything needs to be tied up.
