Lord John Grey asks Percy for a favor in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 151

As we get toward the end of Outlander Book 9, there is a concern for Lord John Grey. Right now, he’s a prisoner. Is there a way out of this one?

This chapter paints a bleak picture for John. Right now, he’s held as a prisoner on a ship. When he is allowed to exercise, he’s watched over by someone. While he’s given food and books, he is chained so that he can’t escape.

The only thing keeping John alive right now is Hal. It’s clear that Richardson hasn’t found Hal just yet. The minute Richardson does find him, things could take a turn. That leads to John asking Percy for a favor, which could actually lead to John being saved.

I think this chapter certainly foreshadows the way that John is going to be saved. I’ll get to my thoughts on that in the foreshadowing section, but it all comes down to memories of pre-Prestonpans.

Will this chapter be used in the adaptation? Yes and no. I think some of it will be but not all of it. I’ll get to my thought son this in the adaptation section.

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