Outlander Book 9, Chapter 95 starts inside the General’s tent. Bree is doing the portrait while mourners come in.
It’s a quiet moment to start for Bree. She is focused on the task at hand, while trying to avoid disturbing any of the mourners. However, she does worry about William being there, wondering whether he is trying to gather intelligence to send back to the British.
When General Lincoln comes in to pay respects to his fallen comrade, Bree realizes that she’s witnessing history being made. That is broken when a Frenchman puts his hand on Pulaski’s chest and it leads to some of the gasses from the body being released. Yes, it really does smell.
This chapter doesn’t foreshadow too much. There is the potential of some plot development with John Cinnamon learning more about William and his parentage. It looks like he hasn’t been told everything yet. However, I don’t really see it as foreshadowing.
I don’t think that we’ll see this chapter being used in the TV series, and there isn’t really much use for it in the grand scheme of things. I’ll get to my thoughts on that in the adaptation section of the post.
Let’s get into Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone Chapter 95.
