Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter

There is a small bit of foreshadowing in this chapter. Bree feels nauseous. She puts it down to thinking about the dead general the night before, but it’s clear that it is something else. This all happens as she thinks of Jem and Mandy, and we just didn’t realize at the time that she’s pregnant again.

That’s all I see, though. Maybe that there’s the potential for a storyline for William with John Cinnamon, but that’s more plot development than anything else.

I guess there is also a bit of foreshadowing that William will need to turn to Jamie for help to save Lord John Grey in the future. Jamie won’t mind William calling John father, and he will definitely go to help William save John should the need arise.

Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter

I would like to see this chapter being used in some sort of way. It’s the bit where William starts to call John father. I want to see Bree note that Jamie won’t mind what William calls John. After all, the man has raised William like a son. Of course there is going to be that bond.

It’s hard to tell if the Savannah storyline will be used in Outlander Season 8. I think it should to bring up the Siege of Savannah and to see what Roger finds he can do in the war. This would mean separating Bree and Roger for a while, with Bree understanding how Claire feels every time Jamie is on the battlefield. Then we’d get their reunion from this chapter.

Will there be enough time for it all? That’s the part that I’m concerned with considering there are only 10 episodes in the final season.
