To answer questions about Outlander, please sign up.
Jessica She did not brush it off, there is no plot hole. To know, you must continue reading. Outlander is part of a series, not a stand alone novel.
Sally This was not left behind or ignored. It's picked up again later in the series.
Tina No, you didn't dream it. Another hole left behind. Gabaldon should have made Geillis more significant. Instead, she brushed it off.
