  • At 2:14:47, when they're discussing possible scrying targets, Nott says Trent's name and Caleb immediately PTSD-freezes for a solid 10 seconds. Considering that Caleb still consistently refers to Ikithon as "that man" or "him," I really feel like they need to be more considerate about unexpectedly saying that name. I vote everyone refers to him only as "the fuckwad-in-chief."

  • It's been said in other comments that the two that have Sending are the two worst people for speaking succinctly. To counter that, casting Sending doesn't just happen without conscious effort. Whoever casts the spell CAN take just a freaking moment to prepare the 25 words (OR LESS) before casting the spell, instead of winging it ever damned time.

  • Just realized that there is a timeline where Fjord could have become an Echo knight, had they turned to Essek or had fjord had the possibility to make real contact with Luxon religious (like he would have done had Yasha not followed him the first time Ukotoa blocked his powers). Just throwing it out there.

  • Jester talking to Caleb after the incident in the jail just made me feel all the feels!!!! ❤️❤️ Jester obviously was worried and didn’t want to leave Caleb alone for even one minute after the incident. Which is why she sat thru the spell training even though she knew she would most likely not understand any of it. She then continued to stay with Caleb as he went shopping and helped pay for his stuff. I know she was serious when said she bought that gold dust to be used exclusively to help her with future pranks, but I also know she did so to make Caleb smile. She got him thinking on a happy future. ❤️❤️

  • I love how there mind set has kind of switched between the empire and the dynasty. Like they used to treat the dynasties capital like it was murder noe there mind set has complelty switched to they are looking at the empire capital as mordor without even relizing it since they have been in the dynasty for so long.

  • I had a weird realization this episode. So Jester is not allowed to show her face in Nicodranas because of what she did to that one guy in her backstory. But then when they stole The Mist(ake), they caused such a ruckus; specifically, Jester's duplicate "drowned." I wonder if they ever made the connection between that blue tiefling and the one who pissed off the local lord. Also, they started a whisper campaign that the M9 stole The Mist(ake) to free it from the criminal pirate Captain Jawgrasp, right? So I wonder if there's a chance that this would make it so she can be visible again in her home if she tried to frame their boat-thievery as heroic.

  • Okay, big question: how does dropping one class and starting over as a second class work? Is it just multiclassing. Is it multiclassing where you ignore all the Warlock abilities? Is it starting over at level one (multiclassing required the second class be first level) or do you level the second class up to level 9? This next one might be answered in game, but if you are a Warlock and get a different patron (in the case of a Paladin, it's a god/celestial) and you keep the Warlock powers, do the patronage abilities switch? It seems so confusing. Edit: Most of my questions were answered in the video.

So no, I'm not shippin' them, my hope is for Jester and Caleb - there's something that's just wholesome and... purifying, in a way, about that. Here's to hopin'! (Just an added comment as I'm scrolling down with all the Essek x Caleb shippers).
