Xira, no. I have an intense urge to bap him with a rolled up newspaper.

But also, *pops corn* Looking forward to next week!

Okay, your comment actually made me lol - not that I think bapping Xira would work any better with him than it does in dog training, but still - the visual!

Part of me hopes that Jonan smacks Xira out of casting with his cane (since Jonan had a !! moment on this page)

Another part of me hopes that Xira's panicking so much that he miscasts and forgets what the heck his deal with Iavin was entirely, leaving it a terrible mystery to hang over our heads until Iavin shows up in person to ruin everything : D

I like the way you think.
And considering the past history of cast spells (octopus hands, bone tail, dragon (?) feet and now thoughts broadcaster), he doesn't even need to be panicking to miscast.

Nope. Jonan doesn't like the sound of Xira and a secret accomplice having anything to do with Loa. But I'll be so sad if Xira successfully brainwashes his friends. :( That's not how you make friends my friend.

...oh no. :(

I know that comment doesn’t really contribute to any sort of conversation, but, just. That’s just my feelings on this page. Oh no. :(

Xira... No, not a good idea.

I'm so prepared for Jonan to do something to deescalate the situation on the next page. Maybe golf clubbing Xira into the river.

And then Sev too bc calm down Sev.

"It's okay, I'm just tagging along to help your worst enemy rob the one person who might be able to help you, nothing to worry about."

This has not been a good trip for a person who is basically Made Of Secrets.

I'm more curious than ever about the miscast that Iavin (and now maybe also Xira?) is trying to solve. We still know basically nothing about what's actually motivating either of them, and without that, I'm not sure whether Xira is really the well-meaning-but-way-too-reliant-on-lies-and-manipulation person that he's seemed to be so far, or if he's actually up to something more nefarious.

Xira.
Xira no.
That's not a good solution.


But also how sweet is it that Sev's first idea on knowing Xira was talking to Iavin was "he's in trouble I have to help him" instead of "he's trouble" ?

I love how Sev's eyeline in panel 2 looks like it's connected to the text of Xira's thought (which is perfect because that thought is what Sev is actually responding to!).

Having gone back for a second look, I'm wondering if what Xira is going to cast is actually the counter to the problem rather than anything bad. I certainly hope so!

I'm also getting the feeling that Xira isn't so happy about having Iavin in his head - we know he is a nasty piece of work, does he have some kind of hold on Xira to make him go along with this?

(spoiler alert don't read this if you haven't voted)

*Xira attracts horde of literal followers asking questions he doesn't want to answer in a manner which essentially equates clicking refresh on his thoughts to load more kitten pics constantly*

Jonan's old teacher's name is Loa right? Isn't that also what the spirits of Haitian Vodou and Louisiana Voodoo are called?

Loa Loa is incidentally also the name of a parasitic worm. Though that is less likely to be related than the vodou spirits.
