Spoilers for SVTFOE
So I want to make a post on this while the thought/s is/are fresh in my head. So in the season 2 finale of svtfoe we’re treated to many things, a missing Glossaryck, Ludo’s family, Toffee regenerating his arm assuming control of Ludo, absorbing the high council of magic and Star finally admitting she has feelings for Marco.
I do wonder where and what Glossaryck is/is doing in all this, I have some inklings on why he might be gone but not where he is. I suspect that in the endgame he’ll return and train star, but I suspect Glossaryck has wanted to leave for awhile now. He lacks real freedom, he is and presumably always has been bound to the spell book and the Butterfly family before the wand was separated. This also explains why he doesn’t have a “side”, because until now there hasn’t been a side. There has only been one wand and it belonged to the Butterfly family. While we know Glossaryck pretty much can do whatever he wants, I suspect he wants freedom more than anything. I mean look at his pictures in each of the tapestries it’s always the same frown, he looks miserable and unhappy.
Ludo’s family is next on my list, this is probably most shocking because Ludo always seemed to speak of them as though they were “dead” or “gone”. What is also shocking though is that there’s a level of nobility and hierarchy amongst the monsters there’s not just disorganised choas. The Butterfly family is also aware of their standing and treats them as she would any nobility. This would likely indicate some level of familiarity or history between the two families.
Toffee’s arm, well we all knew he was coming back. After all Toffee is the only real antagonist we have in the series, Ludo is more misunderstood and searching to create his own story as opposed to being truly antagonistic. I didn’t expect the wand to be what would return him to the “flesh” if you will, most of us expected him to restore himself through his severed finger. The show itself even seem to imply that, that was what was going to happen through Miss Heinous and her part lizard body guard whose name escapes me right because he can regenerate from only a arm. Toffee has picked up some new tricks since we last saw him, even being an impressive magic user albeit he’s only able to use magic because of the wand gem. He made quick work of the high council of magic Moon included. We also see that in his new abilities he can absorb the magic and seemingly life force of others which explains the fritz across the multiverse. We also see he wants his finger or rather that he’s coming to get it, why? Who knows maybe it’ll make his magic even more powerful, maybe he just wants to be “complete”.
Then we have Star returning home unaware of the danger coming for her she tries to mend her strained friendship with Marco, Moon then tells her alone of the danger coming for her and that she must return to Mewni. So in the end before she is forced to leave she decides tell Marco how she feels in front of everyone. This leads to Marco running up to her room trying to tell her something, presumably how he feels that’s just a guess though. Star’s room returns to normal and she’s gone, cut to credits of just Marco’s house, no music just his house. Now some people have said don’t worry Marco has dimensional scissors, but if I may interject my own concerns, Heckapoo the crafter and forger of all dimensional scissors is well let’s just say gone for lack of a better term. So who knows if the scissors will still work, we saw Moon’s work to place the bodies of the high council of magic somewhere but who knows if that’ll last or if it’s fleeting residual magic.
So yeah my long winded post that’s probably full of typos is done, I’ll go back through and edit it as I find mistakes. As I said I just wanted to get my thoughts out while they are fresh. So yeah if you’ve come this far thanks for reading.
