the joke here is that i’m always thinking after every episode, including this one. this particular post brought to you in part by the fact that EVERYONE IS SLOWLY BUT SURELY BECOMING FRIENDS!! so it’s time for me to try and organize my thoughts, once again:
in particular, we’re talking about jester, because i know where my biases lie. today, it’s jester’s relationship with beau, caduceus, and caleb ( i’m going in alphabetical order, and i have plans to hit up jester with everyone else. i have a Lot Of Thoughts ). this is but a fraction of what is rattling around in my head, i need to write like 1000 words per person to articulate everything. but it’s a start.
under a cut bc of length. as always, i welcome any and all discussion!
Caleb has a pretty sketchy goal when you think about it, to quote “Anybody can make lights. Anybody could send a message through a wire. I want to bend reality to my will.” Now, we can all guess this means Caleb is going to take wish as his 9th level and magick his parents back, but what if it’s not enough, what if it doesn’t work the way he intended? Might he try something else? like become a lich. I hope it doesn’t happen, but think about Vecna or hell even The Raven Queen. Two people who started as magic casters and became more in the search of power. I’m just saying, that with Caleb’s mindset and his potential strength, he could go full lich king. hopefully he just sacrifices his wish after the final battle to help one of the M9, showing real character growth.
