Ryan going to jail for like the third time and saying “I don’t know how to live on the outside, Geoff.” Made me imagine
The fake ah crew idk disbands or takes a break or something. Maybe they lay low live normal lives for a few years because michael and lindsay had their kid and they wanna keep them out of danger
But ryan keeps winding up in jail. Geoff keeps finding out even when no one tells him, bails him out, gets him home and asks what the fuck man but he just
He’s spent so much of his time on the criminal side he doesn’t know anything else now. He doesn’t know what to do as a regular guy. He’d rather be in jail even he knows jail better than he knows regular citizenship.
Geoff tries to help him out but like. How do you teach a 36 year old man to be a producive member of society? They have some success exploring interests but he always finds something to steal, finds someone to fight, finds something to destroy, and one night geoff leaves him on a blind date thinking maybe it’ll help to be around normal people, romantically or not, and next day he’s bailing both of them out of jail tryig to figure out where he went wrong

My first reaction to Into the Wand looked something like this
Which was followed by this
But when I woke up in the morning and starting browsing the Star vs. tags on tumblr, my reaction was this
Into the Wand did something the fans have been wanting for awhile now. It gave us some answers on Toffee’s backstory and his connections to the Butterfly family… BUTit also raised some new ones. This will be the main point of this post.
Now, when Star goes into the wand to “find the thing that doesn’t belong” we are treated to an onslaught of things Star remembers. Whether it be something she is used to seeing everyday (Marco’s hoodie and Echo Creek Academy), things from her childhood (Her dad’s chair and the Mewni Castle), to things she never personally saw but might have remembered subconsciously as a baby (The Grandma Room and Little Chauncey).
The Grandma Room is, to put it in simplest terms, the past queens of Mewni portrait hall. Only, instead of standard portraits of royals like we see in history books or on Wikipedia pages, we get Tapestries of important moments in there lives.
Tapestries of queens like Selena the Shy featuring men coming to either court her or learn her secrets as she holds her wand/fan. Solaria the Monster Carver’s tapestry is her kicking monster but and defending Mewni (how much of the threat the monster’s really were is up for debate). However, two tapestries really caught mine (and the fandom’s eye)
First off; Elicpsa Queen of Darkness. i mean, just look at her tapestry.
And then, her little blurb:
“Eclipsa Queen of Mewni to a Mewmen King was wed. But took a monster for her love and away from Mewni fled.”
Bad Girl indeed. Just look at her. Not only do we finally have the spades character, but we have the possibility for a backstory on another queen that isn’t Moon.
Speaking of, her tapestry and blurb… intrigue me.
“The Immortal Monster will long be haunted by the Darkest Spell of Moon the Undaunted.”
Ok, now I’m finally going to get to my theory. First of all: Toffee.
Not only is he down right terrified (as apposed to his usual stoic expression) he also sports some skulls on his shoulders as apart of some uniform. But look at what are on those skulls.
Diamond and Spade cheek marks. We know who the spades belong to, obviously. He might have put Elicpsa’s skull on his shoulder for some symbolic f pride reason but I’m curious about the diamond cheek skull. We already know that Moon has the Diamond’s on her cheek so… how?! (I’m sure Nefcy and crew will figure out someway to explain this but for now, I’m going to just ignore this)
Now, after seeing this tapestry, many people have written off Toffee and Moon’s history as enemies. But, I have to disagree. I mean, come on!
You don’t get have THIS MUCH EMOTION
from simply being just enemies.
I think there’s more to this story then we’ve yet to see. Maybe they were friends and Toffee just got fed up with Moon’s behavior. Maybe they were a parallel to Marco and Star. However, new theories have come to light and while i’m not behind them completely, I have to admit they have some key theories.
All these new theories have one thing in common, they both connect Toffee and Elicpsa.
Especially after the quasi-Jump Scare scene after Star grabs Toffee’s finger (which I will discuss a bit later). I couldn’t get a GIF so just settle for images.
Many people have started to theorize that Toffee is actually the son of Eclipsa and her monster lover. It’s not an entirely crazy theory. It allows for some of Toffee’s resentment to the Butterfly family be justified. They didn’t approve of his mom and dad’s relationship and practically forced her out and his half-sister blew his finger off. Justifiable and gives him motive. But I do not support this theory due to lack of sufficient evidence (and my own personal head-cannons) and the fact that I think it goes deeper than that. Maybe Toffee and Moon are related, maybe not. Who knows? Obviously, we won’t be getting any concrete evidence until we’re over the halfway mark of the season (and even then that might be stretching it)
Another thing I want to point out is Miss Heinous.
Her cheek marks (Clubs) are a muted grey-ish kind of color. While, for all the other cheek marks we’ve seen, they’re some sort of lively or bright color. Perhaps Miss Heinous is the daughter of Eclipsa and Monster-Lover and was ridiculed as a child and told she was never a “True, proper Princess” and that’s what inspired her to establish St. Olga’s Reform School for Wayward Princesses. It’s all speculation at this point but honestly, I support this theory more than I support the Toffee-Eclipsa’s child theory. Because to me, this has more legs to stand on.
For now, all we can do is wait for more episodes to come out so we can (hopefully) piece together the mystery of Toffee.
However, one of the episode Page Turner is set to air next week and it may cover some of Moon’s secrets, some of Toffee’s secrets, or maybe even some of Celina the Shy’s secrets. I’m hoping for the latter.
Well, that’s about all I have to say on the new episode. I have a few other theories so stay tuned for that. Also expect some other content coming out soon. Until then I’ll see you guys later.
(Also, thought Glossaryck in the tapestries, just hovering cross-legged through all the shit that goes down was hilarious)
Pre-Freewood Gavin mentions that he loves cats all the time because Ryan reminds him of a cat. Including bringing dead bodies as gifts to loved ones.
but Gavin is also similar to a cat in that way but instead of dead bodies (thankfully, Geoff has had enough of a heart attack at Ryan excitedly pointing out his kills to Gavin) Gavin likes to give Ryan trinkets he steals. It’s lots of flashy gold and diamonds and other various expensive shit that really Ryan doesn’t even need but Gavin gets such a wide grin when he presents it to Ryan, Ryan can’t say no
