i wonder how pb is gonna react to having basically magic powers now? she’s always been so against calling stuff ‘magic’ because it’s an irresponsible attitude to have, you should recognise it as science and quantify it and understand it cause otherwise you’re being reckless. a lot of pb’s arc is motivated by understanding and controlling and labeling something as ‘magic’ means relinquishing your control.

now serious scientist pb can shoot candy out of her hand while making fart noises. i’d say she’s going to be tinkering and analysing and experimenting until she has the whole thing figured out and can not only control it but also explain it. she won’t rest with the explanation that ‘there have just always been elementals, this is just A Thing to accept’. and honestly i dunno what she’s gonna find, if there IS a root cause for elementals or what. and if she goes tinkering too much she might lose the power or break it in some way, which could upset whatever balance we currently have. it’s exciting!!

by the end of wizards only fools, pb is genuinely amazed by the cold spell and it looks like she doesn’t know how to explain it with science. the show itself seems to take the angle that sometimes there ARE just fantastic magical things you can’t explain away with science. if the show is taking that stance and pb is gonna go experimenting with the elemental powers trying to understand it (since there’s no way she’d let something this powerful and important and unknowable INSIDE HERSELF go unexamined), i think she’ll end up messing with forces she shouldn’t and it’ll end badly. IT’S EXCITING this is all exciting i luv it
