I remember after the whole potion mess thing happened, Ash was telling Erika that the guard hid some things from him too? That was something that never left my mind because I REALLY want to know why he hates the guard so much. Now that we are getting hints that he may be Lance, it makes more sense why Lance would want to fake his death and vanish (so no one would look for him).
During episode 17 we learned that Daemons (or at least Leif) are still alive. Even the guard believed them to be extinct and only exist in spirit form or something. If they were wrong about the Daemons, can’t they be wrong about the Dragons too? Maybe a few Dragons or their descendants are still alive!
And since Ash named himself after a really important Dragon, I’m gonna assume that he pays respects to them for some reason. (I can’t see him as the type to name himself after someone he looks down on.)
Add to the fact that we don’t know Valkyon’s race, and that Lance would have to be the same race as him, do you think Valkyon and Lance are descendants of Dragons? Valk said that he is a fairy-human hybrid. I’m guessing Lance is a hybrid too since Valk still has no idea what his race could be (and if Lance is a full fairy, it wouldn’t make sense for Valk to not know what he is).
My guess is that they are both Dragon-human hybrids and that there is some dark secret going around about the “extinct” Dragons. Maybe they are being killed too for some reason? Even after all they had sacrificed to create Eldarya?
Someone on twitter tonight very kindly informed me that, waaaaay back once upon a time in 2011, @linmanuel posted his dream cast for a West Wing musical on his now-defunct blog. And since the internet never forgets, I share it with you all now.
I support everything about this casting (Patti LuPone as Marion Coatsworth-Hayes! Audra McDonald as Nancy McNally!) and wish to see it become reality as soon as humanly possible.
