Vax isn’t coming back.
So when he was killed the first time and resurrected he came back with a mark on him. Alarm number one.
Now I can’t remember if Matt said this in the same episode or not but he said something along the lines of there being a small heart beat under the mark. Alarm number two.
The second I heard the second heartbeat I knew that he’s been given a temporary reprieve from death. The Raven Queen was going to let him come back to complete his mission or try to complete his mission but she wasn’t going to let him stay.
Also Vax/Liam has just been acting weird imo. There’s just been something about him that kept this line of thinking in the back of my head since we came back. Not to mention the whole “Marisha we’ll have a discussion” thing Matt said was ominous as hell.
The only thing I can think about when it comes to resurrecting Vax, because Keyleth is going to have to be the one that does it, Pike can’t yet, is the Raven Queen looming over her and something along these lines being said:
You’ll love him. You will. And here’s the miracle he’ll love you too. You’ll be allowed to have him, you’ll love each other you will. And here’s the tragedy: it won’t be enough. You won’t be allowed to save him. You can love him but you won’t be able to keep him.
This is going to break her heart. Vex’s too.
