“Into The Wand” has been a beautiful lore-centered episode. It’s amazing how much world-building it delivered by simply using a couple of (gorgeous!) tapestries: the atmosphere was truly incredible in those scenes.
Most importantly, however, it marked the long-awaited return, more as an ominous presence though, of lizard lawyer Toffee, dropping some huge hints on his mysterious past, motives and the so-called “history” with Star’s family.
While the episode did give some kind of answers, it definitely rose many other questions. This post is in fact mostly a big theory-dump and I may be stating thoughts and theories already shared by the rest of the fandom, but feel free to join me into this new kind of lore-trash!
waifu tapestry room in the royal palace gave us viewers a quick history lesson on Star’s ancestors. There is a lot of stuff to talk about here, lots of theories and (possibly) symbolism, but we’ll try to focus on Toffee instead, which is possibly the key to all of this mess.
So of course we start with Celena The Shy. While (probably) not directly related to the reptile lawyer, Celena is the only ancestor in the room that Star addresses using an appellative, “great-great-grandma”, thus helping us viewers drawing a timeline of the Butterfly dynasty. From this point on, since Star started with Celena’s epigraph, we can assume that the tapestries are in chronological order, considering that the last one we learn about is Moon’s.
