I have a hard time believing the Court is so far ahead of they game that they predicted Surma mishearing "entomology" as "etymology."

Remember also that the whole reason Donny couldn't go was that (Kat's Mom)'s father died.

If the Court set this up, it is Extremely Sinister.

Also, considering that Surma was dating Eglamore at the time, do we think there was a specific reason they wouldn't want their fire elemental to have a kid with their gym teacher/superpowered guardian? Or is the idea just that they particularly wanted Carver and Surma to have a kid?

I'm not entirely sold on the notion that it is set up, but it's also definitely possible. Hm

Mixing fire-elemental with super-strength probably means that neither "line" carries through assuming typical superhuman metaphysics are in play, or is just a crapshoot.

If you're going the sinister route, I doubt the Court would want their pet fire- and super strength lineages to be lost in favor of whatever the kids might get instead.

If the Court wanted to get two teens to fall in love, they wouldn't need to resort to assassination. At least, they'd want to get more bang for their muder buck than that.

The Court prefers to use blackmail. They don't care if the person they're manipulating knows they're being manipulated.

This is still a story that Kats Mom is telling, right?

Because, for one thing, she knows an awful lot of minutia about this story and, for another, I can't imagine Annie enjoys hearing about her parents making out passionately any more than anyone else would.

Surma and Anja were very close.

Edit: I also bet Tony told Donny a lot of this.
