After that latest one I am sure Smitty will be all right, at least physically. Maybe he's psychically wounded though.

Also I'm sure he and Parley are in deep shit with the Court.

That was a nice capper to something that happened more than fifty chapters ago.

Has it ever shown up when the art is normal?

Usually Aether things look all fancy-pants, or bland as heck (when Kats looking at them)

The plan to just stroll back into the Court like nothing happened was already screwed when Smitty got hurt, so losing the boat is probably an academic concern at this point.

There's that, at least.

They have a spectacular carrying weight. They'll get Smitty to a hospital toot suite.

Parley can't reliably bip without Smitty pulling the strings, and who even knows what effect being stabbed has had on his abilities.

There's a pretty good chance Kat is stronger than a psychopomp.

And she just got it back too. Man, what a tease.

Annie is kinda notably self-centered through the series. I don't actually know if she's willing to agree to become a psychopomp to spare Andrew's life.

I guess we'll find out

ON MONDAY.

Damn well better! He's going to die otherwise. And if Smitty dies, I will be very sad and probably cry and curse Annie's name for ever and ever.

Who wants to bet it's probably shortening her life for his? And then Parley steps in and is like "No, I'll do it!"
