Perhaps, but that seems like a bit of a leap to make. Especially given Cool-Beans' present rant.

I never noticed how working class Surma's accent was before.

I'm not sure if she's ever spoken to any significant degree before.

I realize it's not a huge departure from his usual style but the facial expressions on this page in particular felt like they were referencing that style.

Stories like this are why Kat learned to ask for forgiveness and not for permission.

I don't think I understand on even the most basic level what's happening on this page.

And lo, Annie learned why her parents fell in love.

Because they almost stepped on some bugs that one time.

The event they're waiting for is for them to start making out, isn't it?

Yeah this reads like the Court is fixing them up, and it gives a sinister undertone to the whole story.

Oh! Well, that explains it then. I don't know why I didn't realize that fact sooner.

Annie is the Omega Device

Nah; I think the Court just really wanted a detailed report on slugs doin’ it.

You know, as a prank on the Headmaster, make him go all all “Ewwwww” while chuckling.

Bunch of jokesters, those guys

Remember, the plan was originally that Tony and Donny would go.

But if Tony and Surma were told directly that they had to go together, they would probably wonder why the Court Medium was needed for a non-magical-jungle field study, and their suspicions would be raised. This way, nobody is really thinking about the implications of the trip since of course it's an unusual situation, everything just happens "all of a sudden," and the Court gets what it wants without anybody being the wiser.

The question is, how much did the Court foresee, and how much did it "help" to happen in a manner similar to how it "helped" Jeanne?

Yeah, you're almost certainly more correct in that I don't think that Annie is all of the Omega Device, but clearly a key component in it.

The Court is indifferent to Annie. Tony is the one they care about, and we've seen quite clearly how they control him. Clandestine manipulation isn't their style.
