* With the revelation that Demonreach is spoiler:meant to act as a prison, it granting Harry Intellectus within its confines suddenly becomes clearer and not just a convenient power boost. Harry is THE Warden. And what's a good way to prevent prisonbreaks and escapes? A handydandy ''SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM''. After all, the reason prisons used to have guards/wardens was to watch the prisoners and the environs to make sure no one was trying to tunnel in or out. Since Demonreach is a prison run by one man (Alfred doesn't count, he's technically the interface to the prison's OS), the man must be able to keep watch over everything those now-removed guards would have been watching for. That's what the Island's Intellectus enables. It's a panopticon.

* Everybody who assumes a mantle of power ''will'', eventually, become indistinguishable in personality to its previous bearers as it forces certain urges and compulsions upon them. After a few decades, Lily might as well be Aurora in a different body. Remember what Maeve was like? That's what Molly's going to become.

Now consider what that means for Molly.

* Sarissa comes from an old Hebrew word, which is the same word that Sarah derives from (and in fact, Harry accidentally calls Sarissa Sarah when he's trying to remember her name.) The brilliance? The same word is also the Hebrew word for [[spoiler:"princess." As in, "Daughter of a queen."]]
** It's also a weapon (a type of spear).

* [[spoiler: NiceGirl Lily]] attempting to kill Harry is already NightmareFuel but also raises some horrific implications. [[spoiler: First, she blames Harry for her current situation, saying that by killing Aurora making her Summer Lady, he stole her chance for a normal life, which makes one wonder if she only came to this conclusion recently when Meave was manipulating her or was this resentment something she ''always'' had towards Harry, starting from the end of Summer Knight. Then there's Lily summoning a mountain to charboil Harry ''while he's holding Fix's body'' meaning Lily was so fixated on revenge that she didnt care about ''burning her best friend alive or desecrating his body.'' Finally, there's Fix and Lily's reactions afterwards once she cools down when its revealed he's alive and ok. Fix tells her to clam down and do her usual meditions, and doesnt seem scared, shocked or horrified at his friend's behavior and near murder of him, implying that this isnt the ''first'' time Lily's gone on a rampage like this and given Titania's earlier rage against Harry such tantrums may be ''normal.'' Meanwhile, Lily finds out she almost killed her friend but rather than sit down and digest it or show remorse, she '' immediately goes back to breaking the island's seal'' showing where her priorities lie.]]

* Molly submits to the Winter Knight's urges, which is made even more disturbing by her past captivity in Arctis Tor. She ''knows'' how brutal Winter can be, and serves it anyway.
