* Kringle and Eldest Gruff ignoring Sarissa's kidnapping by the Red Cap raises unpleasant connotations, especially with Eldest Gruff, who seems to be a pretty nice guy otherwise. [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation But it may be that they know exactly what they're doing, after all]]. Harry has just become the Winter Knight, and for the Winter Fae to respect him at all, he needs to assert his authority violently. By standing around and making Harry fight the Red Cap, they simultaneously keep their own hands clean and encourage Harry to assert his own authority and gain Winter's respect.

Added DiffLines:

** The exact relationship of Nemesis and the Outsiders is still unclear, so time with tell, but it's possible that it wasn't really powerful, it was just the Outsider's influence in making it that made it able to spot them.
** Also, that means that the junkie knew about one of them well before Harry did, and the other well after, once again reminding that those aren't just pretty titles but fitting descriptions of them.

Added DiffLines:

** Consider also that [[spoiler: Titania, already angry over losing her daughter and having Lily thrust upon her in her place, could very easily have wound up with Harry Dresden's apprentice as hew new surrogate daugther and chew-toy.]] Molly might have gotten off lucky.

* 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.
