** To count it off, the warrior queen who wishes for nothing but to be free of the system of nobles and commoners has found herself a noble, unable to take the field of battle, and has lost her chosen heir to demons, and left barren and thus unable to make a new one. Her remaining heirs are a daughter who hates her guts, another who lacked the killer instinct Quain desires in an heir [[spoiler:who betrays her to the Sharen,]] an overly ambitious advisor's daughter, and Ariel [[spoiler:her granddaughter.]] In DrowTales motherhood is very important and Quain'tana's barrenness makes her even more of an outsider to other nobles.

* Sillice's decision to ask [[spoiler: Liriel / Diva]] to become the "ice twins" playmate, and [[spoiler: Diva]]'s decision to accept. From Sillice's point of view, what better playmate than a palace insider still loyal to her mother, and from [[spoiler: Diva]]'s, she's building a network of [[spoiler: children with a high probability of becoming important politically]] one day.
** Sillice sees a chance to reinforce "clean" Val'Sharen values via a palace insider. [[spoiler: Diva]] gets to do that, sure; but, she also gets to attempt some atonement for past mistakes by getting to raise, as far as she's aware, her clan's only remaining untainted kids. Also, matriarchs, recognised or not, love them some grandkids. She's right to invest in them, too, given what the tainting has done to the Vel side of the family.

* Ariel's reaction to [[spoiler:finding out Mel is her mother]] [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=7849 at first looks]] like just another case of naivety or refusing to believe it, but considering that she's a shapeshifter it's not that far fetched, especially since she's never actually seen [[spoiler:Mel and Quain]] standing next to each other.

* [[spoiler:Snadhya having Kalki torn apart by summons does come off as a showing of how much of a monster she really is.]] But think about Snadhya's ideology. Snadhya has been consistent in opposing the clan system and wishing to burn it to ashes for a new order to rise. [[spoiler: Word of God confirmed that Kalki was never Snadhya's heir to any of her holdings besides possibly Orthorbbae, nor was she the heir to the Nidraa'chal. Kalki had repeatedly shown herself to embody the negative habits of Vals, especially when one considers her insolence. She acted as a girl who knew she would get special treatment no matter how horrific or foolish she behaved. By having her only daughter torn apart, Snadhya in her bloody way demonstrated that she's committed to shifting society away from the hereditary-based clans.]]

** Post chapter 46 it also takes on a somewhat sadder implication, since if that was actually [[spoiler:Mel's]] dress Kalki might've worn it to feel some connection to her. Also notice her hair is down, not unlike how [[spoiler:Snadhya'rune]] usually styles it. She probably ''was'' actually playing dressup and the fact it doesn't fit even sadder in light of what happened later.

* One of the admins [[http://forums.drowtales.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=18459&start=15#p819174 clarified]] that "merged" tainted like Kiel, Snadhya'rune and Kalki have a normal pain response as opposed to the FeelNoPain effect someone who's heavily tainted and slowly dying like Naal'suul or Rann'dirk experiences. At first this might seem like odd since not feeling pain might be an advantage in a fight, but if you look at real people who have conditions like CIPA you realize that it's actually a huge ''dis''advantage when it comes to long term survival, since real life people with the condition tend to overtax their bodies since they don't have the the pain to warn them to stop whatever's damaging them and tend to die from complications from this sooner rather than later. Since Snadhya'rune wants those she "chooses" to live as long as possible and make up her new empire she wouldn't intentionally introduce anything that might lessen their life expectancy.
