** It gets even better when you consider that 1) the cathedral is a blind spot for the castle, obsessively because the Hetrodynes never trusted the castle completely and 2) the Abbess is a plant for Martellus. For all we know they might all have been since the cathedral was built!




to:

* Of course the castle was built to be able to operated during a time-freeze. The Hertrodynes were one of the few groups of people with data on the phenomenon and it terrified them enough that they entered into a treaty with the church about it, AND KEPT THEIR WORD. Making their city immune (or at least resistant) to its effects was probably job two, right after having the pie.

* [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20031210#.V8EiqpgrLIV Doctor Dimitri's bear collection.]] While the Foreshadowing of the [[spoiler: bear army]] is made clear later, another case can be seen in the background of the last panel. In the center of the pile of bears is a rag cat resembling [[spoiler: Krosp, Cat King and, as later revealed, leader of the bears]]

** Or even better, that's not a rag cat. That's [[spoiler:Krosp himself, watching Agatha show his master kindness. Which helps explain why he reveals himself to her not too long afterward.]]

** Another chilling thought: Barry is implied to have stormed the Geisterdamen stronghold and rescued Agatha by himself... so where the hell was Bill? And surely he'd have known (or at least suspected) if Lucrezia was pregnant when the Other came along, so... did the Other trick Bill into conceiving Agatha and get rid of him afterward?

** One which ''[[AvertedTrope averts]]'' CouldHaveBeenMessy. When the action heats up, the comic grinds through RedShirts and [[MauveShirt Mauve Shirts]] with alarming speed. Even the heroes of this world rack up an impressive body count. Reread [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20061220#.WPnLOfkrJdh Agatha's little stunt with the circus]]. Just how many [[PunchClockVillain Wulfenbach troops]] did she kill right there?

* Early on, when Moloch and Agatha have been mistaken for lovers, he says "You're not my type, but I guess I'll just have to wing it." Years later, we meet his actual love interests Sanaa, Snaug, and Violetta, all of whom have both a distinctly different body type than Agatha.

* Gil is confused about Lucrezia probably being the Queen of the Dawn, since his father always called her a brilliant spark and yet the Queen is only using technology Lucrezia would have used years ago. But upon the reveal that it's Zola it all makes sense: Zola is not a spark and has access to all Lucrezia's memories. She knows how to make all of Lucrezia's old inventions and tools, but no ability to improve upon them herself and is thus limited to what seem like old tech to the Empire.

* When Vole tells the Baron that Gil is at Mamma Gkika's, Klaus sighs and says "I have ''got'' to get that boy married," implying he doesn't know anything about her bar except it being a tourist trap with sexy waitresses. Much later, however, Klaus clearly knows Gkika personally, so it seems extremely odd that he wouldn't know about her impromptu underground hospital. But the thing is, Klaus didn't know Gil was injured. He just assumed that Gil had decided to go to Mamma's for some random reason, in which case the Jaegerfrau were the most likely attraction.

* Jaegers' children are completely human, with Oggie interacting with his own great great grandson in-comic. Jaegers don't die of old age like humans do, and thus outlive all of their children.

* Klaus' story about [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20110506 The Witch and The Wolf King]] seemed like a strange diversion from the plot, but it's actually incredibly important. The characters in the story are fictional counterparts to real people; Lucrezia is the witch, Klaus is the king who was turned into her obedient wolf, and Gil is the king's son who outsmarted the witch. This on its own is FridgeBrilliance -- However! It gets better! After the story's done, Klaus tells the storyteller that not only is this story from a storybook thought LostForever, but that Gil might still have it! So now the storyteller has a motive to find Gil, and relay the story he just heard in order to find this book. Except when Gil hears the story, he'll realize it's actually a message from his father. Given the story's ending, that message is probably "Kill Me". Even better, he's telling it as the OriginStory of the Storm King -- and though the jury's still out as to whether or not [[http://girlgenius.wikia.com/wiki/The_Storm_King_%28title%29 that title]] is inherited or awarded, this is ''Klaus Wulfenbach'' we're talking about. He ''knows'' Gil can spin his lightning stunt into the title. And there is one character in the story who is ''not'' played by a major character: The "giantess nurse" who would not let the "king's son" leave the mountain until he proved his intelligence by pulling out the ''copper pin'' in her hair. The story's message is not "Kill Me", it's "Go get Von ''Pinn'', present her to this bitch, let her kill ''both of us'', then use that stupid myth that's causing all this trouble to get the nobles to shut up and accept you." Possibly the ''last'' communication he will ever have with his son, and [[Film/IronMan he's still taking him to school]].
