** Uriel's reaction also sheds light on [[spoiler: the transformation of Lasciel's Shadow in White Night. Harry nicknames her "Lash" just as she begins to question whether she can have her own, independent existence. By giving the shadow a Name ''without'' the angelic suffix, Harry may have actually made it possible for Lash to exercise free will.]]

** Thomas is the easiest as Legolas. Other than being the most pretty male, Thomas comes from a race of inhumanly beautiful creatures, stronger, faster, and longer-lived than humans.

* Either foreshadowing or The Gatekeeper's prescience or Harry's magic being more effective than he knows: Harry wants to find the black magic going on in Chicago, that the Gatekeeper has cryptically warned him personally about. He decides to do a difficult locating spell for fear, and spends half an hour preparing the ritual. At the last second before he begins, he's interrupted by a phone call... from the actual black magic practitioner! In a state of fear and desperation! Half an hour of prep gone to waste, he thinks. In hindsight, maybe not.

* Shiro hands his sword to Harry, saying he will know who to pass it on to. The next Knight of the Cross [[spoiler: will be Butters, who Harry met for the first time just a few minutes before he first met Shiro. Butters has just told him that his job gets way more interesting when Harry has been called in.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Also in ''Day Off'', [[BigBadWannabe Darth Wannabe]]'s van has inverted crosses painted on it. The inverted cross, also known as the Cross of St. Peter, really has the meaning of humility and unworthiness before Christ. This is a double-whammy: Any ''actual'' evil beings would likely know of the cross's true meaning, which pegs Darth Wannabe as, well, a wannabe, and if you take Harry as Jesus, then it shows just how utterly outclassed they are before him.

** Except Margaret had already "escaped" Lea's attentions by that point, because Lea can't claim someone who's dead.

Added DiffLines:

** Although the terms of Molly's parole imply that the Doom only applies to a warlock's ''teacher'' until the apprentice's training is complete. Harry wasn't an apprentice anymore when Morgan harassed him in ''Storm Front'', and it's unlikely Morgan would've been able to give Harry much of a hard time while he was still in Ebenezer's custody back in Missouri.

** I've forgotten who said this, but in Ghost Story, while Harry was talking about the Grey Ghost's/[[spoiler: Corpsetaker's]] plans to [[spoiler: possess Mortimer]], whoever it was that was talking to Harry said that [[spoiler: the Corpsetaker only needed someone with latent magical ability to express her( they spend almost all their appearances female, and part of the one male one trying to GrandTheftMe a female. I'm sticking with the female pronoun) full power. Luccio cannot express her full power in her current body. So... what, is it a special technique? Possibly involving necro, etco, or Neuromancy? Is the Captain of the Wardens just a lesson in grey magic or two away from her full strength? Or is it an experience thing, the kind that can only be gotten through frequent jumps into new bodies? Becoming more "fluid", less sensitive to the body's magical potential?]]

** The reason the Corpsetaker needs someone with magical affinity and even permission during Ghost Story is because she's still very weak. After she eats the Lector Specters, she's able to swap with Butters at will, and he has no magical ability. Harry explains this as it happens.

* Mab's desire to get Harry as her Winter Knight suddenly looks very reasonable when you consider the revelations in Cold Days that it is [[spoiler: the duty of Winter to protect reality from the siege of the Outsiders]], and that Harry [[spoiler: has been hinted at having power against Outsiders due to circumstances of his birth]].

And even without the second spoiler, Harry is one of the strongest wizards alive. Top 50. Slate was a normal guy without the Mantle, and we're all seen what he could do. [[spoiler: Harry hasn't even begun to become the terror he'll be now that he's Winter Knight.]]



* When Thomas wishes Harry a happy birthday in ''Dead Beat'', he also remarks that he was a bit surprised he'd remembered to do so. At first, it seems like they've just been too busy to think about things like that. But when you stop to consider how Margaret Dresden died, you realized that Thomas could '''never''' forget Halloween's significance to their family, because for him, it's [[spoiler: ''the day his father murdered his mother'']]. So what surprised him was probably ''not'' that he'd remembered the date of Harry's birthday, but rather, that he'd remembered Harry considers it a day of birthday celebration, and [[spoiler: not grief for their Mom]].
