** ...what are you talking about? [[MsFanservice Zeetha's]] nudity (well, not quite, but whatever) was played for laughs ''twice''. Gil got one in a perfectly logical situation (Mama Gkika's), and then he and Tarvek got a slightly less justified one in the castle. These all lasted about two panels each. Is ''that'' what you mean? Note that my first anime/manga were ''MahouSenseiNegima'' and ''Anime/{{Witchblade}}'', so I'm desensitized. I literally don't know what you mean.

[[folder:Agatha and Confession]]
* So this is kinda bugging me. Why did Agatha the Corbettite monk, Brother Ulm, about her past? I would understand why she wouldn't lie in during confession if she was religious, but we have no indication before that moment that that is the case. Last time she was in a religious sanctuary, the Mechanicsburg Cathedral, she seemed rather annoyed by all the ceremonial stuff, so why does she suddenly care when she gets on the train? Maybe she was just tired at the Cathedral and annoyed and she just wanted to vent her frustrations on the train, but there has to be more to it than that right? She had no real reason at the time to tell them about being the Heterodyne because she just needed to be brought to Paris, so why invite risk by telling a Brother who she was even if he was obligated to not share that information? Surely Wooster would know that people could be rejected by the monks and told Agatha about that.

*** The corollary to this theory is that the possiblity of her resurrection was set up as foreshadowing to Tarvek's resurrection with the Cardinal rule being hinted at. She could have just rejected the resurrection offscreen or she could be reintroduced somewhere else for some added drama.

** It seems that since Agatha isn't actually Lucrezia, that she can't control revenants who are actively obeying orders that were given previously. She had a wasp eater and Lucrezia is the one who ordered them killed. Agatha has less control other revenants than Lucrezia so they would disobey Lucrezia's orders at Agatha's say so. Perhaps they also knew that Agatha isn't The Other AND that she has The Other trapped in her head. If they did know either or both of those things, that may have made them more mentally prepared to resist a command. It may also be possible that Agatha COULD have controlled them if she was in the madness place, but she wasn't and it seems most sparks, even the strongest ones, only fall into the madness place subconsciously with maybe some limited control.

[[folder:Rank and von Zinzer]]
* [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20120727#.VxwTQ3TD-Ba Why does von Zinzer reject the reasoning that as head minion, he controls the lesser minions while the head sparks control the lesser sparks (or sparks who are subservient because are in the other spark's territory) AND the minions including the head minion?]] Von Zinzer was in the military! Boil the reasoning down enough and minions equate to enlisted men and sparks equate to officers in the military. The only difference is that the rankings are less official.

[[folder:Did Agatha lose the ability to control revenants?]]
* When she encountered the underground revenant population in Paris, controlling them or at least distracting them with her voice didn't even seem to occur to her. Maybe she's just subconsciously repressing it out of distaste for MindControl, but even then, shouldn't they have automatically obeyed her shout of "Jump!"? Does this have to do with that imprinting thing Princess Anevka mentioned?

* It would probably kill you. What's never explained is why one ancestor of Agatha became stronger when he drank the Dyne water and the other one exploded. It probably depends on the person.

** Everyone who sees Gil on a regular aren't sure if he's even sane any more. Bang makes several references to Gil being out of his mind. She calls him a "stark raving" madman to his face. She knows something is wrong with him, but she specifically says that she attributed his craziness with more mundane problems. She just got a hint that he isn't merely himself any more, but Bang isn't that smart and wants to know exactly what is happening from Gil's own mouth. She even smacks him when she suspects that he's about to lie to her. Plus, it seems that Klaus only takes over when Gil is doing something reckless and dangerous when making decisions about Agatha and/or the Other. Gil is in charge most of the time, so she may not have seen Gil act like his dad that often. Besides, what kind of person would jump to the conclusion that Klaus imprinted a copy of his own mind onto his son's personality. That's just crazy talk.

[[folder:Agatha surviving the crab-clank]]
* I might have missed something obvious here, but how does Agatha survive the crab clank that was attacking the circus? Not how the body was faked for Gil, I mean, but surviving the fight in the first place. In [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20041129#.VsT8ZiCLSHv this]] and [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20041203#.VsT9KiCLSHv this]] page, it definitely looks like it was Agatha who got hit by the heat ray. And if not her, who was it? Olga seems the obvious choice but in [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20041126#.VsT-DyCLSHs this]] page it looks like she's already dead.
