** So it's magical super-typhus? From that description I'd have gone with radioactivity from a meteor over disease if we hadn't seem it on Mother Summer's shelf. Wait...meteor plus disease? It's TheAndromedaStrain! The real question is why Mother Summer would release it during the end of the world. A bioweapon against the Outsiders and their Fomor allies?

[[WMG: Molly will become the new Mab.]]

We know from ''Cold Days'' that when one of the elder Faerie Queen dies, the younger one takes her place. One of the potential outcomes of Maeve's plotting was that Mab would die and Maeve would take her place as the "mother" and primary queen of The Winter Court. It seems highly unlikely we'd have that possibility brought up unless there was a chance that somewhere down the line we might see it happen.
* There may have been some foreshadowing of this in ''Proven Guilty'', when Harry soul-gazes Molly and sees all the potential future versions of her. One of them is described as wearing all black clothing, with black hair and black eyes. Harry specifically describes her as looking "like Molly, like a human being" but being neither. Think about Harry's description of how Mab looked and dressed in her most vengeful aspect and quail in fear.

* Nicodemus may be the one to kick off the apocalypse for story reasons. If a mortal were to set it into motion, that means that the Lord Almighty and His servants, implied to be the most powerful supernatural faction, wouldn't be able to interfere with it. And Nicodemus is most likely aware of this.

[[WMG: The Blackstaff (as in the stick) is currently bound by a geas.]]
The Blackstaff is a living supernatural entity of considerable power and malevolence. At some point in the past, a member of the White Council tricked it into accepting a geas that prevents it from using magic not approved by a particular wizard. The reason the Blackstaff (the wizard) can use black magic without being corrupted is that they technically aren't the one using the magic; they just give the staff permission to use the spell they want to cast. While the staff hates being kept on a leash, it's too malicious to pass up an opportunity to harm others, so it can be used reliably.

The terms of the geas allow for the position of the staff's keeper to be transferred between people. The White Council has a contingency plan in place to ensure that, should anything happen to the current keeper, the staff will pass to another wizard immediately so the staff is never unsupervised. However, the council would only ever trust a select few wizards with that sort of power, so the number of possible "candidates" would be very small at any give time. For the modern council, dealing with serious issues of infiltration, they may have only one or two people they could trust the staff with. Meaning that, should anything happen to Ebenezer and his planned replacement, the council would be forced to pass the staff to someone they wouldn't normally trust with it, e.g. Harry, simply because letting the staff do as it pleases would be even worse.

*** Given what JimButcher said in regards to the timeline of the books and time travel at the signing for "Changes" in Portland, Oregon, on 8 April, I'd say that's not only possible but also a pretty darn cool idea. "Am I gonna make any big leaps forward or backward, well... You know, there is a whole law of magic about messing with time, and given that it's a law of magic, Dresden's gonna have to break it eventually." [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOwdg31_bBU Video clips of Jim Butcher's Portland, OR, signing for "Changes". Beware spoilers!]]

* Alternatively, when the masquerade breaks down the Vampire Courts will sue for full rights in a landmark case called Clark V Addsion and the story will ultimately end up as a prequel to AnitaBlake.

[[WMG: Butters will change the nature of mortal magic]]
Butters is a geek. He knows computers. He knows biology. He knows magic (thanks to Bob). He's already begun creating magical accessories, discovered the wizardly healing factor, and has established very convincing theories regarding the Winter Knight's mantle. He is in the unique position to be the first straight to actually analyze magic to the point where he can eventually:
--> Isolate the "magical force" and integrate it into a scientific physics model.
--> Find a solution that will counter the [[WalkingTechbane Murphyonic Field]] emitted by practitioners.
--> Discover the genetic sequence that allows a mortal to have access to magic, as well as the rules of inheritance.
--> Integrate magic into complex technology.
--> Create treatments that can:
---> Give straights access to wizard's senses.
---> Take magical ability away from practitioners.
---> Counter black magic taint, providing a possible rehabilitation path for unintentional warlocks.

** Except that Butters found a loophole around that ruisk. [[spoiler: Near the end of ''Skin Game'', Butters tells Bob to return to the skull, and tell Andi he loves her. Bob flies away, likely back to Butter's apartment. He did not have the skull with him, yet he still had Bob's loyalty!]]

Q: Can the skinwalker access the NeverNever and use the Ways? If so, why didnít it?

* In ''Ghost Story'', Butters let Bob out to beat the crap out of a trio of wraiths, which he did with ease and o small amount of satisfaction. He also got to come out into the NeverNever and help fight Evil!Bob - who is still out there somewhere. That fight will probably get an encore.

** Thomas was desperate ''not'' to destroy Justine, and restrained his demon's Hunger as much as possible. Lara ''wanted'' her father to become a mindless husk, and eagerly gobbled him up. That's bound to make a difference.
