[[WMG:Honor's charisma is partly due to her empath abilities...and she's not the only one.]]
* At several points in the series, people remark on Honor's uncanny leadership abilities, and Honor herself constantly works on projecting an aura of competence and calm in a crisis. What if she's ''actually'' (subconsciously) projecting something? Something that subtly influences people around her? And what would that mean for other characters said to have intense charisma...like, for example, Esther [=McQueen=]? Her effect on those around her is almost supernatural, isn't it?

* Jossed by Shadow of Victory. [[spoiler: Albrecht nukes himself, his wife, and every other Mesan Alignment operative still on Mesa when Mike Henke captures Mesa.]]




to:

* As of the end of Shadow of Victory [[spoiler: Albrecht nuked every Mesan Alignment operative still on Mesa, including himself and his wife, when Mike entered orbit. They're really everything they can not to leave any strings to follow.]]




to:

* As of the end of Shadow of Victory, [[spoiler: Albrecht nuked all of the Mesan Alignment operatives that were still on Mesa when Mike entered orbit, including himself and his wife. Their pet newsy, Audrey O'Hanrahan, is busy going "Hmm, I wonder who set let off all those nukes".]]


Added DiffLines:

* Shadow of Victory tells us [[spoiler: Firebrand has been equipped with some of the MA's nanotech tricks, including their killswitch. He's also been captured by Manticore, but unless they clue in to the killswitch rapidly and figure out some way to deactivate it, he's gonna die shortly.]]

[[WMG:All those dead Beowulfan civilians mentioned above? Audrey O'Hanrahan will be a witness to whatever kills them.]]
Tell me an investigative reporter of her stature ''won't'' be covering the Beowulf plebiscite. According to ''A Rising Thunder'', the Mandarins are planning to send a fleet to Beowulf before the vote. Reading between the lines of their doublespeak, the fleet will be under orders to make sure the vote either doesn't take place or is held after the planet goes under Solarian martial law (in which case it's a fake vote begging the League to let them stay). This is clearly the trigger for the battle that results, either via Eridani violation or some other means, in the 10 million dead civvies.

Given O'Hanrahan's reputation, if she says the Solarian commander screwed up people will believe her. My only question is whether her superiors will let her cover the story accurately or if they'll demand she slant her coverage.

* As mentioned above in the section on Beowulf, [[WordOfGod has it - albeit with no details so far - that something devastating is going to happen in the Battle of Beowulf that will result in no fewer than 10 million civilian deaths. It's anyone guess whether that'll be an Edict violation or something else.]]

* Pretty thoroughly {{Jossed}} by the events of the last few books. [[spoiler:As of the end of ''A Rising Thunder'', Rajampet, having reached the end of his usefulness to the Alignment, has shot himself with the assistance of nanotech, the so-called flower of the SLN has been conclusively defeated at Manticore, there's no realistic expectation that the upcoming battle of Beowulf is going to turn out any differently, and the League's leadership - with help from Alignment deep-cover agents - is turning to the more "realistic" strategy of commerce and infrastructure raiding, which might actually work if Manticore and Haven hadn't been practicing that exact same form of warfare against each other for the past two decades and knew all the tricks and what to look for. Moreover, Beowulf is on the point of seceding from the League, several systems sympathetic to it are ready to follow, and the Renaissance Factor is gearing up in the wings. Long story short, the Solarian League is very shortly going to be in no condition to occupy Manticore or anywhere else. Particularly not when the Alignment's real target all along has been the League; weakening Manticore was only a means to an end.]]

* However it works out, it's a lead-pipe cinch that we haven't seen the last of Montana's answer to John Wayne. Westman has a ''big'' bone to pick with the Mesan Alignment over the way he was conned into being their catspaw, so you can count on him doing something to get his own (and his world's) back.

* As of the end of Cauldron of Ghosts, [[spoiler: Mike's arrival has forced the surrender of Mesa, saving Victor, Thandi, and Co. in the process. Houdini has already gotten all of the Alignment's personnel out. Anton has figured out the existence of Houdini and arrived back in Manticore with that knowledge, but has no idea where Houdini took them. Though that will change if and when somebody puts two and two together and gets a hunch as to what actually happened to the Harvest Joy.]]
