Earlier Leopold promises to help Siegfried escape from his Doom, even if he has to get some wench drunk and put her in a circle of fire.
Beauty and the Werewolf
After Eric has been killed and Bella has accepted Duke Sebastian's proposal, she gets a visit from her father and stepmother. Her stepmother takes Bella aside and asks her if either Sebastian or Eric had been unchivalrous toward her. She even threatens to do something horrible to them if they have, Eric being dead is no obstacle for her. Pretty sweet in a world where stepmothers are evil by default thanks to the Tradition.
There's a small Foreshadowing of this when Bella realizes that the Tradition had been meddling with her relationship with her stepmother BUT because Bella was such a control freak in maintaining her father's household (helped that Bella was 13 when her father remarried), the stepmother and Bella were able to have a polite though distant and slightly chilly relationship at the very least and Bella could have a genuinely loving, caring relationship with her stepsisters. Bella then feels genuinely remorseful for having discounted her stepmother for all those years.
Bella and Sebastian finding out that his old servants were staunchly loyal to him and never left.
