This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
Guilded Age
Beware spoilers.

The Bubble turns out to be a Lotus-Eater Machine. Leading to the events of the webcomic.
  • Whether the results were intentional remain to be seen.

Bandit is Daedalus' Digital Avatar.
  • In the scenes featuring him, his purple tie is the only Splash of Color in a Deliberately Monochrome scene. Purple seems to be the color associated with Bandit and after the The Reveal Bandit is the only main character unaccounted for.
    • Consider also her name...Keynes. Which might just be something a CEO might find funny...
The Destiny shown to Payet Best by the Basin of Foresight is... Nothing.
  • Best and the others gaze into the Basin of Foresight when Best asks to be shown his destiny. All the reader sees is the reflections of the party staring into the water, with Best getting increasingly more upset, and the others more and more surprised and shocked. So what destiny was Best shown? The same destiny he's always had: NOTHING!!! Seriously, is it that surprising? After all, he was mistaken for a hero of destiny anyways.
    • Very close! He saw his own grave.
