** Hell, it doesn't even address how ''Louise'' could have reacted. Did he honestly think that she would let the fact they were emotionally torturing her mother go without a hitch when she got reintroduced?

** There's also the fact that, the plot was jump started by him kidnapping Louise, which in turn made her act in ways that hurt the Cardinals father. However, he doesn't seem to realize that he doesn't have any grounds to criticize Karin, considering he kidnapped an allies child, murdered the other one, and gloats about it mind you, and he himself acting irrationally as a result, calling her a selfish bitch, while he stays mad at her for a death he indirectly caused through his criminal actions. Really, it makes the Cardinals speech come off as somewhat an AuthorTract.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The Annual "Harass the Valliere" Festival sounds like a harmless event where where Zerbst lead farmers on exciting 'hunts' through the border's contested land. Usually to break enough stuff to make it an annoyance, but not enough to warrant a repercussion.... That is until you learn that they do it on the one day when Karin refuses to leave her manor because Luise was taken years ago and she's likely grieving.
