He's lost archons, allies, and there's a large army on his doorsteps (not really, but if they were to capture GK, he can guess where they're going next). If he can't ally with FAQ then his last option is Stanley purely out of survival, and the last place he wants to be is in debt to someone else.
So here's what bothers me: the motives don't match up. Is Charlie claiming he wants to off Stanley just to win Jillian's trust? Revenge? Bad blood? If the RCC II is going to be on a witch-hunt for nonroyals with Arkentools, then Charlie ought to swallow his pride and get himself on better terms with Gobwin Knob, since they hold most of the cards right now.
Yes, but Charlie knows he's burnt a good deal of the bridge to being on working terms with Parson. I doubt Parson would trust Charlie as far as he could throw him, so that might not even be an option.
Charlie is doing this, if he gets Jillian to side with him, a foot in the door of the RCC II.
