So what do we learn from this? Wanda helped make the glass "coffin" in a tricaster link with Tina Turner. We know that tricaster links being broken can kill the units in the link up. And of course, Wanda can't
die. Did fate cause the link up break to kill Maxwell for Wanda's sake?
Not necessarily. She could have been in a duo-caster link with Tina Turner. Just like Misty and Sizemore linking up with no bad side effects, Wanda could have linked with Tina and been perfectly fine. It's the tri-caster link that is so dangerous. And remember, Misty and Sizemore could not remember how to do anything from the link-up, so it fits. Could be a tri-caster, though.
On the turning front... Jillian turns - to Wanda
. She could also turn to Judy. Technically, Jillian would still be a Haffaton unit, but not loyal to Olive Branch. But Olive would think
that Jillian was loyal to her because of the heroine buds, therefore would not suspect any duplicity. This may have been part of the reason that Wanda was trying to turn Jillian with the box - she would have been loyal to her Mistress, not Olive.
Ouch, Olive is so very very dead.
Options on that front:
Judy commits suicide. Not fun, but she would probably prefer it to her current life.
Judy dies from heroine overdose. I think the only thing holding her together right now is just that Olive is heir designate, and Olive the Ruler would be even worse than Olive the Puppetmaster. Then, Jillian is free to kill Olive - and hopefully destroy the heroine buds. Man, I hope that everyone is released from their hold when Olive Branch dies.
Judy steps down and flies away. We have never actually seen a ruler step down, but this does not mean it isn't possible. As Judy said, she just wanted to fly away (using the witch's broomstick, which is fascinating - implications galore!). She doesn't want to be the ruler of Haffaton anyway. And if Jillian kills the new ruler of Haffaton (Olive), then Judy no longer has to worry about the anklet. I think this is the most likely.
