Checking the archives, Parson communicates his plan (p48) to Wanda as "lets do lunch" via thinkomancy. Wanda and Jack apparently knows this as a possible plan (as Maggie does per page 42, while Sizemore doesn't) because even though Parson does a follow-up in page 52 that includes securing the portal room he does not tell Maggie to tell them he will be coming there. Marie predicts Parson coming to MK in text 37. Maggie tells Isaac by encrypted G-string in text 40. JoJo can be seen getting into position in page 57 while Sizemore digs the tunnel and Marie and Janis arrives. Finally, Maggie gets communication form Isaac that the thinkomancers are getting there in 58.
So as I see it, Charlie and then JoJo could have found out by way of:
A) Unsecure, off-screen thinkomancy
B) Decrypting G-string communication
C) A predictomancer
D) Spy among the thinkomancers
I would rate them:
A) Unlikely, not in Balder's style
B) Unllikely, Charlie is already way powerful, giving him that power too seems pointless
C) Possible, Charlie has been mentioned as an excellent employer for MK casters
D) Probable, because the idea has now been introduced, also we have been given more information on the Great Minds then on a possible hired predictomancer
So, I would say JoJo's appearance does support the spy theory. Unless I missed some part of the communication.
