I love the style of TV. And we get some more info about the plans of the RCCII at the bridge, and that the massive column is Haggar's forces.

Sure the Decrypted Blitzkrieg has been pretty straightforward up until now, but that's because they outmatched all their opposition to the point that they didn't need to do anything clever.
What makes it sound like the Don isn't being smart or that he thought the battle would be straightforward?
It is from Caesar's perspective after all, why not party? TV only has, physically, a few bats there - everything else rests with Jillian. If anything it makes it sound like Caesar thinks the battle would be straightforward - but Don has been taking the whole war with GK very seriously for a while now, too seriously in Caesar's eyes (going back to the summer updates). And here the king is alone, while everyone else is doing what they were ordered - have fun.
Makes me think the Don was expecting something might happen, and was letting his guys relax while they could before sending them off to what might be their deaths (even Caesar notes this the biggest battle since the RCCI died
at the volcano).
What is happening at the bridge has been a wake up call for all the warlords, Caesar included, now. So at the Don's party it might have gotten to Caesar that GK really is a threat and the Don has been right to appear so preoccupied by the war with them.
But it does make me wonder - we know:
A. Jillian has been working with Charlie
B. Jillian has kept the fact from TV and thus the RCCII as a whole.
C. Jillian didn't tell Vinnie what she was actually going off to do, so I guess the rest of the RCCII doesn't know her or Charlie's real plan (whatever it is) either
D.... So is she in the Jetstone capital under false pretenses? Do Don King and Slately think she is doing one thing while she is actually preparing for something else entirely?
And so my time with the Tardy Elves draws to a close, and I am let to ponder how the experience will... eh, I'll finish later. No need to rush.
