I've been wondering this whole time... when will Parson get around to remembering Misty's corpse and try to have her decrypted? Assuming I'm understanding correctly that moving her body would have kept it from de-popping? If we lose the combination of Wanda + Arkenpliers, this will no longer be possible.

Speaking of Royal Sentiments... how much do we know about the mechanics of Prince/Princess popping? We know Jillian can pop one (she doesn't look pregnant, so I'm assuming either it's too soon to show, or that it will poof out of thin air). We know various other Kings and Queens have produced them. The thing is... do we know if a single King can simply order their production queue to crank one out, or does it take both a Father and Mother (Both royal or one non-royal)? For instance, did Slately's sons require cooperation from a neighboring Queen (Say, Unaroyal's Bea)?
In which case... who is the father of Jillian's Heir? Somehow I can't picture it being Don or Vinnie, although I won't exclusively rule it out (but it would provide justification for Don's massive expenditures). The most likely possibility is actually Ansom, considering the night they shared together on his Magic Carpet (if Jillian can retroactively validate the father when she finally decided to pop an heir many turns after their encounter).

I prefer to be immature and assume it's a reference to Ansom's Peener. "Ansom's Carrotstick"
