She just attacked him, killed a bunch of his people, and destroyed one of his cities. Whatever she may be to Wanda, to Parson she's an enemy who is killing his people. And who has put herself, and her entire kingdom, in a vulnerable position to do it.

Parson gets held up by Janice in TMK, Don argues with Cesar, Slately and Trem discuss the heirship, Jillian and Ansom discuss the nature of free will...

Unless he returns to GK by way of the Portal (which is extremely improbable), it's likely he'll be taking the field against Jillian's forces in parson ( ), which I doubt VERY seriously would be acceptable to Wanda. Or I can see Stanley going after FAQ himself; after all, he took it once before, in the face of stronger resistance. Since she's out razing GK cities at the moment, it'd be amusing if Stanley beat her to FAQ, took it, and reduced her to Barbarian Princess once more. Of course, if Charlie found out and acted fast enough, he could take GK, which would make for all kinds of cluster-faqery . . .
But then, given the latest interaction between Wanda & Jillian, Wanda may decide that a decrypted Jillian-slave is acceptable . . . and with an Ansom-slave, she can have the kind of 3-somes that can only be dreamt of.

Edit: One thing I have to wonder . . . Jillian acquired 40K Schmuckers from razing Progrock . . . Is this like D&D (I have 50K gold pieces in my belt pouch!) where she has it with her, or is it something that's 'deposited' in her vaults / piggybank back in FAQ? This could have some bearing on matters.
I don't think he knows the depths of Wanda's feelings for her. Remember, his response to Wanda's discussion of why Jillian was there was "she could be there for Ansom, right?" There's no way he would have said that if he realized Wanda's actual feelings.Zeku wrote:What's with the coldness that Parson is extending towards Jillian?
He knows that Wanda has an interest in her, right? Why would he even consider destabilizing Wanda by killing Jillian? (even if he is dead under those conditions)
He knows nothing of the sort. Jillian left the fight, sure, but from a tactical position what she did made complete sense. What did she stand to gain by fighting? She's grabbing Gobwin Knob's cities cheaply while everyone else is wasting troops fighting. If Gobwin Knob loses, she'll probably just be able to hold those cities; even if they win, there's a chance they won't be strong enough to hit her immediately.He also knows that Jillian cut him a break by not fighting for Jetstone, so it just seem like he should be ambivalent towards her.
