This seems reasonable. Recall, once Wanda got the 'pliers, she immediately found a corpse, zapped it, and proclaimed that she had no idea what she'd just created, aside from it beng "wonderful".
Also, have the similarities been pointed out yet how Stanley and Jillian are both Rulers who were happiest in the field, and came to rule their side when there was a massive disaster at home while they were out?
... hey, wait a minute, what's the timing on that? Did Gobwin Knob and Faq fall at the same time? GK fell when Stanley was out on a "special mission" with the casters... was that attacking Faq?
