If I were Parson, I would also consider Jillian/FAQ the most immediate threat to GK. First and foremost, she has shown herself to be highly unpredictable. Second, she has a tremendous amount of influence on Wanda, and has shown an ability to use that to screw with his plans. Third, she has now taken to directly attacking GK's smaller cities with impunity.
JS/Transylvito do not appear to be poised to launch any offensives against GK, so destroying FAQ makes the most sense overall, as either of the former would likely have to rely upon support from Jillian to make any moves.
Having said all that, though, if Parson thinks he can take a smaller force and dispatch Slately or Tremennis (depending on who stays vs. who flees), while still being able to deal with Jillian/FAQ directly, that would be the best option overall. Taking out both sides simultaneously would likely make Transylvito far more tractable than they are right now.
