I really hope you're wrong. For if you are right, when he and Parson run out of the tunnel past Marie, Janis, and Sizemore, the force of the wind created by their passing will rip them out of most of their clothes, leaving them in their underclothes. Then they, too, would give chase. Depending on the strength of the Natural Whatever-mancy spell, the compulsion could, and I would argue, should, at that point, break down into a full blown Scooby Dooby Portals segment. It'd be awesome and take two years to be written.
Laughter aside, I have a question. Do we know if the MK has a ruling body or not? I know it looks like each -mancy has it's own hierarchy and whatever, but has it been stated that there's a government there? It is, in fact, a KINGdom. I'm just wondering, because if people got huffy about the situation to want to wage war on the MK, who would they wage it on? Seems like a rag tag group of unaffilliated, barbarian magic users could just say, "Yep. That happened. We didn't know that it could, but our Dollamancers have installed a new security system to ensure it won't happen again. If he tries, well, the new system will be GLaD to see him." Having a King allows someone to blame. Without it, it'd be like punching fog. A fog that can make flaming golems with a x3 mulitplier, read your mind, predict your moves, uncroak your losses...
Where's the fun in that?
