Now now... he might not be dead.

As was earlier stated, fall damage is an INCREDIBLY unpredictable thing. He might just be incapacitated.

Considering the "GNSP" (Good Night Sweet Prince) sound effect on impact, he's dusted.

I think you're being way too optimistic. GNSP is about as definitive an ending as you can get there. Still love how those allusions are worked into the sound effects of the comic, btw, especially when tailored so appropriately.

Well, there's that... and also the massive cloud of dust he turned into.

Well Ossomer is dust, so apparently turning doesn't involve any conversion to back to standard unit. In many books if a vampire is cured they become human again. Not so here, he just loses his compulsions it looks like.

Nice to see that if (when really) the Archons go down, they at least will go down with a fight.

But now we'll never know if the 'pliers would have compelled him back to Wanda's side. Oh well.

I hope one at least survives, so that Parson can get over his shyness long enough to find out from her whatever it is Charlie doesn't want him to know.

I had to look up gnsp because I didn't get a "good night sweet prince" reference or anything else.

The only thing I found was group non-sensitive to profiling.
I liked this because with a bit of change it fit the scenario even better... ground non-sensitive to persons... or otherwise a new way of saying splat.

Is it possible that this Ossomer that we saw being dusted is a duplicate created by the Dittomancer? (he seemed quite busy casting something in an earlier update)

I may be mistaken, but I think it was stated somewhere that Dittomancers were able to duplicate even units, if at least for a limited time... no? If not, my bad. :D
