i assume lloyd's words (double checker, double bind and such) meant that he was casting a spell. slately's fall (regedit, and again, assuming regedit was archons disabling the jetpack) happened after lloyd completed the spell (again, assuming his words meant a spell cast).
this makes me think that the "clone" , "secondary", "whatever u call it" is the one whose jetpack was regedited by archons and fell down.
however, in the last panel, Lloyd says "s-sure", which, i believe, implies uncertainty. what does that mean, exactly? does it mean that he lacks COMPLETE control over that spell?
I would like to point out that the Slatley that didn't fall down gloats on how he's now twice as strong/fast/etc, and then thanks to the dittomancer for having been created that way.
That's why he changes from struggling to suddenly going around croaking archons left and right. He's an improved copy of the original Slatley.
That's also why it is completely borked if he's permanent even if the original dies. Jetstone could've just gone around creating copies of their top units that are twice as good as before, then killing the original to make the improved duplicate stick. Rise and repeat every turn as the dittomancer recovers his juice (no, it is not expensive because he had already used a lot of juice over the turn and could still pull this of). Oh, and fully duplicate wargear on those units since you're at it.
Lloyd is worried at the ed because he didn't suceed on finishing the spell in time to help the original king, and his side is now stuck with a temporary king and will fall when he vanishes unless they get an heir in time.
