The link gets broken, she shunts the damage (killing Misty and Mindwarping Jack in the process), and recovers to find this stupidworlder... who then goes on to nuking every single witness to the end of the first RCC, except Parson and his casters. Where did Charlie get that intel? Still mindreading his decrypted Archons?
if Maggie is Charlie, then the tri-link must not be all that difficult, considering Charlie was talking with Parson while it was causing a cataclysm:http://www.erfworld.com/book-1-archive/?px=%2F136.jpg
Charlie doesn't like risk (Charlie's Rule #17: Don't bet on the lame runner, unless you know you can shoot the healthy one. Corollary: Betting on the healthy runner and shooting the lame one is the better bet.), so he most definitely would not risk his life and identity just to punish someone for not hiring him. He could have just as easily aided the RCC for cheaper if it was that big of a deal to him.
We have seen into Maggie's mind during text updates, and we got no hint that Archon thinkamancy was anything more than a really crude parody of what a true thinkamancer could do. True, it could be her feeling vastly superior for being better, but I find it fairly unlikely. Also, Parson would have seen she was an archon when he looked at her with the glasses, and Isaac would definitely know if he ever had a thinkagram with her, or through any other shared thinkamancy (like breaking the tri-link perhaps).
I'm afraid that the odds of Maggie being Charlie or one of his Angels is incredibly, incredibly low...
