If casters start randomly returning to other sides, on the same turn that Parson violates MK neutrality by passing to an enemy capital, then it looks all the more convincing that the MK is going to war. This helps Charlie immensely.

I think she may still be in shock. Ossomer turning will have totally shattered her faith and she is probably questioning all of her assumptions and confidence that she has found the right Path again. It's not as extreme as the Jillian-suggestion-backlash, but it's having a similar outward effect.
As for the Archons, remember that this scene is still a little bit behind the events we have already seen in Jetstone. So not ALL of the Archons will have dusted yet, so she is just assuming the battle is continuing as normal. Or, her shock as I outlined above is preventing her from really NOTICING. Like how when you're really deep in thought, and someone says your name? You physically hear it, but don't register and respond.
