In an earlier thread, it was puzzled out that "Wanda" might be a veil on the predictamancer with glasses, who also hasn't been seen lately and was standing in that position when Wanda was in the back.
As for juice, Jack could have had a scroll or more likely entered a duo-link with a GMTTA member. I don't think the GMTTA really want Parson going in without his casters, they just want to pretend that they don't know about it. That's called politics.
Re the difference to Parson of capital-change vs. capital-capture: if Charlie can arrange for Parson to be in Spacerock (or in a nearby hex - no flying for the heavy) without Wanda, that would be a huge win for anti-GK. Maybe he intends to time the portal move that precisely via a thinkagram to Slately.
Re fighting at night, recall Caesar and Jillian almost throwing it down. "If you break alliance, we'll drink your blood while singing campfire tunes", or something like that, was the threat.
Re hobgobwin betrayal, do we know if Jetstone is still allied to marbits? I don't think we've seen any references to their alliance since JS got a bunch slaughtered and uncroaked.
