Purple Hyacinth 85: Tragedies' Trail (with Fwoot and Lilia)

Purple Hyacinth 85: Tragedies' Trail (with Fwoot and Lilia)

On a gray and rainy day, Lauren and March pay a visit to the cemetery. Lauren visits Dylan's grave and seems to finally accept that he is dead. We discuss Lauren's character growth in that regard, growth that is also occurring in a different direction, one we hear about as she visits her parent's graves.   

Lauren articulates what we have inferred all along. She is struggling to integrate the vision of her parents with what she now knows about them. She is also beginning to question the views and institutions she was raised with, seeing everything in a new light.  

She expresses her confusion to March, who responds with a beautifully stirring speech adjuring Lauren to never give up the fight for justice.  It beautifully prompts and ties into our lengthy discussion about Ardhalis, the Phantom Scythe, justice, intentions, corruption, responsibility, change, and growth.  

We speculate about March and his wife's pasts, and the meaning behind the three angelic men at the party.
