This reunion had to be sweet and cute for the rest of the story to have emotional weight. Rachel wasn’t lying to herself. Her sisters really were as close and loving with her and each other as sisters ought to be. Once upon a time. Even Blair gets caught up in the nostalgia.

And the fact that both Hestia and Blair combine that expression of love with immediate trolling of the last person you’d expect them to troll shows they did glean a few things from Frigg besides how to beat people up.

I’m not sure anyone here is really using the word “shrewd” correctly, though.
