FB: Byron decides to get Best a Black Mercy.

This is a fairly efficient recap of Best and Byron’s relationship up to now, at least on Byron’s side (we’ll get into Best’s side soon enough). The real surprise is that Byron considers himself to have been “impossibly selfish” in the past, which I’m gonna presume is mostly about his hiding the Berserker Curse until it, well, killed everybody back in Chapter 8.

It feels like we probably should’ve used the gifts Byron gets for Frigg, Gravedust, and Syr’Nj more explicitly in the finale, especially the magick ring for Syr’Nj. (I wonder if Byron meant that ring as a preview for another ring he’d be giving her, a little further down the line.)
