We outlined Gravedust as the one to set Byron free here, but quickly realized that he’d be too busy elsewhere and that Frigg should get a crunchy moment before the big tank fight.

Rachel, Fr’Nj, and Scipio are with her because Frigg and Rachel will be paired up for that fight and it makes more sense to show them having met up here than after they’ve entered the fog of war.

That poor guard, one of our favorite running gags.

Phil’s note: A reader suggested once that Frigg’s “Activation Word” was Goddammit for smiting, since we happened to have her include that word both 2 for 2 times before the training sequence.

Given her nature and her approach to her spirituality, I can think of nothing more apropos.
