*SPOILER ALERT OF CHAPTER 1 OF BOOK 5*
So…I finished reading the first chapter of Book 5 and…honestly, I already figured out that Rhian WAS the Snake and that e controlled the scims, after I finished and understood Book 4.
It was kind of obvious that Rhian was the Snake since he kept bringing up the topic of Lies and Truth just like the Snake did when he had Sophie and Agatha in the Castle with the fake pen.
Yes , everybody knows that , but the ACTUAL mystery is WHO is Rhian’s backup , remember RHIAN and THE SNAKE fought , but I really wonder , like is the snake a different person or a phantom conjured by Rhian or something , and also HOW did Rhian even get his finger glow , remember , nobody knows him .
I just remembered that Agatha’s altar boy Willam said he had a brother. What if his brother is/was in Arbed house?
I don’t think so. Why would Tristan tell his brother to stay away from Tedros, if they were friends? Plus, if William happened to be Tristan’s brother, he would have mentioned it or flinched or shown any reaction (likely anger or vengeance) at the mention of Aric’s name (as Aric murdered Tristan) and I don’t recall him doing that.
But wouldn’t it be kinda great if he was Tristan’s brother?
I think William would know who killed Tristan because he knows the Tale.
UNLESS you are saying that William does not know he is Tristan’s brother. Then it would make sense they being brothers.
Why wouldn’t he know? Not saying you’re wrong, just asking for theories
