    One of the things that surprised me was how handily the Corinthian beat Loki. On Loki’s own turf, even!Report

      Loki strikes me as the kind of guy that can be bested in physical combat fairly easily. It’s outwitting him that’s difficult.

      I wonder if not having “eyes” is a help when dealing with a trickster like Loki; maybe it somewhat (even if only symbolically) negates his advantage in disguise/deception.Report

        Oh, that’s good. Matthew was fooled repeatedly, but the Corinthian not once.Report

        The Corinthian was also forewarned, thanks to Celia’s eyes. He knew who he was looking for (why else look in a realm from Norse myth?) and he knew he couldn’t possibly kill Dream through strangulation, so it was a win-win situation all around.Report

    I never understood Desire’s MO in this. Why lure Rose out to England? S/He brought her out there, arguably sicked a trist on her, shows up in Morpheus’ old prison acting like S/he’s about to do some very interesting exposition, lets Rose derail it with a rant about love and then snarkily departs. I mean I understand s/he is by nature a tease but what was the point? Getting Rose out of California? Could she have somehow interfered? Why? It never made any sense to me.Report

    • Avatar Jason Tank says:

      Yeah, it’s hard to fathom. My best guess is that Rose’s rant about love was enough to change Desire’s fickle mind about the whole thing, but s/he originally intended to tell Rose about why she was conceived, and maybe set her on a path to help Dream.
