Heyy I finally finished rereading Tower of God, and I feel like I know what’s going on again! Maybe even better than some of the characters, though I might also be imagining things.
Exhibit A: The devil of the right arm. Everyone’s pretty sure that Cassano has it in his possession,
and I don’t think they’re wrong, but I don’t think he’s absorbed it himself, at least not just yet.
Of course, that’s not to say that he definitely won’t (though I do have to wonder how he’s carrying it- did he get multiple compression flasks?) but it’s still possible that it might wind up attached to someone else altogether (if he tries to stick that shit on Traveller, I swear… But he did already give him Horyang’s spot in some regards, so maybe…? This is getting too rhetorical). Oh, and since I mentioned compression flasks,
The compression flask is red originally, and when Cassano put Emile in it turned blue. This makes sense, since Emile is blue elsewhere
just like the devil wings, or Baam’s rooms/bangs (sometimes). I guess it’s a good colour for powerful shinsoo. But look at the flask when Cassano gives it to Rachel:
It’s red again! Now it COULD have reverted in colour after some initial dramatic effects, but I don’t think so. I think that Cassano gave Rachel an empty flask. I think he is going against her.
I don’t actually have the slightest clue why Hwa Ryun thinks Rachel is so unbeatable, but since she’s Hwa Ryun I’ll believe that Rachel is a big deal. If Cassano IS messing with her, I hope he’s prepared. Then again, given his goal
(some men just want to watch the world burn) I don’t think he’ll mind too much if hell breaks loose.
