Ok, anyone have any wild guesses as to who might be behind all this church chaos? I have a good feeling it's someone we've already met. These things tend to have more punch when the culprit is established and without suspicion. Of course, I could be way off here, I usually am. I don't mind being pleasantly surprised, though.
I believe whomever is behind the burnings and recent bombing has a vested interest in the church, not vigilantes, which points to a few obvious characters, like his Excellency, Bishop Roy O'Halloran. His statement in episode 9.4 Party Politics:
"Nonsense. As you said, it's about the greater good. Believe me when I've said that the result of this wedding means as much to me as it does to you."
I don't suspect the bishop, though. It's too blatant. It's who she wants us to suspect. I believe this comment was referring to Pamella's bisexuality, and the Bishop's hopes that her marriage would "straighten her out". Notice the haphazard manner in which Chuck glosses over Stacey and Lilly's relationship? Right.
So? Who else? Well, there's the fact that the Bone Lords were part of the whole thing. We garnished this knowledge from the Seeress. Her warnings to Ray way back in episode 2.6 Ray Vallenzio and the Chamber of Seeress:
"It was not your place to stop the fire. Powerful things stir on the streets of Star Harbor. To interfere in their plans this early would do nothing but bring your pitiful self to their attention. They would pluck you off from the skin of the earth as a man picks off a flea."
The powerful things we were led to believe were the Bone Lords, which Ray did mention as being the force he and his team were slated to combat. That idea has been like a stream flowing just below the surface of the story, referenced many times by a few players, most recently by Perfect in episode 10.3 Perfect Reasoning. Whomever is behind the Bone Lords is also behind these church burnings. Whomever is behind those must also be connected to the recent bombing.
Who do I have my eye on? Well, I'm not sure if I want to name names, but let's just say he's got connections to High places, and can be a bit creepy. ¬.¬
