Hrm, I guess I didn't read the Seeress' words carefully enough the first time around. Yes, I do now think the Bishop is involved. Father Michael was truly concerned, and he must have taken her advice. As she foretold, he did become closer to his God. I still stand by my original suspicion, though. The Bishop may have provided the human hands she spoke of, but something which transpired at the Trinity Ball still does not sit well with me.

Oh, excuse me, it was not at the Ball. It was in episode 3.1 Bar Games. Heh, sure is a lot of material to keep in mind. :P

Ouch. I didn't actually look at that episode (SHN 5.5) again until just now, but you're right. Her advice/prophecy/whatever DID come true:

"Tell him how deeply the fires concern you, and all your doubts will be removed, I assure you. Your fears will be a thing of the past, and you may find yourself closer to your God than you've ever been."

The Seeress is more ruthless than I thought ... To be fair, though, it wasn' intended to happen like that. Her little bit of reverse psychology just backfired.

The woman, Sarah, and the vyrolakos thing though ... why did she literally answer the questions she's asked, knowing it would lead to bloodshed? Hrm.

I don't really recall, but did we ever see this Sarah again?

I'm not sure if the Seeress was using reverse psychology on him. He asked her for advice, and she gave him what he wanted. He wanted answers, and he found them, in a manner. She doesn't hold priests in the highest regard, as her comments to Johnny at the end of that episode inferred. Perhaps I'm being to harsh on her, but I don't think she values life very much. As long as the powers are in balance, she's probably content to toy with people for her own amusement. She sure got a kick out of toying with Ray.

I wonder what Lily is up to these days.

Not that I remember, no. It's a bit of an untied plot thread at the moment.

She was sort of using reverse psychology... the potential was there for it to be reverse psychology, anyway. But I think you're right, it most likely doesn't matter to her whether or not he survives. She was probably just seeing what would happen. She's really not very nice, is she? :P

I'm holding resolution of Sarah's plot for the future, as a pay-for-subscription outfit recently picked up my proposition for a Nazareth Falls-based serial. More details on that later. :P
