Would they have introduced this at all if Ginny hadn’t been pregnant in real life?
Allegedly they had the baby plot planned out before they even knew Ginny was pregnant, and it was just a happy coincidence. Allegedly.
I don’t really have any clear ideas about what exactly she wants the baby for. Kinda like the idea that she needs it as a vessel for the courage, brain and heart, though that’s a bit creepy. Have also wondered if maybe she just wants a baby to raise as her own. And I’m also wondering, if now that the Snowflake will be heavily guarded, perhaps Zelena will just take the Philora baby instead, because it’s gotta be due round about now if it hasn’t arrived already. We know we’re getting Philora again, in 319, I think? The pics we have are of them in FTL, dunno if they’re also in SB this time around, but it’d make sense if they were.
