Eddy’s reply could have something to do with the tombstones with everyone’s names on them. Does anyone think that Hades’ goal might include fusing the UW and the real SB together? Peter Pan wanted to create “the new Neverland” in SB and I could see Hades doing something similar in SB.
This seems likely — or something to that effect. It’d be in line with their whole Hades~Satan shtick. Down to the Paganini reference — there’s the legend that Paganini sold his soul to the devil to play the way he did, so the name drop at the end with Cora wasn’t innocent.
What I’m curious about is what Hades meant when he said that each time the clock ticks the UW loses a soul. Why would that be, I wonder?
