"it was agreed, that my endeavours should be directed to persons and characters supernatural, or at least romantic; yet so as to transfer from our inward nature a human interest and a semblance of truth sufficient to procure for these shadows of imagination that willing suspension of disbelief for the moment"
-Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Oh boy, Golden Dawn soap opera fans, this season ought to be good!*
Now there's a 20-year conspiracy against the HOGD, and the puppetmaster will soon be revealed! Is it last season's villain, the dastardly Nick Farrell? Is it a character we thought was written out of the plot? Or someone we haven't seen? Are the writers going to keep the continuity of past seasons, or completely recast the entire history?
If it's one person behind all the things woven together as a decades long conspiracy, they'll have to have been around the GD since the 90s, pulling the strings of the Ciceros. They'd have to be really old now, unless...
It's a Demon! Or a vampire, vampires are kind of played out in the mainstream, but the occult community is ripe for a good vampire genre resurgence.
I'm betting it's a Black Brother though, he's been sampling from the early GD school's bag of tricks for the last couple of years, complete with new revelations from the Secret Chiefs. I'm hoping for something on par with Fabrato, one of the 99 Black Lodges or something, but I don't really expect anything that good.
[Edit: The plot thickens! I started this post yesterday, and went to publish it this morning and found that the post has been removed! Nick is worried that the Black Rosicrucians might have gotten to him, so he's thoughtfully re-posted the last message of David Griffin. I really hope it doesn't turn out to have been a test episode, a potential plot line that didn't get enough positive feedback from the test audience.]
[Edit 2: The post is back, thanks for the heads up, Satyr Magos!]
