And maybe she'll have long hair and be barefoot and burst into song and all of Jack Stryker's wildest dreams will come true.

I admit, that did make me chuckle. ;)

To Jack, personally: I'm not going out of my way to troll you; at least, not as much as I troll other people. Don't take offense to this. It's just that I'm bored without Rock Knight around to argue with.

Well, you might be right about the song part.



I haven't seen any screenshots showing her barefoot though, but I doubt she will be.  And somehow I'm pretty sure she'll have that same hairstyle throughout the whole episode.

On an unrelated note, I wonder who that lady on the left is.  Maybe Hagatha in disguise?

*ahem!* If I may present you with this:

That should (hopefully, assuming there's no bait and switch here) answer your question.

Wow... I hadn't seen that article.  So you can have Graham fall in love with either one, and the one he gets with in the end becomes Valanice?  I did not see that coming.  I guess that rules out Hagatha then.

I admit, I thought the same as you you did before this. I saw the dark haired lady and immediately became very suspicious of her.

I wonder why the promo shots focus more on the purple dress princess.  To be honest, given she has brown hair, she looks closer to Valanice in past canon. 

And then it begs the question where the name Valanice comes from since neither of them have that name (just parts of it).

Probably because the redhead is more recognizable to fans.

And actually, a friend of mine has a theory about that:

I like your friend's theory and hope they go that route.

I don't know.  It's a nice theory, but it kinda contradicts the whole thing about the one you ultimately choose becoming the canon Valanice.

Depends on how they do it, I think.  It also depends on how different the two ladies are to begin with.

I'm calling it: the purple-dressed princess will turn out to be a wolf in sheep's clothing, and the green-dressed princess--the less obvious choice--will have hidden depths to her. But either way, Graham will end up with the right girl by the end.

That's true. There's no right or wrong lady to choose, I doubt.

Maybe the true Valanice are the friendships we made along the way.

The true romance is between the players and the game.

In KQ's case, better sappy than the alternative, grim-dark. *cough*MoE*cough*
