Christopher continues to remain quite a mystery. However, as shown, he was quite adored, and one can only assume that his level of influence and prominence was likely seen as a threat to Lord Grandfather, hence Christopher’s name being blacklisted.

Also, when you think about it, this makes him being the robbed person all the more possible. But, why would Christopher attack the kids’ wings, especially living dolls, with scorches and even a phantom? That’s hard to say. Maybe it is to cripple Lord Grandfather’s system? Hence why he may have forced the Belles, who are Isabelle and Mirabelle’s living dolls, to break the coffee that indoctrinates everyone?

It’s all hard to say. The only thing we know for sure is Emilico’s showing during the attack and her gaining Olly, and Oliver’s attention could help Kate and Emilico’s quest to be Star Bearers.

On The Fence

Feeling Like A Lot Is Going On, But The Story Isn’t Moving Forward

The pacing of any show, including “Shadows House,” can be weird. You’d think in a second season, we’re hitting the ground running for most of the foundation is laid, and while there are new characters, they won’t slow things down. That isn’t the case here.

There doesn’t seem to be a real sense of urgency as other things pop up and make it clear that Lord Grandfather is going to be a backend storyline. After all, we haven’t seen the man or his inner circle this season. Never mind Edward, who is supposed to watch over the Children’s Wing, yet doesn’t know about this robed character or shows any signs he takes this duty seriously.

But, you could submit that, before “Shadows House” speeds off with the attempt to take down Lord Grandfather, they have to show that Kate wasn’t the first to try and the consequences suffered from doing so. Never mind, there is the chance that maybe the coffee and so much more we see could be something started because of Christopher, and that has to be set up?

Which is all to say, as someone who isn’t that patient, sometimes it feels like we get a minimal amount of story to move things forward, and the rest is Emilico and Kate’s comedy routine.

"Shadows House" slow start is a bit frustrating, but you can see while it is taking longer than some may like to lay down the groundwork, it could all pay off in the end.
