TM9 couldn’t decide on a plan so Matt nudged them in a direction, go to Aeor and bring down whatever the eyes of nine are. they might also have some insight into Lucien’s abilities now, but it’s also possible they’re even more of an open book to him too #CriticalRoleSpoilers
i LIED i said good night but i have too many Thoughts™
what are the odds Lucien heard them talking about running and brought Caleb+Beau in for that reason bc now they have a personal investment, now they have to see it thru #CriticalRoleSpoilers
Also, the eyes could just be a taste of power. Not unlike Orthax giving Percy a small arcane ability through Magic Initiate. Perhaps it will augment Caleb's already incredible talent... or give Beau a taste of it that she'll use as a tool and nothing more.
