Second Mercury pendantThe print version of this page has splash-panel Miranda in full color.

She’s not using the standard Fifth Pentacle of the Sun, which transports people from one real-world physical position to another. No, she’s concerned Sparrow is in an extradimensional space, or a timey-wimey paradox, or something equally weird and unprecedented.

So this is the Second Pentacle of Mercury:

“The Spirits herein written serve to bring to effect and to grant things which are contrary unto the order of Nature; and which are not contained under any other head. They easily give answer, but they can with difficulty be seen.”

Malachim:

אֵלֵֽךְ אֲחֹ֣תִי אֶל אִם

“I, unto my sister, will depart”


Miranda (phone): After I hang up, wait two minutes, then summon me.

Cohen: O-okay. What name should I . . . ?

Miranda (phone): Just do what you did when I was a kid.

Miranda (text): Any chance Sparrow decided to show up late at your place?

Bianca (text): no! no sign of her yet!!

Miranda (text): Figures.

Poe: If anyone can do this, it’s my Mandy.

Miranda: . . . Yeah.
