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.”


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.
