Diagram of person falling through portalCohen here is using the good old standby, Fifth Venus.

He’s also referring to Miranda simply as “my daughter” — same way he did to cast magic on Miranda when she was younger — and with the same results: it applies to both Miranda and Sparrow.

At this point, Miranda has run the DNA, she’s read the test results, she figured out the magical connections. So she reinforced this gambit by setting it up that Cohen’s summoning power was doubled — without saying anything to tip him off that it would be, or why.

Layers and layers of cleverness on that girl.

The big tackling panel is a (role-reversed) callback to the Miranda-tackling-Sparrow panel from chapter 12.

“Bring my daughter to me”

Cohen: Here goes nothing . . .


Miranda: You better be grateful for this!


Sparrow: Wha–?!
