Goodness! Tarquin can figure out how long it takes to fly to Windy Canyon. Tarquin should notice OOTS took somewhat longer to get there. Maybe they went out for sushi, or maybe they retrieved their Big Gun.
As for Z vs. archers, there's really not much more to say except to remind y'all that Z had more than a day to prepare spells and deliberately chose to take those that let him take out the weaker character instead of the stronger one. If you want to believe that Z is now able to take on Haley face-to-face, well I sincerely hope we see it.
The race is not always to the swift nor the contest to the strong, but that's the way to bet.
