    It's also possible that he was loyal to Lucrezia, but concluded that he didn't know when she was coming back and that continuing her plans with a false Heterodyne would be superior to letting Wulfenbach develop a dynasty. After all, a fake Heterodyne who depended on his backing could be more easily crushed or subverted for Lucrezia's return than a strong and intact Wulfenbach dynasty.

    In fact, it's entirely possible he hoped to eventually try copying Lucrezia's mind into Zola (who is a relative of Lucrezia and therefore potentially qualifies, although of course if that was his plan then Zola was a step ahead of him.)

    It sounds to me like Colette is grateful for the assistance provided by Castlebot. "Bonsoir cherie" translates roughly as "Good evening, dear", and I take the bit about subverting the city as being a joke, not a complaint.

    In case we want to abandon the Seine pun, GG XXII: "INSOLENCE!" might work. Both Castlebot and Trainbot have said it to Sparks in the last 5 pages or so.

    Agatha had the time to put Heterodyne sigils on her hairpins? She's really getting good at this 'multitasking during a crisis' thing.

    Also, fuzzerpiller sighting, for those who worry about that.

    It also could be that he needed to participate in the Storm King plot to maintain his position, which allowed him to continue to work for Lucrezia. As Ellen said, Tarvek might not have known everything or he might have simplified things while talking to Agatha.

    Yes, that's basically the way I read it, too. It's worth remembering that Agatha was just parading around on the hijacked child catcher, so it's no wonder that Colette teased her for subverting the city's systems that way. I think Colette was complaining a little bit about that, but not harshly. In any case, Colette stopped it and took control back. I don't expect any more ramifications.

    It's also possible that Tarvek, at that point in the story, choose to lie to Agatha because "My entire family is comprised of power-mad scheming liars" is not really a good prequel to " ... and you should marry me and make me your consort!".

    And he was doing so well after unfairly blaming Agatha for the huge battleclanks attacking Mechanicsburg and allowing his bodyguard to hold a knife next to Agatha's neck.
