Panel 2 – Heather and Kith aren’t scared, just kind of curious what will happen.

Panel 4 – Party hats make a reappearance. In Chapter 1 Loki used a variation of Dionysus’s spell to play a prank on the Elves.

Panel 5 – Warding against magic costs Mana, so to keep the Mana cost low magic users only ward against a narrow range of magic they think might be used against them. Witches of the Party God Dionysus are Party Witches and have mostly fun (non-hostile) magic.
