I wonder if trying to force and assign the roles has already started to backfire on Maynard. What was point of killing Nicole? My best guess would be to make sure that she had the position of peasant. And Thatch's actions seem to have derailed and enforced the whole plan. Would Aly have invoked Odinam's name if Thatch wasn't there and Maynard wasn't bleeding out? Probably not.
I suppose the obvious question is just where would Aly head off to? Look for Autumn, Grynn and the rest?
