    Wait wait, all this time Elan could have been good at combat without punning, and all it took was being dominated?

    That is quite a long memory to have lasted more than a combat round

    That being said, I wonder what the climax/big reveal will be for the memory

    Oh Roy, trying to talk down the dominated teammate? Not sure that'll work.

    Probably going to be at least one more strip to build the tension, for pacing purposes, before getting to the point of the memory

    You have to hand it to Vampire!Durkon. He doesn't gloat before his enemies are actually dead.

    Roy need to talk Elan in to casting Mass CLW again, to help out the Vampires (and maybe stabilize V).

    As confused as Elan is (his natural state, but being dominated makes it worse) he might just do it.

    I wonder why this vision is occurring in real time... The first time with "Thor's Nuts!" it was almost instantaneous yet this memory seems to take longer.

    Also I'm dying to see what Durkon thinks about the church especially when his mother is living on a meager pension.

    I trust we’re all agreed that, since Roy’s thrown sword kept us from finding out what they showed Durkon in the temple’s back room, it will turn out to be the important revelation, right?

    And that seems to clear up whether or not Hel can grant the "Instant Vampirization" spell or not. I wonder how that will shake things up in the future of the OotS world...

    It's possible that Durkola's "this happens at the speed of thought" was a lie. Or that it happens at the speed of thought IF he concentrates on it, and forces it. But right now he's just letting it simmer in the back of his mind

    So ... I guess the dominatrix in the title pun is the sassy vampiress with the cooperative host? Since she made lots of spawn, I mean.

    Looks like Durkon has been paying attention and noticed something about which memories distract the vampire and which don't.

    Although am I the only one thinking this memory is a bit selective? It's like he remembered that line at exactly the right point.

    "Haley is hurt! She needs healing!"

    That's what I thought Roy would say. Alas, my ability to predict The Giant is limited. Actually, I kind of suck at it.

    But now I'm stuck wondering what is at the back of Thor's temple that has memory Durkon so down. My bet is that it's enough treasure to make a dragon say, "Too much treasure..."

    But among that treasure is likely to be an evil relic secured for so long it's been forgotten. A lure to draw Durkula away from the long term goal. Sort of an evil side quest, and we all know how simple straightforward side quests turn out.

    I wonder why Sigdi has been giving all her money to the Temple. And why she seems to absolutely refuse to accept gifts and wants to repay all her debts.
    Might it have something to do with Durkon's father? Was the story of his death untrue? Perhaps this memory will reveal the truth once and for all.

    Yup. Though I'm wondering how it might tie into the news about Durkon's exile, that Roy is trying to bring up.

    And the Truth shall set you free? That does seem like the next narrative step.
    "Ok, trees. We are about to go into a dungeon--hey, Twigs, you paying attention?--ok, so stay out here, and if we come running out of there with a hoard of monsters behind us you're going to go all Harry Potter on them as if they were cars. No, Itchy-Bark, it's a reference. Ever heard of breaking character? *Sigh* Just stay here and kill things that chase us out. Make like a tree and... stay."

    Everyone else seems to become dumber when dominated, so trust Elan to become smarter and more persuasive.

    The suspense over the vision is killing me here. Also, I love how Elan has become even more annoying now that he is dominated.

    I honestly have no idea what Durkon saw, or how it links to the truth of his exile.
