    The question is from which franchise.

    Pokémon?
    Digimon?
    Monster Hunter?
    Cadburys?

    They do look a little like large versions of the speckled mini eggs.

    They appear to be leaking and I guess the light from her pupils got refracted in the fluid, and I can't be bothered to finish whatever robot joke I have begun with the leaking thing. Or she is losing colored contact lenses.

    I think this is nice to confirm she really did love Wooster. And it shows how deep her devotion to Albia goes that she was/is willing to marry Gil despite that.

    I think miss Thorpe just trasferred to team Agatha.

    I'm not so sure it's a transfer - Wooster was on Team Agatha, but he was also undeniably devoted to Albia and England.

    Nah, like Manga Shoggoth says, Agatha happened to be the one there as Trelawney allowed herself to grieve. She's still a loyal subject of Albia.

    People can cry like that over deaths of parents, children, brothers, close friends, etc.

    She may have romantically loved Wooster, or he may have been a best friend, one of the people she most admired, etc. If she knew Gil for a number of years she may have cried in similar way for both Wooster and Gil if either died.

    If any close friend in Team Agatha died that Agatha has known for years then Agatha might simiarly cry over them as she cried over her adoptive parents temporary death.

    That being said... even if Wooster was not loved romantically... it could have quickly and easily flipped to become romantically in a single day. (The same could be said of other options for her, eg if Gil was grieving over a dead Agatha in her arms)

    What!?

    Maybe Wooster just ran into the clank ahead of everyone else and had a chance to add something to this message during all the recent chaos. Or, maybe, we're about to find out something very strange happened to Wooster (time bubble? outside of time?) and he's able to put messages where he shouldn't be able to put messages.

    Hey, a girl can dream.

    He's dead. This is a recording the message-clank made when he and it met in Sturmhalten. It's (unsurprisingly) how the clank ended up in England: Wooster sent it there.

    This second part was recorded in Sturmhalten, all right--Wooster's wearing the same outfit.

    Agatha ordered the clank to "find an airship coming in this direction" and then play the recording. Near the end of its evasion of the guard monster, it spotted one (last subpanel). The next page shows that it's Wooster flying in with Gil's prototype airplane, and the following pages show the clank arranging a distraction and flying off towards the plane. What we're seeing now is a recording of Wooster's reaction from when the clank found him and played the message to him.

    I think that this message could have made a difference. Agatha letting Klaus know that The Other was her mother that likely would have convinced Klaus that Agatha was still "in there" and could be saved. Klaus had suspected Lu was The Other, but wasn't sure. Klaus also would have been a LOT more careful around Agatha. Now I want to know why Albia didn't know that Lu was The Other since this message clearly states it. Something happened.
