Megan arrives with magic scepter. It looks kinda like a torch. Or an umbrella. Or La Petite / BlitzGirl folded up. (I know you can't do that with real people, but this is a stick figure.) Or just another flag. The new newpix doesn't help. Cueball seems worried, so probably not just another flag. Fo...

So, he's repairing the very last part of the damage after spending a few frames looking around to find it I guess? Then it will be all done :D And he can continue adding to the castle, with Megan coming back. I vote for a new tower on the wall he constructed differently when he repaired it.
