Funny, because I read it completely in the opposite way. "It looks as if he was good, being haunted in the same way they were." Although I see now that it would make equal, if not more sense if that was that those he had contributed to killing haunted him. But I assume it's meant to be ambiguous anyway. So I am not sure.

Speaking of that, would that mean the option of "waiting it out" might be feasible again? Of course there is the ambiguity whether Zil was good or evil (if evil, then it should be fairly good in our favor, though). Can somebody do the maths? Are we once again in the "if one kill can be prevented..." situation? Because then it might be better to avoid the lynching. It would be close though, I bet.

I would not be too hasty about that. First, let's keep in mind that we really don't know whether Zil was a Wolf or not. Second, I don't actually think Shasta put Zil among his top three in any striking manner.

In fact, I was sorta surprised Zil got lynched in the end, because it started to look like he wasn't a very popular target. Obviously, Lalaith's vote for him was self-preservation. But that Shasta was indeed a "0.5", because he simply did not want to lynch Lalaith more.

Anyway, I have generally fairly good feeling about Shasta, myself. Whether I agree with his opinions or not, he seems to be thinking things through and it feels like it is genuine.
