I do. Even if we don't learn anything about how to defeat Hel, we may learn something about THIS Askr...Even basic facts, like what year it is—or what exactly happened here.

Trivia

  • Key information revealed in this chapter appears to have been foreshadowed in Book III's introduction movie. One of the foreshadowed points is the death of the Sharena of the alternate version of Askr where this chapter is set; without this chapter's context, however, a sizable portion of the fandom initially interpreted this particular foreshadowed point as instead foreshadowing the impending death of the primary version of Sharena.
