Last time, Cal had no respect for personal space (how charming! [/sarcasm]) and some maids prepared Mare for her first banquet. This time, the chapter opens with Mare thinking about what the queen said, and also about class divisions and the divisions therein.
Last time, Mare becomes a princess and also we learn her full name, Mary Mary The BitterTM ‘Mare Molly Barrow’. Also, I suspect the setting up of two love triangles. This time, “Lady Mareena Titanos” is Mare’s new title and she is repeating it to herself so she’ll remember.
Last time, Mare did the electric slide and passed out in Cal’s arms after Queenstrial. This time, flashback!
Last time, Mare got a job at the palace and Cal is the crown prince, oh no! This time, the chapter opens with Mare heading back to the servants’ platform, feeling confused and betrayed.
Last time, Cal gives Mare money and Mare guesses that Shade is a member of the Scarlet Guard. This time, the chapter opens with the Barrows’ door banging open!
Last time, the Summerton Silvers rioted upon seeing the Scarlet Guard broadcast, and Gisa’s hand was broken. This time, time skip!
Last time, Mare conveniently stumbled across someone who is willing to save her and Kilorn. However, it’s at a high price, so Mare goes to Summerton with Gisa to steal from more affluent robbees. This time, we open with Mare talking about how she surveys the crowd “like a wolf does a flock of sheep. Looking for the weak, the slow, the foolish.”
