What in the world did he realize?!? I've been staring at the picture of Ellen forever, but I can't figure anything out! Any ideas? I need bunny power!

I don't know either, it's the weirdest moment in the Raven/Grace/Ellen confrontation. Either he realized something about Ellen being a duplicate of Eliot, or he knows something about parallel worlds, but in all cases he knows/realized something the average teacher normally doesn't know. Maybe he's in contact with one of the wizard characters we saw in the prequel ("Hidden Genesis", is that it ?). Or he's an agent of Lord Tedd. Which would really be creepy. I'm very afraid of Lord Tedd.

O.o Lord Tedd? I never even thought of that. But if that was the case, I think he would known about Grace a long time ago. Given his intelligence, I think he would've figured it out the moment he saw Grace.

Oh, right, the whole Raven plot-line... totally forgot that.. but it's been too long already!
But, well, we don't really got any new input on it - I think. Dan hasn't been known for overly subtle foreshading in earlier stories but that /may/ have changed ;)
With the direction EGS seems to be drifting into, it wouldn't surprise me if Raven was a mage, too, and thus was living so long. Can't think on anything else now, what kind of long-living folks Dan would want to introduce.

Maybe an immortal. The bit about him being Mama Kitsunes teacher when she was at school...
He could have recognized Ellen from somewhere, as something, or being similar to someone.
That odd finger position always bugged me. It could just be narrowing in on the face/certain parts, to better spot the bits that are the same or jog his memory or whatever. But maybe some sort of magical detection, similar to that wand Mr Veres used?

My guess (and others, I think) is that Raven can detect magical awakenings in the same manner as Mr. Verres magical pregnancy test device. He got a false positive out of Grace, then moved on to have a close look at Ellen... and got the same result.

In other words, he knows about magic, but doesn't necessarily know about Uryoms. He already knows one or two (or three or four?) other awakened individuals: Nanase, maybe Justin, possibly Noah... was there a fourth? I forgot.

Mrs. Kitsune might have been one of his favorites. I don't think he's sensing people who have awakened though, as at best Justin is only dreaming thus far. He might still be sensing magic, but awakenings wouldn't be it. I also don't think we can say he's immortal on what we have thus far, as his ears are non-pointy and he could still easily teach both Mrs. Kitsune and her daughter with a normal human life span.

Yes, yes. Those are his favorites.

Justin has potential? So he may be dreaming. Which means he has potential to awaken. Hmm...

A major hint was dropped like a ton of (subtle) bricks "recently".

I think I have found it....

Either that, or he's sensing the dog unnaturally peeing on that fire hydrant.

I think "A tonne of subtle bricks" actually describes EGS at least as well as "One big awkward moment". (A tonne (or "metric ton") is 1000 kilograms and weighs a little less than 36 pounds short of a long ton.)
And I think AFNB has it. (What does that stand for, anyways? :facepalm: I like your sig, by the way.)

Why do you think I put that in there?
