:::::::Gotcha. It's possible, but really, you can just about set your watch by HT's patterns and story structure. Any replacement will almost certainly be from among the secondary characters already introduced. [[User:TR|TR]] 21:23, August 4, 2010 (UTC)

::::::::Well HT did have Vera take over for part of McGill's scene at the one point, when she and her boss were talking about how he was her meal ticket. We've had guest POVs before, sometimes playing off of a scene by a regular POV directly before or after. I guess we've even had guest POVs interrupt someone's scene, but to shift to a different perspective ''within'' a scene . . . That's new. For HT, anyway; I've seen it in many novels by other authors. Among AH writers, I think, only Tsouras. (Which reminds me, I have to read ''A Rainbow of Blood'' . . . some day. But they're charging so much for it online, and no bookstore or library is likely to stock it.) So he's broken one mold, or at least cracked it.
 
 
::::::::That being said, I'm sure you're right about the POV reassignment. And I certainly hope you are; we need ''two'' pairs of eyes in boring-ass Spain like we need holes in our heads. (You know what especially annoys me, by the way? When two POVs link up and ''both'' of them use their scenes to show us the same sort of thing. Carsten and Junior had been the most recent example before Weinberg and Delgadillo got to be such buddies, I believe.) [[User:Turtle Fan|Turtle Fan]] 21:49, August 4, 2010 (UTC)
 
   
 
:::I think a more likely scenario is the Pomeroy to Pound switch. Again, given HT patterns, it will probably be someone we've already met in a secondary role. That could give us Weinberg's former running buddy, or Jenkins perhaps.
