Someone on Tumblr noticed that, in the scene with Bo and Harbinger of Death Tamsin, you can see as Bo is hugging her that in the background, there's a piece of furniture (like a cabinet or refrigerator) with a heart drawn on it.
That seems pretty not-so-coincidental to me. "And I wonder...can you really know yourself without memory? I mean, can you really know what you want?" - Bo Dennis, "Of All the Gin Joints"
Alright, I know you're like administrator of brazenwood or something and I don't want to subscribe for now, but I found this thing and I thought you could share it with the community for me... See I saw the post about 4x04 that said there was a heart drawn when Valkubus hugged. So i watched the ep back and i saw something else, just after, when the camera focuses on Bo in the background there is runic signs. You can translate them by L and H... Dunno what it really means but yeah... -M-
Thoughts, anyone? Tbh I didn't even notice the symbols but now I have to go back and obsessively watch this scene again. :P Bo: "I'm alright, but I'm not perfect." Tamsin: "Yes, you are. To me, you are."
Well, I've finally signed in now so hello everyone
So about my little discovery this what i'm talking about:
All the other signs you will see on the walls (there is actually a lot of them) are old alchemists signs, seeing as it is Massimo's place, it makes sense
BUT Those two symbols aren't the same. They're symbols of the runic alphabet which is the one used by scandinavians and in norse mythology. Interesting, because it could be related to Tamsin then
In this alphabet the first symbol is an L and the second is an H so... Not really meaningful right?
So I've dug up a little bit more this way and in the symbols dictionnary, here's what i've found:
The L is : A rune from the earliest runic alphabet. It was most probably called logr, meaning onion, or water, stream, or sea.
The H is: A rune from the earliest Nordic runic alphabet with the name hagel, meaning hail. It is associated with accidents and misfortune, and with forces of nature which create interruption or cessations.
In Norse mythology, Ragnarök (UK/ˈrɑːɡnəˌrɒk/,US/ˈræɡnəˌrɒk/,) is a series of future events, including a great battle foretold to ultimately result in the death of a number of major figures (including the godsOdin, Thor, Týr, Freyr, Heimdallr, and Loki), the occurrence of various natural disasters, and the subsequent submersion of the world in water. Afterward, the world will resurface anew and fertile, the surviving and returning gods will meet, and the world will be repopulated by two human survivors. Ragnarök is an important event in the Norse canon, and has been the subject of scholarly discourse and theory.
"...the occurrence of various natural disasters, and the subsequent submersion of the world in water"
Hmm... Bo: "I'm alright, but I'm not perfect." Tamsin: "Yes, you are. To me, you are."
So ... The Apocalypse... Right... So that's not giving me tamxiety at all... Apparently it involves major figures dying but... Valkyries aren't major right ?
Also something really bothers me, why putting it in Massimo's place? Like does he have something to do with Norse mythology? His high interest in Tamsin's hair and knowledge about Valkyries in general (that wings means last life for exemple) seems to show that he's more involved in that story than it looks and that he'll probably come back but we already kinda knew that....
The first symbol I see looks kind of like an F but with bends in the "arms": os-o. "Mouth"
Second symbol looks like an angular R: rad-r. "Ride"
The third symbol looks like an upside down Y: cen-c. "Torch"
The fourth symbol looks like an upside down angled L: lagu-l. "Lake"
The fifth symbol looks kind of like an H: haegl-h. "hail"

Bo attacked him only moments before and sucked chi from him. Had he been wearing the twig, theoretically something should have kept her from taking any of his life force.

Look at how the first character, the F with the bends in the "arms" is translated to "god"...decidedly different than "mouth". lol
god, ride(riding/journey), torch, lake, hail. This seems to support your all's theory about this being about Ragnarok or some sort of catastrophic event. "And I wonder...can you really know yourself without memory? I mean, can you really know what you want?" - Bo Dennis, "Of All the Gin Joints"
