Idea for the AROFAM separation scene: Caleb’s grip gets looser and looser on Belos, and he desperately grabs a piece of his fabric. He begs Philip to not let go, but Philip parallels King’s goodbye; Caleb WILL have to let him go again to keep everyone else safe, but he’s so happy he got to have a big brother and a family again. He apologizes, tells Caleb to say goodbye to Hunter for him, pulls out THE knife…and slices the fabric. Separating them just as permanently as the original timeline.
I think pulling out THE knife would cause a LOT of questions. Though atm, I am veering towards fluff. I plan on some cute Crimson and kid Luz stuff.
one time king didn’t let go and one time when he did.

This is Hunter’s face when he saw The Collector beating up Belos with a flick of his finger.
I can’t imagine how Hunter must have felt. He’s seen this wild, inhuman version of Belos numerous times. He’s seen how Belos can get, how badly he can outburst. I wouldn’t be surprised if Belos had used this form to harm or terrify Hunter.
And then to see this entity beat this form that easily. Hunter is seeing how powerless Belos truly is, when he is still coming to terms with the fact that Belos had lied to him.
The lone sob of Gus in the rain as they all come to terms with what's happened will haunt me until the hiatus is over
Don't think about
don't think about Alador not knowing where any of his kids are
don't think about Edric and Emira gripping onto each other as their world falls apart around them with no idea where the rest of their family is, if they're even safe
don't think about the fact they might not even be together
don't think about Darius feeling the pain of the draining spell but all he can think about is the sixteen-year-old kid he cares about despite himself feeling the same pain
don't think about all the other children with coven sigils, in so so much pain as the man everyone trusts betrays them
don't think of Gus' dad learning no one knows where his twelve-year-old son is
don't think of people running for cover as their world falls apart and rebuilds around them
don't think about the ones who couldn't get away in time
don't think of King, so young and so scared, alone with the collector
don't think about Willow's dads patiently waiting for their daughter to come home and their bone-deep grief when she doesn't
don't think about the twins screaming and wailing when Alador tells them he doesn't know where Amity is and the last time he saw her, she was going to fight Belos, the most dangerous man on the Isle
don't think about Eda realizing that despite her best efforts in the end she couldn't protect either of her kids
don't think about Eda reuniting with Lilith and both of their faces falling realizing the other doesn't have the kids
don't think about Camila opening the doors and being so relieved to see her daughter but so worried when she sees how tired and sad all the kids huddled together at her front door are
don't think about the kids quietly but surely patching each other up, older and much more exhausted than they should be
don't think about the fact none of them are going to be to get a good night's sleep for a while
don't think about the kids huddled together mourning people that may be alive because they just don't know
King and Luz are so clearly Eda’s kids in that they were 100% prepared to lie to and con the hell out of these big bads. Luz’s offer to be Belos’s modern day guide as a ploy to brand him. King’s frankly VERY impressive narrative of this super fun “Owl House” game so the Collector would want to save everyone. These kids learned to lie from the best and holy shit they succeeded.
