You guys figure out the plan. My head hurts. Someone hit me with a mace.
If I were going to the windows to bet:
1. Grund is Harley Quinn, but was once Dr. Fate. Converted Night One.
2. theohall is The Riddler
3. Austin is Two Face
4. Isgrimnur is the Joker.
I just re-read the entire thread. The one thing I never understood was why the Badguys made the play they did. Now I think I see what happened. What they planned:
They know that theohall is close to being hung, and weariness with the length of Day 2 plays a major factor. Because of his conversion, and because of the nature of Two Face's passive ability, they see a path to victory that only exists if Batman is not an active role in the game. theohall is chosen to fly that trial balloon and to see if anyone counterclaims him. If they do, then a real Bats would step forward, mention that there's been a conversion, and totally refute theohall's hero count (which he didn't give for fear of being totally outed from the getgo.) No Batman stepped forward to counterclaim. Grundbegriff rolled the dice then, and came out as Dr. Fate, his actual beginning role. He backed up theohall's claim of Batman, and threw his seal of Goodness on Austin, knowing that there wouldn't be a Batman around to detect Two Face.
Even more beautiful: the villains likely believed that there was a good possibility of Dr. Fate as the only scanning player on Team Goodguy. theo as Riddler may have asked the question of Lagom Lite: "Is Lagom Lite Wonder Woman?" and gotten a negatory as an answer. Also possible: Grund's Night One scan was Lagom, and Grund knew Lagom was Elongated Man. Knowing that he evades the first kill, they put him on the back burner, but knew when Lagom listed Wonder Woman as one of the four possible roles he played that Metal Bra wasn't one of them. So...they think there's a good chance that Team Good is now flying without a scanner. You have theohall reveal as Batman. No one counterclaims. My goodness! Now you have Grundbegriff verify him, and then send a word to Unagi or Remus or El Guapo or whomever to prove himself as Dr. Fate. Uncontested Batman theohall says "no converts!" so who are we to gainsay. Meanwhile, Austin Two Face under the radar, a backup plan just in case Wonder Woman is around and she scans Grund or theohall before they can get to her.
What they didn't foresee was that theohall had already been scanned. bb2112 holding keeping that scan result under his cape ruined the plan and dealt their path to victory a severe setback.
Austin has to go gallows dancing. Isgrimnur too.
