Indexer Notes

The boys deliver the fish to the Nodarr Witch, who reveals that she kidnapped it to draw the Blind Wizard King to her and admit her long-denied love for him before she dies. Learning from the blabbermouth fish that the Post Brothers killed her love, she readies to kill them and the Brothers get ready to kill her, but then Russ figures out that that was her plan all along. Huffily deciding that they don't kill for free (for fun, maybe but not for free) The Post Brothers shift out for Bugtown.
