Jessamy Maddox talks in her sleep. This is shocking to probably no one, but as she tosses and turns murmuring her husband's name, who exactly is she seeing in her dreams? Gawain, or Wilk? If I were Wilk, I'd feel super awkward. Thank goodness there's a crying baby to distract him from her nighttime rumblings. And watching him rock the Maddox baby tugs at our heartstrings, however gently, because this should have been Wilk all along. A father. He was this close before Reeve Tell snatched that life away by murdering his wife. Sad. He still sees visions of Petra, which is sweet and everything, until the illusion falls and it's actually Jessamy he's making out with. Oops.
