Are we about to see Pickle go thermonuclear? Will Canyon de Shelly become a glass puddle?

One hopes that she doesn't decide that this whole dimension has become a bummer which needs to be scrapped.

Nah - she'll just get the Demon Shepherd and her posse in to lay down the law to Shawna's Doubt...

I wonder if Castela can hear both sides of the conversation, or only Shawna's. She does have a rather amiable relationship with her aunt Monica's own Doubt, after all, so maybe she has an inside track on situations with other demons.

Assuming that that is Shawna's doubt demon, and isn't something totally different. Pixies can apparently make forms out of glamour, so it could be some sort of mental projection of Shawna's own making. Or it could be some weird other thing, seeing as how weird other things tend to appear in this comic quite frequently.

The Fae can make convincing illusions out of gossamer, other races making illusions other than personal disguise glamors is unsupported in the canon.

Shawna made some illusions or constructs near the start of the "Library Ghost Story" video, and I remember Paul making some drawings for sale featuring other pixies doing similar. They seem to be a bit limited, always being entirely of one colour (Shawna's constructs were purple-ish), but seeing as how the last couple of comics have been in black-and-white that doesn't tell us much.
