Circe's seems to be very amused by his reaction.
I think she is amused both a Kane's predictable escape as well as Ulysses dislike for Kane.
The "Hello" "Hi" beat is something these two like to do hahahaha.
Guess who started this tradition?
These guys! Check the whole scene if you don't believe.
When they say "history repeats itself".
So, she may not remember being Castalia, but she kept some habits. Strong habits die hard.
Like getting Circe to read for her (like she used to do with Callista and Kane) because she cannot see that well?
How can she be the White Witch - an ideal, a project of perfection - if she cannot see?
Remember how Kane cannot bring in things that do not belong to him but he can bring presents... so what was in this box?
The pages are blank.
We discovered one of Gemma's little secret.
It's the same rules you apply when you travel - look busy (read a book on a plane) and nobody will bother you.
Item n.2: Kane's sketchbook.
With "abundant" pictures of Castalia's bo... bones.
And remember kids, in art you don't draw "naked drawings" you draw "nudes".
Nude is not naked is something artist would always tell you. Because nude is a definition of a form of art, like still life (let's face it, life isn't still either hahaha). So What he is drawing is a nude, not a naked.
Apparently Circe agrees with him.
After this scene they walk down the galleries and see lots of painting of previous witches - for those of you familiar with my sketches... you may have recognized somebody else's portrait: Amelia.
Do you remember who Amelia is?
But Kane finds that the lady in white in the picture... looks exactly like his mom!
You remember this poor pretty girl, right? She is also, by the way, the reason why Kane prefers blondes, based on what Circe says afterwards.
Why is he so upset with the Balthasars and why is Circe defending him to the point of saying that he was a decent man before the Balthasars came into the pictures.
In this chapter there are 3 reincorportations from the special called "Circe": her defending Gilbert Sullivan (giving away her true identity), her true appearance (she is blonde, which would make her Kane's type too), and a reference to the previous generation of witches made by Castalia (when she says that her mom used to tell her stories of the witches).
BTW there is a typo here, I never managed to fix it.
The dates should say 1630 (not 1603).
This is the real Circe, seen from the back.
It's the guy Kane cannot hug.
One of the two Villy.
