In Episode 12 of Silver Buckshot,Dinner for Three, Flavia and Frank encounter Miss Emma Carlson, an elderly cousin of Flavia’s. She may become their greatest challenge yet: a chaperone!
Sample line: At dinner, Frank mentions that, even when he was small, his big sister Louisa would take him on adventures, explaining: “We’d sneak into vampires’ houses during the daytime and play tricks on them, like leaving notes hinting we were Jehovah’s Witnesses and promising to return after dark.”

In Episode 10 of Silver Buckshot,Pistole Italiane, Flavia, still shaken from the attempt on her life, returns to her rooms in the company of a new set of guards, her boyfriend Frank, and Frank’s older sister Louisa, who thinks a mere princess isn’t good enough for her baby brother.
That sounds restful, right? Stripping and cleaning the Italian pistols plundered from the dead assassins fits right in with the rest of the action.

In Episode 9 of Silver Buckshot,Fifty-Dollar Bill, another attempt is made on Princess Flavia’s life when she and Frank are in the library. She survives because … but that would be telling. But I’ll note that her would-be assassins carried silenced pistols, which for library murders is only proper.
And, wait, doesn’t Flavia see the future? How could she let herself get caught like this? Is her talent unreliable?
