I seriously doubt that Jillian has any interest in "freeing" the Gobwin Knob warlord whose strategies killed Ansom except maybe in freeing his head from his shoulders. The only side interested so far in capture of Parson is Charlie, and I hardly call what waits for him there "freedom."
Plus, if Parson switched sides, it would just be him versus a single side with no allies that had already just lost its capital. Where's the dramatic story in that? Without Parson, Wanda and her pliers aren't all THAT impressive.

Helping the next to TV strongest ally in the RCC 2 to win a decisive battle isn't something she needs to keep a secret.
Also it's unlikely, that the unknown caster is Vanna. A turnamancer can help turning captives, but that apparently takes time. it would make more sense for her to wait in the MK until GK's turn is over and she can safely do her work.
I agree with both of these points. Plus, the turnamancer is probably busy helping to pop and heir right now.
The new Wanda looks has GOT. TO. GO.
People just need to get over it. Wanda is very unlikely to stop in the middle of battle to change clothes. While we don't really know why Wanda changes clothes much more frequently than other units, I just doubt that she'll have opportunity to do so until camping at the end of this turn. That's probably a few months away in real world time.
