His faces in those panels, seem odd. Also we've yet to get a glimpse back to the MK to see how things look on that side. To me this is looking increasingly like we're dealing with Imposter!Jack. That said not much else going on in this update, nothing unexpected certainly.
As for how will Parson get out, I feel it might involve Ace in some way. Easiest way to do it would be to fly above the flames, but but Parson is too big, perhaps there is some way for him to lose his "heavy" status.
Next update will probably be back in the MK for some resolution there. The question is: Who would that be if not Jack? Charlie could have supplied enough of that information from hacking the eyebooks. A simple foolamancy veil would work if there was another caster the same general shape and size as Jack. If it was another caster disguised as Jack, that would maintain the decree that Parson would take no GK casters with him.
Jojo: This could be the gaff that he was planning, changed on the fly by Charlie's 'request'.
Isaac: He could keep a very close eye on Parson to ensure that he does indeed return for his debriefing with tGMtTA.
Wanda: Possibly the best long-term strategic option, but it would violate the decree of no GK casters.
Sizemore: The best immediate strategic option to deal with the Inferno.
New caster: Some unnamed new caster that wants to side with GK?
Predictamancer: They all know this will be a changing point, so one of them could want to witness it first-hand. Or they have predicted that they would be there.
Charlie: Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. And what better place to launch an attack against your greatest foe than to disguise yourself as one of his most trusted allies and in a place where he doesn't have a lot of time to analyze the subtle nuances that would give away your disguise. Pull a dagger out of the cane, and back-stabbitty stabbing time.
Jack: It really is just Jack, and he is full of cunning, sneakiness, and awesome sauce, as well as a master of distraction.
