  • From observing Faith's head, the cut is clean, so that absolutely rules out the knife. You don't cut a head with one single, clean blow, using a knife : you would have to saw your way through the flesh, leaving multiple cuts and a much less clean work.

    Unless the knife is magic of course and cuts through flesh like butter.

  • The Vorpal Blade is shown in the book of symbols as well. If you flip backward, it's on the first page, I belive. That definitely made me think that they had a reason for showing it.

  • I doubt the Vorpal Blade is it. The mention was just a cheeky comic mention.

    The Woodsman's Axe is my guess for the murder weapon at the moment. We don't see the Woodsman with it when he's stumbling down the street or at the bar, its a magical and very sharp axe and I think that's what the Tweedle brothers were looking for.

    • Not sure what I think. I don't have any official opinion on who the killer is or what the weapon was yet. Hard to rule much out with so little evidence given by the end of Episode 1. I did think it was interesting that they had the drawing of the Vorpal Blade in the book at all. In a way it also has a connection to the Tweedles, since it does come from Carroll's writings, just like they do. But maybe I'm reaching. ;)

      I also thought it was interesting that they made it a point to say that the Woodsman's Axe was blessed. Since that's not actually ever mentioned in folklore that I'm aware of, I'm guessing there's a reason why the writers added that detail. It may come up again later.

      • well the ax maybe it but not in the hands of the woodsman Lawrence body can be found alive if you go to him first and there maybe be some exert thing to do but the fact the choice say what happen to Lawrence and made it out with him alive and i thing Excalibur is in the canes office

  • I thought about Bluebeard "the bride killer" as the murderer... as for a weapon you can't rule out the obvious magical Ax of the woodsman, since it vanishes off the street and Woody didn't have it a trip trap... Maybe the game is going to play into a Headless Horseman kinda of tale with an unseen Horseman ax... maybe. That would tie in Crain as being involved, but I don't think he's the type of character to get his hands dirty... the killings would have to be committed by someone else...

  • I'm leaning towards the knife at Lawrence's apartment since it is one of the few weapons that were moved to stage the scene and it does look magical. Bluebeard has a ton of magical weapons which would make him suspect #1 or 2. Any blade in the books which are in the Business Office "Crane's office". Woody's ax is also possible and it looks like Woody found his ax if you went after Dee.

  • I don't see how the Headless Horseman could be involved. I understand that he decapitated heads, but didn't he usually collect them?

  • Never saw or read the headless horsemen, just want to point out a pointless detail that so far the victims r females...

  • You can't jus checkout these magical artifacts such as the Vorpal blade from the Fabletown vaults, there are laws prohibiting the use of these weapons, and only the Witches Council or those in administration such as the Deputy Mayor have access or have even studied how to wield them.
