Remember how everyone went down on their knees when Agatha shouted it in the theater?Remember how Gil stopped dying and started getting better when Agatha ordered him to?
Gil fought back without a second thought when Agatha insisted they shouldn't do the Si Vales. While it's not outright refusing a command, there's also no sign of unnatural obedience to The Mistress in this sequence...or anywhere. His behavior doesn't seem to trump normal affection plus the fact that they're more or less in agreement for the most part.
... there's also no sign of unnatural obedience to The Mistress in this sequence...or anywhere.Well, except for that Si Vales Valeo command. I had thought it was there for Rule of Cool and Rule of Funny, but it does fit the hypothesis.
Which Si Vales Valeo command. I think I need you to refine further to be sure we're on the same page.
Probably the one where she ordered Gil to live.
