>>93012627>How could he have known about that?
We don't know, yet. He shouldn't know about the Whispering Spell at all considering it's treated like a "state secret" passed from Queen to Queen with the wand, but he does, and clearly knew its function because he specifically told Star to use it to destroy the wand.>If he had, he probably would have made a thicker glass box and told Star to stand in it and then use the Whispering Spell.
You're assuming he wanted Star dead. If he did, it would have been as simple as not opening the box at all.
But he did open the box, knowing Star would go to Marco and take cover in it.
The purpose of the box was to protect Star (and Marco) from the Whispering Spell, which both she and Toffee knew would obliterate the castle and everyone in it.>>93015880>Toffee's eyes get wide in surprise when the wand first starts to explode
And right before and after, he's looking at it like a smug motherfucker. He even says "It's been a pleasure" to Ludo's goons, a classic "I have won and you are already dead" villain line. Maybe the light show caught him off guard, or he was just in awe, the expression is pretty hard to read even if he wasn't off-model.
