"We leave in the morning, and only after we've set off down a path from which there is no going back will we figure out what our plan is."

Strategic genius. Who needs plans anyway? And remind me how Torginal managed to outwit her the first time?

I'm reading this again, and it strikes me just how much of an "anti-Torginal" she is. Obviously, that's how Merynna wants us to think of her: she is Torginal's arch rival and she is against anything he is for, just for the sake of opposing him. But she's really the opposite of Torginal in methods, too: he is a brilliant strategist and manipulator who is enacting a years- or even decades-long plan of world conquest, while she just sort of does whatever she thinks will irritate him the most on the spur of the moment.

On the flip side, neither Torginal nor Merynna seem to care much about their followers or any of the people around them (Athys excluded). He manipulates everyone for his own ends, while she carelessly attacked the party when they entered her lair, including Juda, and she professes not to care about people being killed by the ghosts. In that sense, Jynad is a much better antitheses for Torginal than Merynna can hope to be.
