Looks like Griff's still next to the Pope Pontiff-mobile, possibly still en-route to Wyndham?

Yup, seems about right. I wonder what dream the title is referring to.

To stem the inevitable question: The episode is not due out this week. It's scheduled to arrive Nov. 9. We just happened to get an extra-early preview this time around.

I wonder what dream the title is referring to.
My guess, based on the phrasing, is its something Sonia may have said to Griff.  Possibly this:

"You'll get a hideous scar on your lovely face from a bearded man in his death throes."

A Hideous Scar, eh.  Can't say it's not deserved, but I don't want anything to happen to that pretty face either.  I'm torn.

Yeah, it coming from Sonia seems to be the most logical assumption. Otherwise it could only be a result of Griffith's power, and I wonder who would be having the dream then. In any case I think it'll be very interesting. I'm curious about how far in the future we'll see... The battle against Ganishka? Griffith's coronation? His rule? His demise? :griff:

Cool preview, can't wait 'til next week.

Something involving Guts, maybe?

Miura's artwork is absolutely incredible.  Griffith looks so beautiful in this preview.

"You'll get a hideous scar on your lovely face from a bearded man in his death throes."

I hope it's not that enigmatic.  :ganishka:

I think you hit the nail on the head. Especially with the preview focusing on a close up Griffith. This could be the first indication of Griffith's facade being realized. He may be wearing those heavenly white wings now, but we all know it'll be on wings of deepest black that he'll show his true nature.(Sorry, I've been wanting to use that ever since playing FFXII :().

But in all seriousness, It's making me anxious for this episode, we all know Ganishka's cooked, so the most logical assumption as aaz pointed out would be that the foretelling dream would take place sometime in the aftermath of Ganishka's defeat, either revealing the citizens being forced with the reality of Griffith's rule, or his fall. I doubt it'll have anything to do with Guts unless it's the latter, which he'll most certainly play a big part in.

Fingers crossed that the next break Miura takes is after the conflict with Ganishka is put to rest.

If it's Sonia that's having the dream, she may get a glimpse of how dark Griffith's rule will be.  Her infatuation and admiration of him may change a bit once she sees what he really is. :griff:

One can only hope. :guts:

Gorgeous preview, I never tire of how subtly Miura can show hints of an individuals dubious intentions with the simplest thing. Looks to me like he was getting a really good line through when he was channeling Gustav Dore for this preview too.

The eyes! HE HAD SUCH TERRIBLE EYES!

Moving along, I'm guessing like anyone the "dream" is a foreshadowing of Griffith's coronation, I can't tell (my foresight has been blocked by one page! MADDENING) if its mentioning Sonia or Griffith. Maybe now the stack of bodies is now right at the dream window to his castle homestead, filled up now with the Hawks post-sacrifice yet missing "two" steps?

Nah, doubtful on that note...But I'm interested none the less.

I might be making myself a candidate for the dunce cap; But didn't the Pontiff himself have a dream or vision earlier? I was also under the impression that Sonia seems to give her visions as Prophecy, rather then saying: "I have a dream . . ." Although that might not be relevant to the title.

Indeed, why not. Something dark and dangerous rising beyond the seas! :beast:

Yes, he did. The Hawk of Light appeared to him in a dream, which is why I said "Otherwise it could only be a result of Griffith's power, and I wonder who would be having the dream then."

Well it's not like she usually gets her visions from dreams anyway, as far as we know (the inner mechanisms of her power still being completely unknown to us). But in this specific case, she could have a precognitive dream, it'd fit her abilities.
