Only if Eb is getting busy, which would be pretty good at his age!

With it as overpowered as it was, could the bloodline curse at CI have had a time factor as well?  Meaning maybe they were targeting the actual merlin, not just his decedents.
At times I wish I had a clone, but then I realize, I could never live with that a-hole.

Are you suggesting that it could possibly reach back in time to kill Merlin? If so, none of the other people Harry talks to (Mab, Odin, Lea, Uriel) realize it or decide to mention that factoid to Harry.

Isn't Merlin stated to be still kinda sorta alive anyway? Also, isn't Harry being related to him entirely speculation?

I think the answer to both is yes. The legend says that Merlin was tricked, maybe, into a deep sleep. And, Harry's ancestry is a popular theme due to the actions of Eb and Maggie Sr and how they have impacted Harry.

And supported by Eb's relation to Harry and his possession of the journals.

Considering the 'squishy' word usage... I think Maybe he's in his own pocket of time and space at DR keeping it running as it's source of power, but unable to leave because of it. He's out in a different way for a similar reasoning..

Which assumes that there's only ever a parent-child lineage from Merlin to Eb, and while 100% of Eb's mentees have been his family, he's the only one we see who has a blood relation between student and teacher.

Merlin was said to use time magic, or it was inferred, so if McCoy is his descendants, it might mean at somepoint Merlin could be vulnerable to the curse.

I still think Eb and Harry were the targets since Ortega took it real personal about her husband.

Revenge against Harry for starting the war and against Eb for killing her husband (with the side benefit of taking out the Blackstaff) is enough of a reason for the Duchess to have suggested using the bloodline curse. To have the bloodline curse go any farther or target anyone else means that either the Duchess is involved in the Black Council or being manipulated by the Black Council to further their goals.

What is the general consensus regarding the Black Council and Nemesis? Are they one and the same? Are they different? Are they collaborating?
