Harry is going to have to come clean about that as well, and if he throws in that Freydis offered him a threesome with Murphy, the grinding of Carlos teeth will be audible, remember they think he has been with Lara.

But maybe fighting against giants should be an ideal opportunity for Carlos to gain her respect and that is what is really needed for a relation with Freydis.

The White Council know about Demonreach, only the GateKeeper, Listens and Eb know he is The Warden of Demonreach.
The Merlin knows. See Eb's journal entry Harry reads in TC.

Knows about Demonreach or Demonreach and Harry? I doubt the latter.

And yes a good showing against Grendlekin would go a long way with Freydis, however if the Grendlekin have brought their female kin, Carlos had better watch out, they can smell a virgin.

In Battle Ground Harry will almost certainly have to come clean about some of the secrets he holds, just to assure even those who are his supporters on the White Council, and some will be obvious from the way he conducts his defence of Chicago.

Harry loves being mysterious and secretive, “wizard crack”, but is Harry going to have to go cold Turkey and how far?

I'm not really sure Harry will need to pony up on his secrets to survive. The whole Game is now set to change. With the masquerade in tatters, the political calculations of his value will shift dramatically. Particularly if Harry very publicly engages Ethniu and succeeds, saving Chicago. Given that subtlety is not exactly his normal forte, that seems a reasonable conclusion to make.

He would be a public celebrity hero, and THE face of the White Council to a newly awakened mortal humanity. Kicking him out then would be a colossal stupid move in the uncertain ground the Supernatural scene would find themselves in.

Harry and Demonreach. Eb talks about Harry and Demonreach, how "we" try to keep Harry out of trouble to no effect, how the Gatekeeper thinks telling Harry about what's really going on with Demonreach would be useless, and how the Merlin thinks they should put Harry under immediate surveillance.

That doesn’t mean the Merlin knows about Harry and Demonreach, the Merlin wants Harry under surveillance which would show him spending considerable time there, meaning he might guess. Harry has inadvertently become the Merlin’s worst political opponent attracting his ire. None of the three Senior Council members are likely to discuss Demonreach with the Merlin, but he would discuss Harry with them.

Harry knows the true nature of Demonreach and he didn’t care. I am not sure they realise or appreciate Harry knows that Demonreach is Supernatural Supermax and that he has fully realised its resources beyond that of a mere sanctum, nor are they aware of his arsenal. They will see him use two major supernatural artifacts and the full power of Demonreach in Battle Ground, realising both their worst fears and hopes at the same time.

I read Eb's journal entry as the Merlin wants Harry under surveillance because he's the Warden. It doesn't say it explicitly, but that's how I read it.

I do believe that most of the Senior Council doesn't really know what's going on with Demonreach based on what the Gatekeeper tells Harry about how the Council "knows only as much about our roles as it needs to-and that isn't much." Now he specifically says "the Council" and not "Senior Council," so they might know everything, but I doubt it.

Jim has given himself wiggle room, so he isn’t nailed down on it, letting the reader (literally) interpret things. The Merlin thinks Harry is up to no good, and has been embarrassed by him several times already.

This has been considered, but I don’t think she would be very gentle with him.

To be fair, neither was Molly, and he survived that...

And you think he could take another episode like that? It might kill him.

You just have to create the right ambiance for a date with Freydis. First you slaughter a dozen giants together and then you make out on the field of slaughter while the crows are feasting.

For extra atmosphere you can add a nice audible illusion. https://youtu.be/P73Z6291Pt8

You forgot the liberal inbibing of mead, a great sage once said “candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker”.

The mead would be for Carlos, not Freydis.
