I totally agree with you :D she probably wanted to get ideas of how to endure having Lacey in her head :lol:
what a nightmare that might have been, she talks too much :lol:

I don't think I could live with Lacey in my head. Especially if she was an addition to the voices I already hear in my head.

Wanda was very self sacrificing. There is no logical reason for it ( she should be able to choose death, but for argument sake ) but if her two choices were:
1) free Mel and "live" with Lacey
2) Keep Mel trapped.

I wonder what she would have done. I think death might be preferable to having Lacey in my head. :D

It seems that they retained their moral fiber but they got a lot of personality from the body. I mean, the seeker sounded just like Lacey. She was just bitter, she was just like her. And Wanda ended up shy and giggly? I had a hard time imagining it. Maybe the seeker was nice and happy and normal living as a flower for 100 years.

the seeker to me was just as bad as jacob, and that is saying something!!!!! she annoyed me to no end, like my sister. if i were mel/wanda i wouldn't have thought twice about shooting her in the head. in fact i would've done it myself!!!!!! that was mean but who said i was nice???

I find the idea of being a seeker & Wanderer's Seeker both very creepy.

I wish there had been more about how Lacey was annoying in the Seeker's head; I thought that was a bit played down.

I don't think Wanda would have chosen to be in Lacey's head not just because she found her annoying but because she never would have chosen to be a "parasite" again. I think she was happy she got another chance to be human but I don't think she would've chosen it.

So I think that the seeker was probably a very nice person in the beginning of her life. After all she is a soul and they are naturally sweet and compassionate. I think having to deal with Lacy made her that way. Not only dealing with her but maybe some of Lacy's personality leaked into the seeker. No wonder she hated humans if the only referance she had of the species was Lacy. All her actions probably stemed from desperation of getting her out of her head.
