A laying down of law
In the initial draft of this arc Amanda was putting up the sweet and innocent act to the adults faces while being a royal shit to Selkie in secret. I chose not to pursue that because I don't want to create a narrative where Amanda is portrayed as some master manipulator or prescient mastermind. She's not above using the batted-eyelashes don't get me wrong, but I feel a route like that leans a bit too one-dimensional.
