One of the main reasons I'm taken by betiko's suggestion so far, is because the scum had 3 people that it would've been great to roleblock - Gustaf, Mets, Witt - if we assume that everyone's claims are true (which some aren't, obviously). Yet, betiko seems to have been roleblocked. To me, that's a pretty stupid risk for the scum to take. Even if they did want to take the chance of their kill target (according to Mets, being Gustaf) being protected, why didn't they roleblock Witt? Unless of course, betiko's pulling the wool over our eyes and didn't actually get roleblocked... But then where was the other scum action?
There is the very strong possibility that the scum are using this point for a long-term way to go under the town's scum radar. I mean, 6-1-2 doesn't present very high odds, and if one of them were already under suspicion, this would be a great way - with a huge risk that might pay off - to survive the next few lynches.
I'm not sure where I stand on the Mets/betiko debate - I was more inclined to think of betiko as scum prior to Night 4, but the outcome of it all has me very confused. To me, if betiko was indeed roleblocked, someone was very eager to prevent betiko from proving his town allegiance, and Mets comes up higher on my scumdar.
Another thing that has come up, is IB's claim of having 2 gifts and now being able to use Christmas magic. While reading through, my initial thoughts were that he, as scum, might be taking advantage of the fact that Witt was keeping quiet to claim that he got 2 gifts last night (mine and Witt's). But since Witt has confirmed this, it does leave the very tempting possibility of Christmas magic coming into play. After all, if IB is scum, he wouldn't be a gift doubler, and wouldn't be able to use his gift for Christmas magic, and probably not an action either, with all the actions the scum have already performed. So if IB doesn't use any Christmas magic tonight for the town, we can also know for sure he's scum. So... that might be a possible risk for us to take?
