Actually, I liked that theory just fine.  We get so little information 
on the return of Seawrack, though, that it's tough to hang a theory 
on it.  More questions raised than answered.  As I was (re)reading 
through the Afterword, I was struck by Daisy's description of 

"Lovely though Seawrack was, with her snowy skin, blue eyes and 
fair hair, there was something animal about her.  It seemed clear to 
me that she trusted only "Father," and would have put her long 
knife into any other person as readily as I would gut a fish."

If Seawrack is possessed by a god at this point, doesn't it sound 
more like Surging Scylla than Comely Kypris?  Thin evidence 
indeed, I admit, but interesting, given the Urth Scylla-Whorl Scylla-
Mother connection (whatever THAT actually is...).
