"...so I think the evidence I needed to be looking at wasn't just whether you could have lied better to me, but whether you were doing other things that would have been really obviously working cross-purposes or shooting yourselves in the foot if you knew the Silmaril would be here and wanted to get it to destroy the world. One, even if you didn't know exactly where the Silmaril was going to surface, you let a crow fly off with your car keys. Two, you didn't start scanning people's minds until you were prompted by trying to find the thing that killed Azalea and Connor, the timing there was convenient enough that it was really unlikely to have been a coincidence. Three, not only did you keep telling me to try to end the nightmares - which would clearly have been somehow integral to whatever evil plot you guys had going on, the timing there is again too convenient for it to be a random occurrence - you also did in fact send Wishbone to the hospital to help me do it, when you could have misdirected him and told me that something had eaten him on the way or something. And four - this is a different category, not an error you would've made - by the time the Silmaril appeared I had already seen two things that were definitely your nightmares, and I feel like the sort of being that was faking all along so he could destroy the world would not be horrified by the thought of running over crows or having his students commit suicide on him. It's still at that point technically possible for you to be lying and somehow magically faking your nightmares, but it's an awful lot of times to shoot yourselves in the foot."
