Let's talk about two characters from one of the worst episodes of the series  :hannah

In this Episode (Mysterious Visitors), they're rather annoying - like the whole episode was. But both seem to understand their craft. With some help of Hazel, they could've also improved it.

And then imagine some spy games, they could have staged in the third season.

So I must say: It's sadly given away potential.

I don't think they would survive for long in Darkhaven and even if they did Vervain would probably see through their act. I mean, that guy is so good at spy/traitor detecting that it almost borders on supernatural.  :blink

I still think, the writers could have implemented them well in the story (after rewriting the story a bit).

And btw, it would be nice, if Vervain would really have found his master in them. Since the third season was generally more serious than the seasons before, why not using Bluesky & Raincloud as some kind of agents?

Con-rabbits wouldn't have survived in Darkhaven, given they couldn't fight and always were bluffing at things.  I don't think much of them given I don't care for the episode they are in and the role they play.

They are fffffiller characters. :hawkbit2

Blue Sky doesn't really bother me much but Raincloud (The fat one) really rubbed me the wrong way.

I think we can all agree raincloud is the worst thing to come out of the entire Watership Down franchise.
