By utilizing their dynamics but inverting the caution and restraint of chs. 24 and 26, ch. 25 makes shockingly obvious what deed lurks below the surface and shows it both dangerous and unnecessary. The reverie of ch. 25 provides a side-shadow of the action in its two framing episodes, rehearses representationally and bluntly what almost happens but which must ultimately be avoided. The king and kingship must not be destroyed by the most obvious opponent, the man most likely to gain from the death of the reigning king. The effect of the sideshadow is the presentation of a series of loopholes by which all characters involved can resist the worst of the possibilities that they might otherwise select in regard to the death of the king.
