I'll admit, by this point in the book I was convinced that Dove was going to somehow become the Queen. So the only thing that surprised me was how she left, not that she did. (I was actually convinced she was going to die because of all her ranting) Dove just fit the role so much better than Sarai who was, honestly, all talk that put everyone in danger and no action to make things better. So when she left...I may have done a little happy dance because as much as I do love Sarai, Dove is my favorite and just...she's amazing!
On top of that we're shown in this chapter that Nuritin KNOWS how popular Sarai is with the Raka. She's not telling Sarai to stop because "we can't talk about these things, it makes people uncomfortable" or "You can't say that it's rude!" she's telling her to stop because if she doesn't she's going to get herself, and possibly the whole family, KILLED! And considering that the rebellion's leadership (both of them actually) IS her house hold...yea if the regents are feeling particularly violent Sarai's words, her "so take that" comment, could have just ended the Raka's hopes for freedom by being so reckless. That and it makes the regents look closer at their family in general. Because if Sarai feels comfortable saying something like this in the Rittivon seat of power, what must her home life and family be like? Which could uncover not only the Raka conspiracy but the Luarin one as well. Honest to god don't see this as Nuritin trying to "silence her rudeness" but trying to save Sarai, and the family as a whole, from her reactionary rashness.

again, this is me.
I know some people see things differently and I'm not saying they can't have their own interpretations of the story, but this is mine.
