I believe the storyline now is pretty simple.
1-) After Aleta Sorceress was captured, there was a "Struggle for Power".
We got nothing else then Rita and Candit fighting each other the good old way, with a knife between them.
2-) The result of this struggle was showed at "The Price of the Fame".
The knife ended at Candit's back...
3-) Now, Rita is leading the Verore with her brutes by her side.
End of story so far.
