Actually, the fact that that crown didn't come off when she bounced off her recently gold-plated head, but DID come off easily and cleanly to Burk's hands is odd.
Also, Burk, you decided to go look for the "Evil Baron" instead of fighting the Evil Pirate Lady after you defeated Mo the Shifter (the annoying Earth Dude). You only have yourself to blame for not being able to fight her until you managed to defeat her.
I don't really find Mo all that down-to-earth; on the contrary, I find him rather repulsive.
the crown does appear to have avoided turning to gold in a way that the all-important amulet did not, so...
So they didn't hear the part about her recovering in an hour or so then? Good. :)
The Burk uses its superhuman bad-guy-punching-opportunity-detection. Regrettably, the egocentrism flaw it took to acquire this ability prevents it from realizing that others may be acting from ignorance. Truly a tragedy for the ages.
As ALL have noted from the start the crown is much more than a "simple" jewel.
I guess goldie an muttonator (sweet definition!) are missing something there....
So the Judge is too busy to get his manacles taken off, I guess.
Just to kill rampant speculation over a tiny insignificant detail:
The amulet on the crown didn't turn cause the crown is gold; and gold is generally not affected by magic.
Well. Glad you specified it was an amulet in the crown, and not a 'gem'.
But maybe the amulet in the crown is the eye of Burk's mother that traveled in time millions of years and got fossilized into a ruby.
This would explain why it did not turn to gold and why Burk is mysteriously attracted to the crown.
@ VIII Strength: When I called Mo an "Earth Dude", I was referring to his Earth Shifting Powers.
@Neoriceisgood: Oh, I realized that was likely the case. It's just that the fact that it didn't come off of her head when she bounced off of the crown itself is odd. Because gravity is still a thing that should have removed it.
