Ahahahah oh nooooo what if their plan was to zap the booger on the Anja shield but Kat's robo-illumination project's weakened it somehow so instead of the satisfying splat they were expecting these hooligans just yeeted a bolt of pure plasma shenanigans right through their own safety bubble. And Coyote's like "ah man wow y'all coulda def killed me there sucks ya blew it oh well guess I'll go wreak havoc".
I don't really expect a plot twist quite that goofy but my goodness I'd be so on board.
Another thought: Maybe the "got it" part is a call back to this page, where Zimmy explains the ether's inscrutability. Perhaps Coyote is impressed that the Court, of all people, actually nearly grasped the 'it just does' nature of the ether for once?
This is how I am reading Coyote's gleeful statement. He LOVES to be surprised because nothing ever surprises him. I think that is why he loves Annie so much, as has been postulated before.
"This gentle calm and quiet is the twilight of an era.
I will probably watch the passing of this twilight age."
