Tbh if a kid fell from that height I wouldn't need a mysterious future-predicting device to know they probably died. Even if there wasn't a magical thing of death that kills everything trying to cross down there. But it's still horrifying that noone but Kat tried to check.
Well, yes. Believing that one of your people (who is also the daughter of one of your top researchers and of your former medium) likely died is no reason to just leave their battered body there to rot.
But I would also argue that in a world where the Ether can give people the ability to fly, among other things, one should never rule out that supernatural powers saved the day.
That the Court didn't want Annie as a medium due to her unruliness and heavy fraternization with the creatures of the Forest seems to be enough of an explanation without bringing Omega into it. But of course it could be that Omega influenced that decision.
I think the best evidence that Antimony isn't good for Omega is that she didn't become the Court medium back in Ch. 41. Come to think of it, Jonathan was hiding something about that even from Jones and both Jones and Coyote knew something was up.
Many other students caused many other kinds of trouble, I'm not seeing why any of these things would cause trouble with Omega's predictions. In fact, if one knows Annie's and Ysengrin's personalities I would argue these events were quite predictable! IMHO, unpredictability could only come in when Annie was supposed to die, but didn't thanks to time travel.
