True enough, when thought about rationally. It still feels too much like its catering to the massive number of Jerry's fans, but makes sense, I suppose. He definitely seemed much more rational this season once Zero's identity was exposed, as opposed to last season's mad screams of "ZERO!" as he was worked on. The only thing I really don't buy is the level of loyalty to Marianne that Jeremiah supposedly bears, but even that makes a sense because of the previous Britannians we've seen to have such great respect for her (Cornelia, mainly.).
Well, according to the "Episode 4.33" of R1 (aka picture drama 5), entire Jeremiah's life is based upon what happened to Marianne.
