I don't think Maude has forgotten Arland.  I think she just has her priorities straight, which are, Helen first, then everyone else.  Even the man/vampire she loves.  AND... she knows that if Arland had been able to voice an opinion at that moment, he would have told her to run to her kid and deal with the repercussions later. 

If she didn't think Arland was the kind of man who would rather she leave him alone and unconscious when her daughter's life was in danger... she'd be back on Earth pestering Dina about Sean and plotting how to find their parents.

So, yes, she'll be rushing back there sometime in the near future... but first she needs Helen out of danger, and then she needs to ensure that rushing back to her rooms isn't going to trip some sort of trap or otherwise give the unknown antagonists a better position.  Because vampires are conniving creatures, but they aren't omniscient... so Arland being unconscious in Maude's rooms could be something unexpected that will give Maude and any allies she can vet quickly, an element of surprise.

I agree with your assesment of Maud's priorities. I'm just not certain she remembered to shut the door as she ran out.

Yes, she needs to see that Helen is healing and the infirmary is secure before heading back. But the infirmary is probably a very secure location so that all injured individuals are safe.
The room door? In their stronghold, I expect that leaving a door unlocked or ajar requires noticeable effort. I think it would have shut and secured by itself as she ran.

It wasn't, but not in the way I expected. Nor did I expect anything else here.

Part of me wants to say that they should have locked Arland IN, so he couldn't go wandering around half-awake and half-dressed if he had a contingency plan.

But the other part of me is just happy that Maude has someone she trusts to back her up.

Also the imagery of Arland stumbling in was pretty hilarious. Someone get that man a coffee!!! *snicker*

Fantastic read. I managed to practice some self control and stopped reading at 1 this morning. Finished it shortly after I got home. :-LOVE

I've also already began my reread. Did you see that foreshadowing with Thanos? the only a god can redirect bit? Also, my sister pointed out that the prophecy in Europe came true.
