  1. Listening to your podcast it occurred to me that Leta may be the secret double agent and Grindelwald would easily have lured her early as she is a brilliant-minded outcast. The “dissolving” of her body could just be an illusion created by GG to influence Credence or she was killed off to protect the story. The memory of her brother on the ship is real but the story of swapping Credence and Credence being a Dumbledore is fake. This would still suppport the theory of Ariana being the obscurus that is living inside him.
