Bohemian Gothic Tarot - Eight of Wands

Despite the efforts of the demon/monster in the Seven of Wands to ward them off, the angry villagers have set fire to the castle and now we see the sky darkened with smoke, the clouds reflecting the red glow of the fire that sweeps through the castle and sets its gargoyles writhing in fright.

That's how I looked at it after considering the card as part of a story timeline with the cards preceding and following it. When I first looked at it, however, my thought was, "That's it? Some red clouds and a couple of statues?"

I still have trouble seeing "swift action" from this card, but I can now see it as "things coming to a head."

What do you all think?
