The character is never referenced outside of Lemony's letter to them - not dissimilarly to Brett Helquist, whose only other appearance is in a letter he ostensibly wrote in the U.A. For that reason, I consider Lemony's Kind Editor to be the series' real-life editor, Sue Rich.
Well, Snicket's second-to-last hope that the tale of the Baudelaire orphans would be told to the general public was a group of cheesemakers, so I think it may be fair to say the editor is a fictional character as well. I don't have any theories about who this is yet. Is Beatrice II an editor?
I went to look for Sue Rich in the list of Heimlich Hospital surgical ward patients, but I was surprised not to find her. I thought that list contained everyone connected to the series behind the scenes?
Faith is being sure about what we hope for, being convinced about things we do not see. Hebrews 11:1 For God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16
I don't think that fits, tempting as it is; I recall word of certain hints that the last few books have not yet taken place when Snicket begins writing the first few. (And now the Netflixverse has instead put forward the alternative idea that he started immediately after the Hotel Denouement fire as atonement for failing to prevent the whole situations by driving the Baudelaires away.)
