Charles-Without-End, the leader of the original Crestfallen Coven, is depicted as having scrolling tats around his eyes. So is Valentine. I'm thinking that's probably not a coincidence. The statue of Charles-Without-End in the square is holding up his watch in the direction of Dead Betty's. Hmmm, I wonder if that watch had also been stopped at 5:00 and is now ticking. Anyway, the clock motif seems to be associated with Charles. This makes me suppose that he would be the witch who conjured the clocks, and makes me wonder if the house that Serenity's living in was originally the home of Charles-Without-End. 'Cos Valentine is mixed up in this thing somehow, and if he's CWE, then the clocks are his and he may have just started them again on purpose.
I get the impression that Serenity passed some sort of "test" in the eyes of Valentine on that day. He ran Stiletta into her like a crash-test dummy, specifically to force Sera to "fight for it!" I don't think he intended for Stiletta to actually win. Stiletta was deranged, insane, and I think Valentine took lethal advantage of her mental state to aim her at Sera. I think his entire purpose was to see whether Serenity had what it took to defeat her. Serenity faced her identity, took control of her dreams, defeated Stiletta, and laid claim to the town. Valentine, who is probably Charles-Without-End, saw this, and Charles-Without-End's clocks started again. Hmmmm.
What does it all mean?

(wow, neat idea on Sera's mansion being Charles's house back in the day. i hadn't even considered that possibility, but it seems very plausible!)

I don't know. It's hard to tell the difference even with regular snakes, and Bittercurve is a monstrous sea-serpent whose kind no one knows.
Now that I think about it, it probably doesn't matter to the story -- unless her species reproduces by partenogénesis (uh, is the English "parthenogenesis" or .... something else? I keep getting words wrong that look alike and mean something different, and I haven't actually heard someone say that in English). She's the only one, no?
