Wizard 43 + theories

So after watching the latest episode of Wizard it finally hit me what could really be going on here.

They seem to be all but confirming the whole "Wiseman is the White Wizard" thing. I mean, Sora led them to Wiseman's hideout and the White Wizard was there, right? At the very least they're in league with each other, and at best they're actually the same person. So if that's the case... what if the reason they've actually been driving Gates to despair this whole time is not to create Phantoms, but to create more wizards? They're created using the same methods, after all. It seems so obvious in hindsight and I'm baffled I never thought of it before. It would explain why they've never actually turned anyone into a Phantom on-screen-- that's not their actual goal. And for the ones where Haruto goes into their underworld and fights off their Phantom for them? Well, if they can't fight the thing off on their own, then there's no use for them, right? (I still think the Phantoms are being lazy with not tracking old Gates down, but TV show logic.)

And with the revelation that the White Wizard is Koyomi's father, I think it makes sense that whatever the hell he's actually trying to accomplish, he's somehow doing it for her. That's what I'd guess at this point. I'm just not sure exactly WHAT he's trying to accomplish (I'd assume something to do with her status as an empty shell) or how it involves the Philosopher's Stone. Need more details on that. But I feel like I'm almost-- not quite, but almost-- on the same page as Sora here, and I like it.
