The proceedings in Catch provide hope that the Stain/Curse/-A- juggernaut may decide to put some pressure on IT after mopping up Catch. If IT is forced to fight on 2 fronts, we will likely see the war in Fountain shift into overdrive.
I am interested to see if -A- decide to keep pressing Init. completely out of nullsec. I doubt -A- want to control Immensea and Teneferis, but they may have allies looking for more space. Initiative is certainly not providing IT with support in Fountain at this point. I think -A-'s strategy of falling back and then hitting hard after revitalization has payed off well. I am really interested in how -A- views IT's assistance in taking over Catch several months ago. Payback can be a bitch.
