Yes, I've never quite understood this. I think this is the deus ex machina
in Hexwood, and the Wood is only a plot point! OTOH, we don't know that she
wouldn't have remembered for herself that she had been through this before,
given a bit more time- listening to the message made her go into action.
Presumably the previous time she didn't *do* anything excpet record the
message, or everything would have been sorted out that time! But she was
*beginning* to break free, and the message allowed it to really happen the
next time.
