Gold is my #1.

Then probably skyscraper and crown? Unless I missed something better.

Also, amusing that PASS is a word. We'll have to be careful to differentiate from guessing it vs, actually passing.

Gold

It could possibly be fire or bomb, but definitely crown over those two.

Good start!

I prefer skyscraper to fire or bomb (I can see fire maybe, but not bomb).

But maybe it's a bad choice. (I'm thinking of the reflections glimmering off skyscrapers)

Witch and Green 100%

After that, Opera makes sense because it's pretty close to a musical. Tale for fairy tale. Fire for "How 'bout a little fire, Scarecrow?"

Oh and Cap, though that's sort of a deep cut into Wizard of Oz lore. But in the original book, the Witch uses a magic cap to control the flying monkeys.

Oh wait, DANCE. The Act II finale of Wicked is a dance at the Ozdust Ballroom.

Galz is freaking out right now because he was hoping I would know something about Wicked but it turns out I know way too much about Wicked.

However I would point out that it seems all the suggestions you have made seemingly would have also worked with the clue Wicked: 3.

Elphaba makes it clear we're talking about the musical (and the person, the Wicked Witch of the West, across all the media in which she appears) rather than just word wicked. In particular, it doesn't point to cat, which most generic witch words would.

Are you ok with locking in Witch and Green?

If witch and green aren't ours, Galz is an absolute madman and we deserve to lose.

If anyone needs to make a case that Galz is a liar in a future mafia game, you can quote the above post where he says Green is Blue.

faust, I'd be happy to take a chance on OPERA or DANCE here. Given they're at 3 I'm inclined to do it rather than to pass. Maybe slight lean toward DANCE, since it could also just be a reference to the fact that it's a musical, as well as a plot point within said musical.

I think both DANCE and OPERA are strong enough connections that Galz would have considered them, so they're probably at worst neutral. I'm fine with another guess.
