I thought the situation in the new agent's trailer was two stroopwafel for Netherlands but it seems like it's a heart-shaped waffle, that's very Scandinavian

Apart from this, the latest Night Market's background had Northern lights that are in Norway, which made the theory of Deadlock's origin in Norway even stronger.
In addition to this, fans have also pointed out that Deadlock’s name might be a reference to the Norwegian word “dødlås,” which means deadlock or stalemate. This also hinted her role as a Sentinel who can prevent enemies from advancing or escaping.
