Roll seems to be accelerating...

What is the gas cloud forward of the nozzle?  Appears to come from the thrust structure?

Also, what is the disk in the foreground of the video, 'pointing' laterally with little black thingies?

Well that was a bit epic! :)

That roll seemed to get worse, but hardly going to take away what is obviously a success.
