SUBSEQUENT TREATMENT OF THE REPLACEMENT KOHEN GADOL (cont'd)
R. Yosi agrees that if the first Kohen Gadol dies, that the replacement takes his place permanently.

Answer: We might have wished to avoid hard feelings.
A REPLACEMENT WIFE
Question: Why do the Rabanan regard the risk of his P'sul more so than his death?
Answer: The likelihood of Tum'ah is greater.
Question: How would R. Yehudah respond to the endless risks concern of the Rabanan?
Answer: We concern ourselves with the risk of one death, not two (while Rabanan hold that once we are concerned about deaths, we would be concerned even for two).
Question: What of the endless risk charge against the Rabanan?
Answer: Kohen Gadol is a Zariz.
Question: Then why the need for the replacement?
Answer: To spur him on even further.
Question: But designating the replacement does not make her his Beiso?
Answer: He gives her Kidushin.
Question: But without Chupah, she is still not Beiso?
Answer: He does Chupah.
Question: But then he has two wives, and it is not Beiso?
Answer: He then divorces her.
Question: Then we are back where we started?!
Answer: He divorces her on condition.
THE CONDITIONAL DIVORCE OF THE KOHEN GADOL

Question #2: A Get with a life-long condition is not valid?!
Answer: He stipulates 'If the other does not die... '.
Question: He could end up having had done the first half of the Avodah with two wives?!

Question: He could end up with no wife?
Answer: He divorces both with stipulations:
To the first 'If the other does not die...'.
To the second 'If you do not walk into... '.
Question: But he could end up with no wife?!
Answer: He takes the stipulation to the second wife into his own control (and if he sees that one is dying he can retroactively activate the divorce of the other).
Question: But it says the singular "Bayis" by Yibum, as well?
Answer: The extra "Yevimto" increases the number.
