She already crossed the statues though. She's in the room beyond the statue room when the door shuts and she's engulfed in silence.
Crap, you're right (damnit, Thunt, why'd you give us an interesting room that you just blew past?)... In the room with the creepy sewn-up mouth.

If it is, in deed, a sewn up mouth, I'd imagine cutting the binding to release the lips will release the silence spell and/or provide a way out.

And the blood... the blood on the wall after the first pair, on the side of the non-matching statue, leads me to think that crossing in front of a statue holding an orb that doesn't match the eye of the statue across it will gibs the character.
I don't think that's blood. Pretty sure they are hell strands, from the world turning into a dimension of hell. They match the stuff hanging around the border of the page.

If Silent Hill taught me anything (after always carry a flashlight, radio, and notepad), it's that there's very little -- if any -- difference between blood and hell-strands.

Kin starts thinking "that's going to make spell casting difficult"

I don't know DND rules, but wouldn't silence make spell casting *impossible* and not "just" difficult?
No. Some spells don't have a verbal component, like true strike. For others, you can get the silent spell feat. It will allow you to cast spells as it were one level higher. Example: Fireball is a lvl 3 spell if I recall correctly and silent fireball is a 4th lvl spell.

One of the funniest examples is here: http://goblinscomic.com/comic/10122010-3
As a side note, one of the problems Goblins has sometimes is over explaining stuff. All Ears had to say is "it's okay, I can make a safety rope." He didn't need to explain the steps involved, we can get that from seeing how he's going to throw the Axe with a rope attached.
Yeah, but I find it humorous for some reason. But then, I like to change song lyrics into overly wordy or unnecessarily descriptive versions of the original to annoy my friends.

Hey! Why are you reading this? It's bad for your eyes, and there's nothing to see here; no words of wit or sage like advice.... Nope, none of that crap... Still here? Well, I guess you can stay for a little while, but no touching. Ok, MAYBE a little bit of touching, but don't expect a kiss... Oh, and don't expect me to cuddle afterwards, either. This is purely physical in nature, and you can't REALLY want something serious after everything we've been through? Fine... 20 seconds of heavy petting, and that's IT! Annnnnnnd done...

So... Silenced party attacks Kin and prophecy ensues because Minmax can't say she's a friend?

...Who do you think is silenced? Besides, everybody wanting the prophesy to happen with such haste is creepy. It'll be at least half-fulfilled by the time they cross The Forever Drop.

I’m making the assumption that anyone entering the space gets silenced. Also I don’t WANT the prophesy to happen, I just quickly brainstormed a possible way for it to do so.

Plus we haven’t had a big bummer in a while, so we’re due for some suffering 😐

Still, you're forgetting that she also befriended the goblins when they were escaping Brassmoon. If she can survive getting their attention, they can probably pull her out and clarify a lot of misunderstandings regarding the goblins' alignments. If anything, M&GAP will either join her to escape their own more dangerous room or they might assist each other in progress without the chance to reunite just yet.
