The sand man recap of season 1, episode 10 – the ending explained
At the end of the ninth episode, Rose and Jed are finally reunited but are now in the hands of The Corinthian.
The last episode of the first season begins with The Corinthian, one of the missing Nightmares, and Rose, the Vortex, speaks, and The Corinthian tries to convince Rose to be on his side as Morpheus will kill them both if and when he finds them.
Morpheus and The Corinthian face off, and with Rose growing stronger, the walls weaken, so The Corinthian is able to physically injure Morpheus. Corinthian must keep Rose asleep and under his control, so he can manipulate her into creating a dream that will become an entire reality, in this case, the serial killer world of Corinthians.
However, Rose is smarter and wants to find her own way by closing the walls. Morpheus de-creates the Corinthian, turning him to dust, leaving only a tiny skull. Morpheus makes all serial killers feel the pain, guilt, and suffering they caused all their victims. This leads some to confess, and others to commit suicide.
As Rose and Jed walk away, Morpheus says he’ll wait for her to fall asleep and then they’ll have to end this. Lyta goes into labor and tells Rose she’s strong enough to kill Morpheus, strong enough to end this.
Rose enters her dreams and the walls crumble, allowing humans to enter the Dream. Gilbert turns around in the beautiful glades that he is, where Rose and Morpheus face each other. As Morpheus tries to take Rose’s life, his grandmother hastily approaches them and states that she was meant to be this generation’s Vortex, but as Morpheus was captured and made to fall into a sleep without end, the burden has been passed on to the generations below. hers.
Unity takes Rose’s Heart Stone and dies for Rose to live. Unity describes her child’s father as having golden eyes. There’s only one person who has golden eyes, and that’s Desire. Morpheus looks distressed, but this makes Rose and Jed descendants of the Infinite, he releases them into the waking world.
The last ten minutes of the final see the Dreaming regain all its beauty. Morpheus enlists Desire to confront her, why she tried to make him spill the blood of the family, because spilling the blood of the family causes a lot of trouble. He threatens her not to interfere in her business, but that only seems to excite Desire.
Rose has published a book, which appears in the Dreaming library, and they all live happier lives in the waking world. Morpheus is on the beach creating a dream; he transformed Gault into a beautiful creature with wings and granted his wish by turning her into a dream. He regained control of his kingdom, creating a new era for dreams and nightmares as balance was restored.
For once, Morpheus seems cheekily happy and content. As he gazes up at the sky seeing his new creation fly away, the screen then fades to black and we are back in the realm of Hell. Lucifer has not forgotten and is still bitter. The armies of hell wish to invade The Dreaming, and then perhaps the waking world. As the generals demand action, Lucifer plans to act, plans to do something that will make God absolutely livid and bring Morpheus to his knees.
