Who is Rose Walker in The sand man season 1?
Rose Walker is a young woman desperately looking for her missing brother. But in her search for Jed, she not only finds the grandmother she never knew existed, but she learns that she is a Dream Vortex.
At first, Rose is unaware of the power she is displaying; and the audience becomes aware that Rose is a dream vortex as sisters Desire and Despair plan to use Rose in their plot against Lord Morpheus. Rose’s first role in the series is based on her mission to find her brother. And while money is tight for Rose, she’s still determined to find Jed.
What does Rose Walker do?
While Rose does not appear in The sand man until the seventh episode, the story of herself and her family plays a big part in the last four episodes. After traveling to Sussex with her friend Lyta, Rose meets her grandmother, Unity, who has been sleeping for several years. Then, Rose’s mission to find Jed leads her to Florida, where she gets attacked. Fortunately, no serious harm comes to Rose. And soon after, Rose enters the dream realm as Jed tries to escape his abusive adoptive parents.
Having now teamed up with Lord Morpheus, Rose continues to follow Jed’s trail. But she just misses Jed as The Corinthian gets to her first. Eventually, Rose goes to a “cereal” convention, and after reuniting with Jed, The Corinthian Safe Rose and Jed of being murdered by a crazed killer. After rescuing the two siblings, The Corinthian takes the opportunity to try to convince Rose to help him kill Lord Morpheus. The Corinthian says that Lord Morpheus will kill them both. Rose, however, sees through the Corinthian and uses her power to allow Lord Morpheus to turn him to dust.
But the threat is not over for Rose as Lord Morpheus still wants/must kill her. When it’s time for Lord Morpheus to kill Rose, Unity appears and tells Lord Morpheus to kill her instead. Unity gets her wish, and Rose and Jed are allowed to live happily ever after in the waking world.
