Who dies in Arcane Act 3?

November 21, 2021

Who dies in Arcane Act 3, it goes without saying that contains major spoilers on the plot.

The explosive – literally – the final act of Arcane is now streaming on Netflix, and it’s a doozy. You can read our in-depth, in-depth thoughts on the last three episodes by clicking here, here, and here, but if you’re the bloodthirsty kind, you’re probably wondering which of the main characters actually survived the story. The show certainly didn’t shy away from killing people, and a few familiar faces didn’t come out unscathed in the finale. So let’s do some accounting.

Who dies in Arcane Act 3?


The corrupt Enforcer who spent the season in Silco’s pocket meets his end in the seventh episode, “The Boy Savior”. When Ekko and Caitlyn meet him to show him the gemstone and provide proof that Silco is behind it all, he shoots Ekko and tries to forcefully take the gemstone. However, the Firelights explode on the bridge before Ekko confronts Jinx. Marcus’ last words to Caitlyn are an instruction for her to tell her daughter that he loves her.

It sounds like a minor death, but it’s actually a big part of Jayce’s arc. Throughout the season, he has dreamed of helping the people of Piltover use his inventions, and when Vi finally convinces him to help demolish the Shimmer Manufacturing Plant in Silco, he runs out of steam with the diplomacy. But his first real taste of the action translates into a sad tragedy – one of the workers there, a young boy, is accidentally killed by Jayce, causing him a lot of personal trauma and exacerbating the need for revenge. Silco.


Viktor’s ill health has been a sad subplot throughout the season, and in the final act it reaches a particularly tragic note when Viktor’s continued mechanization using the Hexcore is interrupted by Sky. She tries to pull him away from the powerful object, but is sucked inside, much to Viktor’s dismay.


Silco’s lieutenant has been trying to wrest power from his boss for ages, and by teaming up with Sevika, he thinks the latest episode, “The Monster You Created”, is his luck. But he underestimates Sevika’s loyalty to Silco. Just when it looks like they’re on the verge of a coup, Sevika brings her blade down on Finn instead.

The second confrontation between Sevika and Vi is one of the highlights of “The Monster You Created”, a brutal one-on-one brawl that shows how far Vi has come since their previous encounter. As Vi wins the fight – with a little help from Vander’s mind – I’m not entirely sure Sevika was 100% confirmed dead at the end. Still, she didn’t look too sexy, so she deserves to be included here.


Many of the season’s arcs are rewarded in a deranged finale sequence clearly inspired by Mad Hatter’s snacks, in which Jinx seats Vi, Caitlyn, and Silco around a table and assigns them all to help her decide if she should go. sit on the chair labeled “Powder” or the one labeled “Jinx”. In other words, does she kiss her sister and her old identity, or Silco and his new one. Of course, it’s not that simple, and Jinx’s warring personalities create a lot of confusion. When she does eventually open fire, it’s on Silco, killing him, but she takes the Jinx chair nonetheless, completing her arc.

The entire Piltover Council (presumably)

Jinx’s first act after adopting his new character is to insert the gemstone into his weapon and fire a giant rocket at Piltover’s council, where everyone from Jayce to Mel and her mother is currently debating. Since the show ends just as the rocket strikes, we don’t know for sure the extent of the damage, but it wouldn’t be unreasonable to assume that everyone present is now dead.

So that’s who dies in Arcane Act 3, at least to our knowledge. Did we miss anyone? Let us know in the comments below.
