The Sandman Season 1 Ending Defined: What’s Subsequent for Dream and Lucifer?

These tales roughly parallel the primary two collected editions of the comedian – Preludes and Nocturnes and The Doll’s Home. These collected the primary yr or so of the comics and thus give us a attainable roadmap of the place the present would possibly head subsequent.

What’s Subsequent for Lucifer?

The final scene of the present is Gwendoline Christie’s Lucifer plotting with Mazikeen (Cassie Clare), Lucifer’s half-faced consort and descendant of Lillith, ominously menacing about what she’s going to do to destroy Dream. If the comics are something to go by, what Lucifer does to Dream is extra screwed up than any of us might think about: She places Dream in control of Hell.

Comics Lucifer (who was finally spun off into his personal well-liked, beloved collection that served as the idea for the tv present) determined one of the simplest ways to screw with Morpheus was to empty Hell and put him in control of what was left. We’re informed within the present and the e book that Hell residents to a sure extent self-select – if individuals consider they belong there, they find yourself there. So as soon as Morpheus is in cost, individuals preserve coming, and he has to determine what to do. 

The largest open query is what the present does with the opposite pantheons. Lucifer’s abdication leaves a gap within the afterlife, one which deities from different religions attempt to step in to fill. Will we see Susano-no-Miko from the Shinto pantheon? Odin making an attempt to flee the cycle of Ragnaroks? Or will the tv adaptation lean closely into the intra-hell intrigue?

What’s Subsequent for Need and Despair?

Whereas most residents of Hell self-select, not all of them do, and we met one on Morpheus’ first journey into the netherrealm in season 1 of the present: Nada, his outdated lover. She was banished to Hell by Morpheus 1000’s of years in the past as punishment for arguing with him about their love (Morpheus was an actual jerk). Within the comics, Season of Mists, the story arc that offers with the brand new established order for Hell, begins with an argument between Dream, Need, and Despair over a household dinner about Dream’s shabby remedy of his outdated love. They finally encourage Morpheus to return to Hell and free Nada, setting the “duel” between Lucifer and Dream in movement.

They’re nearly sure to make use of this within the subsequent season (if there may be one). Mason Alexander Park’s Need and Donna Preston’s Despair didn’t get practically sufficient display screen time in season 1: it is a key plot in Morpheus’ progress and an excuse to get these wildly gifted actors extra display screen time early in season 2. I can’t think about the showrunners not taking it.
