What Is Sebastian’s True Goal?
This season of Fate: The Winx Saga focuses very much on the conflict between fairies and blood witches. In the middle of the conflict, we meet a character named Sebastian, who will serve as the key to the entire storyline. The season begins with the school becoming more of a police state. The many freedoms that the characters enjoyed during the first season were taken away when something awful started happening in the surrounding areas of the school. Fairies have begun to disappear, and no one knows the reason.
For a while, our main characters believe that the person responsible for the fairies’ disappearing is Rosalind. But when she dies at the hands of Bloom and the fairies keep disappearing, it is clear that someone else is behind the crime. Some fairies appear dead or without their powers, so the Queen makes a decision. Knowing that it was Bloom who killed Rosalind, the Queen lies and says that the enemy is, in fact, the Blood Witches. The sad truth is that the queen is not as wrong as we think she is.
It is revealed that the person behind these crimes is none other than Sebastian. He is a blood witch, and he has been using the powers of the missing fairies in the execution of a ritual. This ritual will help him open a door to the Realm of Darkness. In there, Sebastian hopes to find a legendary power that can bring people back from the dead. Bloom confronts Sebastian and says that no one can accomplish something like that, but she is proven wrong when Dowling comes back from the dead. Dowling tells her that the secret of her power should be combining both positive and negative emotions.
As the truth about the Blood Witches starts to come out to the school’s general population, relationships become even more complicated when it is revealed that some members of the school are on the Blood Witches’ side. One of these members of the school is Beatrix, who has been using everything in her toolkit to have her powers back. Beatrix is without a doubt the most interesting character this season.
Who Dies In Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2?
As we revealed previously, Rosalind is killed by Bloom in the middle of the episode. Her role as an antagonist is cut short, but it makes things interesting, and it adds a new layer of complication to Bloom’s character as she keeps learning how to control the power of the Dragon Flame. Sebastian wants the Dragon Flame for himself, and he captures Sky to force Bloom to give it to him. Sebastian explains that with the Dragon Flame in his possession, he will be able to open the portal to Darkness.
He also reveals to Bloom that her mother also had the Dragon Flame with her and that she ended up killing thousands of people during an ancient war. To prevent her daughter from having the same fate, she put Bloom in stasis and then exiled herself to the Realm of Darkness. This means that Bloom was born at least a thousand years in the past, but like her mother, she also possesses this great power that could kill the people she loves. Bloom is about to give the power of the Flame to Sebastian when Beatrix intercedes, stopping the process.
Sebastian is furious, and he kills Beatrix using his magic. It is here that Bloom and their friends combine her powers to kill Sebastian. Stella and the others finally manage to unlock their complete fairy transformations and combine their powers, killing Sebastian in the process. It is a bittersweet ending, as Beatrix sacrificed herself. She is buried in the cemetery. However, it is revealed that Sebastian had already opened the portal before dying. The only way to close it is from the inside.
Blooms steps into the portal and there she finds her mother. We expect to see this relationship bloom in the following season. Also, the power that Sebastian was looking for inside the Real of Darkness has apparently escaped into the Otherworld, as we see a shadow figure standing in front of Beatrix’s grave. Will this entity possess Beatrix’s body? Or will it prove Sebastian right by bringing Beatrix back from the dead? We’ll have to wait for next season to see what happens.
