Netflix’s Equinox Ending Explained:
Amongst them was then-18-year-old sister, Ida. Astrid, who was nine when it happened, began having traumatizingly detailed nightmares about it shortly after, for that she got admitted into the psychiatric ward.
But little did she know they would somehow help her solve the issue one day. So as to understand the finale equinox,’ you first have to understand at least a little bit of this mythology that drives it.
The folklore of Ostara is advised in different ways, however its Danish and German roots tie it back to the origins of the Easter Bunny. The Spring Goddess, Ostara, a human woman, borrowed by the pantheonic rituals, dropped in love with the Hare King through the equinox.
And then he returned her feelings to the exact identical extent. However, because of their nature, they needed to eventually part ways. But even then, Ostara felt his presence everywhere, discovering eggs in the places they’d been together.
This narrative is introduced to us quite early on in equinox,’ when Astrid’s father informs it her as a bedtime story, revealing it to become her favorite. However, what it really is that it foreshadows the end.
The terms and conditions of their agreement were that the woman was supposed to return to him at age 18 and provide what had been sworn. Regrettably, however, when Ida had an abortion, she broke the pact, making Henrik angry. Consequently, he retained her along with her 20 classmates captive until the deal was fulfilled from the opposing side.
As we said, because Ostara is said to run from the blood the exact identical way water runs in the river, once Astrid yields to him along with his book 21 years after, everything is fixed.
Those who were trapped are allowed to go (seemingly not having aged), and the Hare King gets re-united using Ostara. Instead of returning to the real world, though, Ida and Astrid choose to reside using the Hare King in a different realm altogether.
The Secret Deal of Lene
Lene and Dennis, married and in love at one point, wanted to begin a family together, so when Lene realized that she couldn’t become pregnant, so she evoked the Hare King to have a baby.
He also granted the wish but specified that the youngster would need to be returned to him at the age of 18. Later in the shape of Henrik, the Hare King keeps an eye on your kid, Ida, to make sure things go as planned.
And this is why Lene appears to be so overprotective of her older daughter, restricting her freedom whenever possible. But after Ida ends up pregnant whether it’s out of her boyfriend at the moment, Jakob, or the Hare King himself,
then it does not seem to matter Lene changes the deal to provide up Ida’s baby instead of Ida herself, whom she had grown to be fond of. But if Ida gets an abortion without her mother knowing, she unknowingly changes the course of nature.
Lene, panicking, strives to do her best to frighten Ida she might wind up hurt due to her actions, but the adolescent doesn’t listen. And so, Lene’s worst fears come to life. Henrik induces the teenager’s graduation bus to wreck and requires all the pupils on board, save for three specific types, as hostages.
He entraps them in his other-worldly orange misted cave where they could neither go nor grow old before what he had been promised is got. The exact same cave happens to be one that haunted Astrid almost all of her life.
Why Are Jakob, Amelia, and Falke not Captured?
The three individuals had unknowingly already played their role in fulfilling the bargain created by Lene and the Hair King for Ida to him at the age of 18.
So once things went wrong, he asked them to ensure that they did the exact same again with Astrid once the time came.
What’s more, they had chosen their individual prophecies with the support of the Grimoire publication as well, which they simply had to live through. Jakob is obviously punished, losing the girl he adored to the Hare King.
Amelia loses way more than she would have imagined — her own life, her very best friend, and her sanity, needing to be Ida and be with Ida. And Falke suffers mentally every single day till things are set in motion to be corrected once more.
In the end, Jakob and Falke, knowing that their purposes have finally been fulfilled, take their own lives.
