Debate question! ***Warning: major spoilers for the Last Ever After***
In one EverNeverTV episode, Soman said he was going to kill Sophie in TLEA, but changed his mind to Lady Lesso. Which character do you think should have died? (Based on their storyline, not which one you like more)
*claps hands over mouth* If I had a choice, I wouldn’t want either one to die. But I just couldn’t kill off Sophie, no matter how Evil she is. So I will have to say Lady Lesso. Lady Lesso was an amazing character, but I couldn’t have Sophie die, I just couldn’t. And besides, Lady Lesso’s death cleared the way for Sophie to have her happy ending at long last.
I don’t think it would have made a huge difference in my opinion.
Rafal’s death made a HUGE difference! If Sophie hadn’t killed him at that moment, he would’ve destroyed Good, and the world would end, and then there would be no happy ending for anyone, not even Sophie, because it would’ve wiped out the two people Sophie needed in her life, plus there wouldn’t be any world anymore for anybody to live in happily or otherwise. Not to mentioned millions and billions of readers would be crushed! Rival HAD to die! It was the only way!
*inhales* Sophie is not my favorite character, but you can’t just kill her! She is a very important person!
just to clarify, I meant out of Sophie and Rafal, not just any character.
As for my answer:
I think Lady Lesso should have died. Though I prefer her character to Sophie’s, I feel her death was perfect for her character arch. It shows us one final time that Evil can love and be heroes, and is the only way Aric could have died. It also made the way for Agatha and Sophie to take on new challenges as the next generation, and was a beautiful way for us to learn her name.
I wish none of them died, but saying that, I would go with Lady Lesso, because she died after rescuing the balance and she helped Sophie understand this balance before she died, and she also left “the old and the new, both in good hands,” so Sophie got her happy ending 🙂
