My Ranking Points
(Also posted on the Open Chat. Major spoiler warnings.)
In the first scene, the camera pans over SGE. Then it pulls back, revealing a crystal ball around it. Of course, that could’ve just been done to keep the scene going, but really it could be symbolic, maybe the crystal ball has some control over SGE or something. Very rough idea.
In the next scene, there is Soman’s name, and also Merlin’s hat and silver stars of Merlin’s. So obviously Merlin is in the book…but since in the scene the hat is SHATTERING I presume something is wrong. He’s hurt? Weak? Dying? Something’s not right with him.
Then there is Agatha, made of stone. I think we should be paying attention to the fact that they’re all made of stone, first of all. We have gathered by how that most likely the crystal ball can be used to stop time or something.
OOH SORRY TO INTERRUPT MYSELF BUT I JUST HAD A THOUGHT. SO DOVEY’S BALL IS WEAKENING, RIGHT? AND PRESUMABLY, WE’RE GUESSING THAT THE BALL HAS CONTROL OVER TIME. WHAT IF CRYSTAL ***** WERE CREATED BY FAIRY GODMOTHER’S TO KEEP CONTROL OVER THE UNIVERSE, TO KEEP THE WORLD IN BALANCE AND CONTROL TIME. DOVEY IS SICK BECAUSE THE BALL, THE MAGIC INSIDE THE BALL, IS WEAK, BUT THE BALL IS WEAK BECAUSE DOVEY IS SICK. KINDA GOES BOTH WAYS (SRY I’M DOING THIS ALL IN CAPS HAHA). SO WHAT IF WHEN THE BALL SHATTERS (LIKE IT OBVIOUSLY WILL, IT’S LATER IN THE TRAILER TOO) SOMETHING HAPPENS AND TIME GOES ALL WONKY, AND THEY NEED TO GET THE PIECES FOR MULTIPLE REASONS…BECAUSE TIME IS MESSED UP AND ALSO BECAUSE DOVEY IS REALLY, REALLY SICK. AND DYING. Y’KNOW? RANDOM THOUGHT. FEEL FREE TO POINT THE FAULTS IN IT OUT.
K so where was I? Oh, yeah. WE should pay attention to the fact that they are all made of stone, because I kinda feel like since the theme is time, maybe the stone symbolizes them stuck, frozen in time? idk. It’s my interpretation. Okay so Agatha has the crystal ball, something magical going on in it, she looks like she’s in the woods. OK now the ball has Rhian’s eyes. What if Rhian is using Dovey to control the ball, or he can control it some other way? To control time? Or what if he can use it like Dovey did, to spy on Agatha? Maybe?
Oh wait is that even Rhian? I thought it was first time watching, who else would it be? But it can’t be, because there’s both of the twins (Rhian and Jaspeth) in the background…and it can’t be Tedros because Tedros comes later…maybe it’s Sophie? I mean it doesn’t really look like Sophie but what if it is? That would clear up a bunch of stuff, like the way there’s snakes curling around her ( or whoever it is). If that’s true maybe she’s communicating with Agatha to try and help her? But really to me it looks a lot like someone male, so idk it could go a dozen different ways.
Oh and of course there’s the fact that Mysterious Person and Tedros are crumbling. Agatha wasn’t crumbling. What if the crystal ball shatters and Agatha can go into the Past because she has a piece of the crystal? And she had to stop Rhian & Jaspeth from destroying something in the Past before it’s too late? What if the crystal can also stop time? My theory’s are only growing.
*ahem* anyway back to the Tedros scene. He’s chained (captive of Rhian and Rafal, as we know, from the ending of book 4 and the start of book 5), snakes also wrapped around him to symbolize Rhian and Jaspeth. Alarming fact: Behind Tedros is an executioner axe and a chopping block with red background lighting…..UGH NO MATTER WHAT SOMAN YOU CANNOT KILL ANYONE ELSE IMPORTANT WHY SOMAN WHY. Like, Chaddick? Lancelot? AND ANADIL’S RAT. WHY?!
Confused about the pond scene, and the guy, but….could it be Rafal back when he was old? OK probably not because Rafal is, like, over, but idk. Actually, it kind of reminds me of a wish-fish pond, except in an eerie setting and there’s a snake going through the water. Confused about this part…but I’m excited to find out what it means!
I’m confused about the wolf thing too…unless it’s Hort as a man-wolf? Yeah that’s my theory. Hort as a man-wolf. Weird scene, tho. Maybe it’s not him. It kinda looks like Castor or Pollux with the body of a human.
K now Tedros has a sword. And a shield. Which is for some reason pointed AWAY from all the arrows and swords coming at him. Smart move, Tedros. Ha ha. He has a sword though. Ooh, pirates? The guy on the left looks like a pirate. Definitely. The one on the right does too, but he’s holding an axe…could Rhian and Jaspeth have hired pirates to execute Tedros? The arrows pointed at him are gold, that could mean this was at Camelot because obviously Rhian and Jaspeth have all that money from the Camelot Beautiful fund.
Okay, then there’s a scene with Agatha…she’s getting attacked with the golden arrows too apparently. They still are made of stone. Hmm.
OH SHE’S ON A STYMPH WHAT IF IT’S AT SGE.
Okay she’s sending a spell. Wait. Aren’t fingerglows supposed to be “training wheels”? Why do they still have fingerglows? OK whatever that’s not important. But there’s also other people on stymphs in the background….maybe the coven plus all those other fourth-years?
Okay that’s all in the crystal ball again…that’s not Agatha anymore…and the ball is breaking, obviously, it’s a CRYSTAL of time, not the BALL of time.
IS THAT REALLY ALL. GOD.
Okay hope you like my theory’s…please comment with yours!
OH RIGHT FORGOT TO MENTION WHAT THIS WAS FOR HAHAHAHA I’M SMART. This is my review and interpretation/theories based on the trailer.
I think the weird ghost zombie thingy in it is maybe the Lady of the Lake taking revenge on Rhain
