Who dies in Fantastic Beasts 3?

Fans of the franchise will be relieved to hear that nobody dies in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledorealthough some come close.

Since The Crimes of Grindelwaldfans were expecting Ezra Miller’s Credence Barebone to meet his end in The Secrets of Dumbledoreand although the character is dying from an Obscurus throughout the film, he manages to see the conclusion.

Another character who had a brush with death is Dan Fogler’s Jacob Kowalski, who gets tortured by Grindelwald through the Cruciatus Curse. Despite going through immeasurable pain, Jacob survives the ordeal.

A lament is in order, however, for one of the qilin – magical faun-like creatures – twins and their mother, killed by the wands of Grindelwald and Credence.

Fans also thought that Grindelwald may meet his end in Fantastic Beasts 3, and it sure looked that way when the dark wizard was getting ambushed by Albus, Newt, and company. However, with a departing statement, Grindelwald fell back off one of the ledges of Bhutan and appeared.

The Secrets of Dumbledore ending explained

Grindelwald’s mission in Fantastic Beasts 3 was to capture a qilin creature in order to see the future and sway the wizarding world’s upcoming election for Supreme Head of the International Confederation of Wizards (ICW). Qilins have the power to see a person’s true soul, therefore, the creature is used to select a worthy leader.

After bewitching the qilin and standing as a candidate to rule the wizarding world, the qilin bowed before Grindelwald, as planned. However, just when Grindelwald thought he had won, Newt breaks his silence and reveals to the public that there were two qilins that had been born, and the one selected to choose the leader had been bewitched by Grindelwald.

Newt then presented the pure qilin from his case, after Bunty showed up to save the day, and the creature slowly trotted towards Albus Dumbledore to select him as the leader. Albus kindly rejected the offer and pointed the faun to another worthy candidate to be made leader, Vicência Santos, Minister of Magic for Brazil.

With a new leader in place and Grindelwald’s plan thwarted, the dark wizard then has a confrontation with Albus, which breaks the blood pact vial the pair shared. Albus previously explained that the vial could not be destroyed, however, since Grindelwald sought to kill Dumbledore at that moment, and the latter merely defended himself, the pact was broken and the vial with it.

Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore ends with Grindelwald fleeing via apparition and we see Newt and company return to Jacob’s bakery in order to see his marriage to Queenie.
