CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA Season 3 Ending Explained + Season 4 Theories


Part 3 of Chilling Adventures has finally
arrived with Sabrina taking Hell under new management and doubling her efforts against
dangerous new cosmic threats to Greendale. Yippee-ki-yay, movie lovers! I’m Jan and in this video I’ll be discussing
the mind-blowing finale of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 3 and how Sabrina changed
her destiny forever. Plus, I’ll explain what was unleashed in the
very final scene and everything to expect in Part 4! There will, of course, be spoilers ahead,
so take care if you’re not all caught up. Part 3 of Chilling Adventures is perhaps the
most complicated season so far with Sabrina using time travel to undo the apocalyptic
catastrophe that unfolds in the final two episodes. So, first we need to quickly recap what happened. In an attempt to secure Hell against her challenger
Caliban and gain control over the three Unholy Regalia, Sabrina left her family and friends
just as they were most vulnerable. While she was away, tragedy struck Greendale
as Father Blackwood invaded the Spellman Mortuary killing Prudence, Mambo Marie, and Zelda. Meanwhile pagans abducted Sabrina’s friends
to use as human sacrifices for the Great Flowering ceremony to summon their Green Man god. And Sabrina herself was tricked into handing
over the final item of unholy regalia to Caliban who then entombed her in the Ninth Circle
of Hell. Decades later, a Sabrina from the future arrives
in the Ninth Circle to free the young witch from her stony prison by swapping places with
her. The newly liberated Sabrina returns to Greendale
with the Unholy Regalia and discovers the only person she knows left alive is Ambrose
who explains that the pagans now rule the mortal realm and are harvesting human blood
to feed the Green Man. Ambrose still has the time egg he stole from
Blackwood, and together they use it along with the magical energy from the Unholy Regalia
in a time travel spell. Sabrina travels back several decades to just
before the catastrophe. Knowing what’s about to happen, she reaches
her family and friends before Blackwood and the pagans, and teleports them to safety at
Dorian’s Gray Room. She also hatches a plan to defeat the pagans
which involves hedge witch Pesta using a glamour to masquerade as Ms Wardwell who’s placed
in the Green Man statue as a virgin sacrifice. Pesta then infects the plant god statue, causing
it to rot and die, preventing the Great Flowering from ever happening. With her friends, family and Greendale saved,
and a catastrophic future averted, Sabrina knows she has to return to the Ninth Circle
of Hell because as Future Sabrina told her: “When you’re done, it will be your turn.” “My turn to what?” “To be me. To do this.” Right now I have to go. There’s a promise I have to keep.” But this wouldn’t be Chilling Adventures without
Sabrina ignoring the rules and advice she’s given, even by herself in this case. So she goes back to the Ninth Circle, but
with something else in mind. She intercepts a past version of herself and
warns her she’s about to be tricked by Caliban. Basically, Sabrina figures that if she stops
herself from ever being trapped in the Ninth Circle, then she can avoid having to swap
back with the imprisoned Future Sabrina because, her thinking is, she never gets trapped. This creates a huge time paradox, which I’ll
explain in just a moment, but to mix things up further, when the intercepted Sabrina suggests
they should merge back into a single Sabrina, our original Sabrina instead reveals she has
a plan for them both to get what they want. As a way of reconciling her dual nature and
balancing her own conflicting desires, original Sabrina decides to have her cake and eat it,
by allowing a double of herself to exist, so one can be in Hell while the other is on
Earth. Now by the end of Part 3, we essentially have
a set of Sabrina twins, something that was foreshadowed right in the very first episode
of Season one. If you’ve watched my previous Sabrina videos,
you’ll know I theorised that when Sabrina had a vision of two babies in the woods, one
with cloven hooves and another with human feet, it hinted at Sabrina having a secret
twin. Of course, that vision could have simply been
a metaphor for Sabrina’s dual heritage. But now we see it was more than that and did
actually hint at the future existence of two Sabrinas. Sabrina herself is unfazed by the implications
of this and revels in the doubling of herself when she boasts to Caliban: “Because I’m one
step ahead of you and twice the monarch you could ever be.” Now, if you’re anything like Ambrose, you
might be rolling your eyes at Sabrina’s evident disregard for maintaining a stable timeline:
“If you never fulfilled your role and freed yourself in the first place, the fact that
there are two of you… You have created a time paradox.” “Cool.” “No, not cool at all. No, the ramifications of this are horrifying
at best.” Ambrose is technically correct, as logically
if Sabrina has changed the future so that she was never trapped, then Future Sabrina
would never have come back to free her, and our original Sabrina would never have been
able to go back in time, save Greendale and intercept herself. Sabrina’s own actions could put the stability
of her timeline in danger in something akin to “Back To The Future”, the movie which Future
Sabrina referenced when she came back to set original Sabrina free. In Back To The Future, Marty has to be careful
not to interfere too much with events in the past, such as his parents getting together. And when he temporarily puts that in jeopardy,
his own existence becomes threatened. Future Sabrina already warned Original Sabrina
about this: “Just remember when you’re done with everything,
you have to come back to right here, right now, and do what I just did to complete the
time loop. It’s the only way to keep the realms preserved. If you don’t, it could be chaos.” Chaos, of course, is to be expected in this
show. I mean, the show’s acronym almost spells out
the word in English, and does so completely in Spanish, a lovely little detail from creator
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. And as Ambrose pointed out to Sabrina:
“Everything has consequences and there are always loose ends.” One of those loose ends that everyone, including
Ambrose, seems to have forgotten is revealed in the very final scene of Part 3, and it’s
as a major consequence of altering the past. In this new timeline, Blackwood has actually
managed to get back both the Time Egg and his twin son and daughter. To understand why Blackwood now has the egg,
we need to think back to what happened when he went to the Spellman house in search of
the Time Egg that Ambrose and Prudence had stolen from him. In the original apocalyptic timeline, Blackwood
killed Prudence, Mambo Marie and Zelda when he broke into the house. But just before dying, Prudence begged Ambrose
to stop Blackwood’s plan by keeping the Time Egg away from him. So Ambrose hid the Egg in the Greendale Mines
until Sabrina returned decades later and used it for the time travel spell. In the new timeline, Sabrina prevents the
death of Prudence, Mambo Marie and Zelda and they’re teleported together with Ambrose to
safety at Dorian’s Gray Room What everyone forgot though is that this time
when Blackwood breaks into the house there’s nobody there to stop him from stealing back
the Time Egg and finding where his children are hidden. And so, with the Time Egg in hand, we see
Blackwood summon the Eldritch terrors he talked about so much this season:
“Hear the birth cries of this abomination and tear through the skin of reality.” Blackwood continues the ritual and pierces
the Time Egg with a dagger which releases an unseen monster. We hear shrieks, a snarl and some chittering
sounds, as one of the Eldritch Terrors that Blackwood’s ceremony summoned is let loose
in the Greendale woods. To properly understand the nature of the beast
Blackwood has summoned, we need to jump back to the second episode when Ambrose and Prudence
tracked Blackwood down to his hiding place in Loch Ness, Scotland. At the lake, Blackwood summoned a creature
he called the “Deep One”, which is a term that’s been used for a group of water-dwelling
humanoids in the literature of H.P. Lovecraft. The “Deep One” which rises of out the lake
brings Blackwood the Time Egg that will later give birth to the Eldritch Terror. The Deep Ones are also part of Lovecraft’s
Cthulhu Mythos where they’re kept in check by the magic of the Old Gods. But with the pagans and their Old Gods defeated
in Chilling Adventures’ new timeline, the door is now open for Lovecraftian monsters
to enter the world. It’ll be interesting to see how these Eldritch
beings and their powers are portrayed on screen in the show as, in Lovecraft’s works, the
idea is that simply gazing upon a cosmic entity like Cthulhu will drive an ordinary human
insane, a concept that was also used for the monsters in the Netflix movie Bird Box. Blackwood references this idea somewhat when
he refers to the creature he plans to unleash as “unspeakable”. These Eldritch creatures also likely come
from an entirely different dimension. In fact, Ambrose already suspected that Blackwood
was hiding in an alternate reality of sorts when they were searching for him at the start
of the season. “Someone who could be anywhere in the world,
if not another dimension.” And Blackwood deliberately chose Loch Ness
in Scotland for his hideout because of its special location:
“Loch Ness lies atop a powerful rift along the Earth’s ley lines. Aleister Crowley himself once harnessed its
energies for his own higher magicks. A magick that could warp the very fabric of
time and space.” Blackwood himself seems to have dabbled in
some time manipulation while at Loch Ness, because when Prudence and Ambrose find him
and his children, in the space of just a month they’ve grown from babies into teenagers. “I’ve spent fifteen years inside a temporal
church of my own creation.” The threat that these Eldritch monsters may
pose to not just the mortal realm but also Hell if not Heaven as well is already felt
by two characters in the final episode. Mambo Marie senses something wrong in the
air and tells Zelda: “We must harness your coven’s maternal pouvoir
for protection, and prepare them for war.” And over in Hell, as Sabrina prepares for
her formal coronation as queen, Lilith tells her:
“Every queen must be made battle-ready. Every girl must prepare for war.” Lilith is probably sensing the incoming inter-dimensional
threat that the Eldritch terrors represent. But I also wonder whether we’ll see Heaven
getting involved in this conflict. Indeed, there was a little tease to this briefly
by Zelda in Part 3: “Oh, honestly. First Purgatory, now Hell. What’s next? Heaven?” And in the original apocalyptic timeline,
Heaven decided to intervene after the armies of Hell attacked the pagans on Earth. So it’s quite possible we’ll see another heavenly
intervention if Hell interferes in the earthly clash against the Eldritch Terrors. Alternatively, or perhaps as well, Heaven
could get involved in trying to remedy any possible instability caused by the time paradox
created by Sabrina. “You have to come back..
to complete the time loop. It’s the only way to keep the realms preserved.” Fortunately, to combat this new cosmic terror
that’s coming in Part 4, Sabrina seems to be levelling up with each new season:
“Update: I have more power than I did before.” By the end of Part 3, she’s able to teleport
between Hell and Earth without any special spell or portal like the ones she needed from
Dorian in the first episode. Another new ability she seems to have is persuasion,
where she can convince another person to believe something. Sabrina uses this with Lucy Anderson’s mother
when she and Roz are looking for clues to the girl’s whereabouts. “You wouldn’t mind if we took one of Lucy’s
pinwheels with us, would you? No…
you wouldn’t mind at all.” “I wouldn’t mind at all.” Star Wars fans might see this as a power similar
to a Jedi Mind Trick. “These aren’t the droids you’re looking for.” “These aren’t the droids we’re looking for.” On top of that, Sabrina’s eyes go white when
she tells Caliban to back off. This seems to indicate that when Lilith restored
Sabrina’s powers at the end of Part 2, the young witch also got back the powers she inherited
from her father Lucifer which saw her resurrect from the dead, levitate and burn people alive. “I am the Dark Lord’s sword!” As for Sabrina’s love-life, well, things didn’t
turn out so great for her in Part 3. Although she rescued Nick from Hell, the after-effects
of being one with the Dark Lord made him feel he could no longer be with Sabrina because
he saw too much of Lucifer, her father, in her. And when she goes to perform a cord-cutting
spell to permanently remove any feelings she has for Nick, Salem brings up Harvey. Despite claiming she only loves Harvey platonically,
Sabrina quickly realises that she does still have romantic feelings for him as well. So, she adds Harvey’s name to the candle and
performs the spell. It’s a painful moment for Sabrina and implies
she may be mostly loveless in Part 4, something that Lilith also mentioned while preparing
Sabrina to become Queen of Hell. “Let nothing touch you, let no man hold power
over you.” A small question I have though is whether
the cord-cutting spell actually worked if Sabrina added two names to the candle? Fans of Sabrina and Harvey eventually getting
back together also had their hopes dashed when Sabrina herself said to Harvey that he
and Roz are destined for each other. “You guys are endgame.” An important change by the end of Part 3 is
that the Greendale coven no longer worships the Dark Lord, but has now become the Order
of Hecate, worshipping the Triple Goddess instead. Early in the season, Zelda realises it makes
no sense to continue worshipping Lucifer when he’s deliberately causing the coven’s powers
to weaken by withholding his powers as punishment for their part in trapping him inside Nick’s
body. But it’s not until Zelda’s shot and enters
the Nether Realm, aka Limbo, that she finally discovers the solution to restoring the coven’s
powers. When she sees the three pictures of the new
moon, half-moon, and full moon during a vision of her own death, Zelda understands that only
Hecate, the three-formed goddess, has the power to restore the coven. “The order of Hecate, worshipping the three-in-one”
I think Hecate could come into play as well in Season 4 as part of restoring the balance
between realms and defeating the Eldritch Terrors. In Classical mythology, Hecate has acted as
a goddess of boundaries and as a mediator between the divine and the mortal realms. She was thought to have the power to either
prevent or allow dangerous spirits to pass through entrances. In Chilling Adventures, when Zelda leads the
coven in prayer to the goddess, Hecate is able to bring Hilda back to the world of the
living and, conversely, she may be able to help banish the Eldritch Terrors back to their
own dimension. As a mediator, Hecate could also assist in
any dispute between Heaven and Hell or Earth, perhaps over how to handle two Sabrinas existing
at the same time. Something that Season 3 expanded on was the
connections and easter eggs to Riverdale. In fact, the show even revealed some dark
backstory about the origins of the Blossom’s maple syrup business. Tap in the top right for a full breakdown
of that and many other details you might have missed such as the hidden clue that told us
right from the beginning that Robin [Goodfellow] was a hobgoblin. There’s also a link to that in the video description. So, what do you think of Part 3 and Sabrina
doubling herself?! Leave your thoughts and any theories you have
about Part 4 in the comments below. Next, tap left for all the amazing details
you might have missed in Part 3 or tap right for another video you’re sure to like. And if you enjoyed this, a thumbs-up and a
share are hugely appreciated. Thanks for watching and see ya next time. Yippee-ki-yay, movie lovers!

  1. Which video talks about the Greendale/Riverdale syrup connection? I clicked on the card and only saw the end of Season 2 recap video as the latest

  2. This season was the weakest and got very gory😐 wasn't bad wasn't good but still enjoyable . Favourite episode is still episode 2 still didn't like the see of Aunt Zelda eating that south side was disgusting . I've seen Gore in other shows and movies but it was just shocking to see this in Sabrina .

  3. Just finished the season and WOW…just WOW. It was truly…..BAD. The writing was lazy as hell and the characters had little to no development. I find myself asking, "what's the point"? The fact that Sabrina just shrugs off the consequences of her time travel paradox when her impulsive decisions have had huge repercussions in the past shows her character has learned nothing. All the moments showing Harvey and Sabrina still have feelings for each other, even Ros having visions of them together, leads to nothing and undoing everything with time travel basically ripping off Endgame? REALLY?!! Then Nick….my poor Nick. What the hell did the writers do to you? Destroyed his character and replaced him with a winny little B**ch, that's what they did. This show is becoming Riverdale, in all the worst ways, mark my words 😭😡🤬

  4. Part 3, not season 3. Each season is broken up in to two parts.

    Part 1: S01 E01-E10 + E11 as the Christmas Special.
    Part 2: S01 E12-E20.
    Part 3: S02 E01-E09.
    Part 4: S02 E10-E18.

  5. How did blackwood still find the twins!??? How come prudence didnt take them orb Ambrose?!! Ugh… why only 8episodes

  6. Couldn't she have just merged and passed Lillith or her Father the throne back? I knwo it would've been problematic, but not on the catastrophic level she just did when she created the paradox …. whew chile. For her to be so smart, she does dumb ass things

  7. Ok the season has been out 24 hours..maybe give people a chance to watch it before trying to explain it to them.

  8. I used to like Sabrina in Part 1-2, but now in Part 3 I didn’t really like her. She only did whatever she wanted, not what was best for everyone. As well as the way she never took responsibility of Hell, only when she “had” to, or to get what she wanted. I was honestly kinda disappointed… Though I’m hoping for it to get better later on.

  9. Honestly people keep saying it’s so messy and rushed but I think you guys are just mad cause it’s getting so complex there setting up so many story’s and so much more character development when they have time it felt rushed because truly in Sabrinas time they were being rushed everyone was rushing Sabrina, the coven, etc. I felt it kept it the pace of what was truly happening to them which made me feel for them and be on edge

  10. No one of these poorly written characters are strong enough to whiteness Lovecraftian creations
    God I fucking hate the writing of this teen bullshit show

  11. My opinion on this season is it was definitely rushed. Instead of making a season only 8 episodes I think it would have benefited them to make it at least 10 maybe even 12 episodes. The one good thing is it never got boring because there was so much going on but that’s also a bad thing because we were barely able to process one thing before it was already moving onto the next. My hopes and predictions for next season are we will see more character development all around. Sort of like how season 1 set us up for a strong season 2, I hope season 3 is setting us up for a strong season 4. Also, Sabrina never fully embraced her dark side in season 3 but in season 4 she will probably have no choice but to. As for the whole time paradox thing I’m predicting that the teenager version will be destroyed and the queen of hell version will remain. And I want to hear more about Nick. It’s mentioned that all his family is dead, maybe they’ll address that and learn something about his past. As for sabrina and nicks relationship, I think Sabrina will be more involved with Harvey this season because they still have unresolved feeling for each other but hopefully that will only make them realize that they have grown apart because Sabrina really loves nick and Harvey really loves Ros.

  12. Can someone tell me why Sabrina went from smiting angels to being weak as fuck again. I thought we were going to see her being a boss bitch after the end of last season but Instead she is being beaten by everyone she comes across, like bested by a fucking ice cream truck man. It’d be ok but she is literally the daughter of Lucifer and we’ve seen what she can do. Fair enough the covens powers were reduced but when they fought the pagans she didn’t do anything??

  13. Can someone please explain to me how Sabrina from the future arrived to the 9th circle of Hell to free the trapped Sabrina? I really don’t understand it

  14. Their idea of bringing Riverdale concepts into this show to aim for a crossover is just dumb Sabrina is unique in her own way and I expected something amazing in this season until the musical came and everything else I’m so disappointed please don’t ruin it for part 4

  15. I just got one word to say all this season, CooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooL

  16. I think Sabrina in hell is the prophecy.Because in the depths of the coal mines, is the prophetic mosaic depicting a white haired witch. And I think that Sabrina vs Sabrina will play a key role in bringing upon the apocalypse. And also because past Sabrina doesn't belong in that time frame.
