'Lovecraft Country' Almost Killed off One of the Main Characters
In the finale, we saw Leti go to battle against Christina, in which it seemed that Leti had met her final end, so how did she survive?
Spoiler alert: Spoilers for Season 1 of Lovecraft Country ahead!
The HBO hit Lovecraft Country came to a dramatic end in their season finale titled “Full Circle.” The episode was filled with magic, epic battles, and some really sad character deaths. If you haven’t watched the season finale of Lovecraft Country, we are definitely recommending that you stop reading here. Massive spoilers ahead!
After the finale ended, fans were left perplexed with so many unanswered questions, including, “How did Leti come back to life?” In the finale, we saw Leti (Jurnee Smollett) go to battle against Christina (Abbey Lee), in which it seemed that Leti had met her end, so how did she survive?
Leti was once deemed invulnerable as per Christina’s magic spell.
In a previous episode of Lovecraft Country, we saw Leti and Christina strike up a deal in which Leti would give Christina the legendary and infamous Book of Names if Christina would give her boyfriend and father of her unborn child, Tic (Jonathan Majors), the ability to be invulnerable and survive anything.
Before this deal, Leti and Tic see into the future that Tic is doomed to die, which is why Leti is willing to give up the book. Christina wants the book so that she can cast a spell to become immortal. Christina refuses to give Tic invulnerability, but instead offers it up to Leti. After a few moments of contemplation, Leti accepted the offer.
Leti and Christina have an epic battle.
Tic, Leti, and the rest of the Lovecraft Country gang work to try and defeat Christina. However, their plans are foiled when we find out that Ruby (Wunmi Mosaku), Leti’s sister, was actually Christina in disguise. It was Christina disguised as Ruby, who gave Leti a vile of what we thought was Christina’s blood for the spell. We then learn that Christina plans to use Tic’s blood to make herself immortal.
Leti and Christina end up in a fight that ends with Leti being pushed from a window. She appears to be dead after Christina removed the invulnerability spell that was previously protecting her. So, how does she survive the fall? Leti survives the fall because she was given her invulnerability once again by Christina.
Fans were perplexed as to why Christina would give Leti her invulnerability back.
After the finale aired, fans were confused about the timing of Leti getting her invulnerability back from Christina when Leti was the one trying to stop her plans to be immortal. “One thing I need help understanding... how did Leti get the Mark of Cain/invulnerability spell back after Christina pushed her out the window??” one fan wrote on Twitter.
Another wondered if there was something that happened to Leti we didn’t get a chance to see. Since Tic has power, he may have been the one to cast the spell on Leti after Christina originally took it away. “Tic had to have put that invulnerability spell on Leti before they left,“ a fan wrote.
We can only hope that we'll get an answer in Season 2 — if we get a Season 2.
