Cursed: Will Nimue Survive The Fall?

Netflix’s latest fantasy series Cursed is leaving its viewers in a state of confusion. Katherine Langford starrer series also left some people a little disappointed in the last episodes. The series is full of twists and turns.

The series takes a new take on the myth of King Arthur, with a hint of feminism in it. It focuses on the mystical Lady of the Lake, Nimue. We see her journey from a shy fey girl to a legend. So let’s hop into the article to know more about the ending if you haven’t watched Cursed yet, head on to Netflix. SPOILERS AHEAD!

Cursed Plot Summary

The series is through the eyes of Nimue, a shy girl with a mysterious gift. This gift will eventually help her to become the powerful Lady of the Lake. After losing her family because of the religious extremist group known as the Red Paladins, she finds Arthur, a mercenary, in a quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword. During her whole journey, Nimue will become a symbol of courage and rebellion; she’ll become a warrior, a leader, and a legend with time.

What Happened To Nimue At The End? Will She Survive?

Morgana, Nimue, and injured Merlin somehow manage to escape the camp of the Red Paladins after killing Father Carden. Just when they reach the stone bridge near the waterfall, they are attacked by Sister Iris. She’s been promised that she can only become a true Red Paladin only if she kills Nimue. As she shot Nimue with her arrows, she fell into the water from the bridge. After realizing her death, Merlin used the Excalibur to defeat the Red Paladins and then escaped with Morgana.

We never saw Nimue’s body in the river. What we only saw was just an image of an injured Nimue floating through the water with some blood on her. There could be a chance that she’ll be alive; after all, she’s the Lady of the Lake. After reviving, she must complete her quest to save her people.

What Is The Real Identity Of Squirrel?

In the final episode of Cursed, we saw that the Weeping Monk rescued Nimue’s friend Squirrel. When the Weeping monk asks his name, he replies with Percival. According to the original Arthurian legend, Percival will become a vital member of the Knights’ quest for the Holy Grail.

The finale also had another major twist with the revelation of Lancelot. The former villain of the series, the weeping monk, is Lancelot. Traditionally, Lancelot is one of the most famous of King Arthur’s legendary knights. He is known for his adventures and especially, for his betrayal of King Arthur by having an affair with his wife, Queen Guinevere.
