How Did It End?

Ultimately, Eric allows himself to be sacrificed so the world wouldn’t end. From the beginning, Andrew tried to poke holes in Leonard’s repeated pleas that the world would end unless one member of Andrew and Eric’s family killed one another, but eventually, Leonard broke through. Maybe it was the commitment of Redmond, Ardiane, Sabrina, and Leonard to commit murder or suicide? Perhaps it was seeing on television tidal waves, planes falling out of the sky, or reports of an epidemic? It’s hard to say.

The only thing we know for sure is that with Andrew willingly killing Eric, it all came to an end. Albeit after hundreds of thousands, if not millions, died, but after Eric’s death, Andrew and Wen go to Leonard’s truck and drive to a diner. There, they see all the various events Leonard promised receding and realize he wasn’t lying. It wasn’t him setting up the television in the cabin to play scenes at certain moments – it was all real, and his stubbornness allowed for massive casualties.

Is There Sequel/ Prequel Potential?

Nothing is set up for a sequel, and there isn’t much given to create a prequel, either. Yes, Redmond, real name Rory, played a role in Andrew and Eric’s life, when he beat Andrew to the point of catching an assault charge and inspiring Andrew to learn how to fight and get the gun which ended his partner’s life.

However, as for everyone else? There are no connections made between Andrew, Eric, or even Wen and the others. So there isn’t much presented to continue this story going backward, and with a flash forward of how Eric imagined life would be if he sacrificed himself, there isn’t much of a need for a sequel either. Unless they want new horsemen and a new family tortured with the obligation to kill one another to save the world.
