Peacock’s ‘Vampire Academy’ concludes its first season with a moving finale that leaves the fate of its main characters in deep limbo. The future of the Dominion is bleak as the Strigoi threat is greater than ever. Instead of giving the audience some answers, the finale throws more questions into the mix, setting up the story for season two. While the characters’ true fates won’t be revealed until season two arrives, here we break down the end of Season 1 and decipher what lies ahead for the Moroi and their guardians. SPOILERS AHEAD!

Vampire Academy Season 1 Episode 10 Summary

The Dominion comes under a brutal attack by Strigoi running around and wreaking havoc. Christian realizes that the only chance for survival is to rebuild the protective wall around the Dominion, a wall that the Strigoi cannot penetrate. But the problem is that the key to lock that door has been stolen, which requires a new key to be made. Meanwhile, Lissa finds herself in an even more dangerous situation when the Queen is poisoned. He tries to heal the monarch but fails. He is forced to run for his life.

Rose and Mason escape to the human world, but return when Mason tells her that Dimitri is in prison, leaving Lissa vulnerable. Upon their return, they devise a plan to evacuate the area before the next Strigoi attack. Meanwhile, Andre escapes from Tatya’s captivity and reunites with his sister. Just when everything seems to be changing for the better for the Dragomir family, fate strikes again.

Vampire Academy Season 1inale: What Happens to Rose and Lissa?

At the beginning of the season, when we first meet Rose and Lissa, we see them making plans to leave the Dominion and travel the world on their own. Currently, Lissa’s family is still alive, so she doesn’t face the pressure of claiming the throne and the politics that come with it. Rose is also focused on completing her training and becoming Lissa’s guardian. Although the thought of leaving the protected walls of the Dominion is terrifying, the prospect excites them.

When they left the Dominion, they were no longer the same people. A lot has happened over time and this time running away is not an option or an adventure. It is a necessity for their survival. With the death of the queen, Tatiana moves for the throne. He needs a council to elect him, but he knows that Victor still has some supporters who could cause him trouble. So he unleashes a few Strigoi who conveniently kill any humans who might stand against him.

At the end of the night, the voting ended and Tatiana was crowned Dominion Queen. As this happens, he declares Lissa a person of interest in the Queen’s murder. Getting Lisa out of the way is important to him because she is the only one who can challenge Tatiana’s authority and claim the throne. The Queen declared Lissa heir to the throne before she died, and some Dragomir family loyalists may still want Lissa on the throne rather than Tatiana.

With her brother gone and her reputation tarnished, Lissa has no choice but to run. At least until Tatiana finds a way to strike back. He is accompanied by Rose, who does not want to leave Lissa anymore. The last time I did this, disastrous things happened. Now that her best friend is gone, she can’t let herself do it alone. Plus, without Lissa, there’s nothing connecting him to the Dominion anymore. Except for Dimitri, that is. But she is not as important as Lissa.

Another goal of Rose’s new adventure is the opportunity to meet her father. The only thing he knew about her was that she was a Moroi. Her dhampir mother, Janine, never spoke of her, and Rose always held a grudge against her father for abandoning her. It was also the reason why he had never felt any special duty to the Moroi except for Lissa. Now he has a chance to contact his father. His mother, knowing that he is heading into a dangerous world, wants him to get all the help she can. While the show didn’t reveal much more about Rose’s father, the simple fact that there is now a way to connect with him means that season two will introduce him to viewers and add a new chapter to Rose’s life.

Meanwhile, Christian and Dimitri decide to stay back. It turns out that since his aunt died in a Strigoi attack, Christian is now the head of his family. He must now take over the reins of the Ozera family, while trying to find answers about his parents and reclaim his reputation. He’s also now one of the monks, which means he has a new path that could reveal more vampire secrets to him.

Although Dimitri wants to leave with Rose and Lissa, he stays behind to keep an eye on Tatiana. Despite everything that had happened, he and Tatiana were on pretty good terms the last time they saw each other. Now someone needs to be close to him to figure out what his plan really is. Dimitri can find a way to get to him and expose him, strip him of his power, and help Lissa regain the throne.

Is Andre Dead?

One of the biggest twists this season is the revelation of Andre’s fate. It turns out that he never died in the car accident that took the lives of Lissa’s family. Everyone believes that Andre died with his parents, but it turns out that Tatiana has been holding him captive all this time. He needed someone intimately familiar with the inner workings of the monarchy so that he could ascend the throne.

Knowing that his sister and the entire Dominion are in danger, Andre eventually escapes. But her reunion with Lissa is short-lived. He can only tell her that Tatya is the villain in the story. He gives her a chip, though Lissa has no idea what it means. Before he can tell her more, Christian’s mother attacks him. He would probably kill her, but when Christian arrives on the scene, he remembers her husband’s death. In revenge, she feeds her blood to Andrei and takes him away.

In the last shot of the episode, we see an injured Andre. When he opens his eyes, they are red, indicating that he is now a Strigoi. So technically he’s not dead, but it’s not good news for Lissa. His brother is as good as dead as a Strigoi, but he and Rose have a lot to figure out. Maybe along the way they’ll find a way to transform the Strigoi into their original versions. Until then, they’ll have to be very careful, because now that Tatiana is on the throne, the Strigoi are more powerful than ever.

Just because Christian’s mother was able to kill Andre didn’t mean he still needed Tatiana. Earlier, Tatiana announced that she could not kill Andre for now. Maybe the new Queen still has a few plans for her and it doesn’t matter if she’s Moroi or Strigoi. His presence is also dangerous for Lissa, as he could be used by Tatiana as a tool to force the young Dragomir out of hiding. Strigoi or not, Andre is still Lissa’s brother, and he’ll do anything to keep her alive. What lengths he will actually have to go to will only be revealed next season.
