After escaping the cage in which he was imprisoned for nearly a century, Lord Morpheous learns that the realm he once called home has now turned into a wreck and ruin. Lord Morpheous faces many difficult decisions on his journey to restore the world to what it was. Examples are when he has to take Gregory in, take the sand away from Johanna’s ex-girlfriend Rachel and leave her to face certain death. But one of the toughest decisions he has to make is whether or not to kill Rose Walker. And as the first season of The Sandman, Viewers may be wondering: will he actually kill Rose Walker, or will he find a way to ensure her survival?
The Sandman Season 1 – Does Lord Morpheous Kill Rose Walker?
Lord Morpheous is not a typical hero in the first season of The Sandman. With a little more depth than a typical “leading man,” there are times when audiences question Lord Morpheous’ actions. Nothing more than the emotional and tragic death of the dragon Gregory. (Was there a more heartbreaking moment on the show I don’t think).
But when Lord Morpheous learns of Rose Walker, a dream vortex, he soon comes face to face with her as she enters the realm of dreams. Although Lord Morpheous initially agrees to help Rose find her brother who has been missing for years, he ultimately decides to kill her as he cannot keep the Dreamwhirl alive.
And in the season finale, The Corinthian Rose even tells that Lord Morpheous intends to kill her. However, Rose isn’t dumb enough to trust The Corinthian and she doesn’t pay much attention to his claims. But the threat of Lord Morpheous remains, and when it comes down to it, Rose’s pregnant friend Lyta believes Rose is strong enough to kill Lord Morpheous. Ultimately, a standoff ensues between Lord Morpheous and Rose, where it seems only one will survive. However, Rose’s grandmother Unity, a descendant of the Dreamwhirl, persuades Lord Morpheous to take his own life instead, thus saving Rose. In the end, Lord Morpheous doesn’t kill Rose, and she can live a happy life. When we last see Rose, she has written a book that appears in the Dreaming Library.
You can watch this series with a Netflix subscription.
