The Sandman Season 1 – How does Lord Morpheus end up in a cage?
Sir Roderick Burgess and Dr. Hathaway kidnapping “Death” goes drastically wrong and they kidnap Lord Morpheus, the King of Dreams instead. As a result, Sir Roderick puts Lord Morpheous in a cage so strong that no one can escape unless someone falls asleep nearby. As for Sir Roderick’s hope that his son will be resuscitated, well, that never happens.
Years pass and Morpheus remains locked in the cage; Although Sir Roderick’s son Alex wants Morpheus free, Sir Roderick forbids him to do so. More time passes and a “sleep fever” grips the watch world. After Alex is caught over whether or not to release Lord Morpheous, Alex and Sir Roderick have an argument. And Lord Morpheous is powerless as he watches Alex accidentally kill his father.
But since Alex is a lot friendlier than his father, does that mean he’ll free Morpheus from the cage soon? nope Although there seems to be almost a friendship between Alex and Lord Morpheous, Alex holds off on rescuing Lord Morpheous. In the end, Lord Morpheous finally breaks free after being imprisoned for over a century when one of the guards watching him falls asleep.
Lord Morpheous sneaks into the guard’s dream, takes control of his body and shoots the cage. Free at last, Lord Morpheous can end “Sleep Fever”. But Morpheus takes revenge on Alex and enchants him with eternal sleep. But does it end there? nope It later becomes clear that Morpheus’ sisters Desire and Despair played a role in his capture!
