Newt travels to Hogwarts to fulfill with Dumbledore and presents the vial from Grindelwald. The vial was a blood pact made between Dumbledore and Grindelwald, the rationale why Dumbledore had been holding again. He says that he may be capable to destroy it. At his base Nurmengard in Austria, Grindelwald presents Credence a wand and tells him his true identification. Credence is Aurelius Dumbledore, Albus’ brother, and the one one who can kill him.

The Ending

The ending of the films has left the entire group of magic-loving Potterheads in confusion and doubt. At Nurmengard in Austria, Grindelwald tries to realize Credence’s belief. He presents him a wand and divulges his true identification. Based on Albus, there’s a legend in his household that, ‘a phoenix will come to assistance from a Dumbledore in want’. Grindelwald receits this assertion and takes the chick that Credence has been conserving with him. By magic, he transforms the fowl into an previous Phoenix. And at last, in a grand second, he reveals that Credence is, actually, a Dumbledore. He offers him a reputation: Aurelius Dumbledore and tells that he would be the one to battle and kill his brother, Albus. However how? How may Credence be Albus’ brother, and even when he was, how may Grindelwald have recognized?

There are two theories the fanbase is buzzing with. The primary one proposes that Credence will not be straight associated to Albus however via his Obscurus. Within the Deathly Hallows, the seventh guide within the Harry Potter collection, Albus is revealed to have two siblings: Aberforth and Ariana. We additionally know that Ariana killed her mom in an accident when she was 9 and died in a three-way twin at fourteen. She can also be recognized to have unstable energy. When the primary instalment of Implausible Beasts got here, and the idea of Obscurus was dropped at gentle, many believed that Ariana was, actually, an Obscurus. This has stayed round since. Additionally, we all know youngster being Obscurus not often survives until the age of ten, however Credence is much older. How may he nonetheless maintain his Obscurus?

The speculation goes: Ariana was certainly an Obscurus, and when she died, the Obscurus freed and hooked up itself to a brand new host — Credence. This very properly explains why Albus and Credence might be associated. Their energy ranges should match, and that is why Grindelwald needs Credence to battle Albus.

One other idea means that Grindelwald is mendacity! We should not overlook that he’s a grasp manipulator and really persuasive. He has no means of understanding Credence is Dumbledore or not. Within the first instalment of the film, Grindelwald is searching for an Obscurus. The identification of the Obscurus doesn’t matter to him. He additionally doesn’t know the identification of Credence and tells him he’s a squib. Within the second half, Grimmson murders Credence’s nanny, possibly as a result of Grindelwald doesn’t need him to know his actual identification. In the long run, he’s the one to remodel the chick right into a phoenix, which can very properly be part of his manipulation. He offers Credence what he needs: an identification, and will get what he needs: an Obscurus combating Albus. Nevertheless, in J. Okay. Rowling’s personal phrases, “Every part you assume you understand on the finish of the film might not be the case.”
