‘DOTA: Dragon’s Blood’ Season 3: Ending, Explained – Is Filomena Dead Or Alive? Will There Be A Season 4?


Season 1 of “DOTA: Dragon’s Blood” introduced the protagonists, and the audience was shown a quick glimpse into the world of the dragons. Season 1 established the threat of Terrorblade, a terrible demon in pursuit of the souls of the dragons, to cause absolute havoc. Terrorblade successfully consumes one of the souls of the Eldwyrms, Uldorak. Uldorok had lost his senses to the madness and could not fight for his soul, so Terrorblade consumed it to become stronger. Slyrak, father of fire, another Eldwyrm, fights Terrorblade and, with the help of Davion, the Dragon Knight eventually defeats him and, before taking his last breath, hides his soul inside the Dragon Knight. Davion fused with the soul of Slyrak and remembers nothing of the incident. He is found by Mirana, the princess of the Moon, and Marci, her mute handmaiden. They set out to help Mirana find the Elven thief who had stolen the Moon Lotuses from Selemene’s temple.

Meanwhile, the Elven enclaves are destroyed by Luna, commandeering Selemene’s army to retrieve the stolen lotuses. Luna kills, Fymryn’s friends while they are unarmed. Fymryn, the lotus thief, barely escaped Luna with her powers. Luna continues on her rampage on the Enclaves, and she arrests the remaining elves only to convert them from being Someone’s followers to being Selemene’s followers. Fymryn takes a respite at the Invoker’s tower. Davion and Mirana enlist the help of Kaden, a fellow Dragon Knight, to help Davion understand himself more. However, upon being betrayed, the troops set out toward the tower of the Invoker, where the Invoker strikes a deal under the Shopkeeper’s Oath. Fymryn joins their troop to set things right with her clan and Mirana’s clan. Davion gets captured by the ones he called brothers. Fellow Dragon Knights cart him off to experiment with Slyrak and set him right.

“DOTA: Dragon’s Blood” Season 2 was the continuation of the first season. It starts with Davion being brought into the Dragon Knight Castle and shackled in chains while the father experiments on him. The father then uses Davion’s dragon blood to bring back his injured arm. He divulges his plans to a disguised Fymryn, who takes on Kaden’s appearance. Fymryn rushes to save Davion.

Meanwhile, the Terrorblade manipulates the dragons into attacking the stronghold. Davion, Bram, Kaden, and Fymryn barely escape, but the other dragon knights are killed. On the other hand, the Invoker captures Selemene and locks her in their daughter’s room. Luna, after being detached from the Goddess’s powers, finds herself bereft of her power, and so do her troops. They get ambushed by the Coedwei Elven Enclave and are saved by Mirana and Marci, who leads them to a Mercenary camp related to the Helio Imperium. While tending to the injured Luna and the other troops, the mercenary drugged them and carted them off to the palace for the bounty on their heads placed by the Emperor. As a sign of peace, Mirana takes her place as the rightful princess and prepares to marry the Emperor as a sign of peace. However, Mirana is shot by an arrow that plunges her soul into the world between life and death. She is comatose, and the kingdom is plunged into chaos. Simultaneously, Davion, Bram, Kaden, and Fymryn are rescued by Auroth, the dragon, and Rylai, her Elf-friend. Auroth passes the cold winter ring to Bram to keep him safe. After rejuvenating the troops, minus Rylai, they set forth toward the Helio Imperium Palace to meet with Lina, her sister, to find out more about the Eye of the Worldwyrm, the Solar God’s relic. They arrive at the nick of time for Davion to witness Miran getting shot. The Emperor refuses to hand over the Eye, and Slyrak takes over Davion’s rage. Slyvion kills the Emperor and helps Lina take over the throne. However, Mirana wakes up to be the rightful Empress, but while Lina confesses to Davion and while holding a meeting, Viceroy Kashurra kills Lina. He reveals his form as the Void and brandishes the Dawn Star as his weapon.

Kashurra unleashes his wrath, which later helps Mirana find the Solar Power and reclaim her position as a Goddess and the Empress of the Empire. Auroth and Marci lose their lives in the process, and the troop ventures to Foulfell to kill Terrorblade, only to find out that the Invoker has struck a deal with Terrorblade. While chaos was wreaking havoc in the Helium Emperor, Davion found out from Slyrak that the other Eldwyrms had been killed and their souls were stolen. The Invoker had stolen all the souls from Terrorblade in return for him capturing Selemene. “DOTA: Dragon’s Blood” Season 2 ends with Empress Mirana ruling over the Helio Empire.

Spoilers Ahead

‘DOTA: Dragon’s Blood’ Season 3: Plotline – What Is Book 3 About?

The season begins with the troops venturing toward Foulfell to defeat Terrorblade one last time. However, before the last battle, Fymryn becomes a Goddess Mene and helps the Elven Enclaves listen to reason after reclaiming Selemene’s position as her own. The Invoker strikes a deal with the Empress and helps Davion possess all the eldwyrm souls. He becomes a hybrid while using all of the powers, and they begin their fight with Terrorblade. Terrorblade first manipulates them and then traps them all in their personal nightmares, which are thwarted by Fymryn’s magic. Terrorblade is defeated, although at the cost of Davion’s life. The Invoker seized this opportunity to create a brand new world where his daughter Filomena is alive, and the troops have never met each other. Mirana finds herself in an uncomfortable present where her father is still alive, and Kashurra does not exist. It is a future where Mirana has not lost Davion or Marci. She goes to the oracle in search of answers and returns with all her previous memories. To set everything right, Mirana decides to pursue Davion from the beginning and accompanies him to meet Slyrak. She has an argument and understands that he is not the same Davion, so she sets off alone with Marci to have a discussion with Slyrak. Mirana has yet to awaken her powers, although she does awaken a semblance of her powers to defeat Kaden, who was already there to apprehend Slyrak.

Along the way, the rocks from the broken, mad Moon have started corrupting the rest of the denizens into madness. Filomena seems alive and intuitive, while Fymryn reigns over all elves as the Goddess of the Moon Mene. Filomena asks for an audience with her so as to stop the ongoing war between the Helio Imperium and the Elven Enclaves. Filomena searches for answers; however, the Invoker refuses to provide them. She searches Fymryn’s memories for the answers and finds out that this universe was not supposed to exist. They unite to defeat the Invoker and return the timeline to how it was previously. Davion reaches out to Mirana to change the time back. Mirana and Fymryn decide to rule the new world as goddesses.

Is Davion Dead Or Alive?

During their war with Terrorblade, Davion went through abysmal pain to host all of the souls of the Eldwyrms. He transformed into a hybrid and continued to fight with Terrorblade. However, in the heat of the moment, Terrorblade strikes him with a death blow. While giving a speech, Davion uses his last strength to simply kill Terrorblade while he was giving a speech. He dies, too, after having the last conversation with Mirana. While their attentions were diverted, the Invoker simply used a machine made from The Archronicus, a book with immeasurable knowledge, to turn back time and create a new world where the entities responsible for the numerous deaths were simply non-existent.

In this world, Davion has yet to meet Mirana. Their paths cross while the world is being repeated minus the entities. They meet at the same bar where they had met whilst in “DOTA: Dragon’s Blood” Season 1. However, Mirana tries to get Davion back on her team, but Davion remembers nothing of their precious memories. He does follow Mirana to Slyrak’s lair, albeit a little later, only to find both Slyrak and Kaden barely hanging on to their lives. The New World’s Kaden remembers everything at the absolute end and gifts Davion his sword. He returns home after a fight with Mirana, misunderstanding her, and encounters the Denizens, turning into zombies. While fighting, Davion gets pierced by a stray zombie and gets transported to the Void, where he meets Slyrak. Davion learns the truth about the world, and his memories return to him. With Slyrak’s soul residing once more in him, Davion reaches out to Mirana to undertake a journey back to the tower of the Invoker. This is where they meet Filomena, who joins their cause and helps them rally against her father. The Invoker transmits Mirana to the Void and freezes her as a punishment for going against him. He wanted her to watch as the Mad Moon breaks and the two rationalities of Radiant and Dire entities collapse.

Fymryn eventually saves her after failing to contain the Mad Moon fragments with the help of Filomena and accepts her, which ultimately breaks her from the frozen prison. Back on Earth, Davion and the rest of the troop, including Luna, square off with the Invoker. After defeating the Invoker together, Filomena asks Mirana to restore the world. She unites with Davion and restores the pillars by setting the Eldwyrm souls free as the guardians of the pillars. She then tearfully reunites with Davion for the last time and returns to when Davion dies. Therefore, Davion returns back to his original state after being killed. He is then taken back home by Kaden, who is alive in the old world. Things return to the state they were in before.

What Happened To The Old World And The New World?

In the second episode, the troop heads over to Foulfell to stand against Terrorblade for once and for all. They face and defeat Terrorblade, but lose Davion to him in the process. This whole incident, and every event leading up to the battle in Foulfell, happens in the Old World. In this world, Filomena had lost her life, and the Invoker had devoted himself to experiments to gain knowledge to have his revenge on Selemene and also gain his daughter back. In this world, Fymryn lost her friends and her close families to Luna and her Night Silverwood Warriors under the command of Selemene. Mirana had lost her parents to Viceroy Kashurra and had left the Empire to find her place among the Night Silverwood soldiers. She took Marci along with her, and that is how she met Luna. Therefore, while the fight was going on, the Invoker had already started his preparations to replace this world with a new one. He made Davion the sole target after making him the host of the other dragon souls that Terrorblade wanted. He set the stage and then introduced the machine to replace reality with another reality with the help of The Archronicus.

Foulfell was the stage of the Invoker’s plans. He then introduced a reality from all of the existing parallel realities where his daughter was healthy and alive. This new reality had the Mad Moon, the practical prison for the rationales of the Primordial Mind. They were tethered to their prison by the Invoker’s powers, but the Mad Moon seemed to collapse little by little. Other than this, the new reality had no Viceroy Shakurra, and thus Mirana’s father was alive, although consumed in madness after Mirana’s mother’s death. Marci was alive too, but Kaden reached the lair of Slyrak earlier than in the previous world. Davion had yet to make contact with Slyrak, so his soul was intact without any interference from Slyrak. However, the fragments from the collapsing Mad Moon hit the surface of the Earth faster, corrupting any and every Denizen around with madness. 

The Mad Moon was directly related to the destruction of each reality. The Realities before the pre-existing old world and the existing new world had eventually been destroyed by the heroes’ receiving tasks from the rationalities after the Primordial Mind had broken itself into two separate rationales, Radiant and Dire. The Radiant and Dire constantly fought inside their prison, corroding the surface of the Mad Moon and launching some of the fragments towards Earth. These fragments attracted the denizens and the heroes and consumed their minds with madness, ultimately turning them into zombie-like creatures who killed each other without any control. So in the new reality, Mad Moon finally collapsed due to the Invoker’s fastening the corrosion at an alarming rate and destroying the Mad Moon to destroy the new reality because he wanted to stay safe with Filomena and destroy everybody else.

Filomena And Her Role In The Chaos That Followed.

Filomena was the beloved daughter of the Invoker, and her mother was Selemene, who left their home to claim her throne as the Goddess of the Moon. A young Filomena lost her life after being riddled with an unexplained disease. The Invoker has spent every living moment dedicated to finding the cure since the time Filomena was discovered with the disease. After consulting every healer and curer possible, the Invoker had to take Filomena to Selemene in the hopes that she would heal her daughter. Selemene was always consumed by greed and refused to help Filomena until she worshiped her as a Goddess, causing Filomena to lose her life hating Selemene.

After Filomena lost her life, the Invoker plotted and planned to bring her back. He seized every single opportunity to set up the stage to successfully bring her back. He manipulated Fymryn after she dedicated her life to bringing back Mene, the previous Goddess of the Moon, killed by Selemene. Fymryn was actually the reincarnated Goddess Mene, although she had no idea about it and had always believed that her powers stemmed simply from the blessings of the Goddess. As she reached out to the Invoker to bring back Mene, he started preparing her to take her position back from Selemene. In the last season, the Invoker sent Fymryn to reclaim her rightful position as Goddess Mene and rise for her remaining Elven families before she could fight in the last battle against Terrorblade. After taking away the spark required to become a Goddess from Selemene, Fymryn succeeded in becoming the Goddess, and Selemene dispersed as a spirit in her arms.

In the new reality, after the Invoker succeeded in establishing it, Filomena was alive and was partaking in understanding her curiosities by conducting experiments. She came across certain fragments that she experimented on, which showed her some curious results. The slugs attracted to the stone consumed the new slugs introduced to the stone later. She came to a conclusion and was close to finding the truth. However, the Invoker interfered and stopped her from going further. With the Mad Moon slowly collapsing and the Invoker’s power keeping it at bay, Filomena coincidentally discovers it while searching for her father to share some of her findings. The Invoker, unable to contain such great power, was on the verge of collapsing when Filomena rushed to save him. He refuses to tell her anything and asks her to master The Archronicus before she goes any further. However, their Goddess, Mene/Fymryn, refuses prayer due to her raging mind. Fymryn’s mind is plagued with the memories from the previous world and is constantly at war with the new memories, leading to nightmares. Filomena offers to search her mind to offer her some solace and also answer Filomena’s burning questions, which her father won’t answer.

She then discovers the previous world, the old world, and what her father has done, and she sets out to right the wrong. She helps the troops fight against her father’s actions, who, upon discovering that Filomena knew the truth, lifted his magic, which was holding the Mad Moon together, and let it collapse. Filomena understood that her father simply wanted her alive. However, the disease that caused her death had manifested yet again. The Invoker could not stop its spread and thus was compelled to listen to Filomena and set the reality back to the previous one. The last episodes were a continuation of the old world after the new world met its destruction.

‘DOTA: Dragon’s Blood’ Season 3: Ending Explained – Is Filomena Dead Or Alive? Will There Be A Season 4?

After setting the world back to its rightful reality, Filomena no longer existed. Mirana and Davion went back to their original states after returning the souls of the Eldwyrms and setting up the pillars. They shared some intimacy before Davion lost her life to set the reality straight. Fymryn helped Mirana regain some stability and helped rule the world together with her as the Goddess of the Moon and the Solar God. Mirana gifts the Archronicus to the Shopkeeper as a keepsake and instructs him to not give it to anybody under any circumstance. She simply smiled and touched her stomach when the Shopkeeper asked if she had found everything that she was looking for. This line was a throwback to “DOTA: Dragon’s Blood” Season 1, when a disgruntled Mirana had come to the Shopkeeper for help in tracking down the lotuses, thus returning Mirana to the beginning after the end of a very happening chapter in her life. It awfully seems like the Shopkeeper is a seer and his oath is binding because of his innate powers greater than the Gods and Goddesses and even the Invoker. This particular ending scene, however, gives off the feeling that Mirana is, in fact, with a child. The hints of a child can be the beginning of a new season. “DOTA: Dragon’s Blood” Season 4 could focus easily on how Mirana raises the child of a Dragon Knight, the host of many dragons, and the Solar God, the Empress of the Helio Imperium.

In the last episode, there is a quick peek at Filomena healing her wounds away under the moonlight while wearing an inconspicuous robe, sheltering half of her identity. Now, during the battle, Terrorblade seemed to offer the Invoker a deal to create a new reality where Filomena would always be healthy and alive. The Invoker had refused part of the deal where it required the new reality to be a reality shaped by Terrorblade. The Invoker had quietly infused the same reality and brought back Filomena successfully without giving in to Terrorblade’s reality. This sneak peek indicates the possibility of Season 4 of “DOTA: Dragon’s Blood,” where there might be an explanation for this tangent, explaining how Filomena came back to life even after not existing in this reality. It could be that the old world is not the present world yet again, but a conjoined reality manifested by The Invoker, who simply wanted his daughter alive and healthy and could go to any lengths to make it happen. Therefore, there might be a chance for the fallen character to regain life, or they might simply not.
