(Warning: This post contains spoilers for “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” Season 2 through the finale)
What the heaven just happened?
If you’ve already binged your way through “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” Season 2, then you probably have just as many (if not more) questions than we do.
While TheWrap may not have the answers, “Sabrina” star Chance Perdomo gave us at least one: Ambrose’s fate come Season 3.
At the end of the Part 2 finale, titled “The Mephisto Waltz,” Ambrose (Perdomo) and Prudence (Tati Gabrielle) leave the Academy of Unseen Arts in search of Father Blackwood (Richard Coyle), who has run off with Prudence’s baby half-siblings, twins Judith and Judas.
Prudence and Ambrose plan to save the little ones and kill Faustus — her father and his father figure — who fled after attempting to murder the members of the Church of Night upon realizing he was going to lose his status to Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka), now that it’s been revealed she’s the Dark Lord’s daughter.
“And once the twins are safe and sound, then I shall seek my true destiny as a witch,” Ambrose says, as he and Prudence leave the Academy, armed with swords and bows and arrows.
In the interview above, Perdomo gives us a little more intel on where exactly we can expect to find Ambrose on Season 3, after he’s made this declaration.
“I think [showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa] has kind of kept that under wraps, the overreaching arc. But he’s told us bits about our characters, and I can say Ambrose is seeking power, he’s learned new power — but not necessarily from the mindset or perspective that he had in the past that got him into trouble,” Perdomo says.
“He’s there more to protect his family, because the threats are just looming and they’re getting bigger and bigger,” he continued. “And he feels, ‘I need to be able to come into my own as my own man’ — because he’s always been seeking father figures, like Blackwood, who have let him down — ‘and I need to be able to protect what’s close to my heart.’ So he kinda goes off and comes back different — shall we say.”
Welp, Ambrose and Prudence’s problems might be the least of everyone’s concerns right now, as the season ended with Sabrina trying to convince the gang to go save her boyfriend, Nick (Gavin Leatherwood), from Hell — the place he was taken by Lilith after trapping Lucifer a.k.a. Sabrina’s father inside his own body.
“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” Season 2 is now streaming on Netflix.
