Eternals Ending Explain: What Was the Final Secret of Eternals?

Like another recent Marvel film, Shang-Chi, Zhao’s film begins thousands of years in the past, in 5,000 BC, when the godlike Celestial Arishem sends the 10 Eternals to destroy the Deviants (aka muddy, robot-looking monsters). Following this, they live essentially separate lives for 500 years, anticipating Arishem’s return.

When (gasp!) the Deviants unexpectedly return in the present day, strong Eternal Sersi’s new life with human boyfriend Dan (Kit Harington) is disrupted.

So she and fellow Eternals Sprite (Lia McHugh) and Ikaris (Richard Madden, portraying Sersi’s ex-lover) decide to meet with Eternals commander Ajak (Salma Hayek), only to discover that she has been murdered by Kro (Bill Skarsgrd).

When Arishem reveals to Sersi that the Eternals were not sent to Earth to safeguard it, the situation takes a turn for the worst. Instead, they were tasked with preparing the world for the “Emergence” (the birth of a new celestial named Tiamut), which will eradicate all life on Earth.

Terrified, Sersi and her companions embarked on a mission to reunite the last Eternals and preserve humanity from the Emergence. But, guess what? There is also another major turn: Ikaris admits that Ajak had told him about the Emergence six days prior, but he decided to join with Arishem and is her actual killer. After Sprite joins Ikaris out of unrequited love for him, the other Eternals are left to battle against them.

In the end titular team of the movie, Eternals divides into two groups to celebrate their victory over their Celestial commanders at the conclusion.

In their spacecraft, Thena (Angelina Jolie), Makkari (Lauren Ridloff), and Druig (Barry Keoghan) set out to search the universe for other Eternals that the Celestials might be exploiting.


While Phaistos (Brian Tyree Henry), a changed Sprite (Lia McHugh), Sersi (Gemma Chan), Kingo (Kumail Nanjiani), and the others remain on Earth.

In other words, for a few days, it appears that everything is going well for the Eternals. But in the last seconds of the movie, a furious Arishem shows up and drags Sersi, Kingo, and Phaistos into his arms.
