Season 1 just ended for Riot and Netflix production of Arcane. Creative design and superb story provide a primer for a brilliant season Finale. We explain the Riot X Netflix Arcane season 1 ending.
Riot and Netflix have created a gem in a crowd of unmemorable Series. Arcane has a brilliant storyline and a very thoughtful art style. A more traditional approach has been sought after.
In an era where creators are running out of ideas and making remakes, Arcane feels extremely fresh. The portrayal of individual characters from Piltover and Lanes of the Undercity is astounding.
This Saturday at Midnight Pacific, return to Runeterra for the final Act of #Arcane.

Arcane breaks your heart then, picks you back up and drops you to a new low every iteration. The Season Finale was the best cliffhanger since Game of Thrones Season 4. It was called, “The Children” and Season 4 Ep 10.
You can love it, you can hate it, but you cannot ignore it. Arcane has set a new standard for animation businesses around the world. More importantly for the subscription-based studios.
Note: SPOILERS AHEAD. Please do not read, if you have not seen any acts of Arcane yet. It is highly recommended you watch the series before delving into this transcript.
The setting for the jaw-dropping Arcane Season Finale.

Piltover and Undercity. Progress versus organised crime. Riches over humanity. The dream of the Nation of Zaun has eluded many over years in the Lanes of the Undercity.
There was a time when Vander, the caretaker and Silco, the crime lord were brothers in arms. Vander had betrayed Silco, in the name of peace, so that the eternal war between Lanes and Enforcers would stop.
How Silco revived last time is a mystery. Could be determination or Shimmer from Baron Nashor. But, Dr Singed might have some keys to bring back the Eye of Zaun.
He did what was impossible by everyone in Undercity- “Bring Piltover to its knees”. But, realising Zaun might still take years if not decades.
Jinx AKA Powder and Violet AKA Vi seem to be stuck in an eternal loop of betrayal and deceit. Silco played his cards well.
What happened in the Season Ending? Arcane Finale explained.
Finished Arcane last night, and it is definitely one of my favorite shows ever. The drama is engrossing, the world is enchanting, the characters are all deeply developed and interesting.
Even if you’re not a League of Legends fan, Arcane is just a great show, period. pic.twitter.com/JgQwmqKmTe

Jinx seemed fed up with everyone’s indecision. Now, she finally wanted to take the lead. She wanted to make one final offer to everyone she loved.
But, alas. Fear and Hope can turn someone blind to logic. Caitlyn‘s stunt released a monster that Vi wanted to make peace with.
Powder had to choose between her old self and Jinx. Killing Silco brought her back to her senses. She chose Jinx. That is the Riot x Netflix Arcane ending of Season 1.
To send the Ultimate message, she launched a Cluster missile, weaponised with Hextech gemstone. The destruction will be shown in the opener of Season 2.
So what’s next from Netflix? Who will be the protagonist of the Arcane iteration?
Ready yourselves, friends. Season 2 of Arcane is now in production.

The destruction will kill the entire council but, Jayce and Medarda. Caitlyn’s mother, Queen Medarda and thousands of others will perish.
This will ensue another Civil war. The peace that Silco and Jayce brokered would have never come to fruition anyway. Because, as Dom Toretto says-“family”.
Silco was a father to Jinx. As was Vander to Vi. Hence, the cycle repeats again. Be prepared for some wicked battles.
