The Ending of The Descent 2: What It Means in Reality
A pleasant ending is swiftly stolen away from the characters and the audience at the end of The Descent 2’s climax. Aside from being a frightening old man, Ed Oswald is actually a crawler’s best friend. The joyful endings in great horror films are rare, and The Descent 2 is no exception.
The Descent 2’s epilogue shows Oswald attempting to feed Rios to the monsters, implying a degree of responsibility on his part. Unlike the rescuers, Oswald has a personal connection to these creatures and is more concerned about their survival than they are.
In fact, it’s more than probable that his efforts to help the crew gain access to his mineshaft are nothing more than a way for him to feed his animals. In the sequel to The Descent, he had no desire to assist Sarah and the rest of the group.
What Happens to Sarah in The Descent 2?
Since Sarah has conquered so much in Neil Marshall’s first Descent to survive, it’s doubly heartbreaking in this sequel to watch her so near to death. A strong sense of honor and family eventually gets the better of Sarah, who is the most experienced in dealing with crawlers.
By capturing the attention of the crawlers for long enough to ensure Rios’ safety, Sarah makes a great action. It’s clear that Sarah and Rios will not be able to return from this journey.
In order to set the stage for a possible third chapter of The Descent, the death of Sarah isn’t revealed clearly in the film. In the absence of a continuation of this story, Sarah is probably dead already.
It’s the Sequel to “the Descent.”
Dan and Cath, two of the professional spelunkers prepared for the rescue expedition, are the first to be killed by the crawlers as they attempt to locate Sarah’s pals. To keep Sarah from running away, Sheriff Vaines is chained to her so that he and the other crawlers would fall to their deaths, but Sarah will be spared.
A swarm of crawlers has blocked the way out of these caverns for Sarah, Juno, and Rios. A dying Greg attempts to save himself by grabbing onto Juno, who screams in despair. Their secret is blown. Crawlers have taken out Greg, but the girls are on their own.
Sarah is powerless to save Juno, who gets slashed open by the main crawler and dies as a result. At least Rios will be able to escape if Sarah attracts the rest of the crawlers’ attention to herself.
It is tragic that Ed Oswald, who is the mine shaft operator, catches and throws Rios back down to her death. Rios isn’t actually executed, but when she regains consciousness, the first thing she sees is an enraged crawler.
What Happens in The Second Half of ‘the Descent’?
The Descent’s Sarah returns as a group of young women go missing on a caving trip in the Appalachian Mountains in 2005’s critically acclaimed horror film.
Incoherent and half-crazed as she stumbles out of the cave system, Sarah is distressed and covered in the blood of her missing friends. Sheriff Vaines (Gavan O’Herlihy) is skeptical of Sarah’s explanation of events and believes her illness conceals even darker truths.
To aid in the search for her fellow explorers, Vaines drags Sarah (Krysten Cummings) down into the caverns with the support of his cave rescue squad, which also includes Dan (Douglas Hodge), Greg (Joshua Dallas), and Cath (Anna Skellern).
Natalie Mendoza, who previously played Juno in “The Descent: Part 2,” joins Macdonald in the sequel. Along with Krysten Cummings and Douglas Hodge from “Mansfield Park,” the cast includes Anna Skellern, Gavan O’Herlihy, and Gavan O’Herlihy from “Seven Days of Grace.”
