This is it, the end. Cerebus dies. Leaping from the bed, he stumbles on the stairs of his bed, they tip and he falls head forward. Farting on the way down, and thanking God for that, he lands head first and breaks his neck. We see scenes of him from various stages of his life flash before his eyes, then his spirit (young and wearing the vest) steps from his body.
A great light strikes down and he sees so many that have passed before. He’s a bit afraid, until he sees Ham, Jaka and Bear, beckoning to him. He’s delighted, and transforms into Rabbi so that he might fly up there. Halfway there, he realises that Rick is not there, and therefore it must not be Heaven/where he wants to go. He tries to fight it, calls out to God, but he is sucked in.
Yes, it’s anti-climatic, but it couldn’t be anything else. As prophesied, he dies alone, unloved.
At the end of the month, I’ll have a couple posts talking about the series as a whole. Thank you for riding along with me.
