Children of Dune: Part Three

But if there is a sequel, I'm sure I'll be back to recap it. For Muad'dib instructs us that prescience is immutable, and my own Secher Nibw can never be ignored.

Children of Dune: Part Three We pan up from Leto to Ghanima and Farad'n, standing high atop that rocky ledge at Sietch Tabr, and discussing the strange ways of the Atreides family. "He runs and runs and runs and runs," says Ghanima, of her brother. "And when he's exhausted himself, he returns to me and puts his head in my lap." Sing it with me kids: Yeah. I'll just bet he does. "But what of our marriage?" wonders Farad'n, proving to be ever so slow on the uptake. "As my mother was not wife," answers Ghanima, "you shall never be husband." Farad'n accepts that fate, and even seems sort of happy about it, although that's probably just because he's confusing "concubine" with "combine," and thinks he's going to be spending most of his time harvesting wheat. "One of us had to accept the agony," sighs Alia, as the camera swoops dramatically around her. "And Leto was always the stronger." And then, as always, it's Irulan who gets the final word: "History is written on the sands of Arrakis," she narrates, over one last planet shot. "A chapter has ended, swept away by the whirlwind. One door has closed, but another has opened. And on the other side? Our future." You know, it probably doesn't bode well for any further sequels that they've essentially elected to ignore most of the implications of The Golden Path here. And do you know what else doesn't bode well for sequels? The fact that, this time, we're never told that the saga of Dune is far from over. And to be perfectly honest, I'm not really upset about that right now. But if there is a sequel, I'm sure I'll be back to recap it. For Muad'dib instructs us that prescience is immutable, and my own Secher Nibw can never be ignored.
