A Discovery of Witches has come to an end. The Season 3 finale is the series finale, and it’s time to break down everything that happened.

There was a lot to take care of in the A Discovery of Witches Season 3 finale. Diana needed to save Matthew from Benjamin, Ysebeau needed to protect her grandchildren, and the Book of Life needed to be put back together.

Ysebeau made sure her grandchildren were kept safe as much as she could. She understands there is a danger to Diana being a witch, but she trusts Diana. It was clear before the Christening to all of us that Ysebeau is over the prejudice and has welcomed Diana into her family.

It’s enough to keep the babies safe for now, but Diana will be needed for the rest. Diana has something more important to deal with first.

Diana deals with Satu

Diana, Gallowglass, Miriam, and Baldwin head to Poland, which is where Benjamin has Matthew. Diana realizes that it is her fight alone and prevents the others from helping. That’s when she runs into Satu.

Of course, we had to have this witchy showdown. From the beginning, Satu has believed she is the all-powerful witch in the prophecy. However, Diana is mightier. Refusing to kill her, Diana spellbinds Satu and leaves her behind.

Diana needs to get to a dying Matthew. She works her way to the 10th knot and uses it to kill Benjamin. The group can get a dying Matthew back to the Sept-Tours where Sarah helps to heal him back to full strength. Gallowglass also survives, heading off into the distance alone once more.

The Book of Life on A Discovery of Witches

With all that handled, it’s time to put the Book of Life together. She shows it to the Congregation, showing that the tree makes it clear that humans, daemons, vampires, and witches all need to work together. They are all connected.

That means daemon DNA is necessary. Vampire DNA is necessary. They can’t keep threatening to wipe each other out.

However, they need to deal with the blood rage. Well, it turns out this could be linked to daemon DNA, something that Diana and Matthew actually have. If vampires with blood rage sire humans with enough daemon DNA the blood rage manifests, and Weavers are descended from witch-daemon unions. It explains everything that’s been happening over time, including witches losing their powers and daemons with poor mental health issues. It’s all to do with the declining daemon DNA, and that needs to be fixed.

That means a change at the council. Gerbert isn’t happy about it and tries to fight against Diana, but Agatha stands by Diana’s side. With enough support, Agatha is placed at the head of the Congregation.

We’re still left with a few questions. Gerbert is still alive, with Diana making it clear that his time will come. So, he is still a threat to the Congregation, the various species, and Diana’s babies. Does this mean we could see a continuation at some point?
