November 20, 2021

The third Act of Arcane is now available with the final three episodes on Netflix. And fans who’ve watched the finale are trying to break down the ending of Season 1.

Warning: This article contains major spoilers for Arcane Season 1.

Riot Games premiered Arcane on Netflix with the release of Act 1 on November 6th, 2021. The first Act introduced us to several League of Legends characters from Piltover and Zaun, including Vi, Powder (Jinx), Singed, Jayce, Caitlyn, and more. However, if there was one character who everyone loved in Act 1, it was Vander.

Unfortunately, in Episode 3, Vander dies protecting Vi from Silco. In his final moments, Vander uses the Shimmer so that he could Silco, but he uses those borrowed minutes to get Vi away from the explosion.

Is Vander Alive in Arcane?

Of course, we saw Vander dying in the first Act of Arcane; however, hardcore fans of League of Legends know that the show several times hinted at Vander being Warwick, a playable champion in the game. However, if Vander is actually Warwick, he can’t be dead in the prequel TV show but alive in the LoL’s lore. So, it’s no surprise that many fans think that the “Hound of the Underground” will eventually come back as Warwick. Well, interestingly, the final episode of Arcane Season 1 actually teases Warwick.

In the final episode, Jinx launches her rocket exactly where the Council members are having their meeting. That’s when we see a glimpse of several characters, including Sevika, Jayce, Mel Medarda, and many more. However, at that moment, we also see Singed sitting on his chair and looking at Warwick’s claws.

In LoL’s lore, Singed turns a man into Warwick through experiments in his lab. And after watching the Arcane finale, there’s a high chance that Singed got hold of Vander’s body and experimented on him for all these years.

Warwick only remembers a girl’s scream from his past in the lore, and we all know how Vander was motivated by his love for Vi and Jinx.

Anyway, with Warwick’s tease in the final episode, it’s for sure that we’ll see him in the next season of Arcane. So, we’ll get our answers about Vander and Warwick in Season 2.
