Although it was a short life for ‘Legend of the Seeker’, two seasons were enough for the show to capture the fans in a world of magic and fantasy.

‘Legend of the Seeker’ ending
Two seasons and multiple end-of-the-world situations later, ABC’s ‘Legend of the Seeker’ ended without a warning. The season and series finale rolled out in the “Tears” episode and closed the story’s arc with a confession, a death, and the Keeper in the flesh. The finale episode had to bear the heavy responsibility of the “Stone of Tears” plot ending on a satisfactory note while tying up the loose ends. So, we see most of the characters who have been a part of the show reunite for one last time. The Keeper, Darken Rahl with Mord-Sith, the Sisters of the Dark, and Sister Nicci joined in for the finale.
Breaking down the ending of ‘Legend o the Seeker’, we see that the Keeper is frustrated after being failed by everyone and, therefore, takes the charge himself. The two-part finale episode has Darken Rahl capture and break Cara. Trying to snap Cara back into her senses and the good side, Zedd carries out a spell.
However, things work out for the worse as the spell takes everyone to an alternate universe where Cara has never been a Mord-Sith. Zedd finds Cara, Kahlan, and Richard beside him while fighting a team of Banelings in Ulgoloth. As they proceed further, the Keeper opens a crack before them. Richard succeeds in jumping across the rift and moves forward towards the “Pillars of Creation” while the rest of the party try to figure a way out.
With the final moments approaching, we see Kahlan killing Richard, as the Keeper carries the Stone into the Underworld. On realising what she has done, Kahlan asks Cara to give Richard “the breath of life”. While Kahlan’s tears conjure up a new “Stone of Tears”, Richard receives the “breath of life” and is brought back from the dead. The guys hurry to place the new “Stone of Tears” in the “Pillars of Creation”. They succeed and just like that, Rahl is defeated. Richard gets his sight back, the world is saved and it’s a happy ending for everyone. Well, almost everyone.
Bridget Regan on the series wrapping up
One thing that we are grateful about is that the ending of ‘Legend of the Seeker’ was just and definitely a convincing one. There were so many ways where it could have gone kaput, but hey, it worked! ‘Legend of the Seeker’ star Bridget Regan, spoke to “TV Guide” about the exhausting but incredible finale of the show. She also commented on how the ending of ‘Legend of the Seeker’ felt final and skilfully wrapped up.
“At the end of season 1, we all thought after we read the scripts it felt like we were done. Everything was wrapped up and it was completed, but I think it’s something that mirrored the books in that each book as a series is kind of wrapped up, but then there’s always what would happen next? It does wrap up in a way and it’s really culminating at the end of the world and us winning or losing”.
‘Legend of the Seeker’ cancelled for real
We had a short but meaningful relationship with ‘Legend of the Seeker’. It was impossible to process the news of the season 2 finale being the series ending for ‘Legend of the Seeker’. Although, an alternative platform was being sought for actively, especially with fans chanting “Save our Seeker”, the show stood no chance.
Bridget Regan said,
“The people that know the show absolutely love it … I’m on Twitter and I don’t get to read everything people write, but you see people write ‘Save our Seeker, Save our Seeker’ and people have told me about the efforts, and honestly, I’m with them and I’m behind them. I think the show has only gotten better and better, but we didn’t have the best airtimes”.
