The finale brings many truths amongst action-packed sequences to round off the series nicely — there’s certainly a lean towards a continuation; we are hoping the comic book adaptation commissions further seasons.

This recap of Netflix anime series Trese season 1, episode 6 — ending explained — contains spoilers.

Read the review. 

All the events have led to this finale, which comes with a lot of exposition and action.

The finale opens with two boys, Basilio and Crispin, fighting over a mask — they both want to try it on. Alexandra walks in and tells both boys to stop. Anton then walks in and advises against hitting his daughter, and warns that she can hit back. He reminds them that family protects each other. Alexandra is irked by her father’s words, but Anton tells her that these kids need their guidance — she tells her to trust herself.

The battle to stop the apocalypse

And this brings the episode to the present; Talagbusao tells Alexandra Trese that her path has led her to him. They both exchange a war of words, with Alexandra wanting to send Talagbusao back to the hell he came from. She gathers her group to fight the God as the apocalypse looms. Bagyon Lektro reveals himself as a traitor, siding with Talagbusao. Lektro claims he was betrayed because his one and only son was killed.

Talagbusao planned this all along

Talagbusao proves too strong at first, with everyone, including Alexandra, struggling to hurt him. With Bagyon Lektro dealt with, Alexandra tells Talagbusao to surrender. Basilio and Crispin tell Talagbusao that they will not listen to him, regardless if he is their father. Talagbusao uses his powers to put his sons under his control, and they grab Alexandra. He explains that despite Alexandra’s father’s efforts to stop him, he did not stem humanity’s lust for war. He allowed his children to be put under her family’s care and plotted silently. Talagbusao asks Alexandra to follow her destiny.

The prophecy

And then Trese season 1, episode 6 goes into a period of exposition, explaining how Alexandra has ended up under the threat of this God.

Talagbusao reveals that she is Alexandra Trese, the sixth child of the sixth child. The one foretold to tip the balance between the Underworld and the world of men to preside over one and destroy the other — he explains that this is her father’s prophecy that was passed down through the ages; in an expedition, her father found a babaylan seer. Anton thought he could stop the prophecy. Talagbusao talks of a fifth child — a fearsome warrior that would conquer both worlds — and then afterward, Talagbusao becomes the God of War. Anton formed a Council between humans and the supernatural world to stop the prophecy.

The truth about Alexandra’s father

Talagbusao explains further; Anton’s partner became pregnant with twins — the fifth and the sixth child; the first destined to conquer, the other to bring balance — these are the children from the prophecy that Anton feared, so he tried to rid the prophecy. Anton sacrificed Alexandra’s sister. Alexandra refuses to believe it, but Talagbusao’s story is convincing.

Flashbacks reveal that Anton refused to sacrifice Alexandra despite Council pressure; he committed genocide on his own allies — innocent blood was spilled for Anton’s lies. Talagbusao calls Alexandra’s father a manipulator.

The death of Captain Guerrero

Talagbusao asks Alexandra to follow her destiny and bring judgment. Alexandra refuses to, feeling this is genocide. Captain Guerrero tries to save Alexandra by firing weapons at Talagbusao, but the God grabs him by the neck and kills him without effort. Alexandra is devastated. Interestingly, before the Captain died, he hailed that Anton was a good man or tried to be.

“I am a Trese”

And then, the moment arrives where Alexandra overcomes the villain.

Alexandra sees a vision of her father — he tells her that it is time — he gives her the dagger and tells her to look to her family. It’s time for Alexandra to form her own path. She enters the tree. Alexandra opens her eyes and tells Talagbusao that she is not her sister or her father, but she is a Trese; her eyes light up, and Basilio and Crispin let go of her — they are no longer under Talagbusao’s spell.

The ending of Trese season 1, episode 6

Alexandra tells Basilio and Crispin to distract Talagbusao and shoot bullets around him to forge a circle — she plans to use magic. Alexandra goes up from behind Talagbusao, cuts off his hand to take the blade, slices her hand, and slams her hand on the circle, which then lights up. Talagbusao sees that she has the dragon’s blood and tells Alexandra she will be imprisoned with him, but unfortunately, it’s the only way Alexandra can defeat the God. Alexandra is now lost in a desolate world, and she remembers her times with her family. She approaches the tree, and she remembers her family will always be beside her. Alexandra mutters, “We’re home, Alex,” and then the series ends.

The finale brings many truths amongst action-packed sequences to round off the series nicely — there’s certainly a lean towards a continuation; we are hoping the comic book adaptation commissions further seasons.
