The Weeping Monk is a distressed soul as he was not being able to accept his Fey heritage, under the command of Father Cardin he needs to kill people of his kind, surely that is not something he would like doing. He kills men, women with children, burns them, and whatnot. He seems merciless but that’s just half part of what is shown in the series. The end of the series is actually the beginning in the case of The Weeping Monk who happens to be King Arthur’s trusted Knights, as mentioned by the legends.

THE WEEPING MONK AND SQUIRREL

The Weeping Monk and Squirrel has few confrontations since the first episode, while He seemed to be cruel on Squirrel in the very first episode, still didn’t hurt him anyway, and it was just mere warnings next. In the last episode, we finally saw Squirrel and The Weeping Monk supporting each other and he saved squirrel against the trinity guards, and hence they escaped together!

THE WEEPING MONK AND NIMUE

Although The Weeping Monk and Nimue had shared their screen at it’s minimum, fans expect that there’s more. As said the the legends, Sir Lancelot had a love affair with King Arthur’s wife there’s a difference in the portrayal of those legends, the modernized versions! In the finale episode, we saw Arthur addressing a thank you to Red Spear which can also rise a chance of a new story with expectation of Nimue and The Weeping Monk united.

OLD LEGEND VS THE NEW SERIES

In the old legend, Lancelot was one of the trustworthy Knights of Arthur but ended up having an affair with Arthur’s queen, Guinevere. This caused a war between Arthur and Lancelot, due to which Guinevere had to depart and end up in a convent being a nun.

Although Cursed is a very modernized version of the legends, the foundation has still been laid as we see Red Spear, the series version of Guinevere meeting with Arthur, if what the fans foresee, Lancelot waves down his path to Nimue, it can lead to a love quadrangle.

Possibly queen Guinevere’s personality is split into characters, maybe? At the end of the series, Nimue falls deep into the lake, there could be a possibility that she reaches into the edge of the waterfall or lake where Lancelot and Percival ride in. As nobody is left, people killing each other, father Cardin dead, Lancelot may find Nimue later. 

While the fanfictions are made, there are gossips of what will happen next, what do you think of The Weeping Monk and Nimue? Do let us know in the comments below.
