WARNING: Huge spoiler alert for Netflix’s Messiah below! Read at your own risk.
You asked for it, so here’s the answer to your question!
What happened to the season ending of Netflix’s Messiah?
If it wasn’t obvious enough, Messiah focused on the life of Al-Masih or Payam Golshiri, played by the talented Mehdi Dehbi. Throughout the whole season, he was claimed to already be the Second Coming of Christ. Also throughout the season, many fans have posed questions about Al-Masih being the real deal or just another conman.
Unfortunately, Netflix hasn’t given us enough evidence to answer most of our big questions, but the streaming giant has been nice enough to give us a couple of clarifications in our heads. His powers have always been in question, but the final episode, “The Wages of Sin,” has shone light into his murky and unsure powers. I mean, he HAS resurrected people from the dead.
In the episode, the U.S. government targeted down the plane Al-Masih and former Mossad agent Aviram Dahan, played by Tomer Sisley, were traveling in. In that situation, anyone would’ve died, right? Wrong. Aviram, as normal as the human person, woke up in a beautiful field of flowers in the desert and proceeded to ask a kid about what happened to him.
And there it was, Al-Masih––unscathed from the big crash––resurrected him.
Personally, this was enough to tell me that the Son is back on Earth. But others are still speculative, and I understand why. The series also focused on his ungodliness, mainly found by Eva Gellar, played by Michelle Monaghan. Eva found out that Al-Masih was born on Earth, having the name Payam Golshiri, and was raised by his grandfather to become a conman so that he can survive the struggles in their village to which, yes, Al-Masih has confirmed.
Sadly, the ending really didn’t give us enough, but maybe the second season will. According to Arabic speakers, the name “Al-Masih” wasn’t as uncommon as you’d think it is. Al-Masih ad-Dajjal existed in this world and what do you know, he’s an Islamic figure known for being an Antichrist. No further evidence lead up to this, but hey, it’s a possibility for a big season 2.
In fact, we might see more of Jibril Medina, played by Sayyil El Alami, next season, as many think that he’s the TRUE Second Coming to confront the so-called Antichrist, Al-Masih. We’ve seen too much of Jibril to know that he’s also probably a superhuman being––surviving a suicide bomb and POSSIBLY also even having resurrecting powers.
We’ve yet to have our questions answered, but let’s watch out for the second season for more questions but definitely more answers.
