    How well does the sequel to 2017's It adapt Stephen King's classic novel while tying up all the loose ends from the first installment? Let's roll up our sleeves, wade into the sewers and dig into the details of how the saga ends. This is the ending of It: Chapter Two explained.
    And before you open the door labeled "very scary," be warned: Spoilers await you.
    Stephen King's novel It isn't just the story of a creepy clown terrorizing some kids and then returning to do it all over again when they're adults. There's a whole cosmology to the saga, which includes a giant, godlike turtle that coughed up the known universe when it had a tummy ache. Aside from a few subtle nods here and there, the movies mostly sidestep the ancient, interdimensional mythology of the book, but one element does show up in It: Chapter Two - the true form of It.
    When he goes to visit the Shokopiwah tribe and takes one of their vision-granting concoctions, Mike learns that It came to Earth in a meteor strike that left a crater in Derry, and is made up of "Deadlights," mostly orange but sometimes-blue spheres of light of immense power. Though the lights can be seen in brief moments in the first film, It appears entirely as deadlights as Chapter Two reaches its climax, and even after taking on other forms, the deadlights are still visibly powering the creature, becoming increasingly weaker as the Losers literally bring It down to size.
    It's true form is revealed because the Losers perform the Ritual of Chüd, a ceremony that differs pretty wildly in the movie from the way it works in the book. The movie's take on the ritual involves each member of the club burning a "token" of his or her childhood and reciting a chant to make the Deadlights turn dark, then trapping the Deadlights inside a pyramid-shaped relic Mike stole.
    The ritual is the key to defeating It in the book, though it takes two tries 27 years apart. But the Losers' attempt essentially fails in the movie, at least at first. That's because it's revealed Mike lied to everyone in an attempt to simply bring them all back together. The ritual wasn't successful before when the Native Americans tried to do it, and it doesn't kill It when the Losers try it this time, either. At least, not until they've gone through the wringer just a little bit more so they can truly overcome the fears that feed It. Keep watching the video to see the ending of It: Chapter Two explained!

    How did you like IT: Chapter Two?

      Just saw chapter 2.. and i have to say.. ‘he ending sucked’... for one, demons dont have hearts.. still beating anyways, nor being the source of their being.. they already died in our life/world.. and haunt it.. but as a soul.. right?
      Throughout the entire 2nd half of the movie they were eluding to one of the characters being a writer who wrote novels with sucky endings, but in a way i cant help but think they were meaning this movie, or stephen kings original, which this movie derived.. i was so hoping that for once, the demon would win, because the scene in the trailer of that monster holding someone’s face underwater, never truly occurred from what i saw.. (maybe i missed it)? Or maybe it was just cut out, but at the very end, after it was ‘defeated’ and they were washing off in the lake as they all went underwater, i thought for sure thats when that scene was going to occur, but it just never happened.. damn...
      Fuck a happy ending.. it shouldnt always occur, especially in movies about a demon tormenting souls, over 27 years.. lol! I could watch bill, as IT (a psychopathic clown) tormenting people forever) i think! Hah!

    I think it’s a brilliant ending that they had the Losers bully It into his death. They sort of get the satisfaction of beating the bully

    So, Pennywise can’t die from a gunshot, being beaten to death, or being stabbed, but when he gets roasted he’s a goner

    Eddie and Stan dying was foreshadowed in IT Chapter One in the lake scene. Stan and Eddie are playing apart from Bill, Beverly, Ben, Mike, and Richie.

    I saw it today, and while it was good overall, it was repetitive and frankly exhausting. I was more than ready to hit the bricks when they performed the CHUD ritual, but there was yet more to come.
    I was kind of bummed that the assholes who brutalized Adrian got away Scot free, even though that happened in the book too.

    Meri Michaud Day ago

    This was by far the most hyped, less delivered movie I've seen in a while. It falls far, far short of where its mark was, and even the cameo by Mr. King himself couldn't really save it. When ya nap during the more "interesting" parts, that's pretty bad. And where was the fear factor? Highly over-rated and over-hyped for what it delivers.

    Sounds like this reviewer didn't understand that Richie was in the closet and not openly gay because of having grown up in homophobic Derry. He loved his friend Eddie more than just a friend...

    Pennywise got stabbed many times got shot and gets beat up but the only thing that kills him is adults roasting him and then he turns to a panini roll

  • Christian Bennerman

    So now I understand why Pennywise wasn’t in the hood. He would’ve been destroyed in a game of “The Dozens”

    The movie makes so much more sense if you have read the book. Like wise with the novel actually. It’s kinda hard to picture some of the stuff he writes so seeing the movie makes so much more sense. I feel like you can only truly understand and analyze this story if you read it and watch it. There’s stuff you don’t see in the movie but there’s stuff you can’t visualize correctly in the book.

      The turtle is a sacred figure in Native American symbolism as it represents Mother Earth. The Turtle, "mother earth" was attempting to bring balance back to the world due to the imbalance brought by the invader (It/space spider).
