Recap of Feria: The Darkest Light
The first episode starts with a flashback to 1975. There’s the mine that we saw in the trailer again, and it sails into the darkness of its direct access tunnel. We see a man chained to rocks, and then he is consumed by a massive fireball.
We are then back to 1995, where we see the sisters, Eva and Sofia, leaving for a local annual summer festival party. When they go back home the following day, Eva and Sofia are surprised to find out that their parents are missing.
They are soon informed by the local police that their parents, Elena, played by Marta Nieto and Pablo, played by Ernest Villegas, are wanted in association with twenty three murders.
We are then taken to the sinister site outside a local mine in Feria, where the naked dead bodies of twenty three people lie out in the opening of the tunnel.
It soon becomes apparent to the viewers that the people were killed while conducting a dark ritual guided by Elena.
Eva and Sofia are taken aback and can not understand how to deal with what they just uncovered.
The town is shaken to hear the information and can not stand Sofia and Eva. People start believing that even Sofia and Eva might have something to do with their parents’ actions and begin questioning the sisters.
Eva and Sofia literally have no clue about what happened to their parents and how the 23 people died. But with every episode, terrifying truth comes out that affects them and other people alike.
Now that we know the premise of Feria: The Darkest Light let us see what happened in the ending.
Why does Sofia open up the fifth veil?
The season finale unwarps with the town of Feria shown as suburbs of 1920s London Dark and Gloomy & evil visuals of the satanic entity called Dekta.
Belda, who was a resident of Feria and a doctor in the nearby hospital, was noticed by Dekta and submerged his powers into Belda’s body and further went on a mission to find Sofia, as she had to complete the ritual of raising of the fifth veil.
Subsequently, Sofia gets abducted from the hospital and is kept at the temple (the fifth veil ritual was going to take place there).
The Temple was used to bring Dekta and his other satanic entities to life.
In the meantime, Guillén approaches Blanca, but soon, They go into a mental dilemma and disgorges the tiny, demon-like meta of Dekta. In the further scenes, we see the sheriffs astonished by the alien and supernatural entity and open fires at eventually killing it.
Parallelly, At “The Temple”, the poor abducted Sofia and Belda are welcomed by a satanic entity named Umma. Umma further kills Belda and opens a doorway.
There was a sudden moment of realization for Belda, that there’s no looking back and she has to offer and sacrifice herself up as a key to the door and looking at the way through the door, she opens the doorway and performs the ritual of the fifth veil.
A gigantic satanic entity emerges in the shady and dark opening and the episode.
Subsequently, the season puts the curtains down with the little girl Sofia, looking in the eye of the vile satanic creature.
