Shadow and Bone Season 1 Recap

The show ends with the final duel of Alina with Kirigan. In the entire season, Alina with the Crows is always watching to bring down the antagonist Kirigan but remains unsuccessful. We also see the Stag showing powers and visions to Alina, which makes her believe that once she harnesses it, she can finally kill Kirigan. The antagonist cannot tolerate the idea of defeat and divides the world between darkness and light. This duel is where the show ends.
