The kidnapper has tracked down the village of his former victims, which Apollo has unwittingly driven to ruin. Cal takes the survivors to a boat that will transport them back to New York after a sequence of explosions almost destroys their village, but not before a weird monster jumps into the ocean and chases them.
Apollo, believing that Emma has gone to Forest Hills to look for their kid, sets sail for fresh York on his own boat to begin a fresh adventure. It’s where William Wheeler lives, and it’s where he allegedly brings infants to feed a powerful ancient entity.
Cal remains behind to give him time, and after impaling a psychotic William with a branch, she jumps over a cliff to avoid being killed by William’s friends.

The Changeling Trailer
Only a month before its Apple TV+ launch, the terrifying world of the Changeling teaser was released. It had elements of magic, fantasy, and horror. Interestingly, the clip first gave off romantic comedy vibes. When Apollo asked Emma out, she repeatedly declined while they were at the library.
She clarified that her refusal to travel to Brazil was the real reason she gave. But in Brazil, she met a wise old lady who granted her three wishes and a bracelet to put on until she saw them realized. Emma and Apollo got together and had a kid, but her desires seemed to have tragic consequences when she vanished shortly after giving birth.
