Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 1
AIRED:
This episode starts 12 years after the end of the first Dune miniseries. Duke Paul Atreides has become the emperor of the known universe. However, after an attack he is blinded but he manages to use his visions of the future to 'see'. His concubine, Chani, has given him twins, Leto II and Ghanima. When his children are attacked, Paul is able to use Leto's eyes to see and avert the attack, but in the process loses his visions and is actually blind now. In accordance with Fremen custom, he walks into the desert and leaves his children in the care of his sister, Alia.moreless

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • All appearances of Jessica Brooks (Ghanima Atreides) and James McAvoy (Leto Atreides II) in this episode are in one of Paul's visions of the future, as their characters are born only at the end of this episode.

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Irulan: No longer an emperor, no longer a god. A simple blind Fremen wanders alone into the desert, to die.

      • Alia: I need to remember the future!

      • Irulan: Do you think you are the only woman who truly loves him?
        Chani: No, but I am the only woman he loves!

      • Irulan: Deceit, after all, is a legitimate tool of statecraft.

      • Leto II (in a vision): To know the future is to be trapped by it. But knowing there's a trap is the first step in evading it. It's the first step along the Golden Path.

      • Irulan: If history teaches us anything, it is simply this: every revolutions carries within it the seeds of its own destruction and empires that rise will one day fall.

      • Irulan: 12 Years of war. 12 years since Emperor Shaddam IV was defeated and Paul Muad'Dib's wild Fremen spread out across the universe exterminating all the remained of the old imperial armies. Colonising the plants of the known universe , one by one, under his rule. Sweeping away anything and anyone who resisted. Millions have been defeated, millions more have been slaughtered. There are no innocents anywhere. And the name of Muad'Dib is no longer a prayer, for many it is now a curse.
