“The Divergent Series: Allegiant” is coming. The movie will see the returns of Theo James and Shailene Woodley as Tobias Eaton and Beatrice Prior, respectively. The movie is the adaptation of Veronica Roth’s Divergent series. While the death of the character Tris is already certain, fans are still waiting for a change.


In an interview with MTV News, Roth explained, “Well, it’s actually been set up that way. At the end of the first book, she almost experiences death. She’s in that water tank. She gets saved at the last second by her mother. At the end of the book, she kind of plays with the idea of self-sacrifice by letting Tobias almost kill her.”

When talking about Tris’ death and such an ending to the series, Roth said, “It has to be about love… it felt like it was her finally understanding what her parents were trying to teach her in Abnegation and finally understanding what it means to be an adult and make a grown up decision because you have to, not because you particularly want to.”
