But we do believe in trying to educate yourself every damn day, and in that spirit, this minisode is accompanied by some recommended readings. Enjoy!

  1. I don’t think Credence did die, did he? Didn’t Newt see a small part of the Obscurus crawling away near the end? Newt was surprised that someone as old as Credence has survived this far, so is it possible that Credence and his Obscurus are now one and the same? His Obscurus can’t survive without him as a host, so I don’t think Credence is really dead. That’s my theory, anyway!
