This deleted scene from ‘The Sandman’ could outline a ‘Death’ spinoff

For fans of Netflix, Christmas came early The Sandman this year. The streaming service, which also produces the hit dark fantasy series, has released a deleted scene from one of the series’ most popular episodes, The Sound of Her Wings. And if that wasn’t enough of a visit from Santa, the scene could even be a backdoor pilot for a Death spinoff miniseries.

The deleted scene has some points of interest for longtime fans of Neil Gaiman sandman Comic series that ran between 1989 and 1996 and provided the source material for the television adaptation. The scene takes place between Morpheus, also known as Dream, and his older sister Death as he accompanies them in their duties. Fans will immediately recognize one of Dream’s opening lines, “Why do they fear the sunless lands?” as one of the most famous lines from the acclaimed comic.

But the real revelation is when death reveals the secret of her surprisingly optimistic attitude and approach to her responsibilities. Death describes the death of a young girl “long ago” who upon arrival asks “how would you like it?” She then reveals that in the years that followed she decided to take a day off every hundred years to live 24 hours as a mortal.

While the death revelation explains a lot about the character’s motivations, there’s something even more revealing for longtime fans. Death essentially describes the plot of her own solo miniseries, Death: The high cost of living, one of the most popular spinoffs of the many spinoffs in the original comic series. In it, Death spends a day as an eccentric orphaned goth teenager named Didi. In it, she goes through a wide variety of experiences and helps a growing teenager named Sexton appreciate his own life.

While it’s hardly an explicit promise of an upcoming Netflix death series, it’s at least an outline of the concept — and probably the show’s most likely spin-off. Fans are good at believing in miracles. If they’ve managed to survive the seemingly endless wait for the green light for Season 2, they might as well wait for death itself.
