Is Emma also an alien?

Lukas helps Emma and protects her from the assassins of Astraeus. When Lukas finds that Emma is hiding something, he asks her and she tells him that her mom knows everything. Emma calls her mother and asks her to meet at a restaurant so that they can talk. However, when she reaches there, her mother doesn’t come, but a middle-aged man comes to her table and talks to her.

He shows her how she came here and tells her that she is one of them, which means she is an ALIEN. She also gets to know about her biological mother and how she ended up with Lykke. She was there when the ship crashed and Hans, who was traveling on the spaceship that crashed in Middelbo, gave her to Lykke. She was told to take care of her till the time the war is over on their planet and then can head to their home.

The man also tells Emma to cut her hand to see if her blood is red or transparent. Initially, she says no but when the man tells her to believe who she is and what she can do. She obliges and cuts her hand. Shockingly, her blood is transparent as well. The man sends her into a trance and takes her to a place where he tells her that they are going home soon, but she tells him about Lukas. He gets nervous and asks if he is on the planet, to which, Emma says yes.

Was Lukas lying to her?

Yes, Lukas has been lying to her all that time. He made her believe that the other aliens were here to capture the planet. But they weren’t. Lukas was sent on Earth to kill them so that they could never return to their home planet. In order to know the truth, he also killed Emma’s mother.

When Lukas asked Emma who she was, she smashes her head with a glass showpiece and runs away.

Did aliens return to their home planet?

So, when Emma ran away from her home after smashing Lukas’s head. She reached a place where she could see the spaceship and it was revealed that there were many more like her in the town. They were waiting to go home and as Emma reached closer, the spaceship turned into dust as Lukas reached there and killed everyone. The man says, “There are others. Find them, Emma.”

Emma runs away and reaches a place where she is all alone and the entire sky is purple just like when the man sent her in a trance while sitting at the restaurant.
