The history of the MonsterVerse stands revealed in the Apple TV+ original series Monarch: Legacy of Monsters. Set in the aftermath of Godzilla’s cataclysmic emergence in San Francisco, as chronicled in 2014’s Godzilla, a young woman named Cate Randa (Anna Sawai) travels to Japan after her father’s apparent death only to learn her family is part of a global conspiracy involving Titans like Godzilla. Teaming up with Kentaro Randa (Ren Watanabe), the half-brother she never knew she had, Cate travels the world with her father’s old associate Lee Shaw (Kurt Russell and Wyatt Russell in flashback) to learn more about Monarch, the clandestine organization overseen by her adoptive grandfather Bill Randa (Anders Holm).

Here is how the first season finale of Monarch: Legacy of Monsters leaves its characters, what earth-shattering revelations are made, which characters don’t make it to see the ending alive, and how the finale sets up a colossal direction for a potential second season.

The Story So Far…

After traveling to Japan to gather her late father Hiroshi Randa’s belongings, Cate was shocked to learn that Hiroshi had an entire secret family in Tokyo, including a son named Kentaro. Along with Kentaro and his ex-girlfriend May Mateo (Kiersey Clemons), Cate tries to decipher Hiroshi’s files to learn what other secrets her father kept from them. This places them on the radar of Monarch, who pursues Cate and her friends after they break out Hiroshi’s old associate Lee Shaw from house arrest.
