I don’t think Phillip is dead either. Adam and Eddy hinted his soul was retrievable and that they didn't see him die. This is all sounding very reminiscent of the Disney cartoon Hercules when he went to the underworld to save Meg’s soul, and he became an immortal because of his heroics. Could we meet Hercules, since we’ve seen Greek mythology already? I don’t mean this as a “serious” theory, but still fun to speculate. 🙂
Yes, I don’t think he’s dead either. I had another idea about how to possibly get back the lost souls, but using Hercules or rather just incorporating a similar story like the movie makes sense because of the Disney connection. Plus, I could see 3 of the new characters (Aurora, Mulan, or Lancelot) deciding to make some kind of sacrifice by staying in Hades while the others get out if it came down to that. Not that it will come down to that, but it does seem like at least one of them will sacrifice themselves since that seems to be part of the theme being set up this year.
My idea in my Bae-obsessed brain though was that somehow he is connected in helping destroy the Wraiths because his name means great or fatal fire, and that’s what was used to attack them. Of course, his storyline doesn’t have anything to do with that particular storyline at least not yet.
