Hellsing Question

by Zac Bertschy, Apr 18th 2003

I have just finished watching the last DVD of Hellsing and I have watched them all in order. You've seen them right? I just don't understand some of the parts at the end...

That one part at the last episode half of Arucard's face changes and the one half has a moustache and different hair I think. What is going on with that? I thought it might have been Jesus, but then again that may just be me. Then at the end Integra is in a cell room with Arucard and it looks like her hands are tied together. So I want to know what is going on there. Was Integra the traitor or is she a vampire? Maybe I missed something. So will you please help me out so I can understand it better?


Alucard does not turn in to Jesus at the end of the show (Congratulations, that is the strangest theory I've ever heard on the end of Hellsing). Alucard's face is superimposed over that of Vlad Tepes, or as most people know him, Count Dracula (Blah!). Some people say Alucard (Dracula spelled backwards, for those of you who didn't know) IS the undead Vlad Tepes. I don't follow that myself; I think he's simply a super-powerful undead and at the end, calls upon the power of his ancestor to finish the job and, in effect "summons" Dracula. Usually when a character is named Alucard, he's a direct descendant (read: son or close relative) of Dracula, but not the man himself. Interpret it as you wish, but sorry to say, Alucard is not the badass undead-hunting reincarnation of The Shepherd. As for Integra, she's being silenced by the government at the end, and being held as a criminal. The public wasn't supposed to know about the Hellsing organization, and after everything that happened, she's being kept in a cell to suppress any information. Thanks to everyone who wrote in about this one!
