We almost saw it in the grand finale: you just had to pay attention.

Yes, we know that Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 was a movie that betrayed us when it came to the final drama, and all of our favorite characters that we were ready to mourn were actually alive.

But that doesn't change the fact that Alice's vision of the battle with the Volturi almost included Bella Swan's decapitation - a scene that could have easily dropped a few more jaws in theaters before viewers realized it was all an illusion.

"In BD2, right when Bella decapitated Aro and went to light it on fire, you see a vampire jumping at her as she's holding the torch. Do you think that would be the moment Bella would have died?" Redditor The_Loner_Aries noted.

It turns out that many fans agree that was the moment when Bella was supposed to die. With the movie still rendering all deaths not real in the end, it is surprising that the creators did not go for additional shock value.

In fact, the outcome of the vampiric battle in Breaking Dawn has a great meaning for the story.

"That's how the book presents the potential battle as well. No matter who wins, it would be a Pyrrhic victory where the "winning" side might as well have lost from how terrible their casualties are," Redditor Tacitus111 explained.

Although the movie initially shocked many fans who saw it in theaters by killing almost everyone, we eventually get a happy ending as Aro realizes how pointless the massacre will be after Alice shows him. For many people, this was a disappointment, as they had hoped that the Twilight saga could actually have a truly shocking and almost realistic ending.

The Twilight Saga recently celebrated its 14th anniversary, as the first movie premiered in 2008. The series finale, Breaking Dawn Part 2, was released in 2012.
