When will the new villain Cyrus appear (Game of Thrones star Pilu Asbek) threatens Granite City’s future, Sam must convince Joe Smith to reclaim his superhero past and return to save the day. But is Joe what Sam thinks he is?
Let’s delve into this important discovery at the end Samaritan explain everything. Of course major spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen the movie yet.
Samaritan ending explanation: Who is Nemesis?
In the movie’s title, we are told that Samaritan and Nemesis were twin brothers who ended up becoming sworn enemies. The key event was that the residents set their house on fire when they were younger, out of revenge for the damage caused by their forces.
Their parents died in the fire, but both twins survived. Samaritan became the protector of Granite City, but Nemesis wanted the world – and his brother – to suffer. Nemesis created a hammer fueled by her own hatred for the Samaritan, which became the only weapon capable of defeating him.
(It’s also important to remember that the hammer is the only thing that can hurt a Samaritan, it’s also the only weapon that can do the same damage to Nemesis if someone uses it against him.)
In an attempt to do just that, Nemesis lured the Samaritan into a trap by threatening the lives of people in Granite City at the local power plant. However, this didn’t work as it only resulted in a massive explosion that presumably killed them both.

25 years later, Cyrus finds this hammer after breaking into a police evidence locker and decides to take on the mantle of Nemesis. He inspires the citizens of Granite City to rise up and “take back what is yours”, leading to riots and looting.
Sam’s attempts to get Joe to become Samaritan again fail over and over again, until Cyrus makes the mistake of kidnapping Sam to take Samaritan out into the open to kill him and “finish what Nemesis started”. Samaritan breaks into Cyrus’ warehouse, but the villain gets the upper hand using a hammer.
Just when all hope seems to be lost, Samaritan stops the killing blow and delivers a shocking revelation: “You keep calling me a good guy. I’m not a nice guy. I’m a bad guy”.
Yes, Joe is not a Samaritan at all… he is a Nemesis, and we finally get the full picture of the memories of that fateful night 25 years ago.
The Samaritan had the upper hand, but refused to kill Nemesis with a hammer. After he threw it away, the ceiling collapsed and despite Nemesis’ efforts to save his twin, Samaritan crashed to his death.
Nemesis threw away both masks, which meant everyone else thought they both died in the explosion. However, he is not entirely a bad guy, as he ends up defeating Cyrus and saving Sam’s life.
Because he has seen him fix broken things, Sam is convinced that Nemesis can change himself, but he has no intention of becoming a superhero. “If only bad people did bad things, it would be easy to get rid of them. But the real truth is that good and bad live in the heart of everyone, and you have to make the right choice, ”he said. says Sam.
Before Nemesis fades back into the night and plunges back into obscurity, he watches Sam being interviewed live after the dramatic events. When asked who saved him, Sam exclaims that “Samaritan is alive” rather than revealing the truth.
