In the episode The Why of Fry the Nibblonians spoke of an Ancient Nibblonian Prophecy which named Fry as "The Mighty One."Also Nibbler revealed that Leela was "The Other" which was perhaps a hint that Fry might originaly make it with Leela. Do you think that at the end of the 4 movies the prophecy will come true?

Nibbler only speculates that Leela "must be The Other" because he cares about her. It was stated as a matter of importance concerning the fate of the Universe not necessarily romantic fortune-telling. So, unless Fry and Leela's relationship itself has Universal importance then "The Other" might be anyone that Fry knows and cares about and perhaps have not seen yet. Who knows, The Other maybe the one that sends Fry to his doom and in doing so saves the Universe, etc.

Basically the writers have pretty much left the door wide open on it or may just do a "never mind" on the idea.

Fry gave up his life and family just for the hope that Leela would be "The Other"

I have no doubt that Into the Wild Green Yonder will see the Nibblonian prophecy fulfilled just as Nibbler believed. Fry as "The Mighty One" and Leela "The Other"!

Considering the fact that ITWGY is supposed to be an ancient war and we haven't seen Nibbler since the end of BBS, I'm willing to be on it.

I'm willing to be that the Prophecy will be revealed. However, I really, really would not want Fry and Leela to hook up at the end or ever, as do some other people.

I just don't think they should ever explore that avenue. If they got Fry and Leela together that would mean I would not want to watch Futurama anymore, and I don't want that.

I think it would be nice if they wound up dating after ITWGY, would give you tons of room to work with their relationship WHEN the show comes back (not IF) without the sense of closure just marrying them off would give. Would make a nice new beginning.

I would still watch, but it would've definitely jumped the shark.

It has to be in the last movie, seeing how it is pure sci-fi. The prophecy has recently been on my mind for some reason...But I think that it will all come together. I keep imagining Fry and Leela kissing in a sunset at the end for very odd reasons. But I can see it animated in my brain.

Right! [cracks knuckles] [rolls up sleeves] Well, there's
  • Don't know
  • Don't care
  • None of the above
  • All of the above
  • Yes AND no
  • Yes, with an 'if'
  • No, with a 'but'
  • Definately maybe
    and
  • Other (explain in a post)

and that's just for starters!

Nibbler is deliberately vague about referring to her as the Other.  She is the Other that gives the One motivation toward saving the Universe on 3 occasions... she is also the Other who breaks the One's heart eventually leading him to reign as ruler over the Universe fueled by his anger and self-destructive tendancies created from the emotional chaos who goes through as a result of the Other's actions.

I imagine that at least another segment of the Prophecy (if not all) will be revealed in the Wild Green Yonder. DXC has mentioned that the Fry/Leela relationship will be central to the plot so chances it'll be to do with "the other" and the rest of the tantalisingly vague speculation.

It could just be that Nibbler made up the bit about the other just so that Fry would not stop himself being frozen. It would not be unheard of for Nibbler to tell a lie for the fate of the universe.

The other could not be Nibbler because otherwise he would have not speculated that it would be leela.

But then again...Nibbler not telling the exact truth isn't unheard of!

But having said that it won't be him, I'm pretty sure it'll be Leela...though if they do try and surprise everyone and make "the other" someone else I can see them going for Bender, he is the first friend Fry made afterall.

I'm actually getting really excited for ITWGY, Its looking like were going to get some hardcore epic prophecy completion, finally see what the heck is going on in Leela's head when she thinks of Fry, and get them together in time to save the day!

I've been excited about the last one since the day that they announced that there'd be four Futurama films to add to the end of the TV series. It was essentially a case of "You mean there's some new Futurama that I HAVEN'T seen?!"

And I hate waiting.

Wrapping up the prophecy doesn't mean they have to wrap up the show! Plus there's nothing to say The Mighty One and The Other might not be needed later down the road!

From what I can tell the DVD's of Futurama have been selling quite a bit better than anticipated, and if they get a good enough showing from the last two we very well could see the series back.

I imagine they'll just have to think of new story arcs to explore. The Fry/Leela story line risks running thin if they drag it out for too much longer to give one example.

I do happen to think that the Wild Green Yonder will be the last Futurama we ever see however...though providing it ends well I won't be too bothered. I love the show as much as anyone but I'd rather they finished on a high rather than carrying on for too long and in turn causing the show to become as dreadful as the Simpsons has been for the last nine or so seasons.

Since Nibbler "abandoned Universe" at the end of BBS, I think that the Nibblonian arc is probably over for good now. frown

He'll be back...I fancy for him to make a reappearance in the Wild Green Yonder.
