  • The ending is supposedly happy, with Ofelia being reunited with her real parents (the rulers of the underworld)... by dying. Mercedes holding her dead body while singing a lullaby is just icing on the tearcakes.
    • Of course, it could be worse, since there's another way to interpret the ending. No one but Ofelia ever saw any of the magic, so it could be that she made the whole thing up in her head to deal with her horrible situation, and the "reuniting" is just her final, dying hallucination. But that puts the whole thing squarely in Downer Ending territory.
