Miraculous Ladybug season 4 spoilers if you haven’t already seen it!
Okay, so I just finished watching season 4 (except for part two of Risk as it’s being released in 2 days at the time of writing this article) and I have a LOT of feelings regarding this. For the past 2 days, I’ve been in a weird fandom mood where my heart is broken and a ton of emotions. It was similar to when I watched Chat Blanc. I couldn’t watch any more for almost a week. One of the perks of being in a fandom, I think. I know that Adrien and Marinette are endgame but Luka Couffeine is such a strong and wonderful character. Sometimes I think he might be better for Marinette since he can bring calmness in her life while she’s stressed and the weight of so many responsibilities are on her shoulders (at 14!).
I love Adrien. He’s a pure sunshine child and also deserves happiness. But I think about how Chat Noir is who he truly wants to be and how he’s more active, spontaneous, and adventurous. While Marinette is also those things, I think she needs someone to help calm her down when she can’t handle all the stress she has in her life and when her anxiety makes her overthink everything.
The episode where Luka is so sad and says that Marinette is avoiding him since she knows he’s still in love with her…oh my heart. I cried. I wanted someone to hug him. Why can’t he just be happy? Marinette felt like a jerk because let’s be honest. Having pictures of your ex-crush when you are dating somebody shows that she doesn’t care about her relationship with Luka and she was with him cause he cared for her and she was trying to get over Adrien. A rebound is never the answer. I think Luka deserved better in that regard even though I think he and Marinette could be a great couple.
Why didn’t he tell her he knew and who does he end up with?
Also, I don’t know why he didn’t tell her that he knew she was Ladybug during Wishmaker. In my opinion, if he tells her, that will be a big relief for her since she won’t have to hide her secret. And I think that Luka would be understanding during their dates and they’ll just pick up where they left off. Is it because he thinks she’s in love with Adrien and just wants her to be happy?
There’s been speculation that he’ll end up with Zoe but I haven’t seen enough interaction to see that yet. They’re both creative so they’ll have that in common. Also, Chloe even said Luka was cute in the season 3 episode Miracle Queen. Though I don’t think it’ll be Chloe. Thomas Astruc has even said that some characters just don’t get a redemption arc when he replied to a fan asking about Chloe. So maybe it’ll be one of them?
Miraculous Ladybug Season 4: Gabriel Agreste
Okay and now on to the world’s biggest jerk in animated history. Okay, maybe not the BIGGEST but at least top 5. We’ve seen in Oblivio and now in season 4 that anytime Adrien finds out, his father also finds out and uses it to his advantage. Uses his SON! He’s the reason that they can’t find happiness. And I want someone to punch him in the face.
That man deserves no redemption arc. And I know I’m not the only one who thinks so. So many fans have mentioned this. The man’s neglected his son, he’s terrorized PARIS, and for what? Because he’s obsessed with his wife? No, he doesn’t love his son. He wouldn’t want him to die, but as we saw in Chat Blanc and Ephemeral if he has the option to emotionally manipulate the poor boy, he will. And Natalie has no problem with doing it as well.
Natalie isn’t the best either…
I’m not sure about her. She’s in love with Gabriel Agreste but why? Doesn’t she know that Gabriel will choose Emilie over her if they do recover her? I know people do crazy things for love but they both take it too far.
Finally, we have the most ridiculous part of all. He’s willing to single-handedly KILL and TERRORIZE just to reach his goal. So many times people were turned to statues or killed in some way or almost killed. Sure Ladybug’s cure could fix it but that’s not Gabriel’s goal. He doesn’t WANT Ladybug to fix everything after she uses her Lucky Charm. Would the akumitized people stay the same or would he use them in different ways?
Not to mention, the wish to bring back his wife literally ends and rewrites the universe. I kinda wish Noroo would explain this to him but maybe he has tried and couldn’t get a word in, or possibly he doesn’t know? Though I don’t think it’s the latter since all the rest of the kwami’s knew about it. It seems likely that if history rewrites itself, Gabriel Agreste will die as well. When will the time period restart? To the beginning? The start of Gabriel’s life since he would be the one to make the wish? There are several possibilities and if that happens, life possibly won’t turn out the same, and he and Emilie might not even meet or have Adrien.
Final Thoughts on Miraculous Ladybug Season 4
What are your thoughts on Miraculous Ladybug season 4? There’s been up to 7 seasons with episodes to be announced but no official dates for them. I’m curious and excited about the other seasons, but also a little hesitant to see our lovelies get hurt. I still hate Gabriel Agreste and hope someone does punch him in the face. And I want everyone to get a happy ending. Except for Gabriel. He can rot in jail while Adrien does better without him. Also, another thought. Do you think the writers will confirm WHY Adrien and Marinette are meant for each other? They’re both written very well but in reality, anyone can be meant for someone. It takes so much work for any relationship. But maybe because it’s not reality that they have just one person who is THEIR person and that’s it. No deeper meaning.
