Selena Gomez bid a bittersweet adieux to her “home” of more than four years as the final episode of Wizards of Waverly Place aired on Friday evening. Was Selena’s character, Alex Russo, the one chosen to remain a wizard? Does she still have her powers, or did they go to one of the other Russo siblings?
According to a report from Hollywood Life, the finale was an hour-long show that found the three Russo siblings vying for the title of wizard. Only one would be allowed to keep their magical powers.
The show was nothing if not family friendly. Filled with a strong sense of morality, the Russo siblings taught selflessness as they each took turns putting the others first as they went about their competition. In the end, each of them emerged winners in their own way.
If you haven’t watched the episode, this is the point at which you’ll definitely want to stop reading!
Selena Gomez’s character, Alex Russo, did emerge the winner. She will go down in history as the Russo family wizardÂ—the successor, if you will, of the entire Wizards of Waverly Place television run. But don’t be disappointed for the other siblings just yet. Each made out quite nicely, as you’ll soon see.
Justin Russo (played by David Henrie) wound up becoming a lifetime wizard as well. How did that happen? Wasn’t the deal that just one of the Russo siblings would win the title? Yes. However, at the end of the show, Professor Crumbs decided it was time to hang up his wizard’s hatÂ—retiring and bequeathing his wizardly powers to Justin.
So what about poor Max, the character played by Jake T. Austin? Both of his siblings wind up being wizards and he gets left out in the cold? Not to worry. He has a restaurant to run. The Russo parents gave Max the family restaurant, leaving the impression that he, too, is set for life.
So what do you think of the Wizards of Waverly Place finale? Are you happy that Selena Gomez wound up being the official Russo family wizard?
