Infiesto ending: who kidnapped Saioa and the others and why?
A cult led by “The Prophet” began kidnapping teenagers to sacrifice them as part of a ritual to appease the Celtic god Taranis in order to earn redemption from the apocalypse.
We learn the cult has been operating for a long time, but the recent kidnappings are related to the pandemic and the cult’s belief that the end is near. The cult has long believed that the apocalypse is imminent, so they routinely kidnap teenagers from across Spain every three months to keep the police from easily finding the missing children.
The onset of the pandemic seems to be leading cult leaders to believe they are doing the right thing, as they believe it is a sign of the end of the world. The Prophet is the leader of the cult, but works alongside his two right-hand men, the Dog Killer and the Demon. The dog killer commits suicide early in the film and the demon is taken into custody.

At one point in the film, Castro notices a hooded figure outside the police station. When she confronts them, she discovers a blonde woman named Lidia Vega. We later learn that Lidia has the same brand on her chest that Saioa has on her back. It is the symbol of the cult. Lidia was part of the cult as a teenager and reveals the Prophet’s identity.

Castro’s husband Carlos contracted COVID-19 at an early age. He continues to deteriorate as the film progresses, to the point where he has to be hospitalized and put on a ventilator. But Carlos recovers and makes it out of the film alive.

What happens at the end of Infiesto?
Once Castro learns who the Prophet is and that Samuel went to Infiesto with him, she and several other police officers arrive at the location. Unfortunately, they are too late to save Samuel, but they notice an abandoned mine nearby.
