Prince Caspian Chapter 15 Summary
Aslan Makes a Door in the Air The Old Narnians greet Aslan with hugs and hurrahs. Caspian finally meets the god, and Aslan makes him the official, real deal King of Narnia. But it's not all joyful news. Reepicheep has been severely injured and will soon die. But wait! Lucy uses her cordial to heal his wounds, and Aslan provides the martial mouse with a new tail. Okay, now it's all good news again. Peter knights Caspian, and with his new found powers, Caspian turns around and knights and rewards his loyal followers. As for the Telmarines, they are imprisoned, which sucks. But they're given beef and beer, so, hey, it's not so bad for them either. After that, it's the celebratory feast to end all celebratory feasts. Even the trees are invited to get down and do the birch tree boogey. The next day, Aslan starts the task of conflict resolution. He tells the Telmarines that those who wish to stay in Narnia may do so, but he'll provide a new home for those who want to cut loose. Some Telmarines wish to stay, but most want out. Aslan tells the Telmarines that their ancestors actually came to Narnia from an island in King Peter's world, and he plans to return them to that island by way of a magic doorway. One brave Telmarine accepts and steps through Aslan's magic doorway. But when the guy just up and disappears, the others freak out and refuse to follow. Reepicheep offers his services to show the Telmarines there is nothing to fear, but Peter knows better. It's their turn to leave as well. They change into their Earth clothes, and Peter lets Edmund and Lucy in on a secret. Susan and he will never return to Narnia because they have grown too old. Womp womp. But Aslan seems to have hinted that Edmund and Lucy will be back. (Can we say sequel setup?) After many a goodbye and farewell, the Pevensies step through Aslan's magic doorway and return to the train station as though they never left. And everything returns to normal. Well, except for the fact that Edmund left his new flashlight in Narnia. Oops.
