Who Really Bombed The Arena In Ballad Of Songbirds & Snakes? Inside Job Theory Explained

Viewers who haven't read the source material for Dune 2 may be curious about Lady Jessica's (Rebecca Ferguson) sequel plot, namely Dune's Spice Agony ceremony. 

Dune is based on Frank Herbert's epic sci-fi novel of the same name and follows Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet),

whose father, Duke Leto Atreides (Oscar Isaac), is given stewardship of the desert planet Arrakis by Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV (Christopher Walken).

In the Dune world, Arrakis is the sole source of Melange, a drug that provides users, among other things, a longer life span, more energy, and increased consciousness.

However, Dune's Melange spice has important ties to the Bene Gesserit order.Lady Jessica, Paul's mother, is a Bene Gesserit acolyte with exceptional physical and mental powers, like her sisters.

For millennia, the Bene Gesserit have used their magical abilities to create a breeding program that will eventually culminate in the birth of Dune's Kwisatz Haderach.

Jessica was supposed to bear Leto a daughter, but she disobeyed, resulting in Paul becoming the promised messianic super-being.

The psychoactive qualities of the spice allow it to be employed as a potent entheogen by Paul, Jessica

 the Bene Gesserit, and the Fremen, Arrakis' Indigenous people. Melange not only enhances certain skills, but it also unlocks new ones, especially in Bene Gesserit acolytes.
