It is hugely significant that it’s Grindelwald who found this missing Dumbledore, and his history with Albus could explain some of his obsession with Credence. Albus and Grindelwald were close friends when they were younger, and it’s largely presumed by fans that Albus had romantic feelings for his friend. Albus and Grindelwald hatched plans for wizarding domination, but 18-year-old Albus was responsible for taking care of his 14-year-old sister, who had been attacked by Muggles when she was a child and traumatized her to the point of having severe magical problems, something her family kept a secret. (Aside: Many fans have speculated that Ariana actually became an Obscurial, like Credence.) It was an outburst of magic from Ariana when she was 14 that caused the death of her mother Kendra.

Only several months after Kendra’s death, when Albus was responsible for Ariana’s welfare, an argument between Grindelwald, Albus and Aberforth set off Ariana once again, and a rogue spell (which fans have deduced seem to have come from Grindelwald) caused Ariana’s death. Grindelwald fled from both the authorities and Albus, and their friendship ended there, though Crimes of Grindelwald revealed that there was a blood bond between the two former friends that still kept them tied together and prevented Albus from attacking Grindelwald as an adult.

Could it be that Grindelwald sought out this new Dumbledore to try to form a bridge back to his old friend, or is he using him as leverage over Albus - which would be especially timely now that the Hogwarts professor might know a way to break their blood bond? Considering Grindelwald said Credence can help him destroy Albus, it’s likely the latter. Those questions will likely be answered in the next Fantastic Beasts movie, along with another big one: Did Dumbledore even know he had a missing second brother?

This last question does crack open a pretty huge plot hole J.K. Rowling will have to solve in the next three Fantastic Beasts movies. Why did Dumbledore never bring up his third sibling in any of the Harry Potter stories, especially since his tragic family history was such a pivotal part of the end of that series? It could be that Aurelius’s real identity never became public knowledge, or that Grindelwald was somehow lying (which we really hope isn’t the case), or even worse, Albus never found out.

We can presume that last option won’t come to pass and that Albus at least will know about his secret brother eventually. Our theory to back this up all hinges around that phoenix we see at the end, who looks a heck of a lot like Albus Dumbledore’s phoenix Fawkes. (Granted, we haven’t seen many phoenixes in these movies to see how similar or different they typically look.) We don’t see Albus with his signature flaming bird from the Harry Potter movies in Crimes of Grindelwald, so it could be that, after eventually confronting Aurelius, Albus comes to take the phoenix on as his own. Considering Newt’s affinity for magical beasts, could he be the one who brings Fawkes and Albus together? This is a Fantastic Beasts series, after all.

That is our explanation of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’s ending, but obviously there’s plenty of room to theorize about what’s ahead for Aurelius, Albus and Grindelwald. Let us know your take on this twist in the comments!
