One of the ongoing mysteries in the new DuckTales series has been the fate of Della Duck. During the 44-minute finale of the first season, fans finally got to know what happened to Della (Donald Duck’s twin sister) and why she hasn’t been there for her sons Huey, Dewy, and Louie.

The premiere of DuckTales season one showed Dewey discovering a painting of Scrooge, Donald, and Della. So, it made sense for the triplets, with help from their friend Webby, to try and uncover the truth about their missing mother. In ‘The Last Crash of the Sunchaser!’ (episode 22), Scrooge came clean about what happened to Della Duck.

Turns out, to celebrate the hatching of her triplets, Scrooge made a rocket ship for her. However, Della didn’t wait for the boys to come and boarded the ship. She ended up in a cosmic storm and was lost in space. Of course, Scrooge nearly went bankrupt, sparing no expense to find her. But he was unsuccessful at finding a single trace of Della.

In ‘The Last Crash of the Sunchaser,’ the boys and even Webby blamed Scrooge for the disappearance of Della and left him.

In this week’s episode (the finale), titled ‘The Shadow War!,’ with Scrooge all alone in his mansion, the villainous Magica attacked him. She would have been successful in her plan of world domination if Scrooge’s family hadn’t arrived to save him.

With Magica defeated, Scrooge found the love of his family again and promised to do better. It was in the final moments of ‘The Shadow War!’ that we got to see Della Duck. She is stranded on the moon and wants to return.

My theory is she found a way to come back to Earth after being trapped in the cosmic storm. But something went wrong and her ship crashed on the moon instead. Paget Brewster will have a recurring role in the second season of DuckTales as Della Duck. It’ll be interesting to see how she manages to come home.

I like how the current series has been fleshing out Della as a character. She was first mentioned way back in the 1930s. That’s why it is awesome to see her playing a bigger role in the current DuckTales lore.

The main cast includes David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck, Danny Pudi as Huey Duck, Ben Schwartz as Dewey Duck, Bobby Moynihan as Louie Duck, Kate Micucci as Webby Vanderquack, Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack, Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley, and Tony Anselmo as Donald Duck.
