    2. Susan and Lucy are watching Aslan when he walks up to the stone table. The white witch orders her creatures to cut off his hair. Then they set him on the stone table. Then the white witch takes out here dagger. Aslan gives one final roar before he is killed. Then Susan and Lucy come up to him once the white witch and her creatures are gone. Some mice free Aslan by chewing on the ropes that binded him. Then Susan and Lucy start pacing. While they are pacing they hear a crack. They rush back to the stone table and find that Aslan is gone. They look for him and find that he is alive.

  20. Aslan sacrifices himself to save the entire world of Narnia. Aslan knew about what the following events would hold for the future of Narnia. To save his world he needed to make sure the prophecy was fulfilled at any cost. To do this he needed to ensure the safety of Edmund. To save Edmund Aslan meets with the queen and offers to give his life for his at the stone table. The queen agrees thinking it’s the perfect move on her behalf. Instead of killing Edmund she would give him up, kill Aslan herself, and then simply go after Edmund and his family after she strikes down Aslan. This on her part was a mistake that Aslan knew before he gave himself up. What she didn’t know was that if one sacrifices themselves in the place of a traitor on the stone table the table itself would break and even death itself would start to work backwards. When Aslan finally died on the stone table and the witch left to kill Edmund and his family Aslan rises from the dead and uses this opportunity to rally reinforcements and lead a surprise attack on the witch. Doing so he is able to bring down the witch and ensure safety to the humans so they may fulfill the prophecy and bring about peace to Narnia.
