Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.

Only the books written by Frank Herbert are canon.

I remember that episode. It makes me think the writers know the truth about the McDune books. Maybe they even know the hacks a bit.

Already posted this, but I heard a new one and thought a little reminder wouldn't hurt.
From Destiny (the game), "a million deaths are not enough for Master Rahool"
Don't know why but html codes won't make the YouTube video appear...
