Question for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Either of the three times you're fighting The Imprisoned, and if you fail, The Imprisoned will reach the Sealed Temple. When the Old Woman laments "All... All is lost.", right before the screen fades to the Game Over menu, what exactly does she mean by that? Why does she say that? I know it must be really important, because the message is in red.

Uh that might be kind of a spoiler if you haven't gotten far enough in the game but if you want to know.

The Imprisoned is actually the main antagonist in this game (and I guess the entire series), Demise. Even though Demise isn't as strong as he normally is while in the form of The Imprisoned he can still to destroy the world. Honestly, I am not really sure why he is victorious for reaching the temple...

The Imprisoned is victorious because if it reaches Hylia's temple it will get Zelda. In the past the sealed temple is revealed to be Hylia's temple, and Zelda went to sleep in a cocoon like thing. She is sleeping so that Demise will be sealed. If the Imprisoned reaches the temple it will eat Impa and destroy the temple and use Zelda to restore itself to Demise.

Demise says that his hatred will be reincarnated to challenge future Links and Zeldas. This suggests that Ganon/Ganondorf is actually Demise's hatred.

The imprisoned is actually Demise,and Zelda is sleeping so that Demise = Imprisoned. If the Giant Chompy Imprisoned (kek) reaches it then it will unseal Zelda and then gg Link.
