I came across this God of War video, and heard the following sentence at 1:14:
Where one journey ended, a new had begun.
Grammatically, what I understand from this is that the "new journey" had begun before the first mentioned journey, which doesn't make sense due to the intrinsic meaning of "new". So i'm confused why they chose to use past perfect here. Now I understand that there might be another event that followed the "new journey", which made it natural to use the past perfect here to describe the timeline, but in that case wouldn't it be more correct to use the past perfect for the first action as well? I.e.:
Where one journey had ended, a new had begun.
