How does Can You Hear Me? season 1, episode 10, “We Were Beautiful” open?
Episode 10 opens with Ada walking around the streets drinking, dismantled by the notion that she can’t control everything — no-one can find her. Ada finally shows up and speaks to Fabiola and she is absolutely wasted. Fabiola helps her have a bath to get clean and sober up. Carolanne arrives and Ada asks if she’s going to tell the police about the rape but she insists she just needed to vent at him. Fabiola puts Ada down to sleep and tells Carolanne that she should definitely ring the police; Carolanne states that she was asking for it because she was really drunk and Keven couldn’t do anything as there was “three of them” and high as a kite.
Ada wakes up extremely hungover and thirsty. Nassim tells Ada that it’s awful what happened to Carolanne but there was no need to throw beer all over him. She apologizes saying she messed up — the pair kiss and she says what happened to her friend makes her blood boil.
Your therapy is over
Ada visits her therapist, who wants to delve into her mother. It’s her last therapy session — Ada thanks her for helping her friends. As she leaves, Ada admits to peeing in her therapist’s plant. On the way to the bar, she sees Keven and asks if he’s looking for Carolanne; she lies and states that Carolanne might hurt herself and asks him to come with her.
A dark turn
Ada takes Keven to her house and then the camera is shot outside as we hear him scream. Nassim rings Ada wondering why she never came to the bar. He opens up the paper and the headline is “Woman Tries To Cut Off His P***s” and Ada is splashed on the front page.
How does Can You Hear Me? season 1, episode 10, “We Were Beautiful” end?
Fabiola visits Ada in jail. Ada tries talking about how she tried to cut off Keven’s p***s but Fabiola doesn’t want to know. Ada asks when Carolanne is going to visit her but Fabiola says neither of them will be visiting again as she took it too far. Fabiola is tired of her violence. Ada is distraught — “Did you not hear me? You two are my people.” This was a hard-hitting scene as the only two consistent things in her life are her friends.
The episode then shows a montage of scenes of the three friends together. In the present day, the three friends are now separated. As the prison guard shuts Ada’s cell door, she cries with her hand over her mouth. Episode 10 ends the series in unexpected ways, showing how fragile the characters’ lives are and how mental health issues and trauma are not easy to overcome.
