The Babysitter: Killer Queen - the ending explained

This article “The Babysitter: Killer Queen – the ending explained” contains significant spoilers and should be avoided if you haven’t watched the film.

At the end of the first film, many assumptions were made — especially about the lead villain and babysitter Bee. At the end of The Babysitter: Killer Queen, an outrageous revelation is made, which based on the events of the film became slightly predictable. Bee returns, surfacing from a lake nearby. And while this was a good nostalgic return, it posed many questions as to how she returned.

How does the satanic cult return?

The returning and dead characters are demons in The Babysitter: Killer Queen — they want Cole’s virgin blood so that they can return fully formed. Cole is once again the central character of all their motives. When Bee returns, we all assume that she is on the demon’s side because she’s a demon herself.

What happens when the demons take Cole’s blood?

In a surprising moment, when the demons take Cole’s blood, their bodies explode and they cease to exist. The central premise is that Cole is a virgin, so presumed an innocent figure. However, it turns out Cole is not so innocent after all.

Does Cole lose his virginity in the film?

It’s never clear if he has lost his virginity but more that his innocence no longer applies. The Babysitter: Killer Queen sees Cole and Phoebe fall in love with each other in extreme circumstances. His close relationship with Phoebe takes away his innocence — the story hints that they may have had sex in a scene that is not shown, but regardless, with Cole no longer having that childlike innocence, his blood fails. And it’s ironic because Cole gives up his blood willingly in order to save Phoebe.

But what about Bee?

Well, it turns out, this was her plan all along. She wanted the demons to take the blood and be removed from existence. While Bee was the villain in the first film, in the second film she’s a good person. Flashbacks show that she was the babysitter of Phoebe when she was younger. After an accident that resulted in the death of Phoebe’s parents, Bee makes a deal with a devil to save Phoebe as she felt guilty over the car accident.

Bee planned all the events in The Babysitter: Killer Queen. She hoped that Phoebe would see the “good” in Cole which would result in them falling in love to thwart the other demons when they take the blood. Bee also felt a great deal of guilt after the events of the last film with a flashback showing her remembering when Cole told her he loved her as she died. She clearly did not enjoy the fact that Cole felt betrayed by her.

So is Bee “Alive” again?

No — after she realizes her plans succeeded, she drinks Cole’s blood so there are no more demons. It was a humbling sacrifice.
