The big question in a show called Everything Will Be Fine is, obviously, will it? And it’s hard to imagine that being the case when the finale opens with Ruy and Julia passionately kissing, which is how they ended the penultimate episode. They break off just in time to not be caught by Fausto, but these things don’t just end. After convincing Fausto to stay for a drink and a smoke, there’s a little bit of footsie under the table, some high dancing and almost-kissing (in front of a passed-out Fausto!), and also what’s really important — staring at a sleeping Andrea through the bedroom doorway.
All that classic husband and wife stuff, though, predictably leads to sex — almost, anyway. Fausto stumbles in at precisely the wrong time, but the wrong time becomes the right time, and all three of them enjoy each other’s company together. As is break-ups weren’t already complicated enough.
You can’t have your cake and eat it, as the saying goes, but perhaps that isn’t entirely true. There’s a pretty uniform agreement that everyone had rather a good time, and it’s obviously better for everyone if a good time is being had, even if it’s an unconventional and confusing one. Andrea is happy to see them all together, though obviously the morning after. It probably would have been a bit awkward if she woke up during the night.
Everything Will Be Fine season 1, episode 8 ending explained
The specter of Covid-19 looms over the Everything Will Be Fine ending as Ruy talks about a new normal, about turning to one another in order to make sense of all this, and you get the sense, as he scoops up Andrea before she sneaks into the room where Fausto and Julia are getting it on, he isn’t just talking about the pandemic. When it comes to the breakdown of relationships and the breaking apart of family units, change is everything, and it isn’t always easy to adapt to. But it’s a process, and as long as change occurs for the right reasons, it can often be a good thing. As the entire cast of Everything Will Be Fine breaks into song as the episode and the series comes to a close, that’s what everyone is singing about — having found their place, together.
Well, until they get home and find the graffiti that labels them disgusting since family is sacred. See? Change really is a process. Hopefully, everyone gets there in time.
