Two Summers season 1, episode 6 recap – the ending explained

The finale opens with the concept of whether the events that happened thirty years ago were either “fully right or wrong” as Peter’s wife is interviewed — though at this point, I’m not sure why the moral compass of the events is relevant. It’s then revealed that his wife Romee sent him the video while getting ready to go to the airport.

In her interview, Sofie makes it clear she doesn’t want to press charges and wants this all to be over, but she’s reminded that this is not how these cases work. She describes how she felt ashamed when she saw the video and didn’t remember what happened. Sofie explains that she became so silent that she believed the gang rape didn’t happen. That’s until Romee grew suspicious of what happened that night. And then, scenes show the women talking about the gang rape years later on the island, and they wonder if they should take their plans further to bring their partners down. Saskia tells them she doesn’t want to be part of it and advises them to “deal with their husbands or call the cops.”

And then the series goes back to the holiday with the group of friends. They are all sitting at the table, and there are plenty of unspoken words. But then, the video is played in front of all of them; it’s out in the open, despite Sofie not wanting it to be played.

Peter argues with his wife and friends that they don’t deserve this punishment. Didier gets emotional and voices how much they’ve been there for each other. It ensues into chaos with everyone finger-pointing. But then, Romee reveals that the video has been sent to the three most prominent news agencies. Everyone knows now. She reveals this when it looks like the group would bury it for good. 

The ending

Saskia and Romee argue about the original plan, but Romee raises that Saskia having a child with her husband wasn’t part of the plan either. The entire reveal has caused fractions in the group and problems with all of their relationships.

And then the story reaches its head as Mowgli kills himself with a shotgun — clearly, the guilt was too much to bear. The price they have paid for this secret is high. In the end, everyone was guilty. Peter tells the investigators that no one is innocent.

After the police investigation, all the characters receive a court summons letter from the authorities, though it’s not revealed what the outcome is. It then flits to the videotapes, showing them all fooling around as young adults.

The ending to this series does have a couple of shocks, but overall, it feels underwhelming.
