This article explains the ending of the Netflix film Under Her Control and will contain significant spoilers. 

The ending of Under Her Control will leave you a bit frustrated. Beatriz has been nothing but nice to Sofía, and she does want what’s best for her. She signed a contract complying with her wishes, and since she is a businesswoman, she wouldn’t stray from that. The more Sofía was controlled in the house, the more she wanted to break free from Beatriz.

This resulted in her spiralling out of control and becoming a bit volatile. Sofía had no idea what to do anymore because she feels completely cut off from everyone including her boyfriend. After one facetime call on her birthday, Nacho doesn’t feel right about the story Sofía is telling him. He ends up searching for her to get to the bottom of this.

In the meantime, Beatriz watches Sofía from her cameras try to climb out of the front yard with a ladder. Sofía ends up falling on her back and hurting herself. Beatriz races back and goes to take care of her. She gives her a sleeping pill in her tea because she has to return to the office to deal with Nacho.

Nacho goes to the office and the new receptionist gives him Beatriz’s address. He was able to make contact with Sofía and she begged him to call the police. As Beatriz heads back to her home she sees Nacho in the middle of the road. After all the things that have happened with Sofía, Beatriz ends it once and for all, and she ends up hitting Nacho with her car.

When Beatriz goes inside Sofía plays her game and is nice to her again. She is calm and sweet to her about the baby and ends up apologizing to her. After a day or so, Sofía acts up again because she thinks that Beatriz will get rid of her after she has the baby. Sofía ends up beating Beatriz and tying her to a column in the house.

Beatriz is confused as she would honour the contract, but Sofía does not believe her at all. In the end, Beatriz tries to strangle Sofía, but Sofía took a pair of scissors (from her award on her desk) and stabbed her with them.

Where will Sofía go?

Sofía is now the ruthless one in control and the power has officially shifted. She walks out of the house all bloody, and just as she is about halfway down the road her water breaks. She is now forced to have the child she didn’t want to have in the first place and the screen goes black. A prime example of greed, ambition, and ultimately being ungrateful for the position you were given in your time of need.

    If I was in Sofia’s situation I would do exactly what she did… Beatriz left her very confused and it’s all beatriz fault, She denied her access to her boyfriend and outside world, They had an agreement but it wasn’t said she would be a slave to Beatriz and the way Beatriz treated her was too bad so I don’t blame the action Sofia took at all..

    Honestly the ending just had me confused. Netflix advertised this movie as a psychological thriller but the first 2/3 of this 2 hour movie is just all light drama and setup making the ending thriller sequences feel very rushed and out of nowhere. I dont really get the motivations of the main characters actions by the end and even the boss seems rather off at times.

    It was all sofia’s fault.Her boss was been good with her looking after her even though she was showing so much tantrums to her.And she never even once felt for her baby she just wanted a double money and 2 trips for that baby. She could have give that baby to her.She could her care better. So sad that she died.

    The end was kind of rushed and several lose ends. Sofia agreed to stay at the house and give Beatriz the baby, per contract, but not to be a prisoners locked away in her home from no contact with her boyfriend or communication from outside world. They became leary and untrusting of other.

    Beatriz was nothing but nice??!!! Ummm, WHAT? Keeping her prisoner, taking her phone so that she is unable to call anyone, controlling everything she does, turning rather nasty when she dares not go with the program (like pushing her back into the pool with her foot when she wouldnt complete all her laps). Beatriz was not at all nice. She was controlling and unstable and completely understandable Sofia would lose confidence in her. The woman even ran down innocent Nacho in cold blood, she was crazy. No reason to trust she would honor the contract. Actually Sofia is right to think Beatriz would kill and get rid of her too once she got the baby..esp as she already murdered Nacho and wouldnt want that looked into, so she wouldnt let Sofia just go..

    Like more and more films being made, it’s almost as if the writer/produce/ director gets fed up and just ends the film leaving people to create their own endings. I hate films that do this, it’s not cliff hanging it’s just irritating.
