Melia Kreiling gives an incredible turn as Mammals ends on a high note.

We recap the Prime Video series Mammals season 1, episode 6, which contains spoilers and details of the ending.

We have reached the season finale of Mammals. Does Jamie (James Corden) find his love for Amandine (Melia Kreiling)? Can they overcome their past? Will Lue (Sally Hawkins) and Jeff (Colin Morgan) meet the same demise? Let’s dive in.

Mammals season 1, episode 6 recap – will Jamie find his love for Amandine?

The episode starts with us rehashing a conversation between Jamie and Jeff about Amandine when a guy named Paul gets brought up. Well, we move back to the present-day where Jeff seemingly is about to kill himself in the woods, but a deer approaches, and he kills that instead. Then, a note is left for Amandine, which says, “I know who Paul is,” and he wants to meet with her tonight.

Next, Jamie calls Lue and tells her that after meeting with Amandine, he might need to come down there for a bit. After they get off the phone, we see Lue in bed with a man (realizing this is the past), and she realizes that she can no longer do this anymore. As she sits on the bed with this man, a woman (his girlfriend) storms in and screams at them. Then, she tries to shoot at Lue twice, who dodged not one, but two close-range shots to get out of the house.

As she runs away, she stumbles into a man on a bridge and is on the verge of jumping off. We realize this is how Jeff and Lue met each other. Both are seemingly at their lows, with little hope in the world. However, we move back to the present day, where Lue is at work struggling to keep it together.

And the moment we have all been waiting for, the meeting between Amandine and Jamie. But, unfortunately, the conversation starts a little awkward, as Jamie can’t look at her, and neither is saying much. Finally, however, Jamie FLIPS OUT because he says that one was enough, but three were so many for him to understand. It hurt him even more that it was his best friend.

As she continued, she asked if they remembered their manifesto and read off what it was. She said it was seven years, three weeks, and one day ago. Then, she turns on the TV and says this was last year, and it was her burning that manifesto as Jamie sits there in complete shock, but in a MASSIVE twist, she turns around, and it’s Jamie on a balcony with another woman. Jamie, unsure what to say, Amandine walks out the front door. Honestly, watching Melia Kreiling carry this show on her back and deliver one of the best performances on TV has been excellent.

Outside, a loud THUD happens, and we see a massive whale in the middle of the road, and Jamie looks to his left, and Amandine gets in a car and drives away. The episode ends with Jamie calling Jeff and telling him they need to talk.
