A breathtaking and pulsating end to what turned out to be one incredible season of Echo 3.

We recap the Apple TV+ series Echo 3 Season 1 Episode 10, “Heat,” which contains spoilers and explains the ending.

In episode 9 of Echo 3, the war finally took place, and we saw Prince (Michiel Huisman) and Bambi (Luke Evans) able to recapture Amber (Jessica Ann Collins and get her out of the site. The season finale promises to be massive, with them still having to get out of the country. So let’s dive in.

Echo 3 Season 1 Episode 10 Recap

The episode kicks off in Cartagena, Colombia, where a nervous Prince brings breakfast to Amber. Upon entering the room, he sees Amber sitting against the wall. However, things don’t go quite well as Amber is still very cautious about everything, which even leads to a moment where she bites Prince on the neck. Prince expresses his frustration to Bambi, who tries to remind him that it will take some time.

Violetta walks into where the Colombian President is talking to his troops about how they never want to fight in a war, but they don’t have a choice. She tries to talk to him but is stopped by the on-site guards. Now, in the car, Violetta is watching a video released by the Venezuelans. We hear the driver say, “don’t worry, we are going to make them pay,” She retorts that Colombians attacked first to save an American woman.

Oh boy, she has arrived at where Amber is staying and is confronted by Bambi. A short conversation leads to him being receptive to the idea that she talks to her. While Violetta empathizes with Amber, she flips out on Bambi/Prince about what they did. She demands that they leave the country immediately. Next, she meets with a man who believes that the Colombians need the war for monetary purposes—another chink in her armor to find someone that cares about what is happening.

One of the huge factors for Bambi and Prince is dealing with how many people had to die for them to rescue Amber. While they have doubts, they both know they did what they had to do. Unfortunately, when Prince heads to check on Amber, she has disappeared again. Next, we see a frantic Bambi unable to find her throughout the city. Finally, Bambi finds her inside a church. However, she tells him that she isn’t going home. A powerful exchange between the two about the direction of her life happens.

After a show ends, Violetta takes the opportunity to confront the President again. She wants to know whether or not he ordered the attack on Venezuela. He tells her that she doesn’t have any proof, which she says that she does.

Mitch finds a boat for the trio to get out of the country. However, he informs them that there is a nationwide hunt for them. Everywhere the three of them turn, there is either a roadblock or traffic forcing them to move on foot. They were spotted as they walked through a shop, and now the military is on the hunt, forcing them to get out their weapons. We see Prince take down one of the soldiers, and now the captain says none of the Americans make it out alive.

After weeding through the battle, we see them make it to Mitch and the boat to get out of Dodge and to the little island to wait until they can get someone to rescue them.

The tension built here again shows the pure genius behind the camera because you are on the edge of your seat throughout this entire sequence. I loved that you had no clue whether these three would live or die based on how incredible the writing has been all year.

Finally, Prince confronts Amber and asks what he can do to make it right. She tells him that everything that has happened over the last few months has changed her, so she won’t be able to return. Honestly, this ending is quite perfect, and Jessica Ann Collins and Michiel Huisman act their a*s off in these final moments of this episode that brought me to tears. The complete 360 I did watching Echo 3 is a true testament to some brilliant writing. I love this show.

    I thought the ending was crap, a huge disappointment, it needed to end instead all it means is that another season will follow, but not one that I will be watching

    I thought the ending was terrible. He gives up everything for that feminist lefty and she leaves him! Terrible. Typical though. Evil military man saves feminist. Then at the end he gives a big smile. Is he happy she is gone because he realizes she is WAY too much work?? It was awful

    Absolute fricking garbage ending. How many women in the same situation around the globe would understand the sacrifice he and Bambi made. All of them. He gets nothing for the future. Politics is out. Now he has to work at daddy’s factory. And why was he smiling at the end. And remember, Bambi left another to die to save Prince for her. They made multiple sacrifices not to mention roy and the mother. Wasted 10 hours on this bullshit.

    Worst ending ever! The reason why Amber doesn’t want to go back with Prince is because he was responsible for her getting kidnapped by hiding the military beacon device I. Her backpack. Also, the crack to the skull she got when she fell headfirst into some rocks trying to escape was a lot more than a superficial injury. she needs a brain scan when she gets back.

    Worst ending ever. You do not tip your marriage in like that. You at least give it a shot. I think she has has mind altering drugs or a brain injury

    Ending was such garbage, he should have left that crazy ungrateful bitch to rot and stuck with the fine a*s secretary. And you would not go that crazy in 2 months sitting in a cell with fresh air, food, no one raping you, getting out to work etc…, she was total drama. Too many people died for her, end of story.

    Everyone, every group, every government shows dissonance between the means to their ends and responsibility for the damage along the way… Everyone except Bambi, whom I find is the most honorable. He does have blood on his hands though, and knows it.

    Bambi is the only person who sees the reality of all of this carnage, his role, and is most accountable within his own understanding of everything that transpired. Prince, Amber, Violetta, Mitch, the Army Captain, the President of Venezuela and everyone else sees what they want to see, ignores what they want to ignore, and frames their view on a way that creates space for dishonest assessment of fault, accountability or notion of potential danger. When horrors happen, they seem surprised but the ignorance of danger is quite obvious.

    Illuminating this phenomenon is fascinating and speaks truth to how we humans are. I think the title speaks to our 1st impression of reality, how it fits within our concept of community, and how it fits in our concept of the world
    Each echo is just that, an echo of truth but not THE truth. What’s funny is I think the title was an Easter egg left for us, not some clever military lingo title.

    Anyway, we want results and don’t care how it happens. We contribute to bigger problems, yet don’t claim any real responsibility. We distance ourselves from people issues and cling closer to ideals of what we think people are or should be.

    Echo 3 is a terrific screenplay with complex characters.
    I think there’s a sequel here to develop these themes further, but I don’t see a continuation of these characters or plot. What we’ve received is a perfect imperfection which runs parallel to the bigger themes in this story. Well done…

    Consider these ideas and you’ll see echoes of what other people track in within their comments. It’s clear as day that people are pulling in from their own life experiences and focused less on the piece and more on themselves. Perhaps it’s just another echo of truth.
