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.
Echo 3 Season 1 Ending Explained
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.
