This article contains major spoilers for the ending of The Tailor Season 1 and goes into detail about the events depicted in The Tailor Season 1 Episode 7.
The Tailor is a Turkish series on Netflix created by Onur Güvenatam but telling what is apparently a true story — an interlocking relationship drama involving a famous tailor named Peyami, his psychopathic childhood best friend Dimitri, and Dimitri’s tortured fiance, Esvet.
The plot is kick-started by Esvet fleeing Dimitri’s clutches and posing as a caregiver for Peyami’s mentally handicapped father, Mustafa, whose existence he has kept a closely-guarded secret. Peyami has no idea who Esvet is, which becomes problematic when he begins to fall for her.
These narrative threads and some other subplots all come to a head in the finale.
The Tailor Season 1 Ending Explained
While the episode begins with a flashforward to Peyami and Dimitri having a fistfight on the ranch, with the latter eventually pulling a gun, there’s a little more to unpack before we get there.
Why is Esvet so important to Ari?
Throughout the season Dimitri’s parents have seemed less devoted to finding his fiancé than he has, but as things progress, we learn that Esvet marrying Dimitri is actually incredibly important to Ari.
As it turns out, Ari and Lia stole her inherited wealth when she was just a child. She technically owns half of all their assets, though she doesn’t know this. Having her marry into the family will obviously stop this from being an issue in the future and will give Ari total control of everything.
Dimitri learns this by earwigging on his parents’ conversation. With this detail, he’s even more determined to find his fiancé than ever, and having figured out where she is, he descends on Peyami’s house and tells his grandmother, in no uncertain terms, that if Peyami doesn’t deliver Esvet to the ranch the next morning, he can’t be held responsible for his actions.
Who is Peyami’s mother?
After the flash-forward, the episode actually begins with Esvet discovering Peyami’s secret identity. As he explains, he’s posing as someone else in order to befriend a man who has knowledge of his birth mother.
Peyami’s grandfather led him on this quest after his death by leaving a note behind, leading Peyami to a box containing a wedding photograph of Mustafa, his mother, and the man, Osman, whom Peyami has been getting close to.
We learn – or at least can surmise – that Peyami’s mother, Kiraz, was, like Esvet, Mustafa’s caregiver. As per the terms of such an arrangement she was married to him, again like Esvet, though at some point she became pregnant by him. Leaving the family home, she entrusted Peyami’s care to his grandfather, and she refuses to meet with him in the present day.
Is Peyami dead?
The bulk of the finale revolves around the tense confrontation between Peyami and Dimitri, which we caught glimpses of at the start of the episode.
This scene is all about escalation. Since we know how unstable Dimitri is, there’s a lot of tension here as Peyami tries to talk him down, even at gunpoint.
Eventually, Esvet arrives, brandishing her own gun, and in the confusion, Peyami is shot.
The series ends with Peyami’s fate unclear. Both Esvet and a suddenly sympathetic Dimitri hover over him as he fades into unconsciousness, though whether he’s really dead – like all of the show’s remaining subplots – is unknown.

there must be a season two or more to finish the story you began and got us all hooked.
There is some seriously great acting going on here. Obviously there will be a Season 2 because at the end of episode 7 we see perhaps a teaser. Not so sure we’re gonna like this next Peyami’s tho.
There better be a second season after I watched all those episodes I’ll go Crazy if I don’t find out what happens. I really like the acting and the story line so hopefully what I read about them filming all 3 seasons at once is true let’s see ?
Well written, well acted and worth the time. And if you like this series, also watch Paper Lives. On Netflix.
Please see, please, bring us a season 2 at least – or more. I love the storyline and actors.
What was the amazing song Peyami played on the flute?
there will have to be a season 2 loved it
