I will try not to spoil it, because I do think it’s worth watching! The episodes always end with you wanting to know more (and the last unfortunately is no different).
Her mother and father, find out where she is and show up. She doesn’t recognise them, until her mother walks over to her bed and grabs OA’s hands and places them on her own face. A confused nurse (and audience) asks the father what’s going on, and he explains that when she went missing she was blind. Intrigued yet? I was.
She needs five people who are strong and brave, and he is to bring them to her. Series of events happen and OA has her five band of misfits. She begins telling them a tale in an abandoned home. An unbelievable tale filled with growing up in Russia, coming to America as a young girl, being adopted, trying to find her father, being captured and detained, near death experience, supernatural abilities, falling in love, getting her sight back, dying over and over, and much more.
The show is a roller coaster, and definitely hits you in the feels on occasion. You’re left the whole time wondering, if this masterfully told story actually happened or is she making it up?
It is brilliantly shot, and there is so much detail that it requires you to think back and piece things together that you saw before once you have new information from later episodes. This is not a show that you will watch and forget, moving on to the next one. It will stick in your mind for weeks to come.
I also don’t think they should do a season 2. You’re left with a lot of questions, but none that would really warrant a second season, and if you did force a second season the tonal change and shift in the actual themes and plot of the story would be jarring, especially once they chose which route to actually take the story. You are going to alienate half your audience that was wanting the story to go the other way.
There are some great fan theories on this show that really make you think about it in a different way, so after watching it, and having some time to digest it in your thoughts, go ahead and check those out.
