I believe you
The show was filled with ambiguity, and dealt with the biggest issues of grief, loss, and faith. Faith in the biggest sense of the word, and faith in the most personal sense- the faith we have in each other. Was Nora telling the truth? Was Nora lying?
Does it matter?
Kevin comes clean to Nora. He remembers her. He didn't know what to say. So he decided that ... he was going to move past all of that and just start fresh, and have another chance. All that time he was fighting her ... he gave up. That didn't matter.
But you were right. It's not true. That's how I found you, Nora. I ... I refused to believe you were gone.
So what does Nora do? Does she come clean with her story? Or did she just need him to believe that story so she could move past it?
What do you believe? What provides you closure?
Even thinking about it now gives me shivers. Seriously, I know not everyone likes the same things ... but that was just pure art, of the kind you rarely see. I remember the same feeling when I read Pale Fire
, and every single time I recall that ending, I am just overjoyed that someone had the vision and the fortitude to treat viewers like adults.
Okay, that's my artsy-fartsy rant for today.
