If you have not looked Russian doll, Hurry up and finish it Sexual education and the Fyre Festival documentary and add it immediately to your Netflix list. Do not read this either, because there is a lot of the season that you are going to get tired! Briefly, the eight-episode TV series Nadia – played by Natasha Lyonne, of whom you will know best Orange is the new black – as she dies time after time. The worst part of this Groundhog Day-soft black comedy? She continues to die and revives her 36th birthday. To make things even more confusing, Nadia meets a boy named Alan, who seems to be suffering the same fate as she. They soon discover that their lives are connected, because they both die at the same time.
The last episode – entitled Ariadne who, in Greek mythology, was a princess who was in charge of a labyrinth, and helped the man she loved, to escape after he killed the Minotaur in it – seemed to avoid their path to self-destruction and return to their original timelines together.
Nadia and Alan finally realize that on the night of their first death they crossed each other's path – and agreed to die again, so that they could interrupt that timeline and save each other's lives. Although we now know the infectious number that plays on the loop almost every time Nadia revives the same evening, the finale also left us with a lot of other theories and unanswered questions. Enough to justify a potential second season …
Now a Reddit user has come up with a theory that makes the show look much darker than we had imagined. User Tempus_Waffen wrote: "In Russian Doll, Nadia and Alan are connected and dying at the same time, we see this in the later episodes, we also see that Alan is committing suicide, and I think Alan has the Groundhog & # 39; s Day situation much earlier. figured out then Nadia and attempted suicide far more than he remembers – or wants to let Nadia know.In episode 2 of Russian Doll Nadia tries to leave the party and she continues to die on the stairs.This is because Alan immediately to the roof of his building goes and jumps out to kill itself. "
In episode 2 Nadia falls down the stairs and dies three times in quick succession, before being struck over the handrail for the fourth time.
There are countless hidden moments and Easter eggs in it Russian doll, but the above theory sounds pretty convincing. Other Redditors offered their thoughts, including one user who wrote: "Great theory, but I think there is a hole." If he did not remember the first time he committed suicide, why would he keep doing it as soon as he wakes up? was I? & # 39; & # 39; I think you're right, I wanted them to show a side by side of every death so that we could see how they were connected, "wrote another. Interesting.
