There are several scenes that show elder Kelly wistfully looking out from her nursing home at what looks an awful lot like the ocean by her house in San Junipero. Since her nursing home is in Carson City, Nevada- which has no coastline- this is impossible. However, it is very likely that Kelly's view was never intended to be that of an ocean, as Nevada's capital sits on the shores of another large body of water- Lake Tahoe. See more »


Elder Kelly: [makes a cute old lady face] Think you could hook us up to the system now? Just for a little while, before she passes.
Greg: You can still see her afterwards. I mean, then she's no limits, full, fat, permanent San Juniperan.
Elder Kelly: [makes an even cuter old lady face] I know, but can you?

One of the best episodes in television
4 December 2016 | by whisperme-62486See all my reviews

There are no words to describe how perfect this episode was, I was always impressed by the darker theme of this TV series and the way it portrays humanity's future in a dire way.

This episode managed to showcase that, but with a happier ending, without dropping any quality that Charlie Brooker accustomed us in other episodes, his ideas and writing are stunning and I didn't even get to talk about the acting, which was also incredible, as well as the design of the scenes, it felt so genuine and when I thought it can't get any better, there came the soundtrack, it was just sublime, combined with the wonderful acting of the two women and with the perfect cinematography.

This episode was truly a masterpiece.
