Jonas Kahnwald wakes up, some time after burning the letter back in episode 7, looks over at his bedside table and on it are his futuristic flashlight, the geiger counter, and the letter (which should no longer exist in that particular timeline). See more »


(2017): Most people are nothing but pawns on a chessboard. Led by an unknown hand. Their lives exist only to be sacrificed for a higher goal. Jonas, Mikkel, the children, they're nothing but unfortunate, yet necessary chess moves in an eternal war between good and evil.

User Reviews

Best of the season.
26 June 2020 | by got24See all my reviews

What this finale made me feel certain was that the season is a slow burner and not at all fast paced which I was expecting it to get from something like Stranger Things. But the slow burn works, and although I don't like that reading subtitles doesn't me focus well on what's off screen I know for certainty that the show is good. I wouldn't know if it's better than Season 1 of Stranger Things, but to me although they are very much alike they are two completely different things in their own ways. Stranger Things is more pop culture and more suitable for kids, while Dark has a more detective feel to it and it's more for adults. I would compare Dark to Harry Potter in a way. Can't wait for the next season, and since this is the best episode of the season I give it a 9.4/10.
