In this article, we will discuss the plot and the ending of one of the best series of recent time Into the Night. Belgium’s first Netflix Original Series. The Sci-fi drama was released on May 1, 2020. And it consists of 6 episodes. The show is directed by Jason George and Distributed by Netflix.
Into the Night the Sci-fi Thriller starts with an introduction of solar events where if any person comes into the contact of Sunlight he or she will die instantly because of the Radiation. A former soldier Terenzio notices the scenario and uses the opportunity to hijack an Airplane in Brussels. And without explaining his intention of the hijack he forces the pilot to fly the plane in the direction of West.
The pilot and the air-staff in there started to comply with him. Then when he shares his intention about the hijack that anyone who sees the daylight will die instantly because of the sun’s radiation. Nobody believes him first but after they witnessed the condition in the next pit-stop and the news, they understood that Terenzio was not joking.
With this panic and fear rambling around their head the aircraft pilot and passengers now agree that they should listen to Terenzio’s advice and they should fly towards the west. But as they further advance with the passage, the pain of losing there loved ones and anxiety for the surviving causes complete worst condition to everyone. Soon they started plotting hefty politics between themselves even a few of tried to establish power by influencing others. With all these going on inside the aircraft they soon learn that it’s not the humans who are being killed by the radiation every living and organic thing on planet earth is getting destroyed by sun’s radiation.
And somewhere down the road, a group of passengers finds a Russian radio signal that subtly implies that there might be some people who knew how to survive through this. So they, therefore, decide to take a deviation and should look for the location. This is when Rik and one of the passengers of the aircraft attains an old CCTV Footage which discloses that an old survival camp has been set up somewhere in Bulgaria. The project was named ‘Star’ and the radio signal which the discovered at first originated from there only.
Into the Night: The Ending Explained
The Crew finally lands on Bolivia after resolving all the struggles to find the survivor camp they first split into two teams. One of the groups gets were able to find the location and reached there just before the time. Another group Sylvie and her group encounter the final hurdle. The gate from the survivor area has been kept open from someone from the inside. So Sylvie uncuffs Terenzio and drops his keys away from him and instructs him to wait for the other group to arrive in his position. The other group, however, takes the wrong route but still ends up finding the camp. So Terenzio was the only one left behind and meets his end as everyone.
In the closing moments of the show, we saw the leader of the survivor camp discussing a plan with Sylvie that they had found a way to stop this Solar Radiation and save the world. Which I think is a hint towards the second season of Into the Night. There is plenty of chance that the show will definitely be renewed for a second season.
