Awake is available on Netflix! If you want to know the explanation for the ending, read on! Most people have experienced a sleepless night before, but Netflix’s apocalyptic thriller Awake takes that experience to a whole new level. When a mysterious event causes a power outage and prevents people from sleeping, single mom Jill realizes her daughter Matilda, who can still sleep, may have the answers that could save the world.
Of course, with no one asleep, critical thinking on the wane, and paranoia on the rise, things quickly turn sour as Jill tries to find a way to protect her family while searching for answers. And as Jill’s cognitive functions deteriorate as she is not asleep, it becomes more and more difficult for her to understand what is going on and, as a result, it is increasingly difficult for the public to follow.
But don’t worry if you dozed off or just struggled to keep up with the increasingly disoriented tale, check out the explanation for the end of Awake! Before we continue, if you want to know if Awake 2 will ever be released, read this.
EXPLANATION OF THE END OF AWAKE ON NETFLIX!
It turns out that Jill was right not to trust Dr. Murphy. As soon as the psychologist learns of Matlida’s existence, she is ready to open the little girl’s head. But despite the sleep deprivation, Jill manages to save her daughter as chaos descends on the center. Everyone hallucinates and goes crazy, which is not an ideal situation for a military base full of automatic rifles.
Then Noah, Jill’s son, in a state of sleep deprivation, electrocuted himself. Jill and Matilda rush to revive him with a defibrillator, but it doesn’t seem to be working. The night passes in a bath of whole blood. Most everyone is dead in the center, but Jill, who clings to Noah’s body, is still alive. Then suddenly Noah wakes up. He is alive! Either the defibrillator resuscitated him after a delay, or it revived him instantly. But he was so tired he immediately fell asleep.
Matilda discovers a sheriff badge on the floor and remembers that she almost drowned at the start of the film in this car accident, but was brought back to life by a police officer with heart massage. She realizes that she and Noah are truly dead and have been brought back to life. Dying and coming back to life must be the remedy for this “no-sleep” story. Presumably, the old lady who could sleep also died but was resurrected.
Following this logic, they take Jill into the water and drown her. They pull her out of the water and Noah begins resuscitation. The camera zooms in on Jill’s lifeless eyes, then turns black. Then we hear Jill gasp. So the moral of the story is that there is no cure except to die and hope to be revived. And during this time, all of humanity becomes selfish and murderous bastards. Sinister.
WHAT TO UNDERSTAND?
If you remember correctly, earlier in the movie the local priest tells young Matilda about the time he overdosed and was dead for a full minute before being brought back to life, just like Jesus! And the final image of Gina Rodriguez drowning in the water looks a lot like a baptism.
There’s also the story that Shamier Anderson’s character, Dodge, tells about a theory from his grandmother. All the problems in the world could go away in a single generation if everyone could forget all the problematic things they learned and start over.
As for the world event, we are vaguely told that it is a solar flare that has changed the way technology works and also the way sleep works. Hush, don’t think too hard about it. These different puzzle pieces don’t quite fit together. But basically, Gina Rodriguez and her children survived a mass extinction. They will likely be among the few humans living in a whole new world. But at least they can sleep.
