The Snow Girl Ending Explained: In the Netflix original movie The Snow Girl (La chica de nieve), we meet Miren, a young journalist who becomes engrossed in the mystery of a missing girl, a literal “snow girl,” who vanished from Malaga many years ago.
This six-part Spanish series, adapted from Javier Castillo’s novel of the same name, is the kind of mystery that makes you wish Netflix would stop canceling projects. The series’ conclusion leaves some major mysteries unsolved.
But before we jump ahead and start thinking about season two, we need to delve into how the first confusing season of The Snow Girl concluded. Here we will cover all you need to know about the season finale and the big reveal, so get ready for some serious time travel.
The Snow Girl Ending Explained
Since Amaya’s kidnapping in 2010, Miren has spent the past nine years attempting to piece together what happened to her. With the assistance of a VHS repairman, she has finally made progress. Indeed, neither of us was aware that such things existed.
We thought that the movies of Amaya were shot by a solitary woman named Iris who lives in the hills, but Miren uses his account book to reveal otherwise. Iris made the decision to abduct Amaya from her biological mother after being advised by a fertility specialist that she would never be a mother.
Iris has successfully brainwashed Amaya, who was only five when she was stolen, into thinking that people from the outside world can’t be trusted. As a result, Amaya, now 14 years old, stays out of sight during Miren’s visits to Iris’s house. Fortunately for everyone involved, Miren’s life was cut short when a bank employee learned Iris’ terrible truth.
Though Miren makes it through the visit unscathed by failing to uncover Amaya’s whereabouts, Iris is still terrified by the prospect of being discovered. Following the standard procedure for kidnappers, Iris sneaks away with her “daughter” in the dead of night. But Miren sees them and realizes that Amaya wore the identical headband she sees in the car in one of the newest films.
Next, Iris does what any psychotic kidnapper would do: she drives herself and Amaya off a cliff. It appears that Iris would sooner die than be parted from her captive/”child.” At least, that’s what ends up happening to Iris. Amaya, on the other hand, seems to be built of rather solid stuff, since she manages to survive the collision despite losing her life almost instantly.
Now that Miren has arrived, Amaya is freaking out and pointing a gun in her direction. This hasn’t dissuaded her from standing up for her “mom” to the end. A fight breaks out, but Miren manages to hold her down until the emergency services can arrive and take care of the situation.
Thanks to Miren, Amaya’s parents were able to see her for the first time in nine years. However, Alvaro and Ana are happily ever after delayed, at least initially, due to Amaya’s ongoing suffering from her kidnapping and the deaths of her fake parents. Iris’s death was directly attributable to their search, therefore it shouldn’t come as a surprise that she harbors resentment toward her biological parents. Honest to God, today’s youth.
At least by the end, Amaya is willing to let Alvaro and Ana sit down and watch cartoons with her. That gives them a reason to hope that their daughter isn’t lost to them forever, even if the endless therapy expenses drive them into homelessness.
Breaking Down the Snow Girl’s Shocking Climax
Now that the ordeal is over, Miren writes a book on the investigation into Amaya’s disappearance. Even if the cash starts rolling in, a happy ending isn’t likely just yet. Because two years after the mystery is solved, Iris’s signature appears on an envelope that Miren receives. However, there is no Amaya footage this time around. Rather, there is a picture of a different woman who, like Amaya, was bound against her will and held against her will.
Another disturbing note reads, “Want to play?” on the envelope.
This shocking turn of events at the end of the episode makes a continuation into a second season seem extremely likely. To whom does this latest victim belong? Whose photo was that? Where does Miren fit into this?
Answers can still be discovered in El juego del alma, Javier Castillo’s follow-up book, even if Netflix decides to cancel The Snow Girl (like they have so many other shows recently). In that place, Miren looks into the crucifixion of a New York teenager, whose case may or may not be related to the woman seen in this fresh polaroid…
