This Nicolas Winding Refn Netflix Copenhagen Cowboy Season 1 Episode 6 series recap, “The Heavens Will Fall,” contains spoilers. We are also openly discussing the end of Copenhagen Cowboy season 1.

From the obviously rather insane mind of Nicolas Winding Refn, Copenhagen Cowboy is a deliberately confusing spectacle, a kaleidoscopic and macabre dreamscape that does not adhere to the usual rules of the genre or the basic structure of storytelling. We’ve already recapped the first five episodes, but here, in our summary of the finale, “The Heavens Will Fall,” which opens the story to surprisingly wide proportions, we’ll attempt to summarize and explain the plot of the series and visual motifs as succinctly as possible.

Of course, much of this is open to interpretation and most is left deliberately unclear, so there’s a lot of speculation going on here, but we’ll do what we can.

Copenhagen Cowboy Season 1 Episode 6 Recap

So the basics. Miu is considered a lucky charm, witch, or alien, depending on who you ask. We meet the short-haired and often poorly dressed young woman when she is bought by a woman named Rosella, who runs a sex trafficking operation exploiting illegal immigrants – otherwise known as illegals. aliens, which will count later – with his abusive brother. Rosella wants a baby but is unwilling to pay the asking price to have one. When she apparently becomes pregnant and apparently miscarries, she becomes afraid of Miu and passes her on to her brother, Andre.

It’s through André’s escort service that Miu connects with the sinister Nicklas, in a variety of ways. For one thing, Miu befriends one of the girls, Cimona, whom Nicklas then strangles to death on a pig farm. But through the image of Miu that André uses to advertise, Nicklas becomes obsessed with her, and their paths are destined to cross sooner rather than later.

After escaping Andre, Miu becomes involved with other nefarious types, but her main conflict is with Nicklas, who quickly emerges as a rival to her power and supernaturalism. Even though when they collide, Miu is easily able to beat him, Nicklas doesn’t get away very easily. He undergoes something of a rebirth, and explicit parallels are drawn between him and his eccentric family and Miu herself.

While Copenhagen Cowboy is free of backstory, it clearly shows that something is wrong with Miu. His powers are real, even if his nature is mysterious. All theories are viable, from an avenging angel giving human form, to a witch and an alien. The latter is perhaps the most likely and would make the most thematic sense, but there’s a chance that even Refn won’t know at this point.

Nevertheless, Nicklas is suspicious of Miu’s power and so sets about reviving his sister, Rakel, with a bizarre Oedipal blood ritual involving his seductive mother. In this way, Rakel is brought back to life, and upon finding food, she regains full supernatural strength, though the series is also suspicious of her own nature. Nicklas has some of Rakel’s power, but not the same kind of experience or control. Immediately, she is a threat to Miu and a being of obvious wickedness and power. She wants to destroy Miu out of the gate and reveals to Nicklas that she is “one of many”, an idea we see visualized when we see her walking through a forest and meeting several girls who look very similar, all dressed in blue. Are these facets of Miu’s identity? His clan? Aliens from the same planet? No one knows for sure, but the idea that there are many versions of Miu with similar powers, and beings like Rakel who oppose them, greatly expands the scope of the story.

End of season 1 of Copenhagen Cowboy

Throughout the series, Miroslav, a lawyer with a connection to Miu’s past, is our primary story source. In the finale, he facilitates a cameo by Hideo Kojimaof all peoples, the beloved creator of the Solid metal gear series, which refers to Miu as a “spirit” and advises Miroslav to seek help from the Giants, as they are the only ones who can fight Miu.

We know nothing of the Giants. It could be anything from a secret society to a more powerful race than Miu belongs to. But, given that this information is relayed by Kojima, who knows a thing or two about the incredibly weird and convoluted storytelling, I don’t imagine it’s anything simple. After a full season of Copenhagen Cowboysimple would not really suffice.
