This article is about the Netflix Darlings movie ending, which will contain spoilers.
The end of darlings really plays into the dark comedy aspect of the film. Badru wants Hamza to suffer as much as she does. This is how angry she was after enduring years of abuse. After losing her daughter to Hamza pushing her down the stairs, she hatches a plan to get revenge on him. She calms him then keeps him tied to the table.
She knows exactly what she needs to do to feel better. The power has changed in the house and now she has control over him and any situation. She does the same thing to him that he did to her, as he begs her not to hurt him. There are a million scenarios going through her head and her mother helps her through it all.
Netflix movie darlings ending explained
After recording Hamza’s confession and forcing his hand to post it on social media, she puts him to sleep again. This time, she ties him to a train track to let a train pass over him. She looked at him as the train was about to arrive and thought of all the abuse she had endured. Why did she lower herself to his level? She became like him and she would just watch him die and then take that with her forever?
Instead, she unties him and uses her voice to drown him out. He begs her to take him back and that he will change, but she rejects him. He begins to warm up with her, and he goes back on the track without even realizing it. Then, a train ends up hitting him and he dies. Not by Badru’s hand, but by his anger and disdain towards his ex-wife. What this shows is that karma comes full circle, if you trust your instincts and stick to your principles.
