Glitch season 1, episode 10 recap – the ending explained
In this episode, Bora returns to Ji-hyo because she has seen the light and knows what it is. Missionaries and worship leaders all sing for the light. Meanwhile, Bora follows him until he disappears. Seo ends up giving Ji-hyo a beautiful frilly white dress to wear during the ceremony. Youngi catches Bora looking for energy with her meter and she enters the restricted area.
They both see the UFO outside about to fall. Now Father says that Ji-hyo was under hypnosis and those memories are not real. He asks if she can call them. He takes advantage of her by giving her tea containing drugs. Returning to Bora and Youngi, they see that the light is actually just a drone that was used as a performative act by the cult.
This completely drains Bora because everything she thought was real was just a lie. Then, while Ji-hyo is unconscious, the Father begs her to be the “Messiah” because of the prophecy. He tells her that everything that happened to her was a lie and that she just needs to play her part as “Messiah” now. She must force them to commit mass suicide. While Bora is in the restricted area, the rest of her friends come to rescue her at the right time as security was about to catch her. According to the Father, no alien exists and it’s all fabricated because he is sadistic.
Ji-hyo is out of body and completely trapped in her mind. She cannot speak properly and actions are taken for her. Ji-hyo saw things all the time and thought she was crazy. She starts crying because everything she ever believed in was a lie. The light then shines on the crowd after the smoke creates the illusion.
The necklaces worn by the missionaries all contain poison and they are about to take it at the right time. Ji-hyo managed to break through the drugs and warn them. She confesses everything to them.
They all spit the pill out and now the detective arrives just in time with Sikook. Youngi also shoots down the drone and causes panic among the crowd as they slowly realize it’s all fake. Youngi tries to shoot the Father but misses and everyone scatters.
Bora B-lines Ji-hyo and times to help her get out of the chains. Once Ji-hyo is free, the mob turns on her and ends up chasing her because of the lies she told. Younson again, still there, looks up at the sky as she senses the real presence of the aliens.
Within moments, the actual UFO appears from the sky and heads towards Earth. Bora and Ji-hyo are on the ground now watching the UFO and Ji-hyo is abducted again. We get to see inside and that she’s not really crazy.
The Problem end
After all that, they really believe in it and because the tracker came out of Ji-hyo, she feels like a weight has been lifted. She always goes to her therapist and just talks to him about the consequences of everything. Bora continues to make a documentary about all this and she wants to start a new project. Ji-hyo and Bora run the alien forum together, and Ji-hyo is now a household name.
The post-credit scene shows Sikook encountering the same alien as he grows in front of him similarly to Ji-hyo. So now he believes in it and the cycle could happen again with him. But this time we would know the truth.
The end of this series is definitely open to interpretation. It is also possible that Sikook was abducted and the cycle is now broken. Aliens could eventually stay on Earth with them and live in unity with humans. No one will ever be harmed and they can simply co-exist with only those who are abducted upon seeing them.
