Off hook is about two women, Léa and Manon, trying to find each other without their phones and social media profiles. Predictably, shenanigans ensue. This airy French comedy may not tick all the boxes, but can it at least offer its protagonists something resembling a happy ending? Well, let’s find out.

Off the Hook ending explained

You’ll recall that the incidents prompting the two women to ditch their devices were romantic, in Lea’s case, and professional, in Manon’s case, and that trend continues right through to the finale. Lea’s personal development consists of overcoming Guillaume and learning to love again. The episode therefore focuses on the progress of her connection with Gagan, while Manon continues to pursue success in the music industry.

The best gimmick of the finale is how part of it emulates a good old heist, with everyone working together to break into the Enter the Circle show, and that’s where the two women’s respective subplots join. Lea and Gagan kiss, while Manon shows off her talent. Just in time for the end, things look up for both women.

However, there is always a key thrown in the works. In the case of Léa, it is a sudden promotion that will take her to Martinique when her sentimental life finally looks good. It’s a great opportunity and Gagan encourages her to take it, but their bond is strong for both of them, so the decision isn’t that easy.

Fortunately, a different decision is made for everyone, because at the airport, Lea receives a call from her mother, who was scammed in India and has 24 hours to post her bail. So Lea and Manon, both with their phones back, fly off to India and presumably a second season, with Gagan and Bernie both there to support them.

So it’s a pretty happy ending, at least on a personal level, though it’s worth wondering what the point of the show might be if it picks up with Manon and Lea still in possession of their phones. Another detox? Maybe, but I don’t know how satisfying that would be.

You can stream Off the Hook Season 1 exclusively on Netflix. What did you think of the ending of Off the Hook? Let us know in the comments.
