This Is How The Haunting Of Bly Manor's Ending Can Be Explained
*SPOILERS LIE WITHIN*
The ending of The Haunting of Bly Manor left some viewers a bit confused - with many wondering if Dani had actually returned when she put her hand on Jamie's shoulder.
The final image of the Netflix series, a new series from the team behind the immensely popular Haunting of Hill House, gave people hope that the two lovers had been reunited in some way - if not literally, then at least spiritually.
But, as is an ongoing theme through the show, it seems that the persistence of memory is more likely to be behind the appearance of Dani's hand on Jamie's shoulder - the very final shot of the touching final scene.
Jamie - who turns out to be the narrator of the whole tale - has a conversation with a grown-up Flora on the eve of her wedding, just after the rehearsal.
After telling the tale, she tells Flora - who has no idea that she is part of the whole thing - that it's not a ghost story, but a love story.
She talks about the 'easy silence' that the couple enjoyed - it implies that while Dani may be dead, having sacrificed herself to save Jamie, she will live on in Jamie's memory.
If you still haven't had enough of Bly Manor, which landed on the streaming service on 9 October, you can actually speak to Flora on the phone.
Well, kind of.

"If you're calling about the open nanny position, interviews will be conducted by our uncle Henry in five days.

A gimmick? Well, yeah. Creepy? DEFO.
