The show does a good job of making the audience feel for each character, each with an inner struggle, which leads to an uplifting ending and an ending, if Netflix gave season 2 more suspense another Adapted from Green Lantern.
A Tense Encounter Between Miren and Iris
Everything that happened between episodes one and five led up to this moment. audience knows Once Miren finds out Iris' name, she'll soon find her. After the bodies of David Luke (Tristan Ulloa) and James Foster are discovered, the encounter is amplified when Mirren finds himself portrayed as a suspect on news broadcasts. Realizing her back was against the wall, she knew it was now or never to push Iris and hope to find Amaya. What follows is the most tense scene in the series, with many heart-pounding moments. The scene itself heightens the intensity of what is about to unfold, as Iris and Amaya, who have been using the name Julia for nine years after being taken away, live in an isolated area where there is only one way in and out. No neighbors for miles. That's the very definition of a wasp's nest, after all, audiences have seen Iris fire a shotgun at a bank employee who notifies them of an overdue mortgage. The dialogue between Miren and Iris epitomizes everything the audience knows about Miren, which is that she is a very shrewd person.
Screenplay by Snow Maiden does an incredible job of sending clear cues to the viewer that Mirren begins to connect the dots that Amaya is held in this house. As soon as she sat down in the living room, she noticed the VCR player, which contained two tapes that Iris and her late husband, Santiago, had previously sent her. The headband Iris is wearing is the same fabric that Amaya is wearing in the video she sent. When Miren first arrived, she also noticed a small pink bicycle tucked away in the outback.
Here, the writers let the audience play some detectives while providing clues, since it's clear that Mirren has noticed these things, but leave it to the audience to infer two other hints. The first was about the bike, and then Iris mentioned to Miren that after her husband died, it was just her and her dog in the house. This is a glaring lapse because it doesn't explain why this woman has a little girl's bike in her backyard. The next subtle hint is Miren hears noise from upstairs, it's a combination of dog and Amaya. Iris quickly covered up her voice, saying she put her dog there because it "goes crazy" when people are around. After a few moments, the sound still lingering, Iris proposes to put the dog down. Once downstairs, Miren was greeted by the dogs before being seen relaxing in the kitchen. While Miren doesn't reveal that she may or may not have noticed this, it's fair to assume she noticed the lie Iris told.
A Wild Demise That Leaves Plenty of Pieces to Pick Up
At this point, all involved realized that the other knew what was going on. Iris clearly understands that she has been found out, but Mi Ren firmly believes that this is the woman who abducted Amaya. Throughout the six episodes, the creative team has done a fantastic job of building the characters, and seeing the payoff at this point makes this ending worth the twists and turns. Ultimately, that conversation leads to Iris picking up everything and running away, leading to a very brief car chase with Miren tailgating. It feels like no one can separate her from her "Daughter", Iris drives off the road and goes downhill to meet her death. Amaya, who had been wearing her seatbelt and came out of the crash with more facial injuries than anything else, ended up firing a shot that just grazed Miren's shoulder before she was able to wrestle away the gun and calm the girl down. It's an ugly scene, as the minutes tick by and it's clear that it's not going to end well. Viewers see the rise and fall of Iris, a patient of Amaya's mother who is told that she is less and less likely to want a child of her own. Because of the grim and haunting character transformation Iris undergoes when she decides to kidnap the young girl, the writers knew it was important to nail down the struggle she went through for her final scene in order to pay off like it did.
In the remainder of the episode, Amaya is reunited with her parents, but it's clear she still has a long way to go after nine years of isolation. In Heartbreaking Interaction, She Didn't Respond To The Name Amaya The family is reunited, but her mother ends up calling her Julia, and the walls between parent and daughter collapse slightly, giving viewers hope that time can heal the relationship. Despite playing the hero role, Miren feels nothing after saving the girl. Police still suspect she was involved in the arson attack because they know Mirren learned the dead were part of the dark web that posted her rape video. Viewers also see her camera clipped to two photos that the detectives cracked, portraying Mi-ren as the prime suspect. However, the photo card is destroyed by Eduardo (José Coronado), who does so to protect her. Miren has a lot of interactions throughout the show, but her unwavering relationship with Eduardo proves to be an interesting storyline, and it's in this moment that the audience sees his efforts to keep her safe.
The Meaning of ‘Snow Girl’ Is Revealed
Before the show ended, a two-year time jump began, and Miren, who seemed to have moved on with her life but had no evidence to prosecute her, had just published a book Named Snow Maiden. Naturally, it chronicles her journey to uncover the truth about the kidnapping of Amaya MartÍn. This is where viewers finally learn what the show's title means. Miren explained in the reading that it was about the white static that played at the end of the two tapes sent to her and Amaya's parents to let them know she was fine, "every time they ended, the internal white noise came on the screen At that time, I always saw Amaya, covered with snow, unable to escape." This is why Miren is unwavering in her pursuit of justice. After nine years of searching, she simply couldn't let this girl fall into darkness.
Although Netflix labeled the show a limited series, that doesn't mean the show has come to an end. Before going on camera, Miren received an envelope with the words on the front: "Want to play a game?" Ominous as it is, what's inside really elevates this dark twist to another level when a girl is strapped into the picture. a level. Who is that girl? What does this have to do with Miren? Ultimately, none of this is known, and if Netflix chooses to continue its success beyond the first six episodes, the door will be wide open for a second season.
Snow Girl is now streaming on Netflix.
