The OA, “Overview”

Trippy ending, I'll give them that. Wonder where they'll go from here. It was nice to finally get some answers, and I liked the part about all the construction workers going crazy.

But, when all is said and done, the story leaves me feeling sad. No matter what OA does, she'll never be rid of HAP or apparently really get a chance to connect with Homer and her friends. It's not a happy ending or a sad ending, just an ending. She's trapped in an endless cycle of loss and rediscovery, tethered to her tormentor. And even death isn't a release.

For everything we've seen, OA calls herself an angel. What if she's really in hell, spending an eternity locked in a hopeless battle with a man she hates?
