The first season of Netflix’s thriller-drama Echoes landed on the streaming service on August 19, 2022. Created by Vanessa Gazy, the drama series is the story of two identical twin sisters who decide to trade their lives, including their husbands. The gritty series is about complicated relationships, murder mysteries and a complex psyche. Since the end of the season, fans had some unanswered questions in mind. So let’s discuss what happened at the end of Echoes.
Echoes end declared!
Towards the end of the first season of Echoes, while investigating Gina’s disappearance, Leni discovered that there was an affair between her sister and Dylan Thomas. At the same time, she also had to play herself and Gina for the other members of the family. Sheriff Floss investigated the case of murder at the church and the burning of the church. Gina was blackmailing Leni for money by sending her a picture of the corpse in the burned church. And demanded money to keep her mouth shut about the truth behind the photos. However, Leni found out that Gina wanted the money so she could run off with Dylan.
Meanwhile, when Dylan was killed, Gina tried to frame Leni for the murder by placing the weapon in his car, and Floss held Leni for the murder. At the time of arrest, Leni tried to pin the church on Gina, so she too was arrested. Floss mentioned the uncertainty surrounding the two sisters’ lives. So Gina clarified how she and Leni exchanged lives. In flashback scenes, we see Gina lose her pregnancy. Leni said they switched places and that Gina could take care of her child Mattie. Gina agreed to do the same, and the sisters began to exchange their lives annually.
Leni and Gina had to be released because Floss could not definitively identify them individually. Gina went to Victor, who breathed his last. Just before his death, Victor admitted to killing their mother Maria. When Leni got there, she found that her father had passed away. Gina challenges her sister about Dylan’s murder, to which the latter replies that it was an accident. The house catches fire while they are fighting. Leni follows her sister Gina as they both run away
Why did Victor kill Maria?
In the first season, before his death, Victor confessed to Gina that he killed Maria as she asked him to. She was terminally ill and had a negligible chance of survival, so she chose the easy way out as there was no hope left for her. Maria spent her last days with her daughters Leni and Gina in their garden, and they rejoiced together at the arrival of the blossoms. As she passed through these moments, she realized how much pain she was in when she would soon leave this world.
Victor and Maria had a conversation and came to the conclusion that Maria should commit suicide. Victor may have felt compelled to kill Maria to end her suffering after seeing how miserable she was. He drowned Maria in the bathtub so that his wife would have to suffer.
