Have you seen the series finale of Bloodline yet? Recently, co-creator Todd A. Kessler spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the end of the Netflix TV show.
The drama centers on the Rayburns, a family with dark secrets who reside in the Florida Keys. The cast includes Kyle Chandler, Ben Mendelsohn, Linda Cardellini, Norbert Leo Butz, Jacinda Barrett, Jamie McShane, Enrique Murciano, Sam Shepard, and Sissy Spacek.
WARNING: BLOODLINE SPOILERS AHEAD!
In the interview, Kessler explained that the last scene of Bloodline is supposed to be open-ended:
It’s meant to leave the audience with answering it for themselves: What is the right thing to do? Is the right thing to do to confess to Nolan about what happened, and that helps clear John’s conscience and may in essence lead to changing the family and changing the family dynamic? But it also puts a huge burden onto Nolan because what is he going to do with that truth? So much of this third season is about putting the audience in the shoes of these characters, trying to align the audience with the characters’ predicament. It’s not meant to write out that whole scene and have it portrayed because in essence we’re watching it play out.”
Kessler later said that he hopes the show and the characters will stick with viewers:
Hopefully the experience of the series and spending time with the characters is one that will resonate and reverberate and maybe comes to mind maybe six months later or a year later or who knows how much afterwards. Our approach in general is not to have all of the ends resolved but hopefully it sticks with you as the characters have stuck with us.”
