Warning: This article contains spoilers for Master of None‘s season two finale.
If, like us, you binged Master of None‘s excellent season two over the weekend, you’ll have been as frustrated as us at the final shot.
The second season tackled everything from religion to Tinder-esque online dating, but still left Dev (Ansari) in a will-they-won’t-they situation with new character Francesca (Alessandra Mastronardi) who he met in Italy.
And it played out in a surprising way during the finale, with spoilers to follow after the trailer.
Early on in the finale ‘Buona Notte’, Dev and Francesca share a kiss before she decides to fly back to Italy to marry her fiancé, crushing our Dev’s dreams for the second season in a row after Rachel (Noël Wells) left for Japan in season one’s finale.
But, wait, maybe it’s not all over for Dev and Francesca after we see her watch videos of her time with him, before the episode teasingly cuts to black and comes back with her lying in bed with Dev.
So what does it all mean, especially as Francesca is no longer wearing a ring?
“I kind of wanted to leave it ambiguous and leave it open to people’s interpretations,” Ansari told EW of the final shot.
“I’ve heard some people say it’s a dream, other people say things are going to work out, things are going to be horrible. I want it to be an ending that you have your own interpretation of.”
Ansari’s co-star Mastronardi also revealed that the ending was one of several possible conclusions, including one that would echo back to the first season’s final shot of Dev on a plane.
“Francesca had chosen Pino, and Dev finally found the number of the girl from the first episode of the season. But then he said maybe it’s too much, maybe the audience doesn’t even remember this character,” she explained.
“I think the end that they chose is probably the best one. It’s an open end, but there’s a kind of loneliness in the room, so it lets the audience feel what they want.”
Master of None season one and two are now available on Netflix.
