Black Narcissus fans divided as gruesome final episode receives mixed response
Black Narcissus viewers were divided over Tuesday's final episode in the three-part series.
Tonight marked the last instalment of the BBC One and FX drama, but the reaction from viewers was completely split.
Some fans were invested in the jaw-dropping drama, while others described the episodes as 'uneventful'.
Adapted from Rumer Godden's 1939 novel of the same name by writer Amanda Coe, the series follows a group of nuns who travel to Nepal for a mission.
Set in the 1930s, the story includes gruesome and erotic scenes based on forbidden love and sexual repression.
The end of the final episode saw Sister Ruth attempt to push Sister Clodagh off of the bell tower.
They both were left dangling over the side of the tall tower, hanging onto the rope.
Clodagh managed to get back up and saved the other nun, but then Sister Ruth jumped over the high edge and plummeted to her death.
Viewers were divided as the series came to a close, as one tweeted: "After 3 episodes and still no sign of anything really happening, I realise the trailer for #BlackNarcissus actually had all the good bits in it."
While another wrote: "Has anyone got even the smallest hint of what on earth is going on?"
"2.5 hours in and nothing has really happened!! Could it be any slower?", penned a third.
Others adored the programme and were completely invested throughout the last instalment.
One said: "This is by far the most invested I’ve ever been in a series where absolutely nothing is happening. Can’t wait to see what doesn’t happen next."
"Final ep of BlackNarcissus, I've been hooked. I personally like the measured pace and feel of it and the cinematography is breathtaking. Love Gemma Arterton (Kent girl!) and Aisling Franciosi is just brilliant – she was great in The Fall too", gushed another.
A third fan said: "Oh. My. God", with an array of heart-eye emojis.
"I thoroughly enjoyed the series. Visually stunning, tense, atmospheric and sensual", added another.
