Spoiler Alert: If you haven’t seen The End Of The Fucking World, go watch the first season on Netflix now!

The End Of The Fucking World is based on a graphic novel by Charles Sanford Forsman. It follows two teenagers, a self-proclaimed psychopath (James) and a rebel (Alyssa), who embark on a road trip while falling in love.

The first season of the Netflix series covers the entire storyline that occurs throughout the graphic novels. SPOILER ALERT: The last episode ends with a gunshot and a fade to black, suggesting James was killed by the police, which is what happens in the comics.

However, since there is a second season set to be released by Netflix, viewers are unsure whether the assumption they made during the cliffhanger ending was completely wrong.

Will James survive the shot and be taken to trial? Will he die on impact like we originally thought? Will the show jump to another point in time, back when he was still alive? Or will it focus on different characters, like Alyssa on her own, living without him?

Fans are rewatching the first season, looking for clues and coming up with theories. They are trying their best to predict which narrative possibilities will be explored in the second season. It’s hard to guess what will happen, but everyone is hoping the show will find a way to continue the couple’s story without ruining the preexisting ending everyone loved so much.

One of the most popular theories has to do with James’ voiceover. Throughout the season, he speaks in past tense while Alyssa’s voiceover is in present tense. He doesn’t switch to present tense himself until the very last line of the last episode.

Some viewers believe everything James said prior to that last line is him looking back on his life and recalling the events that happened — possibly to a police officer after being arrested or to a jury ready to sentence him.

Judging by the way the gunshot was shown (or, really, not shown) and the news of a second season, James seems to have a much better chance of surviving on the show than he did in the original version.

In the graphic novels, the cop who finds him cuts off some of his fingers and slices his cheek with a knife. Another cop ends up holding a gun directly at him and firing. Since the ending on the show wasn’t as in-your-face obvious, there is a possibility James was shot somewhere nonfatal — or was not even shot at all.

Since the first season ended in the same exact place where the graphic novel ended, it’s impossible to tell where The End Of The Fucking World is headed for season two. There are a million different paths the writers could choose to follow. There are a million different stories that could unfold.

Unfortunately, even though we are dying to find out the fate of James and Alyssa, we are going to have to wait a little longer to see what went down after the gunshot. In the meantime, we can keep coming up with theories of our own. TC mark
