A famous actress comes to make a cameo at the very end of the season of Netflix comedy, The Woman Who Lived Across from the Girl in the Window. Funny, iconic and potentially opening up a season 2.
Warning, this article contains spoilers. If you haven’t seen the ending of The Woman Who Lived Across The Window, don’t read this.
Almost immediately after solving the central mystery at the heart of The Woman Who Lived Opposite the Girl in the Window, a second mystery takes place around the woman sitting next to Anna (Kristen Bell) on the plane taking her. At New York.
The latest episode of the series shines the spotlight on Buell (Cameron Britton), the perfect candidate to be the killer. But upon entering Neil’s house, Anna finds the handyman lying on the floor and lying in his blood. As for Neil, we find him on his couch with his throat cut.
That leaves only one possible culprit: Emma (played by Samsara Yett), the 9-year-old daughter of Neil (Tom Riley), who confesses to Anna that she killed her pregnant mother, her schoolteacher and the girlfriend of his father, Lisa. What follows is a fight to the death between Anna and Emma, which ends with Anna stabbing the young murderess in the chest with a shard from her broken pan. It’s pretty spooky on paper, but hilarious on screen.
A year later, Anna and Douglas (Michael Ealy) remarried and had another baby. Anna leaves her husband and baby for a girls’ weekend with Sloane and sets sail for New York, where she sits next to a well-dressed businesswoman played the “grande dame of the psychological thriller”, Glenn Close, eight times nominated for the Oscars, and became iconic with her role as a psychopath in Fatal Liaison.
Rachel Ramras, co-creator of the series, still can’t believe it. In an interview at TV Lineshe tells how it happened:It was an elevator pitch, basically. I was with her and her manager, and she listened and said, ‘I want to do this.’ I was, of course, scared to meet such a legend, but she couldn’t have been funnier or more playful.“
In the middle of the flight, Anna gets up to go to the bathroom and finds the woman played by Glenn Close dead, visibly murdered! Anna rushes to inform the stewart, but when he goes to check for himself, he finds an empty toilet. And because a twist isn’t enough, the steward tells Anna that no one has ever sat next to her.
Anna goes back to her seat and tries to calm down. Maybe the mixture of vodka and anti-anxiety drugs caused her to hallucinate the woman in seat 2A, next to hers. But a few moments later, Anna finds a small mirror that must have fallen from her neighbor’s purse, paving the way for a hypothetical season 2…
