Goons would do anything to troll and grief all other residents anyway to make them unplug.
So in the end they would be on a server populated only by goons.

If that isn't a bleak horror ending i don't know...

This is literally the first time I've seen anyone suggest that it's a horror ending. It's the one single episode of Black Mirror where the technology is shown to have a (slightly unsettling but) positive impact.

Due to the nature of the show I was expecting Kelly to never come back to Yorkie, but she does. I also think if they wanted the takeaway to be negative they wouldn't have included the option to disconnect whenever you want.

I also think its a happy ending. The goon server was a joke.

Be Right Back also has a somewhat positive ending, and unless i'm mistaken so does National Anthem.

Ehhhhhh, Be Right Back's ending seems to me that she ultimately failed and never got over her dead ex, didn't read as very positive to me.

National Anthem's ending is pretty sad too, dude's marriage is destroyed and for what? Nothing.

Just bring your ass to where they got me
So you can feel the hand of the dead body

Didn't he get a small raise in the polls?

He was about even from before, if I recall correctly. You also see small mentions of him in other episodes like a tweet that he was banned from the National Zoo, or another news story about him getting divorced.

I more like read it that she banned the droid to the attic, and only let her child go up there once a year to briefly get to know what her dad was like.
It is not know if she goes up there on her own for some other stuff, wink , but I did understand that the droid does not take part in her normal regular life.

Yea but I don't see any sort of new man in her life, I highly doubt any dude is willing to date someone who keeps a living reminder of their ex, so to me it reads like she permanently broke her capacity to enjoy love again.

Like, she should have just gotten therapy instead and could probably have moved on and had a healthy life, but this stupid service ruined that option.

Brooker probably knew that people were conditioned to believe that it would have a tragic ending since he literally had Yorkie saying that it wasn't a trap.

The lady keeps a living imitation of her dead boyfriend in her attic. Lady is crazy.

I mean it's not even like he downloaded his memory into the robot, it's just a rough approximation of his mannerisms and langauge patters cobbled together from social media. She may as well have just paid a rentboy to have plastic surgery and live in her loft pretending to be her dead boyfriend. Not happy at all imho.

Plus that kid is gonna grow up to be hosed up, imagine if your dad was a Roomba that runs on facebook that your mom kept secretly chained up in your loft. Kids gonna need a lot of therapy.
