Fans of Echoes Netflix are left with a lot of doubts regarding what will happen to the series’ two main characters, Leni and Gina, after the conclusion of the series.
The unsettling Netflix series also stars Michelle Monaghan, Matt Bomer, Karen Robinson, Daniel Sunjata, and Jonathan Tucker. Monaghan plays both Leni and Gina in the series.
The plot of the seven Echos episodes revolves around identical twin sisters who have been switching identities behind their parents’ backs ever since they were children. The absence of one of the twins throws both of their worlds into disarray despite the fact that everything appears to be running nicely in both of their lives.
There were many unexpected turns and twists, but nobody seemed to know what became of Leni and Gina in the end. The season finale of Echoes series is streaming on Netflix, and we have everything you want to know about it.
What Really Happens in the Netflix Series ‘Echoes’?
Gina McCleary, an accomplished writer who lives in LA with her spouse Charlie Davenport, who is portrayed on Echoes by Daniel Sunjata, is one of the first characters we meet as the series starts. When Jack, her twin sister’s husband, phones to inform her that Leni has gone missing, she has no choice but to make the trip back to Mount Echo, their childhood home.
Gina and Charlie have a totally different life than Leni & her spouse, Jack Beck (Matt Bomer), who live on a farm and raise their daughter Mattie. Leni and Jack run the farm together.
In further revelations, it is shown that Leni is not actually Leni at all, nor that they were still dating each other, but their relationship ended when a fire broke out in a church where they were having sexual encounters. A man who had been staying in the chapel passed away while he was there. Leni was able to convince Gina to end her relationship with Dylan by pointing the finger of blame at him for the fire. However, it was subsequently discovered that Leni was the one who started the fire because she was angry at Dylan for driving Gina away from her.
We also learn that when they were younger, Gina pushed their elder sister Claudia over a railing, but Leni was the one who actually did it. Gina accepted the responsibility for it, but Leni was the one who did it. Claudia’s need for a wheelchair and her bond with Gina were both irreparably damaged as a result of the fall.
When Gina was a teenager, she made an effort to put some space between herself and her mother, Leni, by going to Los Angeles, finding Charlie, and beginning a career as a novelist. Gina miscarried her baby, and after Leni gave birth to Mattie, she started suffering from postnatal depression and nearly let the baby drown. The twins fell pregnant at the same time, but Gina miscarried her baby, and Leni almost let Mattie drown. Because Leni and Gina were worried about Mattie’s well-being, they decided to adopt the life swap plan so that Gina could look after the infant while Leni recovered in Los Angeles.
Following this, a year before her departure under the alias “Leni,” Gina learned that her sister had approached a literary agent with a proposal for a book about her unsuccessful pregnancy. She also found out that her husband Charlie had been writing about the fact that he knew all along that she and Leni had switched lives and had been keeping a journal about it. As a result of this, Gina began her year at Mount Echo with a sense of betrayal on the part of both her sister and her husband. After that, there was a random meeting with Dylan.
What Happens at the End of the Netflix Series ‘Echoes’?
In the final Echoes episodes, Gina and Leni manage to get away from their childhood home before it is wholly consumed by fire, but they are unable to save their father, Victor, who died inside the house. Because of his cardiac ailment, Victor passed away just a few minutes before the fire started.
Gina wants to escape as far away from her sister as possible after coming to the realization that her sister has been attempting to exert control over her life ever since they were young and has even killed Dylan in an effort to prevent Gina from escaping. Leni follows Gina through the woods and tells her that she wants them to have their old relationship back where it was just the two of them.
They end up arguing in a river, and Leni tells Gina that she witnessed their father kill their mom by drowning her in the bathtub years ago (this explains the flashbacks to drowning that we have seen throughout the episodes). The conversation continues with Gina informing Leni that Victor drowned his wife at her request because she was sick and desired to pass away in her own time and manner.
This information comes as a complete surprise to Leni, given that the passing of her mother is the primary motivation behind her desire to maintain such a strong relationship with Gina throughout the course of all these years. Gina refuses to listen to her pleadings for Leni to “come back” to her and instead decides to jump off the waterfall.
The scene then cuts to Leni being questioned by the authorities, during which it is disclosed that Gina is probably already deceased. Leni is currently under investigation for the murder of the man who occurred many years ago in the church.
Leni makes a break for it and is able to board a flight to Australia with the help of a phony passport that Gina had created for herself in the event that she and Dylan intended to flee together. Leni is questioned by a woman who works at the airport about whether or not she visited the airport a few days previously. She mentions that a woman who looks exactly like Leni had boarded a flight, which gives the impression that Gina is still alive and has managed to flee the area.
Fans will recall that Gina was practicing her diving skills throughout the final year, posing as Leni in the series. She and Dylan had scuba diving practice in turbulent seas, and as a result, her preparation would have been beneficial for her when she landed at the base of the waterfall.
Next, Charlie may be seen attending a book reading and narrating a portion of the book. He has chronicled his time spent with Leni and Gina in a book that he has authored. At some point during the reading, a woman who could be Leni or Gina appears wearing a large hat and sunglasses and inquires Charlie about the whereabouts of Gina’s body. After some time has passed, Charlie is not taken aback when the same woman walks into his home.
When Charlie asks the woman if she was the one who attended the book reading, the woman answers that she wasn’t there; nevertheless, we are never really sure if she is being truthful. Charlie says to her, “I’ll find out, you know, which one you are.” he is going to find out which one she is.
The woman responds with, “Perhaps. It’s possible that I don’t even know myself anymore.”
She drops a hint that the events in the novel are not yet concluded when she tells Charlie that she has “so many scores to settle.” The last part of the series is when she says, “Starting with you, Charlie.”
So, it was either Leni or Gina who stopped by to see Charlie, wasn’t it? And did everyone see the same woman at the book reading, or are both sets of twins back now? The questions have not been answered as of yet, but the series finale has set the stage for a second season to be produced.
As of right now, there has been no confirmation from Netflix on whether or not Echoes or echos will be renewed for a second season.
