The Truth behind that “Happy” Ending of the Haunting of Hill House

If we look at the end times in this show, the best parts of the program were the last episodes. The best episodes of all 10 episodes were a cold ghost story and a dark mind drama. Steven meets his wife, Shirley and Kevin trying to create new opportunities in their lives. Luke stays awake. Mrs. Dudley also meets their children but in her afterlife. Hugh, Olivia, and Nell are trapped in Hill House, but they still have to rely on each other. Even in the end, Theo, who had been such a good overseer and kept it to himself, ended up having a happy and stable relationship. It is not the end. It was a happy ending that we deserved. 

This was a very unusual ending to a scary series. This was very different. The series highlighted Red Room’s vision and deception. But most fans do not take that picture and face value seriously. On the other hand, the builder of the Haunting of Hill House, Mike Flanagan, emphasizes that the ending really happened. “In this last version, I think it’s very real,” Flanagan told Trillist. “We are committed to that action.

Flanagan understands viewers, he says, “We talked for a very, very long time about putting the Red Room window in the background” during Luke’s triumphant two-year sobriety party, Flanagan says. “I ultimately decided not to. It was too cruel.” Still, Flanagan seems very pleased that fans remain skeptical. “But the suspicion you had was exactly where we were,” he says, “and that kind of makes me very happy.

What Will Happen to Hill House Now?

  1. If Steve decides to do things like Hugh, I believe he’ll just leave you to disperse the filth. Now that Hugh, Nell, and Olivia are invading Hill House they can keep some ghosts in their eyes. For all those who watched the show, do you remember when Olivia tactfully told Poppy Hill to urinate in the last episode when she was mocking Hugh? That moment, with the ghost of Hazel Hill telling Olivia that Poppy is a liar, means that even though the ghosts are what they seem to be – Ghosts! They know each other just as we humans do. The restrictions on Hill House probably force them to reunite. It may seem cool to someone but it may seem scary to many!
