Well, if you are nodding your head while reading this, you need to stick with us till the end.
- What was the connection between ‘Two and a Half Men’ and ‘Black Mirror’?
- What do the co-creators have to say about the finale episode of ‘Two and a Half Men’?
Was there really a link between ‘Two and a Half Men’ and ‘Black Mirror’ in the finale episode?
Well, we can’t really say if there was a crossover between these two shows. However, it is speculated that maybe the lead actors are not giving any performance and are stuck inside the sitcom.
In the finale episode, we were shown that Charlie is presumably dead, but the reality is the opposite of it. In fact, Charlie was kept captive. We discover this when Rose is seen providing food to Charlie. But, as we move forward toward the finale, we can see that Charlie is inching closer towards death. In the last few minutes, a piano almost falls on Charlie’s head, with the background voice screaming, “THE DEVIL HAS PLANS FOR JON AND ASHTON! BACK TO THE FIRE AND PIT WITH YOU, CHARLIE”.
Just then, the creator of the show Chuck Lorre enters the frame, making us all realize that this was all a part of the TV show. Before we could process all that we saw, Chuck purposely or maybe not, drops the piano on Charlie’s head. What was the thinking behind this ending?
Let’s clear the confusion about the finale through Chuck Lorre’s direction
In a conversation with “Entertainment Weekly”, Chuck explains the ending of ‘Two and a Half Men’. When asked about his appearance in the show, he said, “Oh, it felt funny. It felt like the funniest and most succinct way to end the damn thing. And dropping the second piano also felt like an appropriate response—perhaps nobody wins, but hopefully, we laughed along the way”.
He was further asked about the storyline of the finale episode and why did it include so many self-composition aspects? On this Chuck said,
“It was our last swing at that bat. Why not throw the rules out and do everything we can imagine that might be funny and acknowledging the meta elements of the show? We’re not going to find out how he met his mother. This isn’t about how they get on the island”
