The Resort (Season 1), Episode 7: Recap and Ending Explained
The Resort (Season 1), Episode 7 Recap and Ending Explained: The penultimate episode of The Resort Season 1 is another example of Cristin Milioti’s acting quality. The comedian has incredible range when it comes to more dramatic turns in an otherwise straightforward story.
The final episode, while predictable, slowly settles into the show’s most relevant themes, namely trauma, detachment, and a grating, broken series of midlife crises. The mystery was, of course, a distraction from the issues that have rotted the center of Emma and Noah’s married life, and when it’s finally time to unplug it, it leads to a kind of flashback.
The Resort (Season 1), Episode 7 “La Pubertad del Matrimonio” recap:
The episode picks up with Noah waking up from a terrible hangover with Emma nowhere to be found. He asks Luna about her but ends up unable to find her, returning to the bedroom to find Emma’s tablet on the bed. He opens it and is able to figure out that Emma must have plotted Pasaje’s location and went there alone.
Baltasar wakes up hungover on a golf course in Frias, and suddenly remembers that the book Emma, who has Ibarra’s book, might have what he needs to follow. However, he and Luna argue where Luna does her best to coerce him into submission; telling him to accept that he is at his wits end and that Violet and Sam may have been long dead.
Their argument in Emma and Noah’s suite is cut off by Murray (Violet’s father played by Nick Offerman). He tells them that he got a whole bunch of voicemails from Emma, which was completely nonsensical when she says she found out about Pasaje. Voicemails play as voiceovers as we see Noah trying to determine Pasaje’s location, in order to find his wife.
These voiceovers carefully tell us how Emma is pursuing this Sam and Violet missing case as they represent young love. For someone like her who has hit rock bottom in life, finding out about their history and where they were was kind of a distraction from her boring. She compares the vacation to a wedding where you’re happy the first few days, but then annoyed and still eager to go home afterwards.
Meanwhile, in the 2007 timeline, we see Sam and Violet enter the jungle before camping at the exact spot Emma finds in the current timeline. In the present, Noah tries to retrace Emma’s trail (she lost her way halfway) as they both spot a helicopter together and rush towards each other. The helicopter has Baltsar, Luna, Murray, and the gay couple of Ted and Ted, who we met in the first episode.
Noah and Emma have a huge argument as they argue over Emma’s rash decision to come to the jungle alone, and Noah’s overindulgence in all of Emma’s decisions, including him, the treating like a child who needs nurturing every step of the way. the way. The argument turns to annoyance as the two begin to question their marriage as the main issue in this angst between them. Now that they are in a group, Murray looks around and follows the pink mushrooms. as the gang decides to move to the exact same place Sam and Violet did in 2007.
Around the campfire, they discuss various things, while the question arises of going back or advancing in time. Noah says he’ll go to the future to see what’s going on between him and Emma because his behavior lately has made him question the unpredictability of it all. As everyone falls asleep, only Emma and Murray are left around the fire. The two talk about their sorrows.
Murray tells her how his life changed from husband to caregiver when his wife had cancer. He also tells her how he is haunted by the sight of her last interaction with Violet and how it is slowly fading as well. In return, Emma tells him how she lost her daughter during childbirth. She tells him that she chose not to see his face because she wanted to be strong so people wouldn’t define her by her loss. She goes on to say that if the underground room is real, she would want to see her daughter’s face, and hopes the same for Murray. Murray isn’t happy about Emma giving him false hope and the two retire for the night as well.
The Resort (Season 1), Episode 7 “La Pubertad del Matrimonio” ending, explained:
The end of the episode finds Noah waking up next to Emma. When he tries to strike up an apologetic conversation with her, he notices that Emma’s face has grown tenfold due to the toothache. When he tells her this, she panics and rushes out of the tent. When everyone gathers, Emma tells them to do something since there is no reception there. So Luna runs off to try to find one. Meanwhile, the other three notice that the infection can be contagious and if not taken care of immediately, it could infect his brain.
So Emma decides she can’t wait for Luna to get help and hands the pliers Murray has to Noah, asking him to pull his tooth. Noah reluctantly does so and is able to successfully pull it off; though he passes out soon after. The ending of episode 7 of The Resort brings us to Murray discovering more pink mushrooms which lead him to the underground room. He finally found it, so he whistles to the rest of the group.
