Spoilers for Behind Her Eyes. Finales are often ripe for contention on the internet. From Game of Thrones to Gossip Girl, Twitter almost always has an opinion on how TV shows end. But no show in recent memory has proven as polarizing as the end of Behind Her Eyes. The Netflix miniseries—starring Simona Brown, Eve Hewson, and Tom Bateman, about an affair gone terribly, terribly wrong (and supernatural)—has torn the internet apart thanks to its wacky, unbelievable, and completely unexpected ending.

Some viewers appreciated the twists in the last few episodes, applauding the risks in storytelling that led the show to be so damn unpredictable. Others, though, found the entire concept totally unplausible and wished the show stayed true to its psychological thriller premise rather than introducing fantasy elements in its final moments.

Regardless of which side you fall on, we can all agree that the show is definitely a conversation starter. See the best reactions to the end of Behind Her Eyes below.
