What happened at the end of Save Me?

The final of the six-part drama Nelly (played by Lennie James) continued to search for his young daughter Jody (Indeyarna Donaldson-Holness).

Nelly learnt in a sick twist the identity of the people behind Jody’s disappearance.

After confronting the individuals involved, Nelly continued to frantically search for the child.

His journey saw him encountering sex traffickers after he uncovered a warped auction house where abducted youngsters were being sold off. 

To Nelly’s horror, one of the girls was Jody and he attempted to rescue her with limited success. 

Later on, Nelly thought he’d found his daughter, however, it turned out to be a different girl who had a resemblance to the youngster.

Nelly saved the girl but there was still no closure for him as Jody was still out there somewhere, which has left things open for a season two.

The sad but unfortunately more realistic ending has left some viewers feeling a little hollow and calling out for more.

Fans took to Twitter to vent their frustration, with one saying: “Save me ending?! I hate when there’s no closure – what’s the point in putting in six hours if there’s no closure?”

One said: “Just binge watched the whole series of Sky Atlantic’s new drama Save Me. Really enjoyed it but was a bit disappointed wit the ending if I’m honest.”

While another questioned: “What happened to Jody? I need answers.”

Despite the frustration, there was also praise for the ending’s authenticity and strong performances from the cast.

One fan said: “Just finished watching a great series on Sky Atlantic called Save Me. Well well worth the watch. Superb acting by the cast and especially Lennie James. In a strange sort of way, I loved the realistic but heartbreaking ending.”
