Black Mirror: Bandersnatch Ending 1 Explained

The one Bandersnatch ending that seems most typical is one where Stefan ends up in jail. This Bandersnatch ending explanation is easy to understand. He kills his dad and then ends up in a cell wasting away at the end.

Of course, if you choose to have Stefan kill his dad, you can either bury him or chop him up. The Bandersnatch game is not released and Stefan sits in his cell at the end scratching the White Bear symbol into the wall of the cell.

A second ending also involves Stefan murdering his dad. However, in this one, he was able to get away with it and released Bandersnatch as a huge success. Many years later, Stefan is found out and ends up in jail with all copies destroyed.

This one also has a nice Black Mirror twist where a girl in the present day named Pearl Ritman (daughter of Colin and Kitty) finds the game and starts to work on rebooting it for a new streaming platform.

This Bandersnatch ending explanation is that the cycle might be repeating itself as someone is still in control outside of the characters.

The third Bandersnatch ending really plays into the choose your own adventure storyline because Stefan realizes that he is being controlled (by you).

He ends up in the psychiatrist office and believes that the controller is from the future (cause it’s you) and goes nuts, forcing his dad and the doctor to drag him out of the office screaming.

The fourth Bandersnatch ending is interesting. It is similar to the one where Stefan goes nuts. However, in this case, the viewer will have him climb out the window and that is when he sees that he is in a movie set.

Strangely, he has no idea he is in a movie until the director tells him that he was not supposed to leave the room because the fight scene (from the third ending) was supposed to happen next.

Stefan is told to take a break.

The fifth Bandersnatch ending is a really trippy one. This one fits in so well with the idea of Black Mirror and is the most sci-fi one of them all.

If the viewer chooses the code “TOY” in his dad’s safe, he gets the stuffed rabbit that he lose when he was a child back. Then, he is able to go back in time and choose to go with his mom on the train trip where she died.

This, of course, means Stefan died as well and then he drops dead in his psychiatrist’s office since he was never meant to live that long.
