In the finale of Amazon Prime’s The Widow, Georgia takes steps to address the mining operation itself and does her best to secure a new life for Adidja.

Previously on The Widow, Georgia Wells (Kate Beckinsale) tracked down her husband, Will (Matthew Le Nevez). However, it became clear that things would never be the same between them. After starting a new life (away from both aid work and the coltan mine), Will essentially betrayed Georgia. However, this finale focuses less on him (or even Georgia) and more on the coltan mining operation itself.

We first see the processing, from the mine to the lab and into the devices ordinary consumers buy at the store. Georgia is also concerned about Adidja (Shalom Nyandiko), who is still missing. As an unexpected twist, Judith Gray (Alex Kingston) calls Georgia to say that Adidja is with her. Of course, we had previously thought Judith had been killed by Sidney (Yoli Fuller).

In exchange for Adidja’s location, Judith wants to know where Will lives. The two meet, and Georgia is not very happy with Judith’s schemes. In fact, Judith bought Will a plane ticket for a flight she knew would get bombed by General Azikiwe (Babs Olusanmokun). She tells Judith that she’s as bad as they are. Soon after the address exchange, Georgia narrowly escapes 2 armed men, eluding them in a crowded market and getting into a van driven by Martin Benson (Charles Dance).  It’s apparent that Azikiwe doesn’t trust Georgia or Judith very much. However, Judith is spared when she gives him the address Georgia gave for Will.

Revenge against Azikiwe

As The Widow wraps up, it’s basically on some positive notes. Adidje is at some sort of orphanage and gives Georgia a parting gift. Georgia also debates the merits of her whole trip with Benson, telling him “It has to mean something.” With that in mind, she meets with Ivette (Robinah Kironde), the wife of slain Emmanuel (Jacky Ido). Ivette learns that her husband was killed by Pieter Bello (Bart Fouche). At first, she doesn’t seem interested in this knowledge, saying “The snakes in our government bite, then slither back into the grass.” However, Georgia is quick to put a plan in action.

For starters, Azikiwe’s hitmen (Omar Bouna Thiam and Yannick Punga) are given the wrong address to find Will Mason. Meanwhile, the real Will receives a phone so he can witness the protesters gathering outside of Azikiwe’s. While Judith scoffs at Georgia’s efforts, Georgia successfully convinces Will to testify to some committee about the crimes he was bullied into participating in.

While it’s not known if the operation’s shut down, the character of Georgia Wells could at least say she tried to address the twisted mining operation. Soon we see that the chronically depressed Azikiwe shoots himself. Also, Judith gets arrested. In the last moments of “The Widow,” Adidje is living with Georgia now, having a new home with someone who cares about her.
