Bad Times At The El Royale is a frantic film that breaks the mould in many ways. With the movie being so long, many may have left the theatre as the screen fades to black at the end and missed the final scene that follows the film. I thought I’d give my breakdown of the plot to let you know if you missed anything and there will be heavy spoilers.
With that out the way, I’m Deffinition and I ruin the movie so you don’t have to!
What Happens In The Post Credits Scene?
By the films close there have been many murders and the only two characters left standing are Pretend Priest Daniel Flynn and singer Darlene Sweet. The two joined forces when the mayhem began and decided to split the stolen cash that Daniel Flynn was after. Darlene was only staying at the Hotel before a performance in Reno so it makes sense that Flynn would trust her and want to partner up with her to make it through the events in the film.
Throughout the film, the two went through a lot together. The Cult Leader played by Chris Hemsworth really put them through the ringer but there was definitely a friendship formed and this is confirmed in the final scene of the film.
Darlene finally makes it to Reno to perform and we can see Daniel Flynn in the crowd watching over her. The two give a nod to each other similar to how Alfred does to Bruce at the end of The Dark Knight Rises except that one made me cry and this one just made me think ‘I can’t believe I sat through two hours and twenty minutes for this.’
In a recent interview with WhatCulture, Director Drew Goddard stated that:
‘My hope for the film is that people can relate to the different characters at different times in the movie. When we started to screen the film, we found that people have allegiance with one character and then that allegiance changes and changes again and again.’
Personally, I’m glad they both made it to the end and this scene is a celebration of their survival.
