Us Ending: What Happens and What it Means

  • katma 22 Mar 2019
  • Jordan Peele’s new film Us is a wild ride full of twists and turns. We won’t blame anyone for being a tad confused by the end, so we’re here to help. Let’s break down the ending, discuss what it all means, and touch on the large quantity of symbolism hidden throughout.

      For all who find it only somewhat interesting I suggest seeing it again but watch it from the dopplegang perspective (Red). The entire movie changes lanes if you totally digest it from the others view. Started with a 7 but after seeing it two more times it easily ranked a 10. The best part is actually looking for and talking about the hidden clues after the movie, its a different concept for cinematography possibly the future of film. Jordans a beast on that film shit.

    100% same analysis as mine, it is a social class based movie.but for me Jason has to have been switched too , cos Pluto have a burnt face, and Jason cannot replicate the magic trick, so to me Pluto was the OG Jason who burnt his face cos of the magic trick failed somehow..... i just wonder when they switched...

    Idk how they were abandoned for generations, but red still is forced to be with Abraham. And how the rest of Americas population of clones get on board as well? And how the hell did they get that many jump suits and gear without leaving? Plus scissors suck as primary weapons.

    The kids are half teathers because of the mom and red talks like that because she was choked and the handcuffs that the real mom uses are the ones that were used when she was kidnapped and the names of the doubles are space related and biblical.

    The only thing that annoys me still to this day is that when red tells Adelaide to handcuff herself to the table, she only cuffs one hand. But when she breaks the table and gets free (+ for the rest of the movie) both her hands are cuffed?

    I think that Jason wasn't switched out I believe the reason he cant do the magic trick is because Pluto stopped doing the trick last summer when he got burned so that's the reason Jason can't do it...he never knew how to do it, it was Pluto who knewed how just the same as how red knew how to dance but adelaide didn't know how to do it cause it wasn't she doing the dancing

    Wait I wanna hear why y’all DONT think Jason was switched at some point BEFORE the movie started. Personally I think it’s possible. 1. His family made remarks about how he’s acting different and asking where he learned these new sounds. 2. His tethereds name is “Pluto” , out of all the planets Pluto isn’t a planet, out of all the tethered Pluto isn’t one of them. 3. The whole snapping off beat thing but idk I can look passed that. 4. The gone wrong magic trick? 5. When the family is face to face in the living room, he’s the only one not crying, like he knew this was coming at some point. 6. The comments about how he just became weird one summer but was just assumed to be caused by his grandmothers death?
    He just seems strange to me idk y’all my mind is spinning 💀

    This is just a theory i heard, but I think it could be real. The little boy, Jason' is actually the double. The boy with the burnt face is Jason. The tou that "Jason" plays with, is a match underground, where Jason is. Thats why his face is burnt. Because he burnt himself with the matches as "Jason" is always playing with that toy thing. Also, did anyone else have to Google the ending because they didn't really understand what happened? Because to be honest I wouldn't be suprised. Have a great day everyone!

    Lupita has freakishly good talent. "This laugh" haunts my nightmares. I "Get Out" (phenomenal film) was about racism, and "Us" was about clasism, I could see the former more (yes, perhaps because of the more linear realistic storyline) than the latter (yes, perhaps because it was a trip).
    The classism was lost on me because the clones were not "human" in a sense that they lacked empathy (with only fake-Adelaide showing some by having her family); and would mercilessly slay humans and then robotically form chains. I could not empathize with them as a lower class. I saw them as near mindless terrorists and wouldn't even classify them as animals. I wish there was more to develop them. I can understand if they were tired of being "controlled" as the "tethered" - even if they showed remorse when their fellows died, I'd have bought it

    Since Adeline wasn't a clone why did she have to mimic everything her clone did?

      TIFFANY PERSAUD 2 aylar önce

      I think it was because... and I may be reaching here, that when real-Adelaide was imprisoned, fake-Adelaide on the surface began to have more control. The clones were manufactured to "control" the surface population in the first place, but it ended up happening so in the reverse - but I can see it going both ways at times - that at times they swap control.

    The movie stumped me. I knew because it was a Jordan Peele film that it was going to be rich in imagery and symbolism, but up until the end when all - or almost all (if you think the kid was one too) - was revealed, I wasn't able to crack any of it. But thank goodness for those "Fill in the blank movie explained" videos that can help you understand it! I suppose if I give myself some credit, I wondered why the kid at the end looked at his mom funny, I do still wonder if the kid was tethered as well. But I guess we won't find that out for a while, don't think Jordan will reveal all like he did with GET OUT until he feels we have all gone to the theatres to see it so he doesn't ruin it for people.

  • Pademelon Gaming

    Here’s my question: When they switched places, did they swap memories? I ask because the MC’s doppelgänger who turned out to be the real person told the MC the story of why all this is happening, and she told it as though she had always been a tethered, and always will be. She vaguely talks about what it was like before she walked up the escalator, rather than telling the story of how she walked into the hall of mirrors like we saw her do at the beginning of the movie.
    TLDR; Why did the original version of the MC that we saw at the beginning of the movie seem to retain the memories of her tethered, and vise versa

      I know. I wonder if it was a plot hole. Red: "And the girl married a prince... and her shadow was given Abraham and it didn't matter whether she loved him or not... and she had a girl who was born a monster, smiling - and a boy who was born of fire." Red here is speaking of her experiences after becoming imprisoned.
      And then toward the end, Red is there doing a weird switch, "And when we met, I wondered why it was that you couldn't just take me with you." Like... lady, your clone called you to it at age eight, suffocated you, crushed your vocal chords, dragged you down to prison, chained you and ran free - why was she gonna take you with her at any point? It was instead as if Red was speaking from the perspective of a tethered when they met at age eight - when it was the other way around! It threw me for a loop.

  • EddyGordo21

    Red was a successful clone and a genious. Both red and adelaide were genius little girls, but red had more of the upper hand. Because red was a successful clone she knew that one day she would be able to get all of them from down there and change the status quo - remember they have the same memories as the ones above.
    So red was able to manipulate adelaide into going into the mirror room where red could overpower adelaide and trap her in the underground. However, red knows how smart adelaide is, and knew that adelaide would be able to lead a rebellion of the tethered. The tethered knew adelaide was different with the way she moved while she was down there dancing. During this time, however, red was above ground having therapy and forgetting who she really was.
    Adelaide is able to get everyone from down there and make red remember what really happened. But if adelaide had survived, the whole plan would have not been successful because the plan was to kill all the above ground people and leave only the tethered. Adelaide had to die for this to be fulfilled.
    So adelaide's fate was always death.

  • Angry Black Woman Getting Her PhD

    I don't get why the tethered took the original human's shirt she won the same one in the underworld. I could've sworn that when the grown original was having a flashback it showed her father winning the shirt and her just grabbing it. Or did things happen with a delay. I doubt it though. So I wonder if in the ending the mother was confused OR if I didn't remember the design on the tethered shirt.

      TIFFANY PERSAUD 2 aylar önce

      I think that's actually a plot hole. I was thinking about it myself too. They did look exactly alike when they first met at eight - as they were already wearing the same clothes. What probably happened was that perhaps fake-Adelaide after imprisoning her just took her Thriller shirt from her leaving her with the "Hands Across America" shirt - but that doesn't make sense to me either.

  • Angry Black Woman Getting Her PhD

    The escalator naturally went down. The little girl had to run up to reach her dreams. She was trying to elevate her lifestyle even though things worked against her. In my mind adelaide's tether was smarter than her. She reacted faster and she didn't let a challenge get in the way of her happiness.

    Adele( the mother) was slowly reverting back to her tethered origins. While Red reverted back to her human origins. Let that sink in . The rabbits were the tethered folks only source of food but they are also symbolic of depopulation and being devoured and controlled by the " underwold" . kinda like dual purposes. The tethered populated alongside the above ground people then invaded killed them off, starting a new society.
