In the Dark Season 4 Ending Explained: Does Murphy Really Kill [Spoiler]?



In the Dark Season 4 Ending Explained: Does Murphy Really Kill Josh?

The CW’s little crime drama that could, otherwise known as In the Dark, came to an end with its polarizing series finale on Sept. 5. Finally, after many twists and turns, Murphy’s story reached its conclusion with the shocking In the Dark season 4 finale.

For four seasons, In the Dark followed the ups and downs of Murphy Mason (Perry Mattfeld), a blind woman who seeks to investigate the death of her close friend. As she gets deeper to the truth, her life (and those of her closest friends and co-workers) is turned upside down.

In the fourth and final season, In the Dark picks up with Murphy in jail after the events of the season 3 finale. As she struggles to acclimate to her new surroundings, Murphy once again finds herself in the middle of trouble that never goes the way you think it would.

Although Murphy ultimately goes to trial and cuts a deal to become a CI for the police who had previously been working to put her behind bars, she doesn’t necessarily receive her happy ending. So, what went down in that jaw-dropping, full-circle series finale?

Warning: MAJOR spoilers ahead from the In the Dark series finale!

Does Max die in In the Dark season 4?

Unfortunately, yes… Max (Casey Deidrick) dies in the penultimate episode of In the Dark, and it’s one of the worst decisions the series ever made. Max gets shot while escaping into the elevator after saving Murphy from the fundraiser scheme as it goes wrong. It’s absolutely heart-wrenching to watch Murphy realize what has happened and what was taken from her.

Even though he didn’t pull the trigger, Josh (Theodore Bhat) is directly responsible for Max dying because he made a call that turned the whole operation sideways. It’s awful to watch someone so obsessed with ruining Murphy’s life do exactly that. Murphy and Max had finally gotten to a solid place and were building a life together. In one second, all of it was gone.

The decision to kill Max will surely hit all viewers a different way, but if you watched the Hulu revival of Veronica Mars, you know this pain all too well. Once again, the lead woman seemingly has a happy ending and loses it in one fell swoop for… the sake of trauma? In the Dark could have ended on a similarly cathartic note for Murphy without Max dying.

Does Murphy kill Josh in In the Dark season 4?

Murphy speaks at Max’s funeral and vows to find out who did this to him (clearly, she believes there were more cooks in the kitchen than the man who pulled the trigger) and get justice. There’s no talking her out of following through with her promise to get square. She lost the love of her life, she’s pissed, and she’s going to kill whoever killed Max.

Once she discovers Josh put in the call that placed him in the middle of their plan and prompted Max’s death, she has a renewed sense of purpose. Killing Josh? That’s no big deal for Murphy. He had it coming. She breaks into his apartment in the middle of the night to kill him, but he ran. With Felix’s (Morgan Krantz) help, she tracks him down to a cabin in Missouri.

Although Josh nearly gets away again, Murphy and Felix tie him up in the cabin. Felix tries to play mediator and keep Murphy from becoming a murderer, but Murphy sees through Josh’s hollow attempts at an apology. Throwing in the towel, Felix leaves Murphy in the cabin with the knife and her choices. In spite of an initial struggle, Murphy stabs Josh to death three times.

She throws the knife into the cabin, grabs Pretzel, and changes clothes at a nearby convenience store. After washing up and ditching her bloodied clothes in a dumpster, she reunites with Felix, who asks why she’s wearing a tie-dye outfit all of a sudden. We all know that he can surmise what went down in that cabin after he left.

Does Murphy go to jail in In the Dark?

Technically, yes: Murphy does go to jail in In the Dark season 4. But she doesn’t go to jail for Josh’s murder. (Whether she’s caught for killing her enemy is left up to the eye of the beholder.) Also, as previously mentioned, Murphy doesn’t last long in jail in season 4 due to health and safety concerns and other convoluted factors.

Who does Murphy end up with in In the Dark?

Ultimately, Murphy ends up with Max. She and her long-time on-again, off-again boyfriend get engaged after the rockiest of romances. After his untimely death, she remains committed to Max. However, in the end, she ends up with her ride-or-die best friend Felix and the best dog you could ever imagine, Pretzel. The trio drives off into the sunrise into the great unknown, again on the run.

List Of Canceled Netflix Original Series In 2023

List of all the shows Netflix has canceled in 2023.



2023 has kicked off with a couple of big cancelations, which signals a potentially rough year coming up, which many other players throughout Hollywood will share. Here’s a look at the 2023 cancelations!


The big-budget series from the creators of DARK had big expectations and big shoes to fill.

The mystery sci-fi show was one of Netflix’s most ambitious shows in years, using state-of-the-art technology and featuring an impressive ensemble cast.

Why was 1899 canceled?

Data provided to What’s on Netflix from European SVOD analytics company Digital i suggests that the completion rate was ultimately too low and likely wasn’t growing substantially. Their data suggests only around a third of people who started the show went onto finish the title.

Inside Job

The animated series Inside Job had been initially given a season 2 renewal order back in June 2022. Still, in January 2023, the creator confirmed rumors that Netflix had reversed the decision to renew.

In a statement on Twitter, the show’s creator Shion Takeuchi said:

I’m heartbroken to confirm that Netflix has decided to cancel season 2 of Inside Job. Over the years, these characters have become real people to me, and I am devastated not to be able to watch them grow up. Reagan and Brett deserved to get their ending and finally find happiness. And I would have loved to been able to share what was in store with you all.

He added, “To everyone who watched, thank you for coming along on the ride. Even though I’m sad, it helps to know that there’s people out there who cared just as much about these characters as me.”

Netflix Movie Lou Cast: Who Stars in the Netflix Thriller?



Netflix Movie Lou Cast: Who Stars in the Netflix Thriller?

Allison Janney and Jurnee Smollett are the main attraction of the Netflix movie Lou as the two leading ladies. Janney plays a John Wick-esque character (complete with a beloved dog, but don’t worry, Jax makes it out alive!) while Smollett plays her neighbor, Hannah.

Lou is a hardened recluse living on the fringes of their secluded island, while Hannah is a single mother struggling to make ends meet to take care of her daughter, Vee.

A horrible storm hits the island, and someone kidnaps Hannah’s daughter in the midst of it, forcing her to turn to Lou for help. While searching for Vee, the two women are forced to confront some of the dark secrets from their past.

Even though Smollett and Janney are the stars, Lou has a great cast of actors that also includes Logan Marshall-Green and Greyston Holt (remember him as one of the hot werewolves from Bitten?).

Netflix movie Lou cast list

For those unfamiliar with Allison Janney, the powerhouse actress is a Hollywood staple. Throughout her many decades in the business, Janney has won countless accolades, including seven Primetime Emmy Awards, an Academy Award, and a Golden Globe Award. She has also secured two Tony nominations.

Janney first rose to prominence playing C.J. Cregg on The West Wing. More recently, she starred as Bonnie Plunkett for nine seasons in the CBS sitcom Mom. Janney won her Oscar for I, Tonya, and has also appeared in projects like Masters of Sex, The Help, Juno, and many others. Next, she’ll star in the comedy miniseries Mrs. American Pie, the comedy film The People We Hate at the Wedding, and the sci-fi drama True Love.

Jurnee Smollett has been acting since she was a kid, with recurring roles in shows like Full House and On Our Own. But most people probably know her as Jess Merriweather in Friday Night Lights. The last few years have really helped cement Smollet’s status as a superstar. She played Dinah Lance/Black Canary in Birds of Prey and is reportedly going to reprise her role in a spinoff standalone movie at HBO Max.

Smollett also delivered an incredible performance in the short-lived but acclaimed HBO series Lovecraft Country and she recently starred opposite Miles Teller and Chris Hemsworth in the Netflix thriller Spiderhead. Next, she’ll star in the courtroom drama film The Burial with Jamie Foxx and Tommy Lee Jones.

Completing the cast trifecta is Logan Marshall-Green, who plays the film’s primary antagonist, Philip. You might recall Marshall-Green playing Trey Atwood in The O.C. He also recently completed a stint on the ABC series Big Sky.

Here’s the complete cast list for the Netflix movie:

  • Allison Janney as Lou
  • Jurnee Smollett as Hannah
  • Logan Marshall-Green as Philip
  • Ridley Asha Bateman as Vee
  • Matt Craven as Sheriff Rankin
  • Greyston Holt as Chris
  • Daniel Bernhardt as Tony
  • RJ Fetherstonhaugh as Gerry
  • Andres Collantes as Deputy Torres
  • Marci T. House as Agent Lee
  • Toby Levins as Agent Hampton

Netflix movie Lou starts streaming on Friday, September 23.
