‘The Fall of the House of Usher’ ending explained

Netflix viewers have been treated to one of the most popular horror series in recent times in the form of The Fall of the House of Usher, which is based on the works of writer Edgar Allan Poe and his infamous Usher family creation.

The ending of the series has left some viewers slightly confounded, so we’re going to clear up any remaining issues. The final episode sees Roderick and Madeline Usher kill their ex-business partner, Rufus Griswold.

The duo then meet what appears to be a supernatural entity called Verna, who can control lifeforms as well as see into the future. Verna knows Roderick and Madeline killed Rufus, so she offers them a deal in which they will become extremely wealthy and face no consequences.

However, the Usher bloodline must die with them. Roderick seems unfazed by the fact his bloodline will die apart from his granddaughter, Lenore. Before killing Lenore, Verna tells her of the good her death will bring.

Madeline tries to kill her brother before Roderick tries to kill Madeline and mummify her. But Madeline rises from the dead and comes to take Roderick into the afterlife with her.

After the pair both die, Roderick’s wife inherits their company, and their attorney is imprisoned.
