BEHIND Her Eyes viewers have been left 'heartbroken and blindsided' by the 'f***ed up, twisted' ending after bingeing the entire series.
Fans of the new Netflix psychological thriller could not contain their reactions as they watched the final episode starring Bono's daughter Eve Hewson.
One gobsmacked viewer wrote on Twitter: "Mind blown with #BehindHerEyes That was weird and terrifying.
"I don't know what to feel with the ending…"
Another added: "#BehindHerEyes an ending that will leave you wondering WTF?"
"Omg! The ending is just maddd #BehindHerEyes," commented a third.
One added: "I still can’t get over this magical plot twist ending in #BehindHerEyes that was not expected at all!!"
The story, originally a novel by Sarah Pinborough, follows Louise (Simona Brown), a single mother who works in a psychiatrist's office.
She starts having an affair with her new boss, David but without him knowing she strikes up a friendship with his wife Adele (Hewson).
Themes of adultery are covered, as well as spousal abuse, addiction, lies, and trauma.
For fans of the book, the ending, which is different from the novel, came as a total surprise.
The supernatural element of the story comes as Adele is able to astral project her soul out of her body – and has therefore been keeping an eye on her husband's antics without anybody knowing.
But viewers soon learn that Adele is in fact Rob – a friend from her stint in rehab and who she taught how to astral project.
Rob (Robert Aramayo) then used Adele's gift to swap bodies with her after he himself fell in love with David – before killing Adele while she was in Rob's body.
If that isn't enough, Louise has also learnt how to astral project and uses it to try to save 'Adele' – aka Rob – when she/he tries to commit suicide in a burning building.
As this point Rob swaps bodies again and leaves Louise to die in Adele's body in the fire.
The shocking ending sees David getting ready to play happy families with 'Louise' and her son Adam (Tyler Howitt) – who is the only one who realises something has changed about his mother.
A Netflix fan wrote: "That ending though. I'm literally scared for Adam.
"He's like (sic) is going to be hell with a mother like that. My heart is broken thinking about it."
"That was a f***ed up twist of an ending, feel so sorry for her son," added another.
A third raved: "My goodness! That ending…
"I HIGHLY recommend everyone to watch this!"
Behind Her Eyes is currently streaming on Netflix.
