Now that you have binged through the entire second season of Sacred Games, we need to talk about that finale. Netlfix’s biggest Indian original show ended with an explosive (not literally, we hope) episode, leaving many at the edge of their seats. Of course, fans are raving about it on Twitter and also discussing among each other what it all meant. It’s time we joined the conversation too.
But first, be warned that major SPOILERS will be discussed beyond this point.
The final episode, titled Radcliffe based on the Radcliffe Line drawn between India and Pakistan during the Partition in 1947, finally brought the show’s two timelines together. While we finally catch up to the day Ganesh Gaitonde (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) killed himself, we also enter D-Day, the 25th day when the nuclear bomb planted by Guruji (Pankaj Tripathi) and Shahid Khan (Ranvir Shorey) is supposed to explode in Mumbai.
In the final moments of the season, Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan) is left alone with the nuclear bomb while others take off in helicopters with just minutes left to the explosion. He has to draw a pattern on a tablet to deactivate the bomb and he has only three out of five attempts left. The first two were quite stupidly exhausted by a scientist by drawing random patterns and hoping for the best.Of course, Twitter has not forgiven her for it. “In last episode of the sacred games, there is a scene where this lady has 5 attempts for drawing a pattern to deactivate the bomb. She randomly starts by drawing some irregular polygon and after each attempt she wud look to others and with a disappointed face and say ‘Incorrect’. First of all , u are getting way more attempts than even normal fone gives. Second, how can u expect that ur random guess will work? Seeing the entire scene was way so funny. And everyone was waiting for #SacredGamesS2,” wrote one fan.
