With the brand new Black Mirror: Bandersnatch episode now streaming on Netflix, one question remains: How many endings are there exactly and how do I get to all of them?
The quick answer is that there are basically thirteen-ish endings to Bandersnatch and with a myriad of ways to get there.
Like any video gamer who wants to power through and experience them all, here’s the best way to experience the show in one sitting:
- Stay on rails: Choosing options is a fraud (this is quite meta), let Netflix choose the options for you.
- Do not end the show prematurely at any time even if the credits roll: This is not a traditional story.
- Turn on subtitles: You will need this for a specific sequence of the game.
- Runtime is a lie: You will need at least 3 hours to experience everything as the show loops a fair bit. You’ll know you’ve hit the end of Bandersnatch when Netflix rolls on the show to another Black Mirror episode.
Spoiler warning: Do not proceed past this section if you want to experience the show spoiler free.
