After Life Season 3 Review
Interestingly enough I feel this season was the weakest of the three because we have finally gone through the five stages of grief and often acceptance is the one that people care least about.
After Life season three once again follows Tony as he accepts his wife’s death and comes to terms with life continuing. As I explained this whole show seems to be him going through the five stages of grief and finally in this last season he is able to accept what has happened and move on with his life and do better, and while it’s an absolutely lovely ending to the show and had me bawling my eyes out at the last episode, I definitely feel because there wasn’t so much conflict within it, it didn’t have the same highs and lows that the previous seasons had.
What I love about this show is that it showed that real life is real and not everything that we want to happen happens. Throughout the whole show we have seen Tony and Emma have this on and off relationship and in the end we see that they don’t get together, and while some people may be sad that this fairytale romance doesn’t work out, it shows that you can still be a good person and still be there for people without having to be romantically connected to them and sometimes you have to put yourself first with your feelings and stringing someone else along isn’t the way to go about it.
We also saw in the last episode the different types of love that there is in the world, from friendships to romances to even animal-human connections, there are so many places in the world where we can find love and care and happiness that you just have to look out for it and really everything isn’t as doom and gloom as it seems.
I have loved After Life since the beginning, it took me awhile to watch season two because I had to be in the right mindset for it, and once again that’s the same for season three, however this season felt a lot more calm and collected than the others did and you really had a sense that Tony was finally coming to terms with everything that has happened in his life. The ending is an ambiguous one where we don’t know what happens to Tony, but my feeling from it is that he goes on to live his life and be that guardian angel that other people need from him, and he is happy and content in himself finally which is so good to see.
I believe this is a show that everyone should watch to be able to put their lives into perspective and to realise that, yes we are all going to die one day, but that doesn’t mean we have to fret or live our life in a way that doesn’t fulfil us. Everyone has a choice to be the best version of themselves and make themselves happy and even when we go through the darkest of our days there is still light hidden within the darkness, and while it can be hard to see it, we should all know that it’s there and even though things can be bad there is still some good to be found.
What do you think of After Life season three?
Until next time.
