TV Series: The Haunting of Bly Manor


I do not know if there is an afterlife, but I can only imagine how it would be. The Netflix series “The haunting of Bly manor” made me think a lot. What would happen if you died with unfinished business, without your consent, or if you love someone so much that you can’t let go? Do you get trapped in the afterlife?

In my perspective, the ghost of Bly manor who had lung disease for years was killed by her sister. Maybe her sister killed her to end her suffering, but by the look of things, she didn’t really want to go. I feel like she wanted to see her daughter grow. She didn’t want to leave her.

When she died, she stayed present in the manor. Each night looking for her daughter killing people standing in her path, but as years passed, she started to forget memories of her living life and that’s why the ghost loses features in her face.

I don’t know if it’s because I am a mom now, but I actually find the story really sad.

Loving someone so much to stay trapped in the afterlife, without being able to see your kids. Every single day, looking for them and being angry for not finding them. This would be torture!

I actually understand why we would stay around if we died when your kids are at a young age. Even if they were older… You want to make sure they stay safe, that they are alright. We have so much love for our kids, just thinking of being away from them breaks your heart.

If there was an afterlife, one thing I would wish is that we don’t get trapped with anger, pain and sadness.

I am just brushing the surface here as I don’t want to tell you every single detail. You should watch it!
Below is the official trailer.

If you watched it, let me know your thoughts!

  1. I just finished watching this over the weekend and wow that ending was so heartbreaking! I loved watching it – the back and forth and the way they repeat things almost drove me to madness, I just wanted to know what was happening! But they did a great job of portraying grief, depression and anxiety. I enjoyed reading your thoughts! ☺️

      Yeah, at some point I thought I was crazy when I saw something I already saw. The suspense was there for sure and I agree, they did a great job portraying grief, depression and anxiety.

      • Glad to hear you’re getting more time for yourself, I’m sure the baby keeps you very busy!
        Right?! I kept going, I’ve seen this! Then I’d think is everyone dead and this is all just a mind-game 😂 This was definitely a great watch!
