The main character of the Netflix Spanish series “The Snow Girl” is Amaya Martn, who is abducted while participating in the Twelfth Night Parade with her parents Ana and lvaro. As a result of her personal interest in the case, Miren Rojo, an intern at the Diario Sur newspaper in Málaga, sets out to track down the kidnappers. She occasionally works with police officer Belén Millán to help the heartbroken parents find Amaya. The series, which was originally named “La Chica de Nieve,” concludes with surprising information about Amaya’s past and present. You’ve come to the right place if you want to learn more about the thriller series’ conclusion. Spoilers follow.
The Snow Girl Recap
Amaya vanishes in the first scene of “The Snow Girl” when revellers are watching the Twelfth Night Parade. While Ana and Lvaro look for their daughter, they are unsuccessful in their search. As an intern at Diario Sur, Miren Rojo is obliged to handle less important issues, but she persuades her professor and senior journalist Eduardo to involve her in the coverage of Amaya’s missing person case. Belén Millán, who is in charge of the police investigation into the young girl’s disappearance, is surprised that there hasn’t been a ransom demand. Only Amaya’s yellow jacket, which is discovered in an adjacent apartment building, provides Millán with an immediate lead.
Six years after Amaya was abducted, in 2016, Miren receives a VCR tape with a note telling her to give it to the girl’s parents. As they watch the tape, Miren, Ana, lvaro, and Millán are reassured that Amaya is still alive. Millán’s investigation into Amaya’s disappearance quickly points to David Luque, a friend and neighbour of Ana and lvaro. Despite David having an alibi for the evening of Amaya’s disappearance, Millán and her crew examine a residence owned by the Luque family. After discovering multiple CDs containing child pornography, the policeman learns that David and his son Samuel are rapists. Samuel commits suicide after learning that the police have discovered the truth about him.
Both Miren and Millán look for the person who captured the VCR tape in 2016. A tech analyst uses the same features to identify the specific model, which directs them to James Foster, who has a history of abusing children. Despite being taken into prison by Millán, he escapes quickly since he also has a plausible explanation. When Miren approaches him, he informs her that he is aware of her rape because it was documented and posted on the child pornography website Slide. Foster demands $10,000 from Miren in exchange for the user and administrator list of the website, which will be necessary for her to identify the perpetrator of the rape.
Miren receives the second VCR tape in 2019, nine years after Amaya vanished, on it is written the word “Goodbye.” Lvaro and Ana are concerned that the kidnappers may stop contacting them in an effort to sever their relationship with their daughter. Miren learns more about the specific VCR model that was used to capture the two videotapes as the two of them are engulfed in never-ending grief.
The Snow Girl Ending: Who Kidnapped Amaya Martín? Why?
Miren compares the first and second VCR tapes and discovers that even though both were made using the identical equipment, the second one has far superior quality. The reporter visits numerous stores that still offer VCR repairs and learns that Iris Molina, a woman, just completed a similar model repair. Amaya is taken hostage by Iris and her husband Santiago during the Twelfth Night Parade. Iris is Ana’s patient at the moment. She believes her life has been cursed when Ana informs her that she cannot become pregnant. Her and Santiago’s hearts are broken by Ana’s admission as a couple who have been eagerly awaiting a child. Iris and Santiago come into Amaya, who is separated from her parents, during the parade.
While Ana and Lvaro look for Amaya, Ana decides to abduct the small girl because her desire to become a mother overrides her morality. Santiago always supports and follows his wife. Iris makes the decision to raise Amaya as her own daughter in order to satisfy her dream because she is unable to become pregnant and live a mother’s life on her own. Although Santiago initially displays misgivings about it, he soon comes to terms with being a father. In contrast, Amaya initially maintains that Ana is not her mother. Iris quickly convinces the young girl to change her viewpoint when she starts referring to her as Julia.
Amaya, created by Ana and Lvaro, gradually becomes Julia, created by Iris and Santiago, both cognitively and emotionally. Julia learns from them that the “evil guys” in the world are numerous, and she should only put her trust in her “mother and father.” Julia hides in her room whenever the couple receives visitors because she is afraid of the “evil guys,” who in her opinion are capable of doing great harm to her. Iris is quite successful in instilling dread and fear in Julia, which finally destroys her memory of her biological parents. Since Santiago and Iris are the only people Julia knows, she ultimately puts her trust in them. She becomes like Iris’ kid in every aspect, enabling the latter to realise her motherly ambitions.
In order to harm Ana and lvaro, Iris and Santiago do not kidnap Amaya. They are so moved by the struggles and sorrow of the latter marriage that they send a VCR tape to the parents. In an effort to lessen their suffering, Iris and Santiago want the parents of their “daughter” to know that she is secure.
Do Ana and Álvaro Get Amaya Back?
Despite Iris’s nine-year success in passing off Amaya as her daughter Julia, she makes a blunder that reveals her true identity to Miren. Knowing about the VCR repair, the journalist visits Amaya’s home in search of Amaya. Iris quickly realises what Miren’s true motives are for coming, which prompts her to leave her house. She plans to kill herself and Amaya by directing her van toward a slope after realising she can no longer conceal the child. Iris is killed in her attempt, but Amaya survives and is taken in by the authorities to a care facility. Assuring Ana and lvaro that the girl is in fact their daughter, Millán informs them that Amaya and Julia’s fingerprints matched.
The police confirm that Julia is Amaya, therefore Ana and Lázaro do have their daughter back. However, in Amaya’s eyes, she is Julia, Iris and Santiago’s daughter. Amaya does not only not recognise her biological parents when they come to pick her up from the care facility, she also does not respond when they address her by her first name, Amaya. She only replies to her parents when they address her as Julia, showing that they haven’t been able to restore her daughter’s mental and emotional health. Ana and lvaro might not even be able to “undo” their daughter’s learnings and beliefs given that Iris drove the kid to adopt the identity of Julia and develop a distrust of outsiders.
Ana and Lvaro might try to get their Amaya back with the aid of renowned mental health specialists, but the daughter might get too overwhelmed because she already went through a similar process to change into Julia. Additionally, Ana and Lvaro might accept their daughter for who she is—Julia—and work to start a new chapter in her life without pressuring her to live in the past. Ana and lvaro would not have even anticipated seeing their daughter again after nine years since she vanished. They might find delight in accepting Julia as well since that occurs.
Who Killed David Luque and James Foster? Why?
As Millán’s inquiry into Amaya’s disappearance moves further, she finds out that James Foster and David Luque, along with the former’s RV, were slain and burned. The police officer finds a picture of Miren in a safe inside the burned-out RV, making her the main suspect in the double homicide investigation. Foster and David appear to be slain by Miren, despite Millán’s inability to compile sufficient evidence to charge the journalist. It is evident from the journalist’s photos that she has been keeping a watch on both rapists, and it doesn’t seem random that they are both killed around the same time.
David and Foster must have been murdered by Miren because of their involvement with the child pornographic website Slide. Although the journalist initially seeks for her rapists, she must have understood that David and Foster pose the greater threats because they have ruined many lives by being crucial to the operation of the pornographic website. Instead of wasting her time and effort on a potentially pointless search, Miren murders the pair in order to make sure they won’t endanger the lives of any more girls. Miren may have also felt relieved after killing them because they can no longer make more child pornography.
Who is Laura Valdivia? Who Sent Her Photo to Miren?
Amaya’s life is turned around by Miren’s discovery of her, and she suddenly becomes famous. She also gains recognition as a writer, and the local press community begins to venerate her name. She receives a picture of a girl bound up in an anonymous package while she is at a reading of her book. The name “Laura Valdivia” next to the image identifies the youngster as Laura, who appears to be a kidnapping victim. The person behind the image is probably Laura’s abductor because it was provided to Miren as a challenge.
The attention and praise Miren received for finding Amaya’s body may have wounded Laura’s kidnapper’s ego. He might want to see the journalist fail because it will give him more power as a criminal. Miren might take up the task and try to identify the abductor because Laura’s condition appears to be deteriorating.
