They/Them ending explained – who is the masked murderer?

This article covers the ending of the Peacock film They/Them, which will contain spoilers.

Ready Steady Cut Film critic MN Miller calls them “a surprisingly tame horror image.”

them begins with a masked killer killing Molly. They’re on their way to what we assume is a conversion camp up the road. We don’t know why they choose to look like Jason Voorhees with a creepy mask and hoodie, but everything will be revealed in time. Now let’s move on to the characters and why they are here.

You’ll notice that camp staff use traditional pronouns that refer to someone’s biology (a social construct). Residents use pronouns that respect their chosen gender identity. We have Owen (Kevin Bacon) and Cora Whistler (The good wife Carrie Preston) who run a conversion camp for young people from the LGBTQ+ community in the Bible Belt of the Deep South. They have a loyal and talented staff. Cora is the local therapist. Zane (Boone Platt from Devotion) is the athletic director. He’s also a former camp member and, as Owen says, he’s bolt upright now. His fiancee Sarah (Laura’s secrets Haley Griffith), also a former member, directs the ‘women’ portion of the curriculum.

This includes baking cakes and testing the girls’ lust for same-sex intercourse by giving extra credit to foreplay. They have a local repair person who is of course creepy and she loses her hair. He’s installed cameras in local women’s showers and is having fun in a shack (at a camp that’s said to have no wifi, by the way). Finally, they have a nurse, Molly (Anna Chlumsky), whose jaw keeps hitting the floor as she keeps discovering the history of the camp and modern day conversational techniques.

The new group of residents have arrived on a bus that I believe was used for filming The Shawshank Redemption. These are fresh fish for camp and their families have all sent down for various indiscretions deemed unacceptable. Jordan (The politicians Theo Germaine) who identifies as trans/non-binary. Alexandra pretends to lie to the camp about her biological identity and is currently taking hormone therapy to transition into a woman.

When Owen finds out, he forces Alexandra to sleep in the boys’ dorm. Toby’s (Austin Crute) parents want him to be straight. That goes for Kim (Anna Lore), who likes women, but her parents want her to give them grandchildren like her sister. Cooper is a top athlete whose father is afraid of his homosexual thoughts. And finally, Veronica, a member of the LGBTQ+ community who is on the ground undercover to write about the talk camp experience. Another prominent resident, Gabriel (Darwin del Fabro), has a secret.

Let’s get down to what happened with the warehouse rebuilds though. sex, lots of it. Apparently conversion camp sex is all the rage because it’s happening everywhere. After fending off Sarah’s advances by baking the perfect cake, Kim confides in Veronica while sitting on the dock by the lake. And let’s just say, don’t “come” when the dock rocks. There must be something in the water because Gabriel attacks Stu while he’s swimming in the lake. And after spending a few hours in a love shack, this is a little ole place to get together.

After that, Gabriel drops a bombshell – you’re a mole! It was her job to test Stu (just like Sarah flirts with Kim) and he failed. So Owen and Zane take him from rejection therapy to the locked room. They show pictures from old Abercrombie and Fitch ads of young men shirtless. And when they do, they do electroshock therapy. The idea is to get Stu to break “undesirable” habits; In this case, according to Owen, he is attracted to the male body. This is typically used for smoking and overeating, but not under Owen’s supervision.

Now let’s move on to the murders. We know the masked killer killed Molly. Then they take care of the camp warden by slicing him up. The subsequent murder involves Sarah and Zone. They’re on their phones, lying in bed, looking at social media photos of Stu and Kim. When they’re powered up enough, they lay on top of each other and start rubbing against each other while still looking at the photos. Sarah sees the killer come from behind and kill them both. I mean, are you talking about a “c**k” block.

The entire camp is on high alert. Molly has Alexandra walk the younger residents to safety. They take Molly’s cell phone and will call the police as soon as they find cell service. Owen and Cora are convinced it must be one of the residents, and when Cora goes to get two guns, she is killed by the masked killer. The rest of the residents and Molly are still at the camp. Molly tells the remaining residents to go to the infirmary to be with Stu and she’ll grab some guns. A minute goes by and now Jordan says they’re going to grab the same guns. Jordan arrives, hears someone coming, hides in the closet and finds Cora with her throat cut. Just then, Owen appears looking for Cora, grabs his pistol from the desk drawer and the villain appears and reveals himself.

Peacock movie them end explained

It’s Molly! Only her name isn’t Molly, that was the woman who was killed at the beginning of the film. Her name is Angie, a former student of Owen and a resident of the conversion camp. She was also a victim of his aversion therapy techniques. Her plan is to rid the world of such institutions, and when she is about to slash open Owen, he knocks the knife out of her hand and chokes her. Jordan comes out of the closet and grabs Owen’s gun. Angie demands that Jordan shoot him, but refuses. As they put it, Jordan is “man” enough NOT to kill Owen. So Angie pushes her former advisor into the wall with a rhino head attached – the horn goes right through his chest. And the icing on the cake? Angie slits his throat and blood splatters all over her face.

Angie expects Jordan to fill in for her, but the resident refuses. Jordan says no one, including supporters like Angie, can ever tell them what to do again. Jordan walks away and will not help Angie in her quest to rid the world of these camps. Angie is arrested and Jordan starts her life all over again.
