1899 Season 1 Ending Explained: 1899 season 1 just concluded on Netflix. 

Directed by the makers of Dark Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar in ‘1899 Season 1 Ending’, we finally understood who created the simulation, who Daniel and Elliot were, and most importantly, what Maura’s backstory was. 

Plus, how did Maura break the simulation? What was revealed at the end? Who is Ciaran? Well, if you need to catch up on the mentioned details, don’t worry. We have got you covered. 

Who were Daniel and Elliot? 

As we move forward in 1899, we get to see the true identity of Daniel and Elliot; it is revealed that Daniel was the husband of Maura, and they have been married for the last 12 years, but Maura doesn’t remember anything about the marriage. 

It was also revealed that Elliot was Daniel and Maura’s own son.

Who was the creator of the simulation in 1899? 

It was also revealed at the end the creator was no one but Maura herself.

As stated above, halfway through the series, it was revealed that Elliot was Maura’s son and Daniel was her husband. 

Although from the beginning, it seemed it was Maura’s father, Henry, who had created this simulation for his scientific experiments and kept an eye on everyone.

But in 1899 Episode 8, it was revealed that the creator was Maura herself.

Maura and Daniel were scientists, and they were experimenting on the human brain.

They had a son named Elliot and were a happy family. 

But when Maura learns that Elliot is dying, hence as a grief-stricken mother, she develops the simulation so that she, Daniel and Elliot can exist here and spend time with her son. 

But with the continuous simulations, her memory was ultimately lost, and she became unaware of who Elliot or Daniel was. 

Maura’s father, Henry, revealed all of these in Episode 8.

Who was Henry Singleton in 1899? Is he the creator? 

Henry was Maura’s father, and he was also a scientist who loved to study the human brain. 

At first, it seemed Henry had bought the ships so that he could conduct experiments on the people onboard. 

But in episode 8, it was revealed that Henry was not the simulation’s creator.

Maura created all this to be with her son, Elliot, who was dying, but as she has been in the simulation for a long time, she ultimately lost her memory and also forgot about her identity. 

Just like any other passenger on Kerberos, Henry was also stuck in the simulation and wanted to get out with the help of the key.

1899 Season 1 Ending Explained: How did Maura end the simulation? And Who is Ciaran? 

In the last episode of 1899, Henry revealed that it was Maura who had created this mess, and all of them were stuck in this endless loop because of her. 

So to make everything correct and break the simulation for himself, Henry injected the same serum Maura had been injected with multiple times before to restart the simulation again. 

But this time, Daniel, Maura’s husband, had reprogrammed the entire simulation objects with the help of his device. 

Therefore Maura didn’t wake up on the ship. Instead, she woke up on the black deserted island where Daniel had kept Elliot earlier. 

Daniel reveals that this was the first simulation they ever created. It is a home away from home. 

“Objects in the simulation are just manifestations of code. They facades like everything else. I changed their values. I reprogrammed them. This time the syringe didn’t bring you back into the simulation again; instead, it bought you here.”

Daniel reveals that he had switched the object the Pyramid Henry has is useless, and so is his key. 

Daniel had changed Black Pyramid with the toy pyramid, and now Maura’s wedding holds the exit code instead of the ring. 

Daniel tells her that Maura needs to get back from here as his brother Ciaran had taken over the whole program while she was in here. 

Ciaran was the one who controlled everything in the simulation. Daniel also revealed he tried multiple times to get her out of there but failed. 

“I don’t know how fast your brother will figure out what I have done, but you will have to leave now. This is so much bigger than you think. You have to wake up. You have to stop him, or everything will be lost.”

As Maura gives her wedding ring to exit the simulation, she wakes up in the simulation machine and notices all the other people, such as Eyk Ling Yi, stuck in the simulator machine. 

Maura also notices that she is in space.

Then a message pops up in the computer panel: 

May your coffee kicks in before reality does.
