The Weekend Away Viewers Surprised By Twist Ending

The Weekend Away Viewers Surprised By Twist Ending

Nobody saw this coming!

Warning: Major spoilers for The Weekend Away ahead!

New Netflix murder mystery The Weekend Away has really shocked viewers after throwing them for a loop with an unexpected twist ending.

The Leighton Meester film, based on a novel of the same name by Sarah Alderson, dropped this week and fans were eager to sink their teeth into the thriller, only to have their jaws on the floor by the time the credits started to roll.

You can watch the trailer here:

In the film, Beth (Leighton Meester) is left to her own devices to solve the disappearance of her best friend Kate (Christina Wolfe), having woken up alone in their Croatian Airbnb after a booze-filled night out.

Wanting desperately to get back home to her husband Rob (Luke Norris) and their baby girl Aster in London, Beth can't bring herself to leave until she finds out what happened to Kate.

Eventually, Beth rallies Syrian taxi driver, Zakaria (Ziad Bakri), and a rather reluctant police inspector, Pavic (Amar Bukvic, to help her.

While viewers were pretty much suspicious of all men from the outset, they were shocked when they finally learned what really happened to Kate.


At first, it seems that Inspector Pavic is behind Kate's murder.

It all made sense. His colleague revealed that he was a corrupt officer, and CCTV footage revealed Pavic was with Kate on the night she died. Not only that, but he drove her home from the police station and even tried to hit on her.

Case closed! Or so we thought.

When Beth returns home to London she discovers that her own husband Rob was behind Kate's murder.

Earlier, Beth discovers that Rob and Kate had been having an affair behind her back. But it turns out that Rob followed Beth out to her girls' trip in Croatia to make sure Kate didn't let the cat out of the bag and, well, things got messy.


Fans were beside themselves over the shock ending, and took to Twitter to discuss the plot twist.

One wrote: "The Weekend Away on Netflix 😱 I thought it was him and then they convinced me it wasn't him and then it turned out to be him!"

A second viewer tweeted: "Highly recommend the weekend away on Netflix, such a good film so many twists."


"If you want a good film to watch then Weekend Away on Netflix is sick, so gripping with so many turns," commented a third.

While another added: "Just watched the weekend away on Netflix.. what a plot twist !!"

You can watch The Weekend Away now on Netflix.
