Although it seemed impossible after the successes of National Anthem National hatred or Black Museum Black Mirror managed to surpass itself with the chapter of the third season Shut Up and Dance (‘Shut up and dance’) capable of the move even more than the previous ones. Something that would not have been possible without the last-minute twist in the plot created by screenwriters Charlie Brooker and William Bridges, as ‘ScreenRant’ has just revealed.
Shut Up and Dance told the story of Kenny, a 19-year-old boy with serious relationship problems as a result of his extreme shyness. After discovering that your computer is infected by malware, you try to erase it by installing a program, but what it does is give access to your webcam. His problems are compounded when he is recorded while masturbating when viewing images from the internet, which leads him to do everything possible to prevent hackers from spreading his video.
However, it will not be until the final moments of the episode when it is discovered that the young man is a pedophile who kept child pornography on his computer. It is precisely this final surprise, the key to the success of the chapter, that the scriptwriters added about the horn since at first, the idea was to show how hackers can control our lives. However, after attributing to Kenny the consumption of child pornography, he becomes the bad guy of the film, becoming a despicable being.
The end of the episode would still magnify how far the disgusting protagonist can go because, in addition to robbing a bank to try to prevent the publication of his video, he murders Paul Bazely, another pedophile who had denounced that both were victims of blackmail for sexual content existing on their computers. It would be of no use to him since everything ends with the disapproval of his mother, who rages and calls him ashamed of his practices.
