Mr and Mrs Smith Prime Video ended its first season with an electrifying finale that left viewers on the edge of their seats. After several secret missions and tense discussions, spy couple John and Jane face a dramatic and confusing outcome, full of unanswered questions.
The series, inspired by the 2005 film of the same name, follows spies John (Donald Glover) and Jane (Maya Erskine), who are paired up and given new identities as a married couple, serving as a front for their espionage missions. However, after failing three consecutive operations, their fate remains uncertain.

What happened in the season finale of Mr. and Mrs. Smith?
In the last episode, the situation becomes even more complicated when both are ordered to eliminate each other, triggering a series of chaotic events. Jane, shocked by the message, goes out to get a bagel, but upon returning, she finds shots fired into the apartment, presumably by John, who must also have received the same deadly order.
The confrontation between the couple intensifies, culminating in a chase through the streets of New York and an epic shootout at his home. During the confrontation, startling revelations come to light, including the fact that the spy failed her CIA psychological exam due to sociopathic tendencies, and John was discharged from the Marines due to his asthma.
The climax of the series occurs when they are confronted by a pair of “finishers”, tasked with eliminating the Smiths who failed in their missions. In a moment of extreme tension, the couple takes refuge in a safe room, while John, seriously injured, bleeds profusely.
Jane, with only one bullet left, faces a desperate decision to save them both. The final scene is ambiguous, with shots fired throughout the house, leaving their fate open.

The end of the first season of Mr and Mrs Smith. not only delivers a thrilling mix of action and drama, but it also leaves several questions open, promising more intrigue and twists for a possible second season.
