Only given 12 hours until their relationship will expire, Amy and Frank enjoy a date that is, by all accounts, a nice night together.Instead of having a one-night stand, they fall asleep side-by-side, touching hands.Campbell says of the portrayal, "She is no longer allowing this system to keep controlling her.You shouldn’t be relying on a system to tell you how you feel — we have human instincts; you know how you feel and that’s what you should follow." Where her heart leads her, however, is into obscurity, as once Amy figures it out, she and Frank and their world disappear.Getting a match is the modern meet-cute and I thought [Brooker and executive producer Annabel Jones] did that really well." The expiration date on their relationship, viewers come to learn, is because the algorithm pairs people with as many matches as it takes in order to find the perfect one.The system logs likes and dislikes, habits and connections by putting the single through relationships that can last anywhere from weeks to years.
Until the Emmy-winning "San Junipero" episode of season three, the cardinal rule of Charlie Brooker's Netflix series had been to expect a bleak moral of the story, one that is always accompanied by a shock twist.Now, several season-four stories have the potential to do the same.When plotting the stories in the new season, which is now streaming in full on Netflix, Brooker had said the success of "San Junipero" might influence his creative thinking, hinting at more happy endings potentially to come in the new batch of six episodes."I was so happy when I read Amy because she’s such an interesting character; she’s fun and goofy they wrote her really well.When you get that, you want to just run with it." Amy is one of six female protagonists to emerge from the new female-led season, a casting choice that Jones said wasn't even intentional.
