[Warning: Major spoilers ahead]
In the final episode of The Haunting of Bly Manor, audiences finally learn the identity of the "narrator" aka the old woman who is telling the ghost story to a bunch of wedding guests, as well as what became of the main characters in the spooky tale who survived the murderous Lady of the Lake and a house full of ghosts.
Well, the old woman (played by Carla Gugino) is actually Jamie (Amelia Eve), Bly Manor's resident gardener and Dani's (Victoria Pedretti) love interest. Keep reading to find out more about the on-screen couple in the Netflix anthology series.
'The Haunting of Bly Manor': Dani and Jamie are together... forever.
After Jamie finishes her ghost story, it is revealed that the American bride in present-day is actually a grown up Flora (Amelie Bea Smith) and Miles (Benjamin Evan Ainsworth) is also there. However, the children don't remember anything that happened at Bly Manor or that they were "tucked away" by ghosts.
The older Miles and Flora think that the tale is just a spooky story.
Aside from audiences finding out the identity of the narrator, Episode 9 also revealed that Dani is now the Lady of the Lake. After spending years with Jamie, she returns to Bly because Viola (the OG Lady of the Lake) is starting to control Dani and the former nanny is scared she will harm her wife. Dani sacrifices herself and dies by suicide and becomes the new Lady of the Lake.
Though, unlike Viola (the OG Lady of the Lake), the American au pair is seemingly able to leave Bly.
Netflix viewers watched as Jamie falls asleep in the tub and an image of (what fans think is) Dani's hand rests on her shoulder. So, though Dani has died, she is still very much a part of her wife's life.
"For the rest of her days, the gardener would gaze into reflections hoping to see [Dani’s] face. Her own Lady in the Lake,” present-day Jamie says in a voiceover. “She’d leave the door open at night, just a crack. Should [Dani] ever come back. Waiting for her lover to return.”
