Details of “I Know What You Did Last Summer” Ending

In Season 8, we came to see the last whereabouts of each major character. As Dylan and Alison went to the cult church to find out about the murderer, they finally came across Margot. Now let us look into the ending. Margot had stabbed Alison in her stomach when she refused to confess. Dylan had immediately called 911 and had managed to keep her at gunpoint. Just at that moment, as the police came in, Margot played the victim card. What might have surprised you was when Alison refused to tell the truth to the police and let Dylan be arrested.

It could be if Alison had turned Margot to the police, her fake identity might have been exposed. Though Dylan was made out to be the culprit from the very beginning, he was not the murderer. For the sake of her own protection, Alison had to throw Dylan under the bus.

Another part of the episode that blew the audience’s mind was when in the last clipping, we find that Riley has been stored in a walk-in closet. Earlier, she was seen to be murdered by Margot.
