Modern Love Strangers On A Train: Will Michael and Paula Reunite?

Today we cover Modern Love Stranger on a Train ending: The third episode of the second season of the renowned romantic comedy anthology series ‘Modern Love,’ written and directed by John Carney, depicts a contemporary and funny story of butterflies and sorrow. ‘Strangers on a (Dublin) Train’ starts with two strangers aboard the eponymous train. He is a techie, a medieval studies student, yet it seems like love at first sight.

The pair do not exchange phone numbers and decides to meet at the Dublin train station two weeks later. However, life had other plans for them. Kit Harington (he played Jon Snow in Game of Thrones) plays against Lucy Boynton (you might remember her from Sing Street). The conclusion is left open-ended, so if you’re searching for answers, let us interpret it for you. WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD.

Recap of Modern Love Strangers on a Train Season 2 Episode 3

Paula, a medieval studies student, travels from Galway to Dublin to see her mother. Looking around at her fellow passengers, she ignores the chatty man, the hippy musician, and the apparent serial murderer. But then her gaze is drawn to a decent-looking man in a jacket. Michael decides to sit beside the Angelina Jolie type, and Paula judges him silently. But when Jolie arrives at the next station, Paula is back in the game. Meanwhile, Michael initiates a small conversation with Paula, which soon escalates into amusing exchanges.

Meanwhile, Michael initiates a small conversation with Paula, which soon escalates into amusing exchanges.

Michael, it turns out, has an aversion to sitting in the opposite way of the train, which is why he picked the other berth. Michael works in technology but also develops business algorithms for ad firms. A new danger has frightened the globe, and tea and coffee aren’t allowed on the train. The train trudges on as the whole train sings a sweet and uncomfortable song to the newlyweds. Michael and Paula arrange to meet at the station two weeks later, hoping that everything would be back to normal by then. However, the choice comes back to bite them in the end.

Michael, on the other hand, is not one to accept the loss without a struggle. Michael starts to consider methods to meet Paula, and the idea prompts him to recall an address he overheard on the train ride. Paula tells a delivery guy her address in an early scene. Michael recalls the name of the road Paula informed the delivery guy earlier – “Oxmantown Road.” Michael does an online search to confirm that the road exists.

He walks out on the street and observes his neighbors while binge-watching ‘Lord of the Rings.’ A lady comes up to Michael’s vehicle, and he misidentifies her as Paula. In the last image, we see the length of the road, which gives the viewer a good sense of how difficult the job is. The tale finishes without a conclusion, which is an excellent masterstroke.

A comedy of errors

At this moment, the audience must be wondering whether the dedicated but doomed lovers would ever meet again. The plot is based on Cecilia Pesao’s description in the New York Times about meeting the love of her life on a train ride from Paris to Barcelona. They planned to meet again in the Gare de Lyon station, but the epidemic outbreak kept them separated in two nations. We don’t know what occurred in real life, but based on what we’ve seen, Michael should be able to locate Paula if he works hard enough.

More significantly, since Paula is fabricating the tale (her counterpart Cecilia sent the letter in real life), she could only have known about Michael seeking her address if they met again. As a result, although the conclusion may be unclear, there are enough clues in the tale to indicate that Paula and Michael do meet again and perhaps end up together.

Throughout the trip, Michael and Paula leave an indelible mark on one other’s life. The heartbreak is too great for both of them, and the new limitations add to their worry. Michael writes messages to Paula that he cannot transmit, while Paula records good-night messages for Michael. Paula thinks it unlikely that Michael will meet her at the time, as mentioned earlier and day, but Michael is a hopeless romantic who refuses to abandon his train romance. In the end, Michael ignores his brother’s advice and goes to the station. The station is closed, and Michael is stopped by woman cops at a roadblock. Michael’s explanation is ridiculous to the police officer, and she refuses to let him proceed to the station.
