Love, Death & Robots 'Jibaro' Ending Explained
Third season of the anthology series is now available on Netflix.
The third season of Love, Death, and Robots recently dropped on Netflix, and as expected, the final episode of the season left everyone speechless. Jibaro is unlike anything we’ve seen on television, and we would expect nothing less from the creator who gave us the ‘Witness’ episode in the show’s first season.
Episode 9, titled ‘Jibaro,’ comes from the mind of Alberto Mielgo, and the official synopsis states that it is a reimagination of Siren Folklore from Greek Mythology. It features the tale of dangerous creatures who uses their singing or enchanting voice to lure people to their demise. Well, that’s what Jibaro is all about.
The episode takes place in a medieval setting, where a group of Knights stops to rest by a lake. At this point, a witch, who seems to have supernatural powers, uses her voice to charm every soldier and the priests. Now, we see everyone trying to get closer to this girl, who, by the way, is covered with precious jewels. Everyone wants to be the only one to get near this creature, so every soldier starts killing each other. This leads to a bloodbath, and everyone drowns in the lake except one Knight, Jibaro.

Apparently, Jibaro is deaf, so he can’t hear this creature’s voice. Of course, the sorceress gets fascinated by the fact that her charm isn’t working on this one person. So, she follows this Knight into the forest and sleeps by her side. After a while, Jibaro stops running away from the woman and starts showing interest in her.
Love, Death, and Robots’ Jibaro is a “Deadly Dance of Two Predators”
Jibaro makes it feels like he is naturally attracted to Golden Woman, but that wasn’t the case. The Knight takes the opportunity and makes the girl unconscious by headbutting her. After that, he rips away every single jewel on the girl’s body and drops her in the lake.
Initially, the story makes you feel like that Jibaro is prey who is falling for a predator. However, Jibaro himself is a predator, so it’s no wonder that the episode’s synopsis states that the episode is a “deadly dance of two predators.”
The Knight now tries to find his way out of the forest, and the sorceress’ blood takes over the water in the lake. Since the water is now mixed with the blood of a supernatural being, it shows some healing properties, and it brings back Jibaro’s hearing when he consumes that water.
The witch now gains consciousness and feels naked and broken after seeing what Jibaro did to her. As her revenge, she uses her voice and dance to lure Jibaro, and as expected, he steps into the water and drowns. His body now lies with the countless other victims of the witch.
Jibaro’s story in Love, Death, and Robots Season 3 is mainly about greed, as the Knight’s greed led him to his demise. He could have left the forest when he got the chance, but he chose to take everything away from the witch. So, in the end, he met the same fate as every other Knight who was traveling with him.
