For those confused about the ending of Love, Death and Robots Volume 3 Episode 9, allow us to help! We’ll also cover the remaining episodes of Volume 3 of Love, Death, and Robots, but here’s the ending explained to Jibaro.
Fantasy and greed combine in this reimagining of the traditional folk tale of a mermaid whose song lures men to their doom. But his sorcery doesn’t work on the deaf knight, Jibaro, and the Golden Woman becomes fascinated with him.
The ending explained
The death of Jibaro’s comrades left him free to take whatever loot he saw fit. Thanks to his deafness, this prevented him from falling into the siren song, but because of this, the couple became infatuated with each other.
It is unknown if the mermaid had fallen in love with Jibaro, and that is why she kissed him despite him hurting him. Unfortunately, for her, Jibaro’s infatuation with her was due to her beautiful ornate scales. Stunning the mermaid, Jibaro raped her body and removed the ornate jewels and scales that adorned her body, and brought her back to the river.
Unfortunately for Jibaro, he couldn’t find his way through the jungle and once again found himself at the edge of a river where he rekindled his thirst. However, the mermaid’s blood had spilled into the river, and by drinking it, he had cured Jibaro of his deafness. The sudden ability to hear sent Jibaro into a frightened frenzy, and in his confusion he found his way back to the lake where the mermaid, now without her beautiful golden boy, was waiting for him. No longer safe from her power, the mermaid exacted her revenge on Jibaro, forcing him deeper and deeper into the lake until he became one of many men to fall prey to.
Why did the mermaid “fall” for Jibaro?
We don’t know if the mermaid fell in love with Jibaro, but as the first man to not fall victim to her powers, it would have been an experience she had never had before. Despite his advances, which hurt Jibaro’s mouth, he was more attracted to the gold that adorned his body.
Why was Jibaro panning for gold?
Jibaro clearly resembled one of Spain’s conquistadors, who ravaged the Americas with his gold and various other treasures. Without needing to share the loot with his now-deceased comrades, Jibaro would become rich beyond his wildest dreams from all the gold scales and jewels he stole from the mermaid’s body.
