Following on from the mammoth viral success of the first 365 Days movie, 365 Days: This Day made an immediate splash when it landed on Netflix last week.


Adapted from the second novel by Blanka Lipińska, there's just as much sex, mafia dealing and drama this time around as there was the first.

The sequel picks up following the first controversial movie’s cliffhanger ending, when a rival mafia family put a hit out on Laura.

In the second movie, Laura is back with a vengeance, getting married to Massimo and heading on her honeymoon.

But their wedding bliss doesn’t last for long. Once again, 365 Days: This Day concludes with a shocking ending that leaves Laura’s fate up in the air.

Of course, talk has already turned to 365 Days 3, which has been confirmed by Netflix.

Though we don't yet know the release date of the third and final film in the erotic trilogy, we know it was filmed back-to-back with the second, so there shouldn't be too long to wait for fans desperate to find out how the whole saga wraps up.

But if you've seen the second film and need a recap and explanation of those closing scenes, read on to have the 365 Days: This Day ending explained. Of course, that means there are spoilers ahead.

The sequel opens with Laura and Massimo's wedding.

It's never made clear exactly how Laura escaped her fate at the end of the previous film, but we do know that her unborn baby did not survive the incident and that she never told Massimo she had been pregnant.

Anyway, after a brief honeymoon period, Laura and Massimo's marriage unsurprisingly begins to go rather awry, with Massimo resuming his Mafia activities and Laura annoyed that his constant protection of her makes it feel like she's imprisoned.

Who is Nacho in 365 Days: This Day?

Laura meets dashing gardener Nacho Netflix

At around this time, she meets Nacho – a mysterious gardener with whom she strikes up something of a rapport, complaining to him that she is "just a wife" now and making her dissatisfaction with the situation clear.

At Christmas, some of the cracks are papered over when Massimo gifts Laura ownership of her own luxury fashion brand, but things then take another turn for the worse when he reveals that he has a secret brother whom he hopes never to see again.

Laura is very unhappy about the secrets he's been keeping and complains about this to Olga, while she also tells her parents of her concerns about the relationship during a dance they had been invited to.

It's at this same dance that things begin to go really pear-shaped: Laura looks up and sees Massimo flirting with Anna, his ex-girlfriend who appeared in the previous film – and when she follows them she finds them having sex.

Furious, she escapes with Nacho to a beach hideout – and the two quickly find themselves falling for each other, eventually having passionate sex.

Massimo and Domenico hatch a plan to find Laura and bring her back to him, and at one point Nacho is forced to fight off an assailant who tries to break into his home.

As things come to a head various revelations are made: first of all, Nacho reveals that he has been hiding his true identity – he is the son of a prominent mafioso, and key rival of Massimo's who has been using Laura for nefarious purposes.

He takes her to his father and leaves her with a pair of guards before we see his father negotiating with Massimo – giving him an ultimatum that he must stop expanding his activities, otherwise he will replace him with his twin brother.

Who is Adriano in 365 Days: This Day?

Massimo is revealed to have an evil twin named Adriano Netflix

Meanwhile, it has also become clear that there is a third player in this war – Massimo's brother himself, who it turns out is a twin and goes by the name Adriano.

In an abandoned warehouse, Adriano and Anna threaten Laura and she realises that they had been acting together for some time – it wasn't Massimo she had seen having sex with Anna at her party but Adriano, who is desperate to take revenge on his twin.

Anyway, realising the danger Laura is in, Massimo and Nacho arrive on the scene, now working together given they both have an interest in protecting her – and it quickly develops into a standoff.

Laura manages to wriggle free from Adriano – shortly after her earlier miscarriage is revealed to Massimo – but is shot by Anna as she runs towards her husband.

Nacho and Massimo then shoot Anna and Adriano respectively, before Nacho turns his gun on Massimo, although he eventually decides against shooting him and walks away.

Is Laura dead at the end of 365 Days: This Day?

The final scenes we see are of a distraught Massimo holding the severely wounded Laura in his arms – with it left unclear whether she has survived the ordeal.

It seems probable, however, that Laura will indeed make it out alive – she already mysteriously survived a similar near-death experience at the end of the first film, and there's still one more book in the trilogy for Netflix to adapt.

We'll have to wait and see what comes next for the franchise.
