We Didn’t Need to See Hollyhock’s Letter to Know What She Said in ‘BoJack Horseman’

On January 31, we needed to say goodbye to BoJack Horseman, an animated sequence that bravely and well delved into points like despair, dependancy, trauma, and the self-destructive nature inside so many people. One other theme is tackled was the thought of closure, and that cleverly (and frustratingly) performed out within the finale when BoJack reads Hollyhock’s letter. Though we by no means discover out what Hollyhock tells her brother, we mainly know. It is a becoming type of (lack of) closure for BoJack followers that made this present so good.

What did Hollyhock’s letter say?

We by no means discover out what Hollyhock’s letter says. We do not get glimpses of sentences, nor does BoJack narrate what he is studying. He merely reads it, sighs, and drops the letter. He later relapses from his sobriety, which signifies no matter Hollyhock stated in her letter, it hit him exhausting. It is clear that Hollyhock knew what BoJack had carried out (he’d ditched Hollyhock’s boyfriend Peter’s group of buddies at promenade on the ER when Peter’s girlfriend on the time, Maddie, had alcohol poisoning, and he was additionally concerned in Sarah Lynn’s dying), and that she desires nothing to do with BoJack.

Whereas the web demanded to know the precise contents of Hollyhock’s letter, many obtained the message the present despatched. “It was strongly implied all through the season that she knew what he had carried out, and he or she was extremely uncomfortable not solely with him usually however having him as a trainer. The cellphone disconnection comes after he retains attempting to contact her, and the letter itself was from her which means it wasn’t a notification of her dying or something. She simply desires nothing to do with him,” one Redditor wrote.

“I’d’ve preferred to know that too, however I believe we will take from context that the gist of it was she reduce him out of her life. That was obvious from his response. He did not open it till her quantity was disconnected, which she doubtless would’ve carried out as a result of he would not cease calling, telling her he hadn’t learn the letter,” one other Redditor identified.

It is implied that Peter tells Hollyhock the reality about BoJack despite the fact that Peter is reduce off earlier than saying his precise identify. He tells her about an grownup man who went with Pete and his girlfriend and mainly “pressured” all of them to drink. After Pete’s girlfriend Maddie will get so drunk she passes out, the man (BoJack) drops all of them off on the ER and rushes off so he would not get caught giving alcohol to minors.

“And the craziest factor of all? The man, he’s truly type of well-known. I’ve by no means heard of him, nevertheless it seems he’s type of a film star,” Peter tells Hollyhock. 

Whereas many BoJack followers will perpetually be bitter that they by no means discovered what Hollyhock’s letter stated, we will assume what Hollyhock was feeling and it is comprehensible why she’d wish to reduce her brother from her life. It is OK for protagonists to face accountability for his or her actions, and in the end, BoJack obtained the ending he wanted.
