Season Recap: Dark Season 1 starts with the disappearance of an 11-year old guy Mikkel Neilsen in 2019 while searching for the drug dealer Erik’s weed stash in a cave within the forest, with his siblings Martha & Magnus Neilsen, along with friends Jonas Kahnwald, Bartosz Tiedemann and Franziska Doppler. Jonas Kahnwald just returned from the psychiatric institution after his father (Michael Kahnwald) died and his mother Ines Kahnwald hides away his suicide note.
The disappearance of Mikkel interlinked with the Nuclear Power Plant of Winden and the four families: Tiedemann, Doppler, Kahnwald & Neilsen. As the police officer Ulrich Neilsen investigates the case of his son Mikkel’s kidnapping, he learns some mysterious & dark secrets associated with all these four families and how they are interconnected with each other for centuries.
Ulrich learns that his brother Mads Neilsen was also disappeared in the same manner in 1953. On the other hand, a stranger gives Jonas a clue about a wormhole in the cave that lets anyone travels 33 years back in the past or 33 years forward in the future on Apocalypse. While searching for Mikkel, the police find a dead body with bleeding ears and burned eyes who is not of Mikkel but is of Mads who was disappeared in 1953.
Meanwhile, Jonas receives a letter that reveals that his father Michael was actually Mikkel who accidentally travelled back to 1986, married to Hannah, gave birth to Jonas and committed suicide in the present.
To bring back Mikkel in the current time, Jonas decides to find that wormhole & travel back in the time to find out the truth. Stranger gives Jonas a parcel which let him enter in 1986. The disappearance of the other two guys Erik (Drug Dealer) and Yasin (Elisabeth Doppler’s friend) let Ulrich believe that Helge Doppler (Father-In law of his boss Charlotte Doppler) and Priest Noah is involved in all the mysterious kidnappings from 1986 to 2019. The Stranger meets H.G. Tannhaus (who believes in time travel via wormhole) to repair the time-travel machine so the Stranger can destroy the wormhole.
The season ends with Noah’s confession to Bartosz in 2019 that Claudia Tiedermenn (Regina’s mother) is the real enemy who sent Jonas purposely into the wormhole. The young Helge is transported from 1953 to 1986 and Jonas is transported from 1986 to 2052 in Winden. Mikkel still stuck in 1986 & Erik and Yasin killed and left in 1956.

While on one side, Adam wants to preserve the Apocalypse by breaking the loop, but Claudia wants to break both loop and the Apocalypse. On the other hand, Jonas in 2053 wanders in Winden and wants to go back to 2020 using the “God Particle” to stop the Apocalypse going to happen on June 27, 2020.
On June 21, 2020, new police officer Clausen decides to investigate all the disappearances that happened in six months. The adult Jonas reveals everything about Michael and Mikkel to his mother Hannah, and she decides to rescue Ulrich by traveling back in 1953, but instead of rescuing him, she left him there. Nuclear Plant’s owner Aleksander Tiedemann buries barrels of Nuclear waste (potential God Particle) under the concrete. Jonas from 2053 enters in the God Particle and ends up landing in 1921.

Season Recap: The finale season of the Dark will take you to the trip of parallel universes including the Original Universe from where all these cycles were started and can be finished as well. The third and final season of Dark explains all the questions left unsolved in the previous seasons.
The third season begins from where Dark Season 2 ended. Martha from the alternate universe saves Jonas and takes him back to the alternated universe. In this alternate universe, all four families still exist but with some changes. Since Mikkel never traveled back in time, so his son Jonas/Adam is not the part of this universe.
But there is another villain named Eve in this universe which is Alt-Martha. Ulrich again travels back in time but in 1986 this time to kill Adult Helge for the disappearance of his son Mads. In this alt-universe, Ulrich again left Katharina to be with Hannah but cheats on Hannah with Charlotte Doppler.
These two worlds are bound together in a knot and while Adam wants to destroy this Knot, the evil Eve intends to preserve it.
Who are Adam and Eve actually in Dark? Which one of them is the real Evil?
Adam and Eve are actually the future versions of Jonas and Martha, respectively. After bringing Jonas to the alternate universe, alt-Martha gets pregnant with his child. As a child from both the universes, their children and grandchildren formed the family tree of the four families. Adam and Eve learn that their child will be the bridge between these two worlds & the origin of this knot. To destroy the bridge, Adam doesn’t want the birth of his child and thus in one reality kills pregnant Martha.
But Eve/Martha wants to protect her child and thus preserve the knot by manipulating with people. That is why in other reality, the child born and after growing up, try to preserve the knot by murdering and manipulating people.
Adam was unaware of the fact that when Apocalypse occurs, for a fraction of seconds, time pauses and one can create multiple timelines during that period in that universe. But Martha was aware of it and created two timelines: One in which she brings back Jonas to the alt-universe and the other in which Bartosz stops Martha from saving Jonas. Eve needs both versions to preserve the knot and keep her son alive.
Since Martha uses people for her purpose to preserve the knot, and that is why all the killings happen, we can say Martha is the real Evil of Dark.
Dark Season 3 Ending Explained!
Ending of Dark Season 3 depicts how Jonas and alt-Martha finally destroy the origin knot with the help of Claudia. Claudia learns that apart from the two universes of Jonas and alt-Martha, there must be a third universe as well, which is the origin point of this loop. In this origin universe, H.G Tannaus lost his family in an accident in 1970, and to bring them back, he invented the time machine in 1986, which created these other two universes and the knot. To end the knot and the other two universes, it must be needed that the Tannaus family survive that accident, so he doesn’t invent that machine.
Claudia gives this information to Adam and asks him to stop Tannhaus from making the machine by saving his family in that accident. Before the Apocalypse, Adam reaches the moment where Jonas was grieving on Martha’s death and asks him for help. This version of Jonas arrives in the timeline where Bartosz stops Martha from saving Jonas. He and Alt-Martha then travel in 1970 using his time machine to save Tannhaus family from the accident. As his family lives, Tannhaus don’t build the machine, and the other two universes and all the person involved in that knot (including Jonas & Martha) diminishes.
Dark Season 3 ends with happiness where Hannah is pregnant with Woller’s child and decides to keep their child’s name “Jonas”. It leaves us thinking “Is this the part of Another Cycle” or it is just a tribute to Jonas to show no matter what happens, Jonas will exist and maybe lives a tragedy free life now.
