Did Thomas Commit Suicide at The Ending of “the Voyeurs”?
After seeing Seb's picture exhibition, “The Voyeurs,” Pippa and Ari learned that their flat was owned by Seb and Julia. In order to keep Thomas and Pippa distracted from their studio apartment, the eccentric couple set up a trap.
The newlyweds fell for the ruse and became preoccupied with the problems of their next-door neighbors rather than their own. As a result, Seb and Julia took advantage of the curiosity and created a pictorial story based on the terrible story of Pippa and Thomas for their exhibition.
Pippa was devastated by the findings and chose to permanently leave the flat. While removing the bird water feeder from the window, Pippa saw eight dead birds on the outer window ledge.
Drinking water laced with chlorophyll was a favorite beverage of Thomas's. A bottle of chlorophyll water was found in Thomas's residence, and it was drunk by him just before his death. He also put some in the bird water feeder, proving that the water had been tainted. But who is it, exactly?
Pippa sent Seb and Julia a bottle of Sassari (red wine) and a printing command to their wireless printer a few days later. It appears that Pippa blamed Seb and Julia for Thomas' death, according to the document.
Seb discovered that Pippa had been spying on them from the terrace, and the pair chased after her to put an end to her crazed behavior. Seb and Julia followed Pippa into her optician's office, L'optique, and cornered her.
When Pippa was sleeping with Seb, Pippa speculated that Julia may have poisoned Thomas' chlorophyll water. On the same night, Thomas drank poison and died. Julia later hung his body from the ceiling to make it appear as if he had taken his own life.
It was Julia and Seb's fault that the birds confirmed, however, as they too drank the chlorophyll water. It was too late for the pair to deny such accusations. At the perfect time, Pippa's wine had been laced with sleeping pills.
To help Julia and Seb, Pippa placed them on the operating table, and with the aid of the machine, burned their eyes (pupil or iris, maybe).
In the end, the studio apartment next to Julia and Seb's was occupied by two young males. The screen showed an older Julia and Seb, whose eyes were burned and whose vision was blurry, from their perspective. Even though Pippa continued to monitor her neighbor, she finally left the binoculars on the terrace, indicating that her quest for vengeance and retribution was over.
