What was the function of the mainframe hidden in the basement?

So here comes “The Matrix” reference. The đen box fixated in each patient’s room, somehow, was virtually connected with their brains. These đen boxes were operated by a mainframe computer in the basement that created a simulation facility named Second Chance khổng lồ steal the patient’s talent and transfer it to lớn the respective buyers.

But the mainframe wasn’t designed lớn handle the rebellious emotions, và violent behavior witnessed in Magda and Julia. Thus, it crashed and overheated often due to lớn the rebels of the simulation. Understanding the fragility of the system, Piotr pressured Zofia to lớn quickly transfer Julia’s talent to her son, Adam/Ksawery.


Doctor Zofia sold a story to lớn Julia/Karolina that her parents died in a fire accident. She also tried seeding doubts in Karolina’s mind about killing her parents to lớn curb Karolina’s curiosity & rebellious spirit that proved fatal for a simulated reality. But she fought against all odds and cracked the simulation. She came out alive, just lượt thích Magda/Janina Hass. They both drowned themselves in water that triggered their brain lớn wake up, in short, “open their eyes.”

When Karolina woke up, she saw a đen box placed on the side table of the hospital for a brief moment. Though, it vanished in the next moment. The curious question that still haunts is who put it there and who made it disappear.


‘Open Your Eyes’ Ending, Explained

Karolina và Janina survived the simulation because they rebelled against it, but Szymon died in it. Inside the facility, Magda clearly established that no one gets out alive. They kill every patient in the end. Thus, it was important for Karolina lớn solve its mystery và save her friends, Iza, Milena, and others, from an unwanted death.

The ray of hope arrived at Karolina’s doorstep when Zofia visited her as her new psychologist. Zofia informed Karolina that Piotr cleansed Adam/Ksawery’s brain after the talent transfer.

Zofia instructed Karolina khổng lồ revisit the simulation through the đen box she brought to save her friends and destroy the Second Chance forever. It was the ultimate retribution Zofia was looking for.

‘Open Your Eyes’ Season 2: Expectations

In ‘Open Your Eyes‘ Season 2, Karolina will infiltrate the artificial reality to save Iza, Milena, và Pawel and destroy the simulation so it can no longer carry out its devilish schemes. Her journey will be worth witnessing.


I have a personal theory according to which I believe that Karolina’s mother too used the Second Chance services on Karolina when she was a child. A scene in Karolina’s hallucinations depicts her playing the piano while wearing a transmitter. Other evidence to prove the theory is that just lượt thích Adam, Karolina had no interest in playing piano, as suggested by Karolina’s younger sister, Patrycja. Karolina’s mother wanted her daughter khổng lồ become a Prodigy just lượt thích other ambitious parents who visited the Second Chance. It could be, or it could be not, Season 2 will unravel further.
