We’re all completely entranced by the new Netflix original, Russian Doll, a Groundhog Day-like story of a woman reliving her 36th birthday over and over and over. But unlike Groundhog Day, this story gets dark and it goes deep: Nadia ends each cycle by dying.

We can’t stop watching the death scenes: there are so many options. Hit by a car, heart attack, falling down the stairs, choking on glass or even suicide. But what you may not have picked up on as you were watching was that each death has symbolic resonance – these things didn’t happen by accident.

So if you’ve made it through the show and you’re not afraid of a few spoilers, come with us through the night of Russian Doll and find out where your choices would take you. But most importantly find out what that death means about you and your emotional states.
