Welcome to Chippendales Episode 8 “Switzerland” Recap
In London, England, Ray Colon (Robin de Jess) is seen standing outside a bar with a gun to his hip and ready to fire. In the five years following Nick De Noia’s death (Murray Bartlett), the Chippendales industry took off. Somen meets Ray in Switzerland after his failed attempt to kill three former Chippendales employees. Somen has severe paranoia and thinks the FBI is watching him. He believes Ray, who is acting a little odder than usual, is out to get him and everyone else in the area. As the two begin to converse, Ray brings up Nick’s murder and the other horrors Somen forced him to perform over the years, but Somen is savvy enough to refrain from making any direct admissions.
But as Ray steadily exhausts him, Somen ultimately makes the admissions that prove he was to blame for everything. In a backstory, we witness the murderer of Nick De Noia being taken into custody by law enforcement for drug possession. When the police ask him to give them information in exchange for a lesser punishment, he reveals everything.
Ray is approached by the FBI; as a result, he initially denies everything but ultimately decides to work with them to capture Somen. When Somen asks Ray to go to London to kill three former Adonis strippers who, in Somen’s opinion, are taking advantage of him, the opportunity arises. He says it, though, in such a loud, suspicious way that Somen worries. When the phone finally rings, the situation gets more stranger.
Somen wants to go, but Ray invites him to stay and enjoy a drink with him. Once he has successfully calmed him down, the conversation is overheard by the FBI agents who live next door. As they are both being detained, we now cut to two months earlier as we witness two strangers selling drugs in a car. Interestingly, the person who killed Nick turned around and gave them Ray. Returning to the present, Ray is detained by the FBI and instructed to wear a wire to track down Somen or risk spending the rest of his life in prison.
Ray contends that everything used to be so good, despite Somen’s observation that things are much better now. After some more back-and-forth, Ray reappears and gently presses for a confession. Ray tries to help Somen through therapy as a result, but Somen flips the script by stating he failed to complete the mission in London. When the device finally detonates, Somen loses her composure and spills the beans.
The FBI is now well-prepared to prosecute him. Somen is taken into captivity by them. Somen is in custody and on the phone with his lawyer, who warns him that he needs a qualified criminal lawyer. She tells him that he is being accused of Rico and that Chippendales is being viewed as a criminal organisation. As a result, they’re going to rob him of everything and leave Irene (Annaleigh Ashford) and his daughter with nothing.
The ghost of Nick is shown telling Somen how foolish he was for what he did in his prison cell while covered in blood from his gunshot wounds. A beeping sound followed the fight with Nick’s ghost, and when the police arrived, they discovered Somen’s body hanging as he had committed himself. As a police officer takes Somen Banerjee’s body through the hallways, we see white lettering across the television, reading, “Somen Banerjee committed suicide hours before his sentencing.” The government was unable to seize his assets as a result. She inherited all of Irene’s belongings, including her Chippendales.
Welcome to Chippendales Finale Ending Explained: Why Did Somen Kill Himself?
As far as we know, Somen has been arrested for murder, arson, and a few more crimes. When he is ultimately caught, his sole thoughts are of Irene and the Chippendales. Irene’s life as a single mother of two children with a husband who had been convicted of murder and other crimes would be extremely challenging. Furthermore, he is aware that, given that he was caught on tape confessing to Nick’s murder, there was little any competent attorney could do.
His business, which the authorities have identified as a criminal enterprise. This implies that Somen will immediately forfeit all of his belongings and assets upon being put in prison. Somen was reluctant to put her in debt because doing so would only make matters worse. Somen is haunted by Nick’s presence, which makes him think about his options. But he has subsequently come to understand his mistake.
If he isn’t found guilty, the government won’t be able to carry out its plans without him; thus, Irene will get everything as expected. To keep his company and give everything to his family rather than the government, Somen kills himself the day before his sentencing.
