I May Destroy You Episode 8 Recap:
It has been nine months since Arabella has reported her sexual assault with the London Metropolitan Police. All this time, she has tried to engage herself in different things to keep her mental functioning intact. But on the other hand, at the same time, her case has been gaining more and more prominence with the UK Justice System. The last information she had about it was police testing the DNA of a suspect they had found. However, now the case is at a standstill.
With the help of her friend Terry, a desperate Arabella flies to Ostia, a place which had made her happy for the last time. With the hope of the air travel rejuvenating her spirits, Arabella reaches the city and visits Biagio, her former drug dealer, whom she had a thing for. However, Biagio violently indicates their bond is over.
Arabella spends the night asleep by the beach with a crushed paper in her hand, something she was writing. The next morning when she wakes up, she folds the paper and walks into the sea. It is symbolic of her rebirth and possibly an acceptance of nothingness. When she gets on the flight back to England, she has made herself stronger than before- there will be no police to provide retribution, and no one gives her back the nine months that went by.
