'Dirty John' finale: John Meehan comes for Debra Newell's daughters in terrifying climax

A flurry of great cable ratings, a Golden Globe nomination, and insane storytelling later, Bravo's 'Dirty John' is finally inching towards a truly terrifying close. In the finale, expect things to take a dark and drastic turn as John targets Debra's two daughters, Terra and Veronica.

The last episode left us with an impending sense of doom after Debra and her lawyer managed to get John to the police station after he set her Maserati on fire and he turned the whole thing on Debbie instead. He convinced them that she was just a psychotic woman who wanted to get him into trouble and wriggled out of the accusation stating that they were married and it made no sense for him to destroy his own property.

He seemed consistently cocky, under the impression that Debra could never beat him at his own game — not even once. His chain of thought isn't entirely misplaced. Debra has been excessively forgiving and naive throughout the season. However, his underestimation is her greatest asset and she realized that in the last episode.

The next episode, titled 'This Young Woman Fought Like Hell' picks up from where episode six had left off. Remember when Debra and Veronica met at the restaurant in secret to decide what to do next with John? Ronnie had suggested that they kill him and the conversation was left unfinished.

In this upcoming finale, Veronica is back in action and updates Debra about the horrible things John has been doing to them without her knowing.

Turns out after burning their mother's car, John had been stalking Terra, Debra's youngest child. Ronnie informs their mom that she saw him stalking her and that she really wants to call the police. Debbie narrates her incident with the police and tells her that they would do nothing and pretend that their hands were tied — especially before he causes harm. Ronnie decides to alert Terra too and unfortunately, she doesn't seem to get a grasp on the situation.

In a chilling clip about the finale, John is seen tampering with a car's wires. Meanwhile, Debra also finds out that he's started dating again and it appears to hurt her.



 

The finale will definitely only involve Debra's family and John and for some reason, it feels like it will be the inconspicuous Terra who ends up putting the dagger into John Meehan. There's also a chance that Veronica does it to save her sister, but if the real story ending has been adapted exactly the same onto the telly, then John Meehan's luck has run out. 

Episode 8, the season finale of 'Dirty John' airs on Sunday, January 13 at 10/9c on Bravo.
