Beth’s Harmon’s Final Chess Game | The Queen’s Gambit – Full Scene
In a 1950s orphanage, a young girl reveals an astonishing talent for chess and begins an unlikely journey to stardom while grappling with addiction.
One of the best endings to a series.
Chess speaks for itselfs
You are not allowed to speak to your opponent.
The camera movements are everything, we see a strong angle of beth throughout the whole series, giving us that beth always know how to dominate a situation, till the end and the camera isn't stable show us that beth has finally tame her demons and coming to terms with herself , she finally relaxes not feeling like she being attack or attacking like a queen chess piece she has truly won
If Beth threw me onto the bed and gave me a job i'd probably squirt 10 feet high
Ever notice at about 0:53 when the music is ending that the last notes almost perfectly follow Beth's eye movements as she scans the final board positions?
Intentional or not, it was a very fun and clever effect!
He will win.see over.. movie
This was an amazing series. I'm an apathetic bastard and barely get through a few episodes before I'm all like "meh, I'll watch the rest later" – and never do. I sat down to this at 5pm and was glued to the TV until 2am. Brilliant storytelling, wonderful cast, brilliant execution. I'm in love with cinema at this moment.
Borgov reminds me of Ian
The best part is right before this when she realizes her drugs and booze weren't why she was good, playing the game in her mind with the epic music playing.
Hans Niemann vs Magnus Carlsen at the Sinquefield Cup… or what it should have been had Magnus any class.
Did anyone else think the man she played at the end looked like an old Mr. Shaibel? That part reaally got me.
Mhmms my movie. ❤ and now ppl think j play chess which is funny cuz this movie wasnt about chess
Woke trash, christian hate, white hate, girl beats world, girl is the ultimate chess goddess of all time blah blah blah…you get the point, oh and shes bi so plus plus?
Such a Magnificent Show!
Afterwards, Borgia and his family were killed by the KGB.
I like that she didn't go to the government too. Good role play
This scene makes me smile hard for some reason… 🥲
As a Russian this really touched me.
I implore Americans to immitate her behavior. What an inspiration to us all
You know it's funny thinking on it… she really had no external enemies. Everyone could see her greatness and wanted her to succeed. Even Vasily, her biggest challenge, turns out to be a quiet, kind man. All of her struggles are within and everyone around her supported her, even her competitors.
5:35 imagine if he was karpov. lol
want to draw?… funny don't want to be defeated… ahahahahahhaha
borgov that's so chilling..
This scene was so beautiful.
This was one of the most beautifully written shows. I love that it’s obviously womens empowerment, but it’s WAY BEYOND that.
1) She has disadvantages in life, and instead of being a victim, she found solutions (clothes, money, chess boards, house, payments)
2) She has issues relating to people, and kept her personality while STILL making effort to be a better friend/person with communication
3) She was attacked by both genders and still focused on perfecting her craft
4) Although she was the best, she used her time to try to find flaws in her game. She read books on theories to better her knowledge. She focused on perfecting details instead of marinating in compliments
5) Her awards were great, but meant nothing to her. She took pride in advancing. And instead of celebrating her greatest victory, she went to the park to be around energy of people who LOVE THE GAME. She loved the game, not the fame.
There’s so much I got from this show. It’s relatable to men women young old black white. DETAILS matter, perfecting your craft matters, improvement matters, sportsmanship matters, support matters. Beautiful show!!!
So Why r u playing ?
Damn, Leon becomes skinny
Where can I get a chess set like this?
"You beat the Russians at their own game."
Sir… no one owns chess. That is what makes it a sport worth knowing, a sport worth doing, and a language worth studying.
Her iconic outfit as the white queen is my favorite part of this series
I use to win a lot in chess (93%) till I played in my first tournament. One of my opponents in the tourney ask me if I win a lot by running my mouth. I didn't realize I was doing that. After that I played while trying to shut up, my wins sank to (79%).
Is talking a lot considered a strategy? Did my talking make me play better or did it make my opponent play worse? Both?
See, their I go rambling on & on & on…..😬
She was a great character
Best scene in the whole series, the one in the park! This actress is really incredible.
I absolutely adore Beth , Her power (especially around men she knows could possibly beat her) , but acting like She will always win…. Absolutely iconic, I inspire to be her
It wasnt a checkmate so how did beth win
What an actress and what a great movie. One of the best films I've seen in recent years.
i love how this series is like a journey of Beth collecting her true family members
jolene is her big sister
mrs wheatley is her mom
mr shaibel is her dad
harry, benny and the twins are her brothers
really show how sometimes family doesnt have to be blood-related
Sorry but no way a Russian champion would handle a loss like that! Great movie but the ending was total BS!
The directing and storytelling of this short 6 minute sequence are impeccable. There is very little dialogue but you can tell that Beth goes from disbelief in realizing she won to fully accepting her place atop the chess world to then realizing that not only is she loved and supported by Americans but also by the Russians. Those that are competitive like Borgov and Vasily but also by the common chess player in the park who recognizes her and calls his friends over to just watch her play the game they all love together.
It's also a beautiful juxtaposition of how the game is still the game regardless of whether there are major stakes around it or a casual game at a park. At the end of the day, it's two people who love a game coming together to play with one another. And that simplicity is absolutely beautiful.
I love how they made the Russian man in the park look like Mr Shaibel, bringing the story to a circle
Liza didn't want the fame, she wanted the game, so much respect these men must have felt knowing she saw them instead of the Political Elite, so much to play at a street level. Excellent cinematography, camera in step, then a pan stop as she walked down towards the men…excellent, simply excellent.
I love 💕💕 Beth
this will forever be my PERFECT netflix show. there is no villain, only resilience and love for a game and each other.
A top notch drama in every aspect….loved it
I loved this series and couldn't stop watching it, but like Bridgerton, it never happened. I suspect that younger viewers won't realize that. I have noticed that Netflix shows love to rewrite history with their utopian vision of what should have happened.
