‘The Twelve’ (De Twaalf) Ending Explained: Frie Palmers’ case may have closed but floor is still open for debate

The Twelve

Some shows are worth their salt. When the intention of a gritty series is to ensure it troubles the mind, then ‘The Twelve’ (De Twaalf) has done hit the nail on the head as it leaves the viewers with enough to ponder over even after the end credits roll. To quickly set the context, ‘The Twelve’ is a Flemish courtroom drama that intertwines a murder mystery and the lives of the 12 jurors who are connected to the case. The narratives are skilfully woven making it a thrilling affair.

The ten-episode drama follows Maaike Cafmeyer’s Frie Palmers, a headmistress accused of a double murder, her daughter Rose (Estelle Sys), and best friend, Brechtje (Lynn Van Royen). The sub-plots come in the form of the juror’s lives that have an impact as they actively work the case. Quite simply, the series is about how there are different perspectives to a case rather than a solid opinion or viewpoint. Moving to the ending, the final chapter, titled ‘Brechtje and Roos’ is all about the decision.

Frie is sentenced to 30 years of jail time while Stefaan (Aimé Claeys), her ex-husband, walks away. The jurors decide not to rule in Frie’s favor after she is deemed guilty of killing Brechtje. The vote reads 7-5 as guilty which comes as a doubtful majority in the case of Brechtje’s murder. When it comes to Rose’s murder, they look at all possible suspects including Stefaan. The final verdict sees Frie not guilty. Their decision may have been made, however, the scintillating part that remains a mystery is how the jurors manage to judge Frie.

The final minutes of the show see her attorney find the pair of missing gloves that were used for the child’s murder in one of her old books leading to the conclusion that Frie indeed was responsible for the death of her daughter. All this though happens after a major chunk of the finale deals with the jurors battling their personal demons.

With the pressure mounting to deliver a verdict, the trauma these 12 go through is essentially the highlight of the series. ‘The Twelve’ portrays the justice system in a new light. The multi-layered and unique approach makes for a compelling watch and in the end, it is all about how jurors like Delphine (Maaike Neuville), and Holly Cuesters (Charlotte De Bruyne) try their best to stay impartial despite their troubled pasts.

Creators Sanne Nuyens and Bert Van Dael manage to roll out an intriguing story with ‘The Twelve’. The Belgian crime drama is currently streaming on Netflix. If you have an entertainment scoop or a story for us, please reach out to us on (323) 421-7515

TV Actress Rape Case: 'Ayush Tewari Has Nothing To Do With Bellbottom', Says Film's Casting Director Vaibhav Vishant




A TV actress has accused a certain casting director named Ayush Tewari of raping her for two years under the pretence of marriage. She told the Versova police that after two years of harassment, which was sexual and physical in nature, she parted ways with the man. But, Tewari continued to send her unsolicited sexual messages. She also informed her brother about her ordeal and he also had a word with Tewari, but the situation did not improve. A police official said on Monday that the FIR was registered last week after the actress submitted an application. Now, certain media reports claimed that the accused worked on the film, Bellbottom which features Akshay Kumar, Vaani Kapoor, Lara Dutta, Huma Qureshi in lead roles. Television Actress Accuses Casting Director of Rape, Further Investigation is Underway.

However, casting director for Bellbottom, Vaibhav Vishant has categorically denied Ayush’s involvement with any aspect of the film. Vishant did agree that Tewari was an intern at his company but said he has no role to play in the casting of Bellbottom. Vaibhav Vishant said, “It is distressing to see the film and the names of others associated with the film being tarnished with false and unverified allegations,”

He added, “I am the casting director of Bellbottom. The individual Ayush Tewari was a freelancer intern in my company and has nothing to do with the film or its casting. He has not worked on Bellbottom in any capacity. It is extremely upsetting to see that some publications in order to get a clickbait headline will go to any lengths to put out uncorroborated and unsubstantiated information. This individual Ayush Tewari has nothing to do with Bellbottom. I hope the police will conduct a fair investigation and justice will be served. However, I will request media publications to correct the facts and stop linking Bellbottom to this case.”

After Weekend, Halsey Also Slams Grammys for Corruption, Says ’Hoping for More Transparency ‘

After Weekend, Halsey Also Slams Grammys for Corruption, Says ’Hoping for More Transparency ‘




After being snubbed at the Grammy nominations this year, American singer-songwriter Halsey has called out the nomination process, criticising it for being about more than just releasing quality music or cultural impact. BTS At Grammys 2020: From Boy With Luv to Mic Drop, 5 Songs That the K-Pop Hotties Should Perform at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards!

“I’ve been thinking and wanted to choose my words carefully because a lot of people have extended sympathy and apology to me since the Grammy nominations. The Grammys are an elusive process,” she wrote on Instagram Stories.

“It can often be about behind the scenes private performances, knowing the right people, campaigning through the grapevine, with the right handshakes and ‘bribes’ that can be just ambiguous enough to pass as ‘not bribes’. And if you get that far, it’s about committing to exclusive TV performances and making sure you help the Academy make their millions in advertising on the night of the show,” she added.

The singer continued: “Perhaps sometimes it is (!!!) but it’s not always about the music or quality or culture. Just wanted to get that off my chest. @theweeknd deserves better, and Manic did too (woman shrugging emoji) perhaps it’s unbecoming of me to say so but I can’t care anymore. While I am THRILLED for my talented friends who were recognised this year, I am hoping for more transparency or reform. But I’m sure this post will blacklist me anyway.”

Halsey has not received a single nomination for her 2020 album Manic, which included the chart-topping single Without meGRAMMYs 2021 Nominations: The Weeknd Slams Recording Academy After His Snub, Says ‘The Grammys Remain Corrupt’

In a social media post last week, The Weeknd also accused the Recording Academy of being “still corrupt”. His reaction got a response from interim Grammy chief Harvey Mason jr., who insisted that the process is legitimate.

“All the records get the fairest of fair shakes,” he said to variety.com, adding: “We listen to all the music — it’s a long, arduous process and people take pride in it. The people in that room care: there’s no agendas in there, there’s no ‘let’s snub this person’ or that person. It’s about, ‘Let’s try and find excellence’.”

The 2021 Grammy Awards nominations were announced on November 24, with Beyonce leading the way with nine nods, followed by Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa and Roddy Ricch with six apiece.
