It’s been one week since Prime Video’s Swarm hit the platform, and fans can’t stop talking about the show.
Since the show’s March 17 debut, fans have put on their detective hats and conjured up different theories about the series. Swarm, which was created by Donald Glover and Janine Nabers, centers around Dre (Dominique Fishback) and her obsession with a pop singer named Ni’Jah, who has a dedicated Beyoncé-like fanbase. As the episodes unfold, Dre finds herself going to extreme measures to take down anyone who is not a fan of her idol.
From the start of Swarm, fans get insight into Dre’s obsessive behavior through her relationship with her sister Marissa, who is played by Chloë Bailey. After Bailey’s character appears to die by suicide by the end of the first episode, fans have questioned whether or not Dre could be responsible for her death.
The theories don’t stop there. There’s also the question of whether or not Bailey and Damson Idris’ sex scene was fake or not. Glover has been known to not give any answers regarding lingering questions about his projects, like Atlanta’s finale, leaving much of them up to the viewers’ interpretation—and Swarm is no different. After binge-watching the show, and doing a deep dive into the wildest ideas about the series so far, here’s everything you need to know.
