The finale of The Queen’s Gambit is a masterful finish. One which, similar to Unorthodox, will surely lead to its creators, directors, writers, and star to be a constant during awards season.
While Benny helps Beth become the best she could be, a new friend takes her down a path that brings her back to her worst.
Despite the last episode’s events, the focus of “Fork” is more so Beth testing her ability to have a personal life as chess begins to lose its luster.
In what was almost an uneventful episode, Beth faces a Russian master and gets to see Alma at her peak.
As we speed through the years and many wins of Beth, we come upon someone who has found her weakness. But is that weakness her style of play or her heart?
After finding a home, Beth moves on to the next thing she needs to find joy in her life – chess tournaments. The thing she has been deprived of for so long.
