That scene is thrilling and crushing at the same time. Her closest relationship is with a presence she can neither see nor hear. That false intimacy she shared with us? He can feel her leaving, and he calls her back.
To Fleabag, and to us the viewers, it feels like an intrusion. We have been a couple for so long, a dysfunctional pairing of speaker and observer.
Chapter 24 & Walton, in Continuation
But now The Priest has entered into our relationship, barged in where no one asked him to be. The confessional booth scene — the moment their attraction finally gallops out of control — comes later in that same episode. But its narrative power is predicated on what came before, when The Priest saw Fleabag slip away and asked her where she went.
When Fleabag and The Priest do finally have sex, though, she is ready to shut us out. She shoves the camera away. God would be an appropriate alternative for Fleabag, a way to give up her secret camera friends and turn toward Him instead. She wants to.
The Museum of Broken Promises
She turns to us as a way to gain perspective and distance from her own life, and if she could feel that way about a higher power, if she could turn her conversations with us into conversations with God, maybe it would be healthier for her. She has mostly given up on the false intimacy she built with her viewers in favor of a real intimacy with The Priest; as they grow closer, she turns to us less and is able to be honest with him.
What should she do without him? She could easily slip back into her old habits, something we the viewers might actually hope for. After all, unhappy dissociative Fleabag is also our Fleabag, the person who gives us her life wrapped up in a self-deprecating, wildly charming bow. Fleabag makes the other choice. Rather than turning to the camera once again and cracking a joke about her devastation, she walks away. She shakes her head, telling us that we cannot follow her, and gives us a sad, resigned, hopeful little wave as she walks away.

Stephanie Clark Nielson and her family have been our friends for more than 30 years. On August 16, , Stephanie and her husband, Christian, were in a plane crash and subsequent fire that scarred her so horrifically that only her painted toenails were recognizable when family members came to identify the victims. There was almost no chance Stephanie could live. After three months in a sleep-induced coma, she awoke to see herself.

With that, the psyche-scarring and horrendous depression came. Having four children under the age of seven, Stephanie did not want them to see her ever again. She felt it would be better not to live.

Broken minds can be healed just the way broken bones and broken hearts are healed. While God is at work making those repairs, the rest of us can help by being merciful, nonjudgmental, and kind.
