Adrien Winckler, a writer, is the protagonist of ‘Black Butterflies,’ also known as ‘Les Papillons Noirs,’ which can be found streaming on Netflix.
Winckler accepts a job to write the memoir of Albert, an elderly man. Nevertheless, Adrien’s encounters with Albert take her down a perilous and convoluted path, as Albert’s love story quickly becomes a confession of serial killings. Olivier Abbou and Bruno Merle are responsible for creating the captivating plot that is told in the French series, which leaves viewers perplexed until the very end. A sequence that takes place after the credits roll in the concluding episode contributes to the overall sense of ambiguity and casts previously established events in a different light. Obviously, viewers have questions about the additional scene, and we will do our best to answer them. In that case, here is our analysis of the scenario that occurs after the credits roll in the movie “Black Butterflies.”
Black Butterflies Post Credits Scene: What Happens to Wim Wrinkler?
The conclusion of “Black Butterflies” sees Adrien being taken into custody by Mathilde. In the hopes of finding out what happened to Carrel, she demands that Adrien give her the narrative he heard from Albert and hopes that he will. However, the credits rolled before we were able to witness Adrien’s response. Nevertheless, while the credits are rolling (which takes a few minutes), a bonus scene is played for the audience. It shows a young Adrien interacting with his food in a playful manner. Wim Wrinkler, Adrien’s stepfather, yells at him and tells him to stop fiddling with his food. Wim gives Adrien a slap when she persists in making a mess, but Adrien continues to make a mess. Catherine, also known as Solange, pulls a knife and ends Wim’s life after becoming enraged by his activities. In the end, she hits herself with the belt that Wim had given her in order to make it appear as though she had killed her husband in self-defense.
There is a connection between the post-credits scene and the very first scene of the series. In the very first scene of the series, we see a young Adrien sitting at the dining table, looking troubled until a black butterfly breaks free from a wall hanging. After that, Adrien’s expression returns to normal. While this is going on, the sounds of his mother working in another room may be picked up on. The post-credits segment sheds light on the real-life events that led to Wim Wrinkler’s passing, providing essential background information for the opening scene.
During the course of the series, Catherine reveals to Adrien that at the beginning, Wim was friendly and considerate. On the other hand, he eventually turned abusive and harassed her. As a result of Wim’s abusive behavior against Adrien, she was compelled to take her own life in order to protect herself. Catherine’s allegation that she was acting in self-defense was upheld by the judge, and she was not sentenced to jail as a result. Adrien, however, does not believe his mother and believes that she is intentionally deceiving him. Therefore, the news articles that Adrien reads provide evidence that Catherine’s account of the event is accurate.
The sequence that plays after the credits roll shows that Catherine did not kill Wim out of self-defense but rather out of cold blood. Catherine did what she did out of concern for her son, but it is very evident that Will did not cause her any harm. As a consequence of this, it may be deduced that Wim did not engage in abusive behavior with Catherine. Instead, it is likely that she murdered him out of resentment. It is possible that Catherine has become skilled at playing the role of a victim, as evidenced by the fact that she used Wim’s belt to inflict injuries on herself. Because of this, Catherine was able to get rid of her second husband and cover up his murder by playing the victim card and claiming that she was the victim.
In the end, the sequence that plays after the credits explains the mystery surrounding Wim Wrinkler’s passing and demonstrates Catherine’s actual part in the occurrence. It demonstrates that Catherine’s propensity to commit murders is continuing to dominate her, indicating that she is not as innocent as she claims to be. However, the scenario also draws attention to a terrible occurrence that played a role in shaping Adrien’s thinking and led to the formation of his warped personality, both of which are revealed as the show develops.

In order to complete his manuscript, he makes the decision to spend the next two or three months traveling to see his sons and their mother. In spite of Jack’s assurances that he will come back, Ingrid is heartbroken at the prospect of the two of them being separated for such a significant amount of time, and she begs him not to leave.
