You Can Now Kill The Bride Ending Explained (Will A Sequel Happen?)
Lifetime’s You May Now Kill The Bride may be silly, but it’s also a lot of fun. Here’s the movie’s ending and the likelihood of a sequel explained.
What happened at the end of You can now kill the bride and will the TV movie have a sequel? Made-for-TV movies don’t usually have the best reputation, but for those willing to embrace their ridiculous plots, low budgets, and general camp spirit, they can be a lot of fun. There’s no better place to watch trashy but fun made-for-TV movies than Lifetime, which has been producing them for over 30 years.
Case in point: Lifetime’s 2016 thriller You can now kill the bride. The film follows newly engaged couple Nicole (Ashley Newbrough, Privileged) and Marc (Rocky Myers, sons of thunder) as they rush to plan their wedding in three weeks when they find out the bride-to-be’s dream venue is closing soon. Planning a wedding in such a short time is a stressful task, so Nicole is more than happy to accept the help of Mark’s friendly half-sister, Audrey (Tammin Sursok, Pretty little Liars). However, that’s the realm of ridiculous Lifetime movies, so there’s more to Audrey seemingly being nice than meets the eye.
You can now kill the bride soon reveals that Audrey loves her half-brother Mark – in a romantic rather than a familial way – and will stop at nothing to prevent him from finding love with someone else. Apparently Audrey sabotaged most of Mark’s previous relationships and ended his last marriage by killing his future wife. Audrey soon sets out to sabotage Mark and Nicole’s upcoming nuptials in any way she can – by changing Nicole’s wedding dress alterations so her dress doesn’t match her bridesmaid Celine’s (Aubrey Reynolds, Legends of Tomorrow) in a coma when she becomes suspicious. There’s even a scene where Audrey goes to Mark’s bachelor party dressed as a stripper (with just a wig and eye mask to conceal her identity) and turns on him. As the Lifetime movie draws to a close, Celine wakes up from her coma and reveals Audrey’s obsession with Mark. When Nicole tries to tell Mark that his stepsister is a psychopath, he doesn’t believe her at first but is soon convinced when Aubrey nearly attacks Nicole with a knife. Aubrey is then sent to a mental hospital and Mark and Nicole continue their marriage, but a key in the shape of Aubrey is thrown.
In the final scenes of You can now kill the bride, it’s the wedding day and Nicole is getting ready when she is accosted by Aubrey who knocks her out and tries to drown her in a bathtub. Aubrey attempts to take the bride-to-be’s place at the altar but a deranged Mark rushes to save Nicole who then disarms her stepsister. The film ends with Mark and Nicole, finally married, visiting the readmitted Aubrey in a mental asylum where she seems to be doing well. However, at the end of the film, Aubrey tears up a wedding photo the newlyweds gave her, suggesting that she is just as obsessed with Mark as she was before.
You can now kill the bride falls firmly into such a bad lifetime movie category and the ending of the film certainly left things open for Aubrey to return to wreak more havoc in the future. However, it’s pretty rare to see even a Lifetime popular movie get a sequel, so it’s unlikely there will be a sequel. You can now kill the bride soon.
