The Haunting of Bly Manor arrived on Netflix on October 9th but fans have been left asking ‘how did the parents die in The Haunting of Bly Manor?’
As October arrives once again, attention starts to turn towards the spookiest holiday of them all, Halloween.
The creepy time of year is always met with the release of new horror films and TV shows and 2020 is no different.
Netflix’s newest addition to its horror library is The Haunting of Bly Manor which tells of the creepy goings-on at a typically haunted manor house.
The story follows Dani Clayton, a newly-hired au pair, brought in to look after the children at Bly Manor while their busy uncle is working.
One question which has persisted throughout the series, however, is just what happened to Miles and Flora’s parents in The Haunting of Bly Manor and how did they die?
The Haunting of Bly Manor on Netflix
The Haunting of Bly Manor arrived on Netflix on October 9th, 2020.
The nine-episode series follows Dani Clayton (Victoria Pedretti), an au pair (a nanny) for a wealthy family who live in the titular country house, Bly Manor.
However, her job of looking after the children and keeping the house respectable is made much more difficult when it becomes clear that not all is as it seems inside the house.
How did Miles and Flora’s parents die?
One of the biggest mysteries of the series is just what happened to Flora and Miles’ parents, Dominic and Charlotte Wingrave, as they’re never seen and are revealed to have died, the circumstances of which are explored in episode 6.
- The parents in The Haunting of Bly Manor are confirmed to have died while on a trip to India.
The couple’s marriage had long-been under some stress, especially as Dominic regularly worked away from home.
This meant that Charlotte and Dominic’s brother, Harry, got to spend an awfully large amount of time together and it’s even revealed that Flora is the product of Charlotte and Harry’s forbidden affair.
In a last-ditch attempt to save their marriage, Dominic and Charlotte re-trace their honeymoon to India but are killed in a mysterious accident, something which is revealed to Harry when he receives a call from the British consulate in India.
The Haunting of Bly Manor is available to stream now on Netflix after releasing on October 9th, 2020.
