Why Inception Has a Happy Ending – Whether in Limbo or Not

I know, it’s been a year since this movie came out, but the debate rages on. I get at least a few comments with varying theories to this site everyday. The two pieces I wrote about the movie, Inception Ending: The top falls and here is the proof and Want to know what the ending to Inception means? I have the answer, still draw some of the most traffic on a daily basis. So here’s a thought that kind of brings the “not in limbo”ers together with the “definitely in limbo”ers.

It doesn’t matter. Either way it’s a happy ending. And I mean a real world happy ending.

If Dom is in limbo, is that really the end? Dom and Mal spent an entire lifetime in limbo and in real time that equated to something like an afternoon. If Dom is in limbo now, that means he’s only sleeping in the real world. Eventually he will wake up, even though he just lived his entire life in the dream. If he is in limbo, then he will wake up eventually. Anyways you slice it, it’s a happy ending. In fact, being in limbo means he’ll wake to an even happier ending than if he didn’t stay in limbo. If the ending is reality, Dom is reunited with kids, but there’s still no Mal. If he is in limbo, he’ll eventually wake to a world where Mal is alive (because she escaped, remember?). In that case, this just makes for the most emotionally draining nightmare in the history if dreaming.

    But in the movie don’t they say something about spending too much time in Limbo and it causing your brain to turn to mush or something along those lines?

      Totally right. And I realized that after talking about it. Unfortunately they were pretty vague about it. Also remember, Dom and Mal spent an entire lifetime inside limbo. Granted, it messed Mal up pretty good, but her brain wasn’t mush and Dom came out fine.
