The episode of “Plus belle la vie” broadcast last night on France 3 greatly moved the fans of the series who witnessed the dreaded death of Roland Marci, the patriarch of the series. Internet users did not hesitate to react on social networks.
Better life, it’s almost over. And to begin the end of the series, which will take place on November 18, the writers have made the bold choice to kill one of the symbols of the Mistral. In the episode broadcast this Monday evening, viewers have indeed witnessed the death of Roland Marci (Michel Cordes), emblematic character of the soap opera, present since the launch in 2004.
In this final touching scene, the entire Marci clan is finally reunited at the Mistral bar to celebrate the birthdays of Lola (Marie Mallia) and Kilian (Tim Rousseau). A reunion that is placed under the sign of reconciliation, to the delight of Roland, who sees all the people who are close to his heart finally make peace.
He then decides to play a game of football with Mathis, his grandson. But while everything seems to be going well, Roland collapses on the Place du Mistral, victim of a heart attack. A tragic and moving scene which of course did not fail to react to Internet users who were there last night to bid farewell to the patriarch of the Marci clan.
“The death of Roland really terrible I have never cried so much in front of a stage! The impression that Roland was a member of my family I still tremble”, “it’s too hard in terms of emotions, the writers have gone all out” thus wrote the fans of the series on Twitter.
Some even saw in Roland’s death the symbol of the end of Plus belle la vie, while others hailed the scriptwriting audacity to kill an emblematic character just a few months before the curtain fell.
If many Internet users were affected by the death of Roland, some fans still deplored the decision to kill one of the key characters just a few weeks before the end of Plus belle la vie.
“#PBLV ends in two months after 18 years and the writers have found nothing better than to kill Roland Marci, pillar of the series, in front of his whole family. There were two fucking months left. He could have lived on fishing, love and fresh water but no, heart attack.” can we read on Twitter.
One thing is certain, the next episodes of Plus belle la vie promise to be rich in emotions, since they will be the scene of Roland’s funeral. How will the Marci clan recover from this tragedy? Who will inherit the Mistral bar? Answer in the sequel to Plus belle la vie, available in preview on Salto.
