Never Never Summary

Never Never (Part 1 of 3)

Never Never (Part 1) begins with two high school students, Charlize (Charlie) and Silas, having absolutely no memory at all — right in the middle of a day in high school.

They begin to put some pieces together: They learn that they are a couple, that their families seem to have some bad blood, and that they each have one sibling.

Part 1 mostly focuses on these two characters earnestly trying to figure out what happened to them, why it happened to them, how they can get answers, and how to go about their daily lives without seeming suspicious.

Notably, Silas finds a letter and begins to get some clues as to how the two should move forward in a world where everyone knows them, yet he and Charlie don’t even recognize themselves.


Never Never (Part 2 of 3)

Part 2 of Never Never begins with Silas and Charlie losing their memories all over again.

Charlie is missing after a night out with Silas, and Silas is determined to find her while also getting reacquainted with everyone around him again.

Meanwhile, Charlie is depicted in an institutional setting, being fed unknown medications by a nurse of few words.


Never Never (Part 3 of 3)

Part 3 of Never Never opens with a bit of an unexpected twist: Silas has not lost his memory this time, as he has been reading love letters he and Charlie have written one another to learn about their relationship.

Unfortunately, Charlie has lost her memory for the third time.

They discover that, in recent times, they were not on the best of terms, but also that they’ve known one another since birth and that their love runs deep.

The two become closer and begin to fall in love with one another again. In a way, losing their memories has brought them back to the core of who they are and what they want.

Silas and Charlie’s father previously worked together and there are some questions to be answered about the state of their current business relationship.

Additionally, a fellow student from school may have some unexpected ties to Charlie’s past that neither she nor Silas were expecting.

As the two sort through these difficult matters, while simultaneously trying to sort through their feelings for one another, things become a bit clearer as to what their futures hold.

Ending Explained

Warning: There are spoilers of the ending of Never Never in this section.

Part 3 of Never Never concludes with Silas and Charlie realizing that what causes them to lose their memories is not loving each other.

Charlie’s father went to prison for embezzlement and Silas’s father did not want them to see one another anymore, blaming Charlie for hiding important documents in the court case. As a result, the couple fell out of love.

As they study their old letters and journal entries, they re-discover their love and how powerful it was. They also realize that Charlie is not at fault for hiding the documents, as Silas’s father had previously thought, and that relationship is repaired as well.
