Finally, they get matched together again and this time, they realize that they are in love.But when Frank succumbs to his insecurities and checks their expiration date when they each agreed not to, the algorithm erases the years they would potentially have together due to his betrayal.Among the group, he delivered on that inference with three episodes and "Hang the DJ" is the most hopeful of them all. Though the series has taken on romance in previous stories ("Be Right Back," "The Entire History of You" and, of course, "San Junipero"), "Hang the DJ" embodies the most recognizable of romantic comedy tropes as a commentary on online dating.And it's timely ending is all the more satisfying given the female protagonist's ultimate win against an oppressive system.After their first date, the story begins to shift more to Amy's perspective, though it follows both Amy and Frank as they continue to work the system and bounce from one sub-par relationship to another."The idea of option paralysis and having too many options at your fingertips almost jolts your thinking about how online dating can be quite harmful," Campbell says of the darker side of the story.
Though it seems that an app has paired them together, it gradually becomes clear that Amy and Frank live in some sort of world that is governed by this dating system.
Only given 12 hours until their relationship will expire, Amy and Frank enjoy a date that is, by all accounts, a nice night together.
