After they returned to her place, she poisoned them both in a murder-suicide. Matt also talks about his job, training "cookies" of people—digital clones stored in an egg-shaped object—as personal assistants.
He describes the experience of Greta's Chaplin cookie, who refused to be a personal assistant. Matt fast-forwarded time inside the cookie's world for six months, and she relented under the threat of further boredom and isolation.
Joe reluctantly talks. Blocking causes them to see each other and their offspring as grey silhouettes and prevents Joe from contacting Beth. Months later, Joe tried to confront her still-pregnant silhouette, leading to legal enforcement of the block.
Each Christmas Eve, Joe travelled to Beth's father's house to spy on the little girl. The block was removed when Beth died in a train accident, which allowed Joe to discover that Beth had an affair and he was not the child's father.
In a distressed confrontation with Beth's father, Joe struck him with a snow globe, killing him, and left.
The girl found her grandfather and set off into the snowy wilderness to get help, only to freeze to death. While telling the story, the cabin gradually transforms into Beth's father's house.
Joe and Matt are in a cookie, the five years having been a result of altered perception of time, and Joe's cookie has given testimony which can be used to convict Joe.
In exchange for extracting the confession, Matt avoids imprisonment for his role in Harry's death, but he is now convicted as a sex offender and is permanently blocked by everyone.
Meanwhile, an officer sets Joe's cookie to experience time at 1, years per minute, with the song " I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday "—which played as he killed Beth's father—on repeat.
Following the second series of Black Mirror , Channel 4 agreed on a third series of four episodes on the condition that detailed synopses of episodes were given.
After presenting some ideas to the channel, series creator Charlie Brooker and executive producer Annabel Jones were told that they "weren't very Black Mirror ", leaving the show in a limbo situation.
A year later, Brooker and Jones were able to negotiate a minute Christmas special, "White Christmas". The episode incorporated one of the ideas they pitched, "Angel of the Morning", which became the dating storyline with Matt, Harry and Jennifer.
The episode was written by Brooker. It was directed by Carl Tibbetts, who had previously directed series two episode " White Bear ". Inspirations for the episode, which is a portmanteau of three stories, include the horror film Dead of Night  : and the science fiction film Twilight Zone: The Movie ,  : both of which are anthologies.
The setting of a spaceship was briefly considered. The episode's stories introduce two new technologies, which are both important to the ending.
The Z-Eyes allows the user to stream video from their eyes and to block people from their vision. The other technology is a duplicate of a person's consciousness, stored in a small egg-shaped cookie.
Unprecedented for the show, "White Christmas" reuses technology from another episode: after several designs for the Z-Eyes, it was decided that the device from series one episode " The Entire History of You " should be used.
In the first draft, Trent's character was cheerful and cockney to contrast with Joe. Following this, he was offered a part as Trent.
Joe is played by Rafe Spall , who had previously read a script for another Black Mirror episode. He is initially very quiet and not able to recall precisely why he is in the cabin.
Every time the cabin is shown, some details are changed until it becomes the house in which Joe commits the murder.
The cooker, work surface, fireplace and clock are some of these details. Additionally, at one point Joe hears a noise which is his cell sliding shut as someone checks on him.
The first story about dating featured Trent, Harry and Jennifer. It was inspired by Brooker's observations of people on the street using Bluetooth headsets for calls, who looked like they were talking to themselves "as if they had a mental illness".
The horse anecdote was inspired by Brooker reading "bullshit ice-breakers" used by pickup artists. Oona Chaplin was cast as Greta, roughly two days before filming, when Chaplin was working in Los Angeles.
Brooker had considered this idea for a while, and realised it was a "fucking nightmare" rather than a love story. One draft of the story showed Greta's cookie watching Greta play with her kids, realising that she would never be able to hug her children again.
This scene was rejected as "too weird and nasty" for the episode, but later used in series four episode " Black Museum ".
The third story is about Joe and his girlfriend Beth. It was based on an idea from Brooker's series Unnovations in which a pair of glasses showed homeless people as cartoon characters.
With the invention of Google Glass , this looked more possible in reality. The idea of blocking on social media was also considered.
For the setting, a slightly futuristic London and a world in which the characters lived on boats were both considered. However, the episode had a very limited budget.
Filming took place in four corners of London within a short period of time, which posed a challenge. Sets were built at Twickenham , which would be used during production of later series.
The soundtrack was composed by Jon Opstad. The colour palettes, costumes and soundtrack of the three stories are designed to be similar to each other, to give the episode an overarching identity.
The first story has monochrome tones and a "lopsided weirdness" to its soundtrack; Jennifer's dress is made of navy leather and mesh to signify her role as a dominatrix.
Jetlagged, Chaplin fell asleep during some of her early scenes, which required her to lie down on an operating table. Greta wears an outfit similar to a kimono , to indicate her " Zen -like existence", while her cookie wears a neoprene fabric.
The score for the second story is "crisp, clean [and] sterile", using digital synths to contrast with the rest of the soundtrack. The ending shows Joe smashing the radio repeatedly, as it reappears each time.
It was decided on the day that this should be filmed in one continuous take, with stagehands quickly replacing the radio on the table; this was difficult due to their limited supply of radios.
A shot of Joe smashing the snow globe, only for it to reappear, was cut. During filming, Brooker had an idea for the closing moments, which show the camera continually panning out from the cabin to show it inside a snow globe.
The effect used many different takes as well as visual effects. Thematically, the episode addresses the topic of punishment and of whether artificial intelligence can be "a form of life".
This observation is most obvious in the second story where Greta decides to literally detach her mind from her body, a thought experiment that is old as the practice in philosophy itself.
More questions about the possibility, morality and purpose of why one would duplicate his mind into an electronic egg what is this thing?
There are a lot of elements in this scene showing the contradictions coming to thought about the possibility of this kind of split, and furthermore, if this kind of distinction between mind and body is even plausible.
I'm mentioning this of course, in regarding to the moment that Mathew chooses to drift the time in Greta's subjective sense of being.
When Matthew pushes that button to advance in time for 6 month, you cannot but feel great empathy for the pain that Greta the electronic egg is going through.
The first sub-story is less straightforward but can be similarly read. In this scene, Matthew is coaching Harry to hit on Jenifer at a party using a device, which allows Matthew to see, hear, and talk to Harry while he's making a move on her.
At the beginning, we see how this kind of technology will come to use in practical terms, in a resemblance to the Google Glass we have today.
Taking the plot to the route of insanity encourages the viewer to focus his attention to the comparison between the two characters, in how their thoughts come to mind, and the way they differ in that regard.
How Matthew is more real than the voices in Jenifer's head? How can one distinguish a voice from a "genuine" thought? But these kinds of questions are mostly boring.
The indecision of approaching to a woman in a party will sound about the same in Harry's head, even without Matthews's technological presence in his mind.
This indecisiveness is always present in our everyday lives, expressed in a multiple voices arguing about different wants, in opposition to the notion of a single decisive intention which one can call "me.
To write shortly about the way identity comes to function in the third story, it can be seen how Joe constructs his child's gender and personality through imagination alone, only to discover to be wrong, and the child he was observing is not really his.
Furthermore, in the end of the episode Joe confess his wrong doing of assaulting Beth's father, but like in Greta's case, the viewer realizes the whole confession was taking place only in Joe's mind.
The following scene is suggesting that this kind of confession from a "cookie mind" copied from the original Joe is sufficient to convict him in court.
So it seems that even the ending of this episode is mainly focused on the same mind-body problem as elaborated above. I hope you enjoyed this kind of reading.
I really think that in this "White Christmas" episode the Black Mirror creators maid a leap in asking more "deep" questions than they generally would.
Whether or not it was successfully done is for debate. But I can surely say that for me, seeing this episode and reading it in that way was pretty enjoyable and entertaining.
