What is Fatmagul’s Fault? (Fatmagulun Sucu Ne?)


  1. Totally agree with you there. I don’t like sex scenes at all and Turkish dramas are the reason why I love watching shows like Love & Punishment and the one with Biter, Nihal and Adnan, can’t remember the name. I’m so disappointed with The Girl I Loved, the ending was such a mystery. I feel so sorry for Sinan, he’s suffered too much. He’s had to put up with a crazy psychotic Derin, a dumb father and a very fickle Mine who can’t decide what she wants. I know that Timur couldn’t have shot Sinan because he was going to get keep his prize, Mine so there’s no need to keep Sinan away as he had no motive. It did look suspicious because he left his wedding party to do something but will now need an alibi.I think the person who shot him was either Derin or the guy who wanted to take Ena’s child away, Yasmina. It could also be Memo but realistically speaking, I don’t think he’d want to go through all that again because Sinan had dropped charges when he stabbed him.

    Waiting for season 2 now!

  2. This is the third Turkish drama I have watched. Never having been to Turkey, I love the views In and around Istanbul and the view of Turkish culture. I so wanted Mine to end up with Sinan. Obstacles were continuously put in his way. I did not like the controlling character that Ayten so clearly called out as controlling. I think the acting by the character playing Emine was award winning, such a difficult role. My favori te character was Surreya. I want an aunt like that!

  3. I find it puzzling that a 37 years old man find it appropriate to marry a 17 years old but wouldn’t want that for his own daughter. That makes him a pervert in my book.

    I can’t see the dislike for Sinan he was robbed of his girlfriend and Son by his mother and father and the family of the the person he love.

    He was also robbed by the nasty ass man now trying to play daddy and who stopped at nothing to commit crimes to get the 17 years old girl he wanted.
    That’s not love that’s obsession and sickness, you don’t do that to someone if you love them.

    Who in the world would be happy in Sinan’s shoes, you can can’t see your own child after everything that happened with no fault of your own but watching another man be daddy with visitation rightss.

    He should had taken their asses to court ages ago and blasted it on the prime time news. Can’t believe people are actually saying he was immature and okay with a pervert doing what he did.

    Not once did he payed for his crimes which I am sure is not the first time he has gotten away with it!

    The only person suffered unnecessary in that show was Sinan and if this is how Turkish shows are this is my first and last one.

    In no country or cultural she an adult be able to marry and control a young person.

    None of the loved Mine in the end I ended up disliking her myself, I hope no young woman watched this show and think it was okay to do what she and her family done to that young man and his son even after they had more than enough chances to fix it.

    Even if she no longer wanted him they should had let him have a relationship with his child it wasn’t his fault he wasn’t there it was all of them.

    Couldn’t stand Mine’s mother, matter of fact it was 2 Women in the show I liked in the end The nanny and Mine’s father girlfriend.Will never watch another one of these

  4. Loved this wanted to see season 2 and the end of the wedding we all wait for I so enjoyed all 79 shows was on pins n needles to see second season so so disappointing

  5. I too am disappointed that there is no conclusion to this movie. Why leave this many unanswered question? Is there a book form of this story with the finished ending? And if so is there an English version?
    Doesn’t anyone want to buy this unfinished movie and finish it.
    Unhappy watcher

  6. I had watched all 79 episodes of The Girl I Loved last year and was absolutely mortified to find out that I was going to be left hanging because they never produced a final season. Failing the production of a final season to properly conclude the series, it would have been acceptable if the producers had concluded it with, say, a 3-part mini series; they still could even at this late date. As it stands, I am hating the fact that I ever started watching this series, even though it captured my attention to the extent that I “binge” watched it. I ABSOLUTELY HATE IT WHEN THE PRODUCERS LEAVE THE ENDINGS UNFINISHED.

    • Your not the only one – this is the second Turkish series I have watched where Series 1 goes for about 80 episodes, which you binge watch, only to find it stops with no conclusion – am so angry for wasting my time. Next Turkish series I watch (if I bother) I will goggle first to see if further series are available and also check any blogs to see what others have to say …. these Turkish film companies are quite odd to say the least.

  7. I find myself being captivated by these Turkish dramas. I was very disappointed in this ending. I loved the character of Bala. She was so beautiful and cheerful. Mine was so long faced all of the time. I laughed so hard at Erdets antics. Mines sister Emine played her part so well. I loved this show, and really hope there will be a season two.

  8. Can anyone tell me who is the lovely actress portraying Timur’s friend Bala?

    If there are any folks here who can provide more details about the different music selections, I’d love to know more…, ie artists, what type of music, ie turkish classical, or folk, or popular? as well as whether this is well-known already to a Turkish audience or was composed especially for this drama.

    I have watched 72 episodes of this so far, and although I can’t stand all the melodrama and other aspects of the “soap opera” genre, I still end up sticking with it. Why is that I ask myself?

    There are moments of such exquisite acting, I cannot stop, and also, despite some of what sounds like the same repetitive violin music (is this the exact same music used in other Turkish soaps—sure sounds like it!), there is music at times of simply ravishing beauty. I love the songs in them as well, remind me of Greek music I have also loved for years. I found Mine’s father Turan incredibly thick, inarticulate and annoying (the character not the actor). Mine’s mother’s constant histrionic fits made my head ache, and the comic-relief characters of Erdal and Funda go on and on and on…. Still I watched, hoping that Mine would eventually realize that Sinan is an immature, self-centered brat, braying like a donkey about his “rights”, and ignoring every consideration he should be paying to his son, to Mine, to Timur, etc. Sinan’s world is all about himself and his endless feelings. On the other hand, Timur is so much more deserving and self-sacrificing. Both men are demanding but we can count on Timur to always do the right and unselfish thing in the end, at great cost to himself. I was extremely touched by the way in which he lets go of Mine, and even goes to great efforts to get Sinan out of prison so Mine can go to him. At a point when he is deeply suffering himself, he even takes pains to be attentive to his friend Bala during her chemotherapy. And if that isn’t enough, he goes out of his way to straighten out the mess over the DNA test, even though doing so does not help his own case. I was touched over and over again by his loyalty and generosity to his employees, to Mine’s family, etc. For a man with this much money, he is unspoiled, and not at all arrogant, which we can see in his easy ability to speak with the poor guy on the shoreline. I’d take such a husband any old day! Mine, at times, I wanted to strangle for her inability to appreciate Timur. Fortunately, the series allows her to mature enough to become disenchanted with the vain spoiled Sinan and to see Timur for who he is.

    I stopped watching before the final episodes on Netflix because experience has shown me that Turkish dramas frequently end abruptly deliberately withholding a happy ending which is usually deserved by this time! Despite a ridiculous amount of high drama, ie. nearly fatal accidents, stabbings, fires, break-ins, arrests, trials, etc, the cast shines here uniformly. Every role has a great actor/actress in it. I especially wanted to praise those acting as Timur, Seda, Emine, Bala, Mine, Kerem, Surreya and Merve. The actress portraying Emine has an especially thankless job since her character is so unlikeable and mean-spirited. To make such a role interesting is the hallmark of great acting in my mind.

    • Well we can’t really blame Sinan. 2.5 years of his life were taken away from him, he lost the love of his life, he lost his son, so I think that’s why he became kind of hot-headed. Instead of handling matters maturely, he would just get frustrated. But I still wanted Mine to be with Sinan, I don’t know why lol..

      • Timur has lost a lot also, but he can still put others’ interests before his own, and he doesn’t have a temper tantrum about not getting his way all the time. His first wife ran out on him, he took over Mine to help her out, without any expectation of having an intimate marital relationship with her, and then he realizes he should give her up for her sake. There is a ton of suffering on his side. Sinan acts as if only he has suffered, and uses it as a justification for hurting others. He is a self-serving person and would make a rotten husband for anyone, unless he were to grow up and become less selfish. All his romantic ideals are just that, fiction, and not real life. This in real life is why couples who marry to early frequently break up later, when they are grown and realize what makes someone a good husband or wife. Love is not a feeling, it is a decision, and is expressed in action. Sinan talks all the time about his “dreams” they had to gather. That’s all well in its place, but it isn’t the stuff of real life. Moral character is far more important in lasting marital happiness, and it requires self-sacrifice.

  9. Hello there. I live in the United States and I love watching Turkish movies and tv dramas. What I noticed is, there is not a whole lot of affections going on with characters. Is this a traditional thing, not to kiss or heavy petting when the characters need to be emotionally romantic. This is so frustrating becos they only kiss the forehead or the cheeks…..why not get into the kiss and make it real because that is the reality of any situation when it comes to emotionally affectionate. This is my one complain becos I am watching tv and yelling at the same time saying to the characters, what are you waiting for, go hug the girl and kiss her now!!!

  10. Here’s my theory if season 2 doesn’t air.
    Mine doesn’t marry Timur because his wife showed up. And Sinan’s mom takes him to the hospital and he survives. And when Mine comes to know about Sinan’s condition, she realises how much she still loves him and goes back to him. And now Mine lives happily with Sinan and their kid, Hasan.
    Timur, on the other hand, gets back with his wife. And they live happily with their daughter.
    And the person to shoot Sinan was probably the boy who wanted to take revenge. And now he’s in jail.
    THE END 🙂

  11. I don’t think Timur shot Sinan. The hand holding the gun did not look like his hand. Could be Deryn. Also, how would he know Sinan was walking that way at that time. Someone was lying in wait.

  12. I like Tukish movies/tv shows. Not happy with ending.of this show, seems incomplete. Hopefully there’s Season 2. Like actors, Timur, Mine, Sinan, Hasan etc.
    I think Timur is handsome, a good match for Mine, who matured so beautifully, especially after baby born.
    My guess, who shot Sinan? 1st) Timur, since he had to do something & left wedding for 1/2 hr. 2) Denir, for revenge.

  13. Where is season 2. Cannot leave hanging like this

    • No season 2. The series ended in 2012, five years ago. There’s no point contacting Netflix for episodes that do not exist. Go to Wikipedia Turkish version and check it out.

  14. Did Timor go to visit a dying Bala in a private hospice? There was something fishy about her recovery and she was not at the wedding.

  15. Loved this movie except for the unfinished ending!!! Need to have a second season to finish this. There are so many things left unfinished. Who shot Sinah, why did Timur’s wife show up? She was suppose to be dead. Did Mine mother except the purposal.

  16. I loved this movie but very disappointed in the ending – have also noticed that these Turkish
    movies have only 1 season and never end the story, good or bad it must end.

    I wanted Mine to marry Sinan, they belonged together no matter what. Timur was very
    overbearing, ugly, a liar, evil and was obsessed with Mine, it wasn’t love, she was an object.
    Timur would do everything evil to tarnish Mine’s and Sinan’s love for each other.

    All the Turkish movies I have watched have the girl going back and forth between two
    lovers. I really was getting disgusted with Mine because she was always defending
    Timur saying “well he was there when Hasan was born” so what, so was her family.
    Timur made sure he overpowered Mine by playing like a father to Hasan while leaving
    his own daughter on the outside looking in.

    Babies minds are like sponges, they will mimic whatever they hear from adults and papa
    was one of them. Mine should have made sure to have Hasan call Timur Uncle and shown
    pictures of his real dad.

    I believe Timur shot Sinan because he wanted it all, the bride and her son and he also knew
    that Sinan would have visiting rights and that he could not live with. Plus the producers
    made sure they left a clue in everyone’s mind that Timur shot Sinan by showing him leaving
    the wedding and then driving real fast to get back to the wedding,

    No doubt in my mind Timur did it – I wish they would show where Sinan survives and they
    put Timur in jail forever. This would make me very, very happy.

    • Seems like it only you and me who saw that bit! I still think he is a pervert and a horrible man. What he done wasn’t love and I can’t see how others find it acceptable and attractive.

      His nasty manipulative actions was disgusting, he had ever change of acting as an older man and do the right thing and Mine ended up with the being in Captivity syndrome, sticking up for the perv all the time while expecting Sinan to be patient and understanding.

      Understand that another man playing daddy to my son who has no idea who or what I am and I couldn’t touch him without this nasty ass old man being in my face.

      Sinan owed him nothing and he killing himself over another man’s child while neglecting his own and one can tell he always got his own way, I always suspected he done something to his daughter’ Mother because of the way he was.

      Show leave me feeling disgusting and I skipped and fast forward a lot especially the ones with the perv in it.

      Why would love not win but crimes and wrongs wins

  17. Season 2 please!!! You can’t have his be the end

  18. End very dissapontted and very inconclusive I love to watch
    Turkish show. But this is another one with very bad end
    Sentid and Sura is too but at least is a real story. The girl I loved is a show with not real story. When I watch a show I expected at least to finish the story even if that finish bad
    Who killed Sinan? Is he dead? Why Timur’s wife appear. Supposition she was dead? Amine just finish mad? Edarch ‘ s
    Child is a girl? That was more inconclusive love story
    Seriously. There is not a season 2 ? Can believe.

  19. You guys, I could be wrong but I swear Timur was talking to Bala and said his first wife died…I guess I misunderstood. So was it his first wife that was calling Merve and Timur? Why would Timur leave on his wedding day to run an errand..so dumb. I feel like the producers thought they’d be renewed for another season and then they didn’t get funded or something because nothing got tied up nicely, everyone was left without a nice tie up. I feel so bad, I loved watching and getting attached to the show only to get no joy at the end. I don’t think they’ll do a season 2. Hassan is now in Intersection …which if you haven’t watched yet…go now! So are some of the other actors involved in other shows. So sad we won’t get a tidy ending.

  20. Is there a season 2?? Surely after all these hours I spent watching the girl I loved it ends this way???? No way

  21. Hopefully The Girl I Loved has a second season on Netflix. I must know who shot Sinan

  22. Hopefully there is a season 2 so that we will know who shot Sinah.. The Girl I Loved has great actors and writers.

  23. I went on a website and bought the book to finish out there life. Unbelievable that Seyit committed suicide.. He was such a strong man.

  24. I so totally agree with you about Mine and Timur…and Sinan was too hot headed. Timur gave Mine such peace and true love. So glad his daughter turned around.

  25. have you seen Kurt Seyit and Sura … true story…I think it was the best love story ….

  26. Is there a second season for the Girl I Loved?

  27. Sheridan Robinson

    oh, I was trying to see if episode 79 (I watched on Netflix) was the end and it seems that it is, so disappointed. They should do another season!!! It did not seem like a good ending at all, too many questions left unanswered!

  28. Sjabvon Sass Venter

    Is that it?! Surely ep 79 cant be how it ends… Really disappointed with the ending. Really good series though, with phenomenal acting.

  29. Hello Ninette, yes i did and read book as well 🙂

  30. It’s too bad this series ended on it’s 79th episode. I am sure the producer/s didn’t plan for it to end where it did.Surely something is detaining the continuation or conflict happened that brought everything to a halt. But I do agree with everyone…I got hooked and want to see ‘The Girl I loved’ to the end! BRAVO to the amazing Turkish actors! I love that there are no explicit sexual scenes, barely kissing….proving that a show can be captivatingly powerful without it.

  31. Someone in the comments said there is a 96th episode

  32. Yasim so there is a Season 2? I wrote to Netflix and they said they are going to look into it

  33. How do you know it was the last one? Thats really stupid isnt it. Yes I agree the killers could have been them even Temir

  34. Yes Lulu I’m with you it seems why would he leave the wedding to go out suddenly? Also that other orphaned kid might have done it but why? OR that lady that wanted revenge on him. How will we ever know?

  35. I agree with you Gorana 🙂 I cant believe it. Have you watch Seyit ve Sura one? That is the same but true story at least

  36. I cant believe it ended like this! Where is season 2?

  37. I’ve lost a lot of sleep and tears over The Girl I Loved and to think that is the way the show ended is crazy. I’m captivated by Turkish soaps, hopefully Netflix will continue showing them. Season 2?
    And I loved the wedding gown, and Mine’s wardrobe….

  38. I just finished to watch this beautiful drama on Netflix . I was very upset with the ending. I did not know that they censured Tv show and Movies that are politically incorrect according to them.

  39. I watched this on Netflix – all 79 episodes – and like so many others was really disappointed with the inconclusive ending. I spent a couple of days searching the internet for a second series and finally came across a review which said that unfortunately the show had been axed in Turkey. The reviewer stated that this would have been due to either the show not being popular enough there (the market is very competitive or because it was too political with the character of Mine’s auntie. Just wish Netflix would accompany programs discontinued mid story with a warning!

  40. So disappointed with the very untidy ending. Thought perhaps there might be a follow up? Cliffhangers are not good unless you know everything will be resolved. We all like a good ending. Thought the themes explored in the show handled really compassionately, especially that of the character Emine and her mental illness. Believable characters. Scenes of Istanbul brilliant.

  41. I was completely captivated by this show. A lot of the drama could have been avoided or cut short. I skipped a lot towards the end.. Was disappointed with the ending and wanted more… Also did not feel the chemistry between Timur and Mine. Although Timur is such a fantastic actor and so were a lot of the others. I started watching Turkish serials on Netlifx starting with Calikusu with the help of subtitles. Seems they like such endings.. sad and complicated endings. Will watch more of Bulent Inal, am such a fan!!

  42. This show had me captivated I couldn’t wait to get home and watch it. There were parts that just had me irritated that I skipped through but all in all very good, I think Derin shot Sinah and I loved that Mine and Turah finally got together because Sinah was too hot headed but did not like that it ended with uncertainty not knowing if there will be a continuation.

  43. I am disappointed … I don’t know if Sinan died and whether Timur killed him . Timur has a wife, didn’t trust him throughout the movie, he was the bad guy and he wins at the end??? crap

    • Same thing I was asking, why did Sinan had to suffer so badly not once did he had a chance at happiness even after all he done.

      The man who done so many wrong turns out getting everything and the one who done nothing wrong but fall in love got punished.

      Do they not believe in love and honesty in Turkey is this a portrait of Turkish culture with older men doing anything to be with younger girls.

      Mine mum had never once supported her daughters my gosh she is the worst mother I have ever seen in a show.

  44. Is the 79 episode the last one of The girl I loved very disappointed at ending really enjoy the show. Please reply.

  45. How we can find out you write all this it’s non-certain

  46. So stupid, my 3rd Turkish show that i am watching and has a very negative ending.. what he hell? I think i am done watching this crap…

    • This is my first and last not that much time to watch a show that only leaving you angry and that wrong doing it the way to win!

      Not one person that done anything wrong got punished but all the kind loving people got punished and pain.

      How could one person be the one constantly be treated so badly it’s like the show was punishing Sinan for being born and fell in love.

      He gave up everything and still ended up with nothing and the evil perv done everything nasty and wrong still wins. How sick and disgusting

  47. Not happy with the ending. Why did Sinah have to suffer so much? Temir did a lot of bad things to keep Sinah and Mine apart but is somehow still portrayed as being a good guy. Why was it so hard for them to understand Sinah’s point of view? He had 2.5 years stolen from him when it comes to his son yet no one seems to have sympathy for him. Don’t get it.

  48. Do they not believe in happy endings in Turkey? Every single TV show I’ve watched has ended badly. How did Merve’s mom come back from the dead? I’m assuming either Derin or Bekir shot Sinan? On Netflix, episode 79 was the last one.

    • No I don’t think they do as I cannot see why Sinan had to suffer that much even if they didn’t want him to end up with Mine who I ended up disliking very much.

      They could have left him have a good relationship as a young father to his son

      Not even the girl in the kidnapping had the amount of pain and suffering Sinan had. Just horrible show only believe in hate and wrong doing

  49. How and where can i watch the episodes

  50. could not understand why the story is left incomplete ? so many unanswered questions eg: where did Taimur go just before the wedding; who shot Sinan? what happens with the return of Timur’s wife ? Wasn’t she supposed to be dead? Over here in Pakistan they are calling the 96th episode as the last episode but surely it is not?

    • Dizide aşk değil aşk acısı,aşk ızdırabı,insan ruhunu nasıl yıpratıp,hayatı cemennehe e7evirdiği işleniyor.sakın aşık olmayın mesajı veriyor.Gidişata bakılırsa yani senaristlerin ne yapacağı hakkında tahminim.Feriha yı f6ldfcrecekler 2.bf6lfcmde Feriha ile Emirin ilk yakınlaştıkları hastane bahe7esindeki bankta Emir oturacak f6yle bitecek.Umarım yine bankta biter ama Feriha f6lmez.
