There are a lot of things we'll never know about Black Mirror: Bandersnatch. How many endings are there really, for example? How much of its content is impossible to find? And is everyone destined to be miserable?
One thing we do now know, thanks to an unusual move by Netflix, is which of the main Bandersnatch endings was the least popular with viewers.
Although sticking to its sacred rule of keeping audience numbers quiet, Netflix has confirmed that one of the less depressing conclusions was the path least travelled.
Shortly after Netflix UK revealed that British viewers were less likely to "throw tea" than their non-British counterparts, the streaming service dropped a bombshell on Twitter.
"Out of the 5 main endings, the one where Stefan goes on the train with his mum *fights tears* was the path least travelled," the platform's sci-fi contingent explained.

And it's even more difficult to change the past.

What a morbid bunch we are. Is it more surprising than Frosties winning over Sugar Puffs, though? Probably not.

While Netflix is happy to give us an insight into exactly how we ruined Stefan's life, it's less keen on sharing the viewing figures of the Choose Your Own Adventure-style event.
Fortunately, Black Mirror co-creator Charlie Brooker is perfectly happy about that, thank you very much, calling the move "liberating".
"I find it quite liberating that they don't tell us numbers, or they don't publish numbers. It's something that's sort of fairly irrelevant in the grand scheme of things," he argued.
"I think it's quite good when you're making things to not really worry about that aspect."
Black Mirror season 1-4 and Black Mirror: Bandersnatch are available to stream on Netflix now.
