How did the 1st season of the series “Fortune Teller” end?

Police Major Alexey Potapov ( Mikhail Porechenkov ) is accustomed to relying on practical experience and a rational approach in his work. Lyudmila’s talent surprises him, but he intends to investigate the case on his own, without resorting to “otherworldly forces.” Still, intuition tells the man that he should listen to the tips of his new colleague and try to put them together into a single picture. Meanwhile, the main character wants to find the criminal and begins her own investigation.


When the killer is found and arrested, Lucy returns home. However, she soon has to return: the police ask for help, since they are unable to independently track down the intruder who kidnapped the granddaughter of the head of the department. Law enforcement officers are following the wrong trail. Potapov is outraged by the presence of a woman who does not understand anything about the work of investigators, but in the end Lyusya helps the police find the right path.

Over time, the heroine learns to control her visions, and the clues become clearer. The bosses begin to doubt her subordinate’s superpowers, but she again helps uncover the trail of the intruders. As a result, thanks to her gift, tragedy was avoided. Potapov finally understands that Nekrasova can help in the investigation of complex cases. After this, the heroine is offered a job at the police department.

On her first day of work, the heroine is ready to begin a new investigation, but Potapov still believes that a “fortune teller” has no place in the department, and his fiancée, criminologist Marina ( Yana Krainova ), is sure that Lyusya is vying for her place. When detectives detain another criminal, the heroine is the only one who doubts his guilt. Potapov has to agree with the woman, as the evidence crumbles.


Lyudmila’s abilities lead to the fact that she begins to see tragedies that will soon happen to people strangers to her. However, it is impossible to help them, and this brings suffering to the heroine, so she wants to return to a “normal” life and leave the police. Suddenly Potapov realizes that he is not ready to let her go.

Lucy’s gift helps find a clue in a new case, and Potapov is accused of replacing evidence stored in his safe and is arrested. Before this, the investigator tried to find out the circumstances of the crime committed back in the 90s, when his father died. Thanks to the efforts of a psychic, the charges against his colleague are dropped, but the man realizes that he faces even bigger problems in the future.

Therefore, the heroine loses her job and begins her own investigation, eventually managing to get on the trail of the killers. In the finale, she returns to the police, but is unable to forgive Potapov for his suspicions. Later it turns out that the reasons for this man’s behavior are not so obvious. Season 1 of the series “Fortune Teller” ends with Lyudmila agreeing to Maxim’s offer to fly to Paris.

Marina continues to plot, and Potapov becomes an object of surveillance. During the new investigation, the man manages to make inquiries about a certain person named Mikhail Spassky, whom he personally does not know. It turns out that it was he who organized the surveillance of Potapov. Soon the main character realizes that an unknown man is also watching her. She is scared and asks her friend Marta to find out who Spassky is. The information received turns out to be quite interesting.

The main characters no longer hide their feelings for each other. Marina, meanwhile, is going to get her rival fired, believing that Potapov will come into conflict with Korablev and he will get rid of this couple. However, the situation is changing, and now Marina and Lyuda are forced to act together. Potapov may become a victim of a new crime, and the man’s future fate depends on the coordinated actions of his rivals. As a result, Marina still manages to provoke a quarrel between the major and the fortune teller.

Later, the main character decides to find ways to reconcile, but sees Alexei and Marina together and writes a letter of resignation. But then it turns out that there was no betrayal. Moreover, Marina needs Lyudmila’s help in investigating a case related to her friend Vika and a dangerous maniac. In the next episode, the detective and the fortune teller enter into an open conflict: each of the heroes is confident that he is right and does not intend to give in. Meanwhile, journalist Helen ( Anna Zaikova ) is looking for dirt on Korablev.

Helen becomes a victim of kidnappers, Lyusya sees her at a fresh grave, and Alexey becomes an eyewitness to Spassky’s murder. Major Potapov and Mikhail Ignatievich are under suspicion. Finding the killer is not an easy task, as he is one step ahead of the police. In the end, Lyuda accepts Alexei’s offer to live together, but agrees to move after the general’s anniversary celebration. At the celebration, the clairvoyant realizes with horror that she initially misinterpreted an old dream: Potapov will become a victim not on the wedding day, but precisely at this event.

Lyudmila is wounded and ends up in the hospital. Marina puts forward the version that the target was the fortune teller, and not the major, so the victim is still in danger. The series “Fortune Teller” ends with the tragedy being prevented and the criminal being eliminated. However, the name of the customer remained secret. In the finale, Potapov realizes that the traitor works in their department and plans to find out his identity.
