The entirety of act two was little more than a very well written, but ultimately clever distraction.
So if you’ve seen the movie, one of two issues is likely to confuse you. You’re either among the viewers that got lost somewhere in the second act or are in the camp that is wondering what the end actually means. If you are a fan of Chris Nolan’s work, then the end would not have been unexpected. That’s his signature style. Even so, the end of the film requires explanation.

“Set a course for awesome – maximum warp. The summer has officially begun.”
The Science Fiction hall of fame officially has another inductee. J.J.
