Akin to the show’s haunting holiday special, “White Christmas,” “Black Museum” plays out in a nightmarish triptych, massaging three seemingly disparate stories into a single narrative. It’s a victory, and an ending that defies the natural biology of the series—and in being so, it’s a form of reparation not everyone will understand.
