Fast & Furious 9 ending explained: Who is that at the end?
Dom (Vin Diesel) and his familia are back to save the world again in Fast & Furious 9, although this time the threat is closer to home.
Jakob Toretto (John Cena) – the previously-unheard-of Toretto sibling – is after Project Aries, a weapon “so dangerous it shouldn’t exist for another half-century”, according to Cipher (Charlize Theron) who may be helping Jakob in his quest.
It’s the setup for another round of outrageous stunts that, this time, also sees the series head to space. Can Dom and his crew save the day and where has Jakob been all of these years without Dom mentioning it?
We’re about to delve into the twists and turns of Fast & Furious 9, including its ending and that surprise return, to explain all. So if you haven’t seen the movie yet, look away now as major spoilers await.
We don’t see who’s driving it, but Fast & Furiousfans will know instantly who it is as there’s only one character in the entire series to drive such a car: Paul Walker’s Brian O’Conner.
This touching moment was actually revealed in the Super Bowl TV spot for the movie, but we didn’t know it was going to be the final shot. It’s likely just there to show that Brian is still around in this series, but could lead to a bigger role in Fast & Furious 10.
Paul Walker’s brothers Cody and Caleb stepped in to finish filming on Fast & Furious 7, so if Brian was going to be seen in the two-movie finale, that’s likely the route they’ll go.
We’d hope it wouldn’t be more than a cameo though as it’s hard to see that CGI trickery working throughout an entire movie. For now, this heartwarming nod will satisfy fans though until we find out the plan for the next two movies.
