The plane returns to the Five Lakes airstrip, with Vincent waking Leo up. After landing, they exit the plane only for the police to surround them. As the two are held at gunpoint, the Police Chief congratulates Vincent on his job and hands him a gun to aim at Leo, revealing himself to be an undercover police officer, having been assigned to act as an inmate to gain Leo's trust and get his help in hunting down Harvey. It is also revealed that the buyer who was killed by Harvey was in fact Vincent's brother, Gary Moretti.

It flashes back to the day of the failed deal, where Vincent and a few police officers are listening in on the deal from Gary, who was also a police officer undercover. After hearing gunshots, the police officers rush to the scene only to find a dead Gary and an unconscious Leo, having been hit by Harvey's car. As the police restrain Leo, Vincent cradles his brother's body.

In the present day, Leo looks at Vincent in shock about the discovery. In surprise, Leo takes Vincent hostage and brings him to a car, where they enter a high-speed car pursuit, with this ending after Leo accidentally crashes off a bridge into a canal.

Canal Chase

Leo steals a boat, with Vincent being picked up by Emily, resulting in a dangerous pursuit along the canal. Vincent eventually damages Leo's boat up to the point where Leo loses control and jumps off before it speeds up a ramp and crashes into some oil tankers. Vincent and Emily spot Leo fleeing into a nearby warehouse factory, with the two landing and rushing in after him.

Face Off

The two officers split up, with Leo ambushing Emily, taking her gun and ordering her to leave, not wanting to harm her as the fight was between him and Vincent. After some reluctance, Emily leaves.

Vincent calls Leo out, which they face each other in separate offices overlooking a production room, separated by a gap. Leo is clearly hurt by Vincent's betrayal, with the latter expressing how he understands the Leo is disappointed, but he had no choice and tries to convince Leo to give himself up and he will talk to the police captain to reduce his sentence. Leo refuses, stating that he is a dead man. Vincent tries to get Leo to think about Alex, but Leo demands for him to shut up and orders him not to mention his name. He then attempts to shoot Vincent, but fails due to the bulletproof glass, threatening that Vincent is a dead man, with the two men going separate ways as they prepare to attack each other.

A Way Out

The two men engage in a large gunfight, with one gaining an advantage and the other retreating to a new room. After doing this enough times, one is cornered by the other and seems like things were going to end before one tackles the other out of a window, ending up on the roof of the facility.

After one last tiring gunfight, the two men begin to beat each other up after removing their bulletproof vests. After enough beatings, the two men notice a gun near a platform edge, with the two deciding to go for it. The two then desperately crawl to the gun to shoot the other with it. What happens next will depend who reaches the gun first:

  • Leo shoots Vincent - If Leo reaches the gun first, he aims it at Vincent's chest and pulls the trigger, with Vincent being mortally wounded from the bullet. He then rests against a metal pole and reaches into his pocket for his letter to his wife, Carol. He then requests Leo to take it to her. Leo silently takes the letter as the two men look at each other in silence as their last moment together as friends. Vincent then peacefully succumbs to his gunshot wound and dies, with Leo walking off and leaving the factory.
  • Vincent shoots Leo - If Vincent reaches the gun first, he aims it at Leo's chest and pulls the trigger, with Leo being mortally wounded from the bullet. He then rests against a metal pole and looks at Vincent. The two then extend their hands and have one last firm handshake as a final moment of friendship. After this, Leo peacefully succumbs to his gunshot wound and dies, with Vincent walking off and leaving the factory.

Epilogue

What happens next depends on who died and who survived:

  • Leo survives - Sometime after the incident, Leo arrives outside of Carol's house and prepares to deliver the letter. He reaches for the doorbell, but hesitates. He then sets the letter down and rings the doorbell as he quickly retreats back to his car. Carol answers and finds the letter while carrying her and Vincent's daughter, Julie. Leo watches in a mirror and then eventually leaves. He goes to his family's motel room to pick them up so they can leave town for good. While the Caruso's leave town, Vincent's funeral was occuring, with him being honored by his co-workers, with a mourning Carol crying as she is being comforted by an officer. Leo and Linda then hold hands as they leave town to start a new life.
  • Vincent survives - Sometime after the incident, Vincent goes to Linda's trailer to personally inform her of Leo's demise. Shocked and devastated, Linda forces Vincent outside and breaks down crying, with a concerning Alex rushing into the trailer to investigate. Vincent leaves and returns to Carol's house, where he reconciles with Carol at long last and shows her his resignation forms, having finally quit the police force. Carol tells Vincent that their daughter's name is Julie, which Vincent comments that it is a beautiful name. Carol then invites Vincent inside, which he accepts. Meanwhile, Linda and Alex visit Leo's "grave".
