Quick X delivered the pulse-racing motion, attractive automobiles, bonkers plot twists, and star-stuffed ensemble that Quick & Livid followers have come to demand from this intense franchise. But it surely additionally dealt us an ending stacked with cliffhangers.

Who lived? Who died? Who could be coming again for the — but untitled — Quick & Livid 11

Let’s drive deep into spoiler territory to seek out solutions to Quick X‘s most urgent questions. 


‘Quick X’ evaluation: How do you prime blasting a automobile into house? Two phrases: Jason Momoa. 

What occurred in Quick X

Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his massive, car-loving household had been threatened by the nihilistic fashionista Dante Reyes (Jason Momoa, being the most within the biggest means). You would possibly suppose Dante is new to the escapades of the Toretto clan, however Quick X‘s opening sequence ushers us all again to Quick 5 for a revealing retcon.

Bear in mind when Dom and his crew hauled a big secure out of a Rio de Janeiro police station, then dragged it by way of the streets, inflicting huge collateral harm, extremely no civilian casualties, and epic motion spectacle? Effectively, that heisted vault belonged to Quick 5 villain Hernan Reyes (Joaquin de Almeida), a criminal offense boss who had the Brazilian metropolis within the palm of his bloody hand. Within the movie’s finale, he’d not solely misplaced his cash to Dom, but additionally his life to cowboy cop Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson). Nonetheless, Quick X reveals that forward of his loss of life, Hernan had tasked his violent however devoted son Dante to deliver Dom’s household down.

Killing them isn’t sufficient. Dying is a mercy. The Reyes means is to make their enemies undergo. So, Dante destroys the household’s repute by framing Dom, Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Roman (Tyrese Gibson), Tej (Chris “Ludacris” Bridges), Han (Sung Kang), and Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel) along with his terrorist bombing of Rome.

From there, Dante separates Dom from his household, getting Letty locked up in an Company black website (in Antarctica!) and pitching the remainder of the Rome crew actually underground (into the sewers, en path to London). In the meantime, Dom’s siblings Mia (Jordana Brewster) and Jakob (John Cena) rush to maintain their nephew Little Brian (Leo Abelo Perry), aka Little B, out of the arms of Dante and The Company, as nobody could be trusted outdoors the household. 

What occurs to Mia?

After Mia battles a bunch of invading brokers at Dom’s longtime Los Angeles house, she places Little B within the care of Uncle Jakob. From there, she’s out of Quick X, presumably going to verify in on her offscreen household, which incorporates Brian O’Conner (beforehand performed by the late Paul Walker) and their youngsters. 

Is Brian O’Conner in Quick X

Nope. In contrast to in Livid 7 and F9, there aren’t any digicam tips or physique doubles bringing Brian into this journey. As an alternative, very like the Duke on Bridgerton, Brian is alive and effectively — simply effectively away from the motion.

Plotwise, followers would possibly assume that to guard their household, Brian has used his former FBI expertise to make certain the children are firmly off the grid, effectively out of Dante’s grasp and even the view of the surveillance tech God’s Eye.(opens in a brand new tab)

The place’s Abuelita Toretto?

Shortly after Quick X introduces Rita Moreno as Dom’s adoring grandmother, the character vanishes from the film. She too appears to have discovered a spot outdoors of Dante’s imaginative and prescient for devastation — for now, anyway.

Possibly Mia picked her up and high-tailed it to security? Possibly we’ll see all of them reunited in Quick & Livid 11? Right here’s hoping.

Is Jakob Toretto lifeless?

After serving as a scowling villain to his long-lost brother in F9, Jakob has resurfaced as a trusted uncle within the Toretto household. He joins the battle to guard Little B, preventing assailants along with his sister Mia, then spiriting the child out of his lavatory hiding place (actual speak: How do the Torettos NOT have a panic room?!) and into his underwhelming however serviceable automobile. It’s outfitted with a tape deck for jamming out along with his nephew, and a glider disguised as a kayak that enables him to verify it as baggage on an airline with out incident. 

Uncle Jakob and Little B have a terrific facet plot, peppered with nice escapes and bonding over Marky Mark and The Funky Bunch’s “Good Vibrations.” However as soon as Dante will get the child in his clutches, Jakob — whose cannon automobile’s fuel tank has been compromised — sacrifices himself in a kamikaze mission, barreling into approaching enemies and clearing a path for Dom to rescue the boy.

Now, the explosion of this pile-up is fairly huge. And — is usually the case on this franchise — the hero’s corpse just isn’t proven post-kablooey. Tragic music implies he’s lifeless and gone. However contemplate the returns of Han, Letty, and — effectively —  who. Don’t rely Jakob out for no matter would possibly come subsequent. 

What occurs to Letty and Cipher?

Because of some assist from The Company’s insurgent, Tess (Brie Larson), Letty is chucked into the black website’s infirmary, the place she reluctantly groups up with Dom’s enemy, Cipher (Charlize Theron). After a brutal brawl, this duo snowsuits as much as trek throughout a seemingly countless terrain of ice and chilly to a cliff, the place —at film’s finish — a submarine surfaces with a well-recognized face aboard. (We’ll get there.)

Now, what does this imply for the subsequent movie? Presumably that Letty, who has well-earned belief points, is poised to battle again towards Dante’s villainy with a foe she totally loathes. It needs to be enjoyable, as Theron’s smirk and savage sense of line supply brings zing when she says issues like, “The enemy of my enemy is you.”

That devilish Dante isn’t simply good at tearing households aside. Take a look at him bringing folks collectively (to kill him)!

What occurs to Tess and Isabel?

These two even have so much in widespread!

Each new additions are associated to beforehand established characters. Tess (Brie Larson) is the daughter of Mr. No one (Kurt Russell), a former Company chief who’s gone underground and first seems in Livid 7. Isabel (Daniela Melchior) is the youthful sister of Elena Neves (Elsa Pataky), who was launched in Quick 5 however killed by Cipher in Destiny of the Livid — after she bore Dom’s son, Little B.

In Quick X, each ladies make mates with the Torettos, sharing a beer or tear respectively. Then, they get drawn right into a showdown on a bridge, tying Dante and Dom again to the place they met (as the previous notes with a maniacal whimsy). There, each ladies stroll away, limping however alive.

These women sit out the climax. Nonetheless, one can shoot, and the opposite can drive. So count on to see them come again for extra motion. 

The place did Shaw go?

After paying off the mid-credit F9 scene that confirmed Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) roughly reconnecting with Han (Sung Kang), a person he’s as soon as practically murdered, the British unhealthy boy bought right into a purple sports activities automobile and…set off to elements unknown.

Presumably, he’s out to save lots of his mom, Queenie (Helen Mirren), as Dante is threatening the pricey ones of Dom’s crew. So, it appears sure that once we decide again up with him within the presumed sequel, he’ll be battling for his mum the way in which he did for that child in Destiny of the Livid,(opens in a brand new tab) relentlessly and with loads of model. And perhaps Queenie will get some punches in, too? 

Did Han, Ramsey, Tej, and Roman die in that airplane crash?

No. I imply, that’s not been confirmed formally. However let’s take into consideration what we noticed. The crew was planning to swoosh in and save Dom and Little B from their perilous place on prime that dam. Then, Dante intervenes, and increase! Their airplane is bombed, and it appears to crash off within the distance. Now, in lots of an motion film that may imply loss of life was fairly doable. However that is the Quick fam. Dying scenes are sometimes not what they appear. 

Since Livid 7, Ramsey has change into an appreciated member of the crew, bantering with Tej — when he’s not bickering with Roman. All three of them are beloved by followers, so if they had been going to be bombed out of this franchise, it will be in a second extra extended and emotionally devastating. Like when Han was blown up in Tokyo Drift or when Gisele slo-mo fell to her loss of life in Quick & Livid 6. Talking of…

Will Han and Gisele reunite?

They rattling effectively higher! Han can’t have died in that airplane, as a result of no Quick screenwriter would dare tempt followers with the return of Gisele solely to kill him off earlier than their romance might reignite!

The chemistry between Sung Kang and Gal Gadot has been electrifying since their flirtations in Quick 5. Arguably, their romance may need even been extra enthralling to followers as a result of we knew Han was doomed to die in Tokyo, as we noticed within the launched out-of-sequence Tokyo Drift. So, after they journey off into the sundown in Quick 5,(opens in a brand new tab) and he suggests Madrid as a substitute of Japan’s capital, audiences roared with pleasure at their new favourite ship! However then got here Quick & Livid 6, which appeared to kill off Gisele. 

There was a darkish interval (Quick 7-8), the place this love story appeared as lifeless as its lovers. However then Han was resurrected in F9, and now Gisele has risen like a phoenix driving a submarine by way of Antarctica. Unbelievable! Inconceivable! WHO CARES!? 

Han was simply starting to get on the relationship apps. He was prepared to like once more, and now Gisele goes to stroll again into his life as casually as he strolled into the den of his sworn enemy Shaw? The DRAMA! THE MUSIC PUMPING!(opens in a brand new tab) THE KISS!

Quick 11 (or no matter they’ll name it) higher give us a steamy reunion between these two VERY ALIVE lovers, or we riot. 

Are Dom and Little Brian going to die?

I imply, on the one hand, no means. On the opposite, Vin Diesel has teased that the subsequent sequel would be the final(opens in a brand new tab). And killing Dom can be one hell of a strategy to make that so.

Having mentioned that, there’s no means that Dom and his son will probably be drowned by that exploding dam. How will they get out? No clue. However have you ever seen what this man survives? In a world by which two helicopters hooked to a rushing automobile can be utilized as a weapon towards kidnapping, by no means underestimate Dom. 

Did Dante win?

Effectively, the sport’s not over. Take into account the conclusion of Quick X as halftime.

However the man’s bought so much going for him. For one factor, he has Dom in between a rock and a wall of water. He’s flung the crew across the globe in numerous crises and crashes — and stolen their cash to chop them off from simple support.

Dante has nothing to lose, as the one factor he cares about is mayhem and manicures. He’s bought a mole on his facet in Aimes (Alan Richtson), which explains why The Company has been such a pest this go ’spherical, and he’s overtly baiting Hobbs on the finish of the movie. However biggest of all — for Dante and us — he’s survived his first Quick film, completely poised for a sequel.

As mentioned in our evaluation, Momoa has made Dante into a particular villain. In his angle, apparel, and private philosophy, he’s all the things Dom just isn’t. Flamboyant, willfully lethal, and decided to destroy the legacy that’s been constructed for 20 years and counting. Because the Quick franchise threatens to come back to an finish, this villain questions what sort of mark this crew can go away behind. Because of this a sequel the place they cut back him to a mark on the pavement may very well be their most satisfying victory but. 

Publish credit score defined: Will Hobbs come again for Quick & Livid 11?

The mid-credit guarantees the return of Dwayne Johnson, regardless of his reported feud(opens in a brand new tab) with Quick & Livid main man, Vin Diesel. Within the scene, the massively muscle undercover agent barges into Dante’s surveillance room, the place he learns he’s part of this menace’s grasp plan.

And it solely is smart. In spite of everything, his Luke Hobbs is the one who fatally shot Dante’s dad. If Dante practically blew up the Vatican simply to raze the repute of the man who stole from his father, what would possibly he have deliberate for the person who killed the crime lord patriarch?

Pitting Hobbs, Dom, and all surviving (and resurrected) fam towards this risky villain ought to make Quick & Livid exit with its greatest bang but.

Quick X is now in theaters.
