Fast & Furious 6 Ending & Mid-Credits Scene Explained


Fast & Furious 6 successfully wraps up conflicts and sets up the next movie with a satisfying ending and mid-credits scene. Dom and his crew team up to defeat Owen Shaw and retrieve the computer chip, culminating in an intense fight scene. The movie explores the importance of family as characters like Letty are reminded of its power and Dom and Elena end their relationship for Dom to be with Letty.

Following the critical and financial success of the previous entry, Fast & Furious 6 had a lot to live up to, and it mostly succeeded, especially in the ending and mid-credits scenes, which not only satisfyingly wrapped up the film’s conflicts but also perfectly set up the events for the seventh Fast & Furious movie. Directed by Justin Lin, Fast and Furious 6 takes place years after Dominic “Dom” Torreto (Vin Diesel) and his crew successfully pulled off the bank heist in Brazil in Fast Five. The crew have gone their separate ways and everyone seems to be doing well.

However, Dom and his team are forced back into the game when Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) informs Dom that a rogue British agent named Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) plans on making a device called “Nightshade”, which has the power to shut off all power in a country. Hobbs asks Dom for help in exchange for a pardon for himself and his crew, which he accepts. However, the mission turns personal as Dom discovers that his late wife, Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez) is still alive and working for Shaw. Everything comes together for a thrilling ending worthy of the Fast & Furious franchise.

Owen and his team attack a military convoy as it contains a computer chip that he needs to finish constructing “Nightshade”. While Dom and his crew are unsuccessful in stopping Owen, they convince Letty to join their side and betray Shaw. With their hands on the computer chip, Shaw and his band of mercenaries board a moving plane to flee the country but are prevented from doing so after Dom and his crew catch up to them and use the weight of their cars to prevent the plane from taking off.

Letty was thought to be killed by an explosion in Fast & Furious, but actually survived and was sent to a hospital days later. Shaw went to the hospital to kill her, but when he discovered that she had amnesia, he instead brought her on to his team.

Dom and Luke use this opportunity to board the plane, which leads to one of the best fight scenes in the Fast & Furious franchise in which they team up to fight and defeat Owen and his henchman, Klaus (Kim Kold). After Dom and Luke successfully win their over-the-top fistfight, they take the computer chip, throw Owen out of the moving plane, which leaves him in critical condition, and then drive out of the plane before it crashes and explodes.

Hobbs Pardons Dom And His Crew

After successfully preventing Owen Shaw from constructing the “Nightshade” device and accomplishing their mission, Dom and his crew return to Los Angeles where they celebrate with a big barbecue party. Luke arrives at the party to tell Dom that he and his team have been pardoned and that the government will no longer be hunting them down. While this scene between Dom and Luke is awkwardly shot and blocked since it was affected by the real-life feud between Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson, it at least did the job of indicating that both two men now have developed mutual respect and set up their partnership in future movies.

Letty and Dom Get Back Together

Despite Letty still being unable to remember anything about her past or her relationship with Dom, she cannot deny the strong connection she feels with the man. Therefore, after completing the mission, Letty and Dom decide to get back together and give their relationship another chance. This makes Dom happy since even after she supposedly died, he never stopped loving her.

Unfortunately, this leaves Dom in an uncomfortable position as he must break up with Elena Neves (Elsa Pataky), a former cop who was first introduced as a member of Hobbs’ team from Fast Five and later entered into a relationship with him after the bank heist in Brazil. Fortunately, Elena holds no grudge or ill will against Dom as she understands that he loves Letty and that he should be with her. This not only makes Dom happy, but it also showcases that even though their relationship is over, they will always remain close to each other.

It is revealed in Fate of the Furious that Elena secretly gave birth to a son whom Dom was not aware of.

Han Decides To Move To Tokyo

After Gisele Yashar (Gal Gadot) sacrifices herself at the end of Fast & Furious 6 to save Han (Sung Kang) from being killed by Adolfson, a member of Shaw’s mercenary team, Han tells his crew members that he will be going to Tokyo. Han and Gisele had talked about wanting to go to Tokyo together before, but with Gisele now having supposedly died, Han feels compelled more than ever to go and fulfill the promise he made to her. While Roman (Tyrese Gibson) and Tej (Chris “Ludacris” Bridges) support Han’s decision, they remind him that no matter where he goes, they’ll always have his back.

Dom And His Crew Say Grace

A barbecue party with chicken and beer that cannot be consumed until someone says grace is a prominent tradition that has been featured in almost every Fast & Furious movie, starting with the very first film. However, what is particularly special about the barbecue dinner in Fast & Furious 6 is that not only is the last scene in the movie, but it also is a moment that is earned. After stopping Owen Shaw’s evil plans and Letty having been reunited with the family, it only makes sense to end this action-packed thrill ride with friends kicking back and enjoying a meal of chicken and Corona.

Deckard Shaw Kills Han In The Mid-Credits

In The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Han was supposedly killed in a car accident, and that moment is played again during the mid-credits scene of Fast & Furious 6. However, it is revealed that Han’s death wasn’t an accident, but an assassination attempt orchestrated by a mysterious man who, after the crash, calls Dom and says “You don’t know me, but you’re about to.” Furious 7 reveals that this mysterious assassin is Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), the brother of Owen Shaw who is out on a revenge quest to kill Dom and his crew after what they did to Owen.

However, just like how Han’s death was retconned in the mid-credits of Fast & Furious 6, it would be retconned again in F9 when it is revealed that Han was not actually killed by Deckard. Instead, with the help of Mr. Nobody (Kurt Russell), Han faked his death and then went into hiding for many years before resurfacing and rejoining Dom’s crew in F9.

The Real Meaning of Fast and Furious 6

While the Fast & Furious franchise has been memed for its comically high use of the word “family”, it does play an important thematic role in these movies, especially Fast & Furious 6. The film is about family because not only are Dom and his crew like a family who support and care for each other throughout the mission, but characters like Letty are reminded of just how powerful the concept of family can be even despite suffering from amnesia, which is why she ultimately rejoins the crew. Overall, family is a driving force both plot-wise and thematically, and the result is a very entertaining action movie.

The 69-Year Story Behind The Fast And Furious Name


The Fast & Furious franchise started with the 2001 movie The Fast and the Furious and went through several major changes in its sequel titles. The title for the original movie was almost different, with options like Race Wars, but the producer fought for The Fast and the Furious.

As the Fast & Furious series has one of the most recognizable franchise names in cinema, some may be curious as to where its origin came from. The multi-billion-dollar franchise started with 2001’s straightforward street racing movie, The Fast and the Furious, but following that, the series went through several major changes, and that was mirrored in the Fast & Furious sequel movie titles. 2 Fast 2 Furious introduced numbered titles, then The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift immediately dropped that format. The fourquel confused things further with the title Fast & Furious, and it only got more confusing from there. However, every title is still a play on the original 2001 title.

The Fast and the Furious came to fruition following a Vibe magazine article called “Racer X”. Universal had the incredible foresight of seeing how popular street racing would become in the 2000s, and the studio quickly grabbed the movie rights to the article. However, while the movie was originally titled after the article, the studio wasn’t totally satisfied with that name, and many other titles, including Race Wars, were considered. The movie even went into production under the title Redline, but producer Neal Moritz had his mind set on one title that seemed unachievable to get; The Fast and the Furious.

The Fast And The Furious Is Named After A 1954 Movie

Another movie titled The Fast and the Furious already existed, and it was released almost half a century before the 2001 street racing film was released. 1954’s The Fast and the Furious, written by Roger Corman, has nothing to do with street racing as it exists today. The movie follows a prison escapee who kidnaps a rich woman and steals her Jaguar, then ends up in an epic road race that ends in Mexico. While the title perfectly fits the 1954 film, Moritz was desperate to use the title for his own movie that he was producing, having learned about it after seeing a Roger Corman documentary (via Entertainment Weekly).

Moritz detailed how Universal didn’t seem to be completely on board at first. The producer explained, “I called up the head of marketing at Universal the next morning and said ‘Okay, I’ve got the title: The Fast and the Furious!’ And there was just silence on the other end. I was like, ‘Oh, I guess that is the worst title he’s ever heard.’ However, after mulling it over, Universal agreed, and it worked out perfectly, as the whole world now knows that name and it’s synonymous with the Vin Diesel-led franchise. Movie titles are extremely important, and it’s less likely that the movie would have become a billion-dollar franchise if it was titled Race Wars.

Moritz revealed, “we made a deal with Roger to give him the use of some stock footage that Universal owned.” It isn’t clear if Corman ever benefited financially from that footage. In hindsight, he undoubtedly got a terrible deal. The Fast & Furious name is extremely important to the franchise and has made Universal billions. The name has even been used for spinoffs, and Fast & Furious Present: Hobbs & Shaw wouldn’t have made $760 million without the name attached to it. However, there was no knowing how huge the franchise became. After all, The Fast and the Furious was originally just a scrappy crime movie based on a magazine article.

Fast X Video Reveals BTS Of Real, Practical Fights In OTT Sequel


The Fast X fight between Letty and Cipher was filmed using practical effects, resulting in a well-choreographed hand-to-hand combat sequence full of emotions. Cipher’s decision to team up with Dom and “La Familia” was out of necessity, but spending time with Letty after escaping prison could lead to her becoming a member of the family. Cipher’s unexplored history with Giselle and her association with Letty could help in mellowing down the former villain and potentially setting up a redemption arc or even a Cipher spin-off.

A new Fast X behind-the-scenes video shows how Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and Cipher’s (Charlize Theron) intense fight scene was filmed. Dom and his “La Familia” returned on the big screen in 2023 for the tenth main installment of The Fast Saga. In a major twist, however, instead of butting heads again with Cipher, the primary villain of the franchise for several recent entries, Letty had to team up with her. That didn’t stop Letty from expressing her true feelings about her when they were both captured by the Agency.

Courtesy of Collider is a behind-the-scenes clip from Louis Leterrier’s Fast X that offers a look at how Cipher and Letty’s one-on-one fight scene was filmed. Check out the video below:

The Fast X fight is arguably one of the best choreographed hand-to-hand combat in The Fast Saga, and it’s all because they filmed it with practical effects. The result, coupled with the history between the pair, is an effective action sequence full of emotions.

How Cipher & Letty’s Relationship Evolves In Fast & Furious 11

Granted that Cipher’s decision to team up with Dom and “La Familia” came from necessity after she was targeted by Jason Momoa’s Dante, spending more time with Letty after escaping prison can lead to her becoming a proper member of “La Familia.” There’s precedent to this, with a few of the recent The Fast Saga villains ending up being redeemed and joining Dom and his crew. This has been the case with Deckard Shaw (despite his attempted murder of Han Lue), and more recently, John Cena’s Jakob, who sacrificed himself in Fast X to save Little B.

Increasing the chances of this happening is Cipher’s unexplored history with Giselle. After she and Letty finally escaped the Agency’s bunk prison, they found themselves in the middle of nowhere. Thankfully, Giselle came to the rescue after Cipher notified her of their escape plan. There has never been any indication that Cipher and Giselle know each other before the massive Fast X twist. Making this more surprising is that Giselle has been believed to be dead for several years now. Her association with Giselle could help Letty mellow down on the former villain when they all return for Fast and Furious 11.

Perhaps, this unexpected turn could be a set-up for the in-development Cipher spin-off. Specific plot details about the project are currently scant, with Universal still not announcing a tentative release date. Nevertheless, the events of Fast X could be the start of her redemption arc, with her relationship with Letty functioning as a barometer of whether viewers can finally forgive her for all of her transgressions.

10 Characters Who Should Be In It


Michelle Rodriguez’s Letty is the franchise’s biggest female character and the obvious pick to lead the all-female spinoff. Jordana Brewster’s Mia deserves a big role in the spinoff to expand on her character and showcase her growth. Brie Larson’s Tess is needed in the spinoff to explore the mystery surrounding her character and add her engaging screen presence to the team.

The Fast & Furious saga is meant to continue with an all-female-led movie, and casting the returning characters presents exciting options. An all-female spinoff could be the perfect way to continue the Fast &Furious story, as it will be able to retain the elements of the franchise that make it iconic while offering a new perspective. From the beginning, the franchise has been very male-dominated, and told male-centric stories, so offering the high-octane thrills of a Fast & Furious movie from a female perspective could be a welcome change of pace.

The series is known for having an all-star cast, so any female spinoff will have to match the previous films. Thankfully, the franchise already has several incredible female movie stars. Fast X, the latest film in the franchise, introduced and reintroduced some exciting female characters, setting the groundwork for the upcoming Fast & Furious movie. Obviously, whatever happens in the next film will determine who will be on the team and what side they will fight for. The franchise already has a healthy supply of female characters, both good and evil, who can factor into a Fast & Furious female spinoff.


Related Fast X Proves How Great A Fast & Furious Female Spinoff Would Be The idea of an all-female spinoff is more exciting than Fast & Furious 11, with Fast X providing the blueprint for just how well it could work.

10 Michelle Rodriguez’s Letty Can Lead The Fast Spinoff Ensemble
She’s the franchise’s biggest female character

Michelle Rodriguez’s Letty has been a key member of the Fast family since the first movie, and no female spinoff would feel right without her leading the team. Dominic Toretto’s wife is one of the fastest drivers in the world. Letty has made her way from street racer to international woman of mystery, becoming one of the franchise’s best characters in the process. Rodriguez is an incredibly engaging screen presence thanks to her charisma and action pedigree. An all-female action movie is right in her wheelhouse, making her the obvious pick for the lead in the movie.

9 Jordana Brewster’s Mia Deserves A Big Role
The Toretto family member has been sidelined recently

Another extension of the Toretto family tree, Jordana Brewster’s Mia is Dom’s brother and the wife of Paul Walker’s Brian. Since Walker’s tragic death, as well as the introduction of countless new characters, Mia has been sidelined in recent films, which is a shame because she is one of the best parts of the earlier films. A spinoff with just the women could be a great time to expand on Mia’s character and see how she has grown over the past couple of years, especially now that she is the mother of two. Brewster is an underrated talent, and Mia should be heavily involved in whatever spinoff the filmmakers plan.

8 Brie Larson’s Tess Is Needed After Fast X Introduction
Mr. Nobody’s daughter has a bright future

Fast X introduced several new faces to the franchise, but perhaps most notably was Brie Larson as Tess “Nobody”, a secret agent on a quest to protect Dom and his family. Larson had relatively little screen time in the movie, and her introduction felt like it was mostly included to set up a future spinoff. The Oscar winner is the perfect name to include in a spinoff. Larson is an incredibly engaging and vulnerable screen presence and a great addition to the team. As her family name would imply, there is still a lot of mystery about Tess that this spinoff could explore.

7 Ramsey’s Return Can Give Nathalie Emmanuel A Major Role

After her first appearance in Furious 7, Nathalie Emmanuel’s Ramsey has been the Fast team’s resident hacker and tech wiz. The Game of Thrones star has mostly been used for exposition and comic relief since joining the team, but Ramsey has a distinctive style and skill set that would make her a great addition to the female spinoff. While Mia and Letty are great drivers, Ramsey has skills in the digital realm that could help the team on whatever mission they are on. It would also be interesting to see how Ramsey functions outside the trio of her, Tej, and Roman.

6 Daniela Melchior’s Return As Isabel Gives The Spinoff More Legacy

For a while, Elsa Pataky’s Elena was viewed as an obvious candidate to appear in a Fast & Furious female spinoff. However, after her untimely demise in The Fate of the Furious, her younger sister can fill that void. Another new female protagonist introduced in Fast X, Daniela Melchior’s Isabel also felt like she was included mostly to set up this future spinoff. Melchior is one of the more promising young actors to pop up this decade, and her work in The Suicide Squad proves she is more than ready to have a large part in a team-up action movie.

5 Gal Gadot’s Place In The Fast Spinoff As Gisele Is Likely
Fast X confirmed Gisele is still alive

Gal Gadot made her return to Fast and Furious in the final moments of Fast X’s ending, which confirmed that Gisele is alive after Fast & Furious 6. The character’s return had been speculated for a long time, and audiences should see much more of her now that her fate is confirmed. A Fast & Furious female spinoff can answer lingering questions about Gisele’s life, such as how she survived falling from a plane or what she’s been doing for the last several years. The movie can also finally give Gisele a prominent role in the franchise once again.

4 Charlize Theron’s Cipher Could Play Both Sides In The Spinoff
The franchise’s villain is not to be trusted

In both The Fate of the Furious and F9: The Fast Saga, Charlize Theron’s Cipher served as the franchise’s primary antagonist. While Fast X puts her allegiance into question, she is still one of the best villains in all of Fast and Furious and would make an excellent baddie for the all-women team to go up against. While Cipher could be a reluctant ally to the team, Theron is just much more fun hamming it up as the bad guy, and the film could serve as a fitting conclusion to her movie-spanning scheme.

3 Eva Mendes Can Return As Monica Fuentes At Long Last
She hasn’t been seen since Fast Five
Monica Fuentes pointing a rifle in 2 Fast 2 Furious.

The Fast & Furious female spinoff would also be a great opportunity to finally bring back Eva Mendes as Monica Fuentes. Following her debut in 2 Fast 2 Furious, she returned briefly in Fast Five’s post-credits scene. Eva Mendes has since mostly retired from acting, leaving audiences without a chance to see Monica’s story continue. A Fast X Easter egg did provide a reminder of her presence in the franchise. This could be to help set up her appearance in Fast 11, but a return alongside the franchise’s biggest female characters would be more fitting.

2 Vanessa Kirby’s Hattie Needs To Crossover With The Main Franchise
She’s from the franchise’s only current spinoff

Only appearing in Hobbs & Shaw, Vanessa Kirby’s Hattie is the third sibling in the Shaw family and one of the most dangerous women in the Fast universe. She was a scene-stealing presence in the previous Fast & Furious spinoff movie that left audiences wanting more. It would be great to see Kirby return for an even bigger role in the franchise spinoff, allowing her to interact with some of the other prominent characters along the way.

1 Helen Mirren’s Queenie Should Be The Female Ensemble’s Mentor
She’s become a frequent face
Dom Toretto and Queenie Shaw in Fast and Furious

With her appearances in the past four movies, including Hobbs & Shaw, Helen Mirren has become a surprising mainstay of the Fast & Furious franchise. Her role as British gangster Queenie is such a fun role for the Dame, and her time in the universe should continue especially in the all-female spinoff. Mirren’s roles in the movies have mostly been one-scene cameos, so this film could be a great space to expand the character and give her a chance to interact with more actors than just Vin Diesel.
