Fast X: Post Credits Scene, Ending Explained and Our Biggest Questions About Fast 11


Let’s cut to the chase: You want to know if there are any post-credits scenes in Fast X, the latest Fast and the Furious movie. We’ll tell you right here: There is one scene and it comes during the mid-credits.

Don’t read any further if you want to avoid spoilers!

Like every movie in the franchise before it, Fast X pulls off a high-wire third act full of car stunts, guns, and explosions. But instead of neatly resolving the action in time for a backyard BBQ with the Fast Family, the tenth movie’s final half hour floors the proverbial gas pedal to set up the conflicts for its sequel (and potential threequel). None of the action is particularly complicated, but there is a lot of it.

And all that action leads to a ton of questions we have about where Fast 11 will go. But before we get to those, let’s talk about the ending…

Fast X Ending Explained: So Many Cliffhangers

Just as it seemed like John Cena’s Jakob Toretto would get his older brother’s eight-year-old son, Brian, aka Little B (Leo Abelo Perry), who can already do donuts in parking lots, to the crew’s hidden rendezvous point in Portugal to reunite, they’ve been smoked out. Jason Momoa’s ballet-loving buff Joker villain Dante Reyes — retconned to be the son of Fast 5’s politician, drug kingpin, and vault-haver Hernan Reyes — has seized possession of the ultimate hacking and tracking tool, the God Hand, triangulating the secret location. Henchmen swarm, and Jakob and Little B escape in Jakob’s latest project, a car rigged with dual cannons.

In a lengthy car chase, Vin Diesel’s Dom backs his car out mid-air from the underbelly of a military jet helmed by Aimes (Alan Ritchson), the new head of the Agency, who suddenly (and suspiciously, even) became an ally in Rio. With Dante on Jakob’s tail, he nabs Little B, who climbed onto the back of the car in order to fix the jammed cannon rig. Dom catches up, flanked by bad guy cars, and Jakob launches his car with a split fuel line over the median, sacrificing himself to give Dom the space to get his son back. In a truly wild two-car spinout — though not before Dom crashes two helicopters that harpooned his car — Little B opens the passenger door of Dante’s car right as it aligns with Dom’s open passenger window and leaps inside, successfully reuniting with his dad by listening to the wisdom he got from the top of the movie: “Find the line, feel the car, and let it fly.”

‘Find the line, feel the car, and let it fly.’

It would have been a natural end for any other Fast movie, but Fast X still has a lot more gas left in the tank. Dom might have gotten Little B back, but Dante has a few more moves to whip out on top of the scenic Alto Tamega Dam. First is a little classic betrayal: Dante reveals that Aimes has been working with him all along; he was the man in the blue suit from the vault heist flashback at the beginning of the movie, and he shoots down the incoming plane carrying Roman (Tyrese Gibson) and Tej (Ludacris). Dante then remotely controls two oil tankers on either side of Dom’s car to smash into each other, which Dom evades by careening down the side of the roller coaster-steep face of the dam, losing his car in the escape. In Dante’s final trick, he blows up the dam, sending a rushing wave of water towards Dom and Little B — and Fast X cuts over to Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and Cipher (Charlize Theron) snowshoeing it through Antarctica when Gal Gadot’s once-dead character Gisele pops through the frigid sea with a rescue submarine.

Is There a Post-Credits Scene in Fast X?

But wait, there’s still more! Fast X features a mid-credits scene, and it’s a big one.

After the initial credits, an unknown agent stumbles into another of Dante’s phony lairs — this one’s a church (perhaps from Fast & Furious 4?) with a single old TV, from which Dante announces more new information for viewers. This masked man apparently shot and killed Hernan Reyes after the devastating car crash on the bridge in Rio de Janeiro in Fast 5, and he’s on Dante’s hit list. The guy pulls off his mask and there’s Dwayne Johnson as the salt-and-pepper goateed Luke Hobbs, the Diplomatic Security Service agent who was hunting down Dom and Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) in Fast 5. The movie, finally, ends.

And no, there is no other scene after the final credits roll.

Dwayne Johnson returns as Hobbs!

Our Biggest Questions After Watching Fast X

So with all of the characters split up across the globe and several wide-open plot points, here are the questions that the Fast X sequel will have to answer…

How Are Dom and Little B Going to Escape the Exploded Dam?

After barreling down the incredibly steep facade of Portugal’s Alto Tamega Dam, Dom and Little B have evaded the oil tanker crash orchestrated by Dante Reyes. But of course, as a sadistic madman often does, Dante has one more disastrous trick up his sleeve, exploding the dam walls and sending thousands of tons of water hurtling toward the Torettos, who are left without a car. The camera closes in on a tight shot of Dom huddling with his son before abruptly cutting to Letty and Cipher’s troubles in Antarctica.

Though they’re in a perilous situation, it’s hard to imagine that the next Fast movie would kill off Dom and his kid. But how will they get out of this pickle? Maybe someone will bring a helicopter in at the last possible second before they’re swept away by the gushing current of water? Likely, we’ll get the answer in the first few minutes of the next film.

Did Anyone (ie. Jakob, Roman, Tej) Who Seemingly Died Actually Survive Their Fiery Crashes?

Right as we learn that Aimes has been working with Dante since the vault heist in Fast 5, the Agency mole bazookas down Roman and Tej’s incoming plane, which crashes into the side of a nearby mountain in a deadly blaze. Minutes before, Jakob sacrifices himself in his cannon car to stop Dante’s guys from tailing Dom and Little B. Though both crashes look pretty damn life-ending, the Fast franchise has a penchant for reviving characters presumed dead (see: the explanation of Han’s assassination evasion with the help of Kurt Russell’s Mr. Nobody in F9; Giselle, somehow, in this movie).

Jakob’s car bomb certainly seemed a little more final than the plane crash — Roman and Tej did briefly see the rocket incoming, after all, and it’s possible that they were able to evacuate in the nick of time. Side note: Though Roman and Tej were kicking around with Han (Sung Kang) and Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel) the entire movie, were the former two actually on that plane? Only Roman and Tej are shown, bickering and making up.

How Is Gal Gadot’s Gisele Yashir Alive?

Gisele, a weapons expert and ex-Mossad agent who has popped up in several Fast movies, sacrificed herself at the end of Fast & Furious 6 to save Han, her love interest since Fast 5, from one of Deckard Shaw’s henchmen. And yet, there she is, smiling and waving to Letty and Cipher from the hatch of her massive rescue submarine that had just surfaced through an ice sheet in the final minutes of Fast X. Once she actually gets some lines, Gisele has a lot of explaining to do about how the hell she’s alive and how she managed to track down the two women in the middle of the sub-zero tundra.

What Are Hobbs and Shaw up To?

After closing the loop from F9’s mid-credits scene, wherein Shaw opens his seedy London lair to find Han at his doorstop, and turning Hobbs into yet another target of Dante’s through Fast X’s post-credits scene retcon, the odd couple are officially back in the Fast Fam fold. Learning that his mother, Dame Helen Mirren’s Magdalene “Queenie” Shaw, is a target for the Agency for associating with Dom, Shaw skids off in his car (vanity plate: RO4D RGE) with a sack of guns to go protect her. Hobbs, like Dom, is lured into a phony safehouse where Dante tells him about the target on his head. Obviously, the tailend of the Fast saga is pulling out all the stops, turning enemies into family, in order to end Dante’s streak of global terrorism, and certainly the next movie(s) will address how the Hobbs and Shaw of it all play into Dom’s endgame. Maybe Queenie has a line out to Mr. Nobody, which leads us to…

Where Is Mr. Nobody?

Mr. Nobody, the head of the Agency, has been effectively missing from the present-day timeline since the end of Fate of the Furious, the eighth movie. At the beginning of F9, Roman, Tej, and Ramsey interrupt Dom and Letty’s peaceful life with an SOS from Mr. Nobody, informing the crew that the plane on which he was transporting the captured Cipher was downed, setting Cipher free once again and leaving Mr. Nobody’s status unknown. In Fast X, Brie Larson’s Tess, Mr. Nobody’s daughter, steps in, letting the crew know that her dad is actually in hiding. But where, exactly, is he? Will he be able to end the Agency’s manhunt for Dom, etc.? Will he have tech even more powerful than the God Hand up his sleeve? TBD, but definitely expect him to finally resurface.

How Will the Fast Family Link Up Again?

With the Portuguese rendezvous point compromised, Letty and Cipher and Gisele in Antarctica, Han and Ramsey possibly still in London, and Dom and Little B (and maybe Roman and Tej and Jakob) in rural Portugal, the family is, obviously, dispersed around continents, unable to harness their full potential in the fight against Dante. How will they all reconvene to take down the Big Bad, and where? Maybe Mr. Nobody’s secret spot will have something to do with it, but really, I have no idea! Next.

Will the Next Fast Movie Add a CGI Paul Walker?

Literally God forbid.

How Will Dom and the Crew Take Out Dante Reyes?

Dante proved himself to be a slippery villain in Fast X, somehow constantly evading authorities and leaving the Fast Fam on the hook for his destruction. He’s a sociopathic gadget guy who loves blowing stuff up, and now that he’s got his hands on the God’s Eye after snatching it from a downed Tess, there’s a lot more havoc for him to wreak. What will Dom and co.’s ultimate plan be to stop him? Whatever it is, it better top launching a crappy old Pontiac Fiero into space.
