“Howdy companion. Do you want surprises?” Dante tells the thriller particular person, including, “You took an important factor in my life from me. Dom drove the automobile, however you? You pulled the set off and now I am gonna make you endure.”

As Dante speaks, the scene cuts to the tip of “Quick 5,” ending a scene that replayed on the film’s begin. Intentionally omitted from the opening minutes, Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) seems on-screen, killing Hernan Reyes.

The thriller agent removes his masks, revealing it is Hobbs.

“The satan’s coming for you,” Dante says, pausing earlier than sarcastically including, “Lawman.”

“Properly, I ain’t onerous to search out you sumbitch.”

Earlier than Insider was conscious of a mid-credits scene that includes Johnson, I requested director Louis Leterrier if he had deliberate to shoot something with the actor or have somebody inform Dante it was Hobbs, not Dom, who killed his father.

Johnson’s return to “The Quick Saga” is a shock because the actor publicly mentioned there “was no likelihood” he would return to the franchise.

Johnson and Diesel have reportedly feuded on and off all the best way again to 2016, since engaged on the franchise’s eighth movie, “The Destiny of the Livid.”

In November 2021, Diesel publicly requested Johnson to return to the “Quick” franchise for its tenth movie. In an Instagram submit, Diesel requested Johnson to “not go away the franchise idle,” including that the actor had “an important position to play” within the film, one we now know.

Positive, Dom might have been accountable for crashing Reyes’ automobile and Dom’s crew might have stolen lots of the Reyes’ fortune, nevertheless it was Hobbs who pulled the set off on Dante’s father.

He did not even kill Hernan in self-defense.

As an alternative of arresting Reyes for his unlawful actions in Brazil, the Diplomatic Safety Service agent ruthlessly murdered him.

When Reyes reached out to Hobbs for assist, he coldly shot Reyes with out hesitation, exacting his personal model of justice after shedding a few of his crew.

By ignoring that crucial element till a just lately added credit scene, it was as if the “Quick” saga was attempting to disregard or write across the plot level within the occasion Johnson by no means returned.

“Quick X” and any sequels would’ve been much less plausible with out the mid-credits reveal as a result of any actual fan is aware of Hobbs killed Hernan Reyes. 

If Johnson by no means returned, it doubtless would’ve been dealt with ultimately. A sequel might’ve explored killing Hobbs off-screen with Dante informing Dom he conveniently took care of the one who put a bullet in his dad earlier than concentrating on the remainder of the “Quick” fam. 

As an alternative, Hobbs’ return opens up extra avenues for a sequel.

We do not count on Dante to go simple on Hobbs. Earlier movies launched Hobbs’ daughter into the combination who Dante might doubtlessly goal.

If Hobbs is ready to flip the tables on Dante, we might see him attempting to roll in as a white knight, saving the day.
