The ending of The Bodyguard of Hitman’s Wife introduces an unexpected wrinkle that could create a potentially bizarre sequel.

WARNING: The following contains spoilers for The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, now in theaters.

The bodyguard of the hitman’s wife follows Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds), a former bodyguard who has had his bodyguard license under review for his decision to save his friend, Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson), in the The bodyguard of the hit man. Just when he’s trying to find a semblance of peace, he’s drawn back into Kincaid’s life when his wife, Sonia (Salma Hayek), forcibly recruits Bryce to help save her captured husband.

The pair are quickly successful, but they end up entangled in a much bigger and more important mission: to assist in the capture, and to keep an important piece of technology out of the hands of Aristotle Papadopoulos (Antonio Banderas), a wealthy figure in Greece who has the intention of bringing chaos to all of Europe.

As they cross Italy and barely survive the attacks by Papadopoulos forces, Bryce is forced to put up with Darius and Sonia’s constant conversations about wanting a child. But unbeknownst to Sonia, Darius is unable to have children thanks to a gunshot wound he received from Bryce in the previous film. The couple also develop a deeper bond with Bryce, especially Sonia, who grows up to genuinely care for Bryce in a manner similar to an authoritarian mother. Eventually, Sonia is captured by Papadopulous and brought aboard his yacht to witness him complete his plan, along with his allies, now revealed to include Bryce’s stepfather (Morgan Freeman), his rival bodyguard Magnusson (Tom Hopper), the assassin Zento (Kristofer Kamiyasu) and mercenary Veronika (Gabriella Wright).

Together, the trio can kill Papadopulous and his agents, including Bryce’s stepfather, and escape alive when the yacht explodes. Congratulated by Interpol agent Bobby O’Neill (Frank Grillo), Bryce initially believes that the paperwork he was told to sign will officially reinstate him as a licensed bodyguard, something his stepfather had previously sabotaged in the film. But in reality, you are signing adoption papers. That is, to Bryce and Darius’s surprise (and Sonia’s joy), Bryce is now legally the “son” of the Kincaid criminals. The film ends with the trio forced to board a boat to await further instructions, and Bryce chooses to jump into the sea rather than listen to Darius and Sonia “celebrate” their victory.

It’s a surprising and extremely strange way to end the movie, with Sonia’s desire to give birth to a deranged child with Darius’s reminder that they can simply adopt. Although her one-sided bond with Bryce plays out throughout the film, the final reveal makes the connection even stranger. It’s also clear that O’Neill is aware of what the paperwork will do legally, and is more than happy to facilitate it to mess with Bryce. It’s unclear how this happened, or even what the characters genuinely think the new status quo was imposed on them. But it also quietly sets up a potential sequel to go in a much more chaotic and potentially fun direction.

With his position in the bodyguard world likely sunk once and for all, it would be a fun twist for Bryce to shift more toward an independent and dangerous lifestyle that he learns to cuddle with Darius at the climax of The bodyguard of the hitman’s wife. His relationship with Darius could grow closer, helping to soften the old hitman towards his constantly agitated new family member. Sonia could then be the unexpected and volatile glue that holds them together, uniting the couple and turning them into a genuinely dangerous group of mercenaries. It could allow the filmmakers to embrace the quirkier sides of the film, which were definitely the highlight. It’s a wild final, but one that could really establish the potential for future movies in a fun way.

Directed by Patrick Hughes, The Hitman’s Wife Bodyguard stars Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, Salma Hayek, Antonio Banderas, Morgan Freeman, Frank Grillo, Caroline Goodall, Rebecca Front, Gabriella Wright, Alice McMillan, Kristofer Kamiyasu, Tom Hopper, Blake Ritson and Richard. E.
