Desire comes to an end!
In their hiding place, George tells a gagged and bound Andrea that no one came for her. He raises his gun and prepares to kill her. Just as he raises his gun and is about to shoot her, Louis calls George on his cell phone. When he answers, Louis tells George, "I'm here! I have the money!" From their hiding place Victoria looks at the phone booth an sees Alex and Louis. Victoria tells George that Louis brought Alex with him. Angered that he brought Alex, george tells Louis he is too late. Andrea yells out to him, and Louis hears her. He tells George that he will bring the money to him, and to stay put. Louis hands his phone to Alex, goes to his car to get the money and his gun, and heads off toward George. On the phone, Alex pleads with George to not kill Andrea, George tells him, "It's too late, she's already dead!"
Inside the hiding place, George tells Victoria that he doesn't want to ransom Andrea, he wants to kill her. Victoria tells George to wait, and kill her after they get the money. George points his gun at Victoria, and Victoria slaps George. He reluctantly agrees to go get the money. Victoria tells him she will stand with Andrea at the window, and if things go south she will push her out.
George goes downstairs to meet Louis. He has Louis lift up his shirt to prove he isn't armed, and then put down the money, taking a step away from it. George goes to the money and opens the bag, taking out a pile of bills. Louis asks him to let Andrea go now that he has what he wants, and George declines. In the distance Alex steps on a piece of medal drawing attention to his presence. Victoria yells out, "It's a trap!" George then notices that the pile of bills in his hand is a $100 bill, with $1 bills behind them. He raises his gun to kill Louis.
Victoria yells out for George to kill Louis. After she yells out a few times, George raises his gun, and shoots Victoria. He hits her once in the arm, causing her to lose her grip on Andrea, and make her fall out the window, holding on barely to the window sill. George shoots again, this time hitting Victoria in the chest, and making her plunge to her death out the window.
Alex rushes upstairs to save Andrea. Just as the window sill she is holding onto gives away, Alex grabs her and pulls her to safety. The two kiss, happy that they are now safe.
Downstairs, Louis and George fight over the gun. Louis gets control of the gun and poises himself to shoot George. When George tells Louis that he can't kill him because they are both the same, Louis thinks for a moment, giving George the opportunity to knock him off balance. The two fight over the gun on the ground and a shot is fired.
From upstairs, Alex hears the shot fired and looks out the window, yelling "Louis!" He watches as George stands up with the gun, and points it at Louis, who is lying on the ground motionless.
Alex yells out to George, and George points his gun towards Alex. While George's back is turned, Louis takes his gun and shoots George in the back. George is startled, and when he turns around to retalate, the police arrive. Detective Lin tells George to, "Drop it Marsten!" George refuses, and Lin shoots him, killing him.
Louis has a huge gunshot wound in his stomach. Alex and Andrea tell him he's going to be fine. Louis turns to Andrea and says, "Take care of my brother!" He loses consciousness, and Alex and Andrea break down in tears.
On the beach, we see a preacher speaking to a group of people including Jessica, Andrea, Alex, Cully, and Erica. Originally it looks to be a funeral, until the preacher says "We're here to join this man and this woman in holy matrimony!" The camera moves to reveal Louis standing beside Jessica, and Peter and Rita standing beside the pastor to be wed. Rita and Peter exchange vows, an once again become man and wife. After the wedding, Rita tells everyone that they are invited back to Zavatii for dinner, dancing, and drinks!
Jessica approaches Louis, and asks him if he needs a date to the reception. Louis kisses her and they start to talk. Jessica touches his stomach, and he winces, claiming to be a wounded man. Jessica tells him that it's been 2 months, and since the bullet passed right through him he's only going to have a scar, not a wound for life. Cully and Erica stop by to talk to them, and they all decide to head off to the reception.
At Zavattii, Andrea talks to Erica and Cully about their new life in Chicago. Erica has a job at a restaurant, and Cully has started a security firm. Jessica talks to Daniel and Claudia about wedding ceremonies, and the rest of the guests converse with one another. Andrea silences the crowd in order for Alex to give a toast. Alex tells the room that in the past few months he has lost and regained a brother, he and Louis have gained a father, and their lives have totally changed. Everyone toasts to new beginnings, and Daniel plays the piano as Peter and Rita share their first dance.
Suzy loiters outside of Zavattii and considers going in. She decides to leave, and a man in a nice car drives up to asks for directions. Suzy starts to tell him where to go, then decides better of it and tells him she'll just show him, getting in her car
In witness protection, Marco grills burgers for he and Cara. The two of them talk about how they wish they had a pool and a cook, from their lawn chairs sitting in their front yard.
At the reception, Louis and Alex talk. Louis points out that they are standing in the same place they first saw Andrea and made the bet. Louis tells Alex he won. When Alex looks over at Jessica and Andrea, he tells him that they both won, and then says, "Double of nothing?" Louis and Alex go out to dance with their girls.
