The Protégé ending

As Anna distracts, Rembrandt keeping him away from his bose, Edward Moody reaches him and confronts him. As he confronts Edward, the bunker they were in explodes. Blowing both Moody and Edward from the inside and leaving Anna injured as she escapes from the place. All alone in Vietnam, Anna visits the place where she lost her family, and she venged their death at the same time. But from behind comes Rembrandt as he was tracking her all along. Even though they both know they have feelings for each other, Anna says that she can’t take the risk of leaving him alive. As he can act like his bose Edward and come after her. As the scene shifts to the outside of the building, the gunshot goes off. And Anna walks out of the building alone.

Leaving The Fans With No Ending?

As the movie ends with Anna coming out of the building alone after a gunshot is fired. It left a lot of fans wondering about what could have happened. As we knew, Anna didn’t really have a choice for leaving Rembrandt alive, thinking he might tell on her or kill her. But they both had feelings for each other. That might’ve stopped her. The movie leaves with an open ending and a chance for a possible sequel. Till the sequel comes, fans can cook up theories about what happened. We have some guesses. It could be a chance if Anna let her feelings for him get in between, she might have not killed him. Maybe firing the gun to just injure him and running away. Or just shooting in the air to scare him. Or it could be that Rembrandt shot himself. We’ll know for sure if the sequel comes.
