No Time to Die (2021)

Ending / spoiler

(8 votes)

Madeleine and Mathilde escape with Nomi from the island. Bond stays to open the blast doors, so that missiles launched from a British Navy ship will destroy the underground lab. Fighting with Safin, Bond is wounded, and also infected with nanobots, which Safin reveals are targeted at Madeleine and Mathilde - if ever Bond touches them again they'll die. He kills Safin. Realising his happy ending is forever out of his grasp, coupled with his injury slowing him down so much he can't escape the island before the missiles hit, he opens the blast doors and climbs up a ladder to the surface.

He makes a call to Madeleine where he tells her about the virus, and she confirms, as he already strongly suspected, that Mathilde is his daughter. Bond says he loves her, and makes his peace with his choices, knowing that he's done his duty and saved the world, and looks at the horizon as the missiles land right at his feet, killing him in a massive explosion. M, Q, Moneypenny, Nomi and Tanner meet to have a drink in Bond's memory. We see Madeleine and Mathilde driving, happy, with Madeleine telling Mathilde about her father.

Plot hole: At the end of Spectre Blofeld loses his eye in the crash. In No Time To Die he is being held in Belmarsh Prison, which is high security and holds many terrorists like him, but despite all the high security somehow he has access to a bionic eye which was given to him while in prison. This would've been thoroughly checked many times before being classed as safe and given to him.

Suggested correction: Blofeld loses the eye in an explosion earlier in Spectre, before he went to London. He likely already had the eye with him when he was captured after the crash.

In the UK there are several TV shows about police and prison corruption. It isn't much of a stretch to imagine that one of the guards was bribed and smuggled the eye in for him. Blofeld is a criminal mastermind - he would have many resources at his disposal despite capture.

He just happened to have a bionic eye on his person as a backup in case he lost one of his real ones in an accident?
