The Ending Of
No Country
For Old Men
The story of “No Country for Old Men” is very tightly focused on just a few people caught up in the chaos that unfolds from the drug deal gone wrong. We never really learn much about the Mexican cartel’s motivations, what becomes of them, or if they plan to retaliate.
Mexican Fallout
Viewers know the Mexican half of the drug deal went very wrong, but it's clear from the events of the film that the other side was much worse off by the time the dust settled. On the American side, they neither have the drugs they wanted nor the money they planned to spend, but we can assume the fallout was not pretty.
Texas Fallout
By the end of the film, Ed Tom is retired, his sense of law and order upended by the Moss affair, which means someone else now has to follow in his footsteps and become the next sheriff. Whether that's his deputy Wendell or someone else, Bell will no doubt have some standing in his community as a kind of elder statesman.
The Next Sheriff
For much of No Country for Old Men, hitman Anton Chigurh feels like an unstoppable killing machine. But by the end of the movie, he is left injured by a car accident and has to succumb to bribing kids to keep their mouths shut which leaves his fate up in the air once the movie ends.
Chigurh's Fate
The MacGuffin at the center of the film is the satchel full of money that finally ends up with Chigurh, who takes it from Moss' hotel room after killing him. What happens to the cash after the movie remains a mystery, but if anyone can manage to hide in plain sight with $2 million, it's probably Anton Chigurh.
