Peter: Tom is crushing me.

Tom Ripley: Nothing is more naked than your handwriting. See how nothing's quite touching the line? That's vanity.

Question: I know that Tom had to kill Peter because of Meredith's family being there and all, but what exactly does this end mean? Is Ripley caught as a liar? Does he stay as Dickie for the rest of his life? What exactly does this end suggest?

Answer: He slips back into the original lie he was telling Meredith, so he can be with her. Peter would know he was lying, so Tom must kill him.
