No Time to Die (2020)

Ending / spoiler

(3 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: Blofeld somehow arranges the entire Spectre would-be ambush and monitors it in real time from his cell, despite being utterly locked down and only having contact with Madeleine. Even when his cell is ordered to be searched there's no report of anything being found. The mechanism by which he was still somehow in touch with the outside world is just totally forgotten about.
