Sloan confirms to Bernstein that Haldeman was the fifth man to control the fund, Sloan was ready to tell the Grand Jury but was never asked about Haldeman. They tell Bradlee (Robards) who is pleased that they were right, but gives them a warning never to mess up again. The final scene shows members of the Washington Post watching Nixon's Inauguration while Bernstein and Woodward quickly type the repercussion's of everyone involved in Watergate, including Nixon resigning as President and Gerald Ford become successor.
