Edward (Richard Gere) kills Paul Martel. He hides the body at a garbage dump. The body is later found. The police stop by the house and ask some questions to Gere and Connie (Diane Lane) and the police don't suspect. Edward and Connie are later aware that they know each other's secret: she realizes that he knows she was cheating on him (at the dry cleaners she discovers the investigator's photographs of her and Paul inside a jacket); he realizes that she knows he killed Paul (one night she notices that the snow globe she gave to Paul is back at her house, indicating that Edward was at Paul's house and returned the globe to his house). Connie suggests they move to another country and change names. Edward suggests that he turns himself in to the police. The final scene is the couple (and their son asleep) in their car, right outside of the police station.
Other mistake: The first time the cops come to the house, Connie and her son see them from the upstairs window, and start walking downstairs. It then cuts to the cops in the living room looking around, and Connie walks in and introduces herself. Her husband is not home, so did the cops just walk into in the house without knocking?
Question: In the final scene of the film Richard Gere and Diane Lane have their SUV stopped at a traffic light, and I've noticed that there's a police station directly to their right. This could have very well been a coincidence, but maybe it's not? Does anyone know if it signifies anything pertaining to the plot, for example, the dilemma of Richard Gere turning himself in vs. their decision to flee the country?
