Stephen is bitten and changed into a zombie. Peter shoots him in the head.
In the end the bikers all break into the mall letting thousands of the living dead in. A bloodbath ensures.
Peter and a pregnant Francine escape via their helicopter on the roof. They fly off, low on fuel and seemingly nowhere safe to go.

Trivia: Despite popular belief to the contrary, the bright-red "pastel" look of the blood effects in the film was an intentional decision by director George A. Romero. He wanted the film to have a slight "Comic-Book Aesthetic", and thus chose an extremely bright hue of fake-blood in order to better contrast with the muted-gray look of the zombies.

Question: When the group first meet up at the dock, just as they are about to set off in the helicopter, when Roger closes the door, he then looks out of the window - eventually he gives a smiling nod. This could simply be a nod to the other group but it seems as if it may have been unintentional possibly as if he thought that the camera had stopped rolling. Curious to see if anyone could clarify it. Maybe I'm just looking too much into the film.
