Father Karras body is taken over by the demon that once possessed Reagan. In order to kill himself, Karras musters up the strength to leap out of the top story window to forever vanquish the demonic force residing in the house. Reagan is physically scarred, but flushed of the evil that once possessed her soul. (submitted by Vitascope)
Trivia: In the scene where Regan's mother is supernaturally blasted away from the bedside, she is being yanked by the crew by a length of rope. After dozens of takes director William Friedkin was still unhappy with the look of the shot and ordered the crew to haul her more fiercely. The scream in the shot that made the cut was of genuine pain and required no dubbing for effect.
