Scoop (2006)

Ending / spoiler

Sid (Woody Allen) is suspicious of Peter (Hugh Jackman) and investigates some more. He talks to a neighbor of Elizabeth Gibson, the woman who died the day that Sondra (Scarlett Johansson) and Sid saw Peter walking near the restaurant when he was supposed to be on a trip. Elizabeth's neighbor mentions that everyone called Elizabeth "Betty" (Sid found a sketch at Peter's house with the name Betty G) and that she would frequently see a wealthy client named Peter Yardley. At his estate, at the lake, Peter confesses to Sondra that he killed Betty in the same manner as the Tarot Card Killer so no one would suspect him and because Betty found out that he was Peter Lyman and wanted to blackmail him. He then pushes Sondra off a row boat and she drowns and Sid dies in a car crash on the way to the estate. Peter talks to the police saying that Sondra was alone at the lake and drowned but she shows up alive and well since she was pretending that she couldn't swim (like when she met Peter at the club). Sondra's scoop on Peter is published and she gives credit to Joe Strombel (Ian McShane) and Sid. In the afterlife, on Death's boat, Sid entertains the recently deceased with magic tricks...
