John Dillinger (Johnny Depp) is killed by Bureau agents after he leaves a movie theater; before dying, he says his final words to Agent Winstead. Billie (Marion Cotillard) is visited by Winstead and he tells her John's final words: "Bye bye, black bird." Some text on screen before the end credits mention that Melvin Purvis (Christian Bale) quit the Bureau one year later and died in an accident in 1960. Billie was released from jail in 1936 and lived the rest of her life in Wisconsin.
