John Wick’s Fate in Chapter 4

Yes, John Wick does appear to die in John Wick Chapter 4. Before we can discuss the actual scene, though, we need to provide some important context.

Earlier in the movie, John meets with High Table member Marquis Vincent de Gramont and challenges him to a duel. The Marquis spends most of the story hunting John down and killing anyone who gets in his way, so he seizes this opportunity to use the bounty on John to his advantage. But for John, challenging the Marquis to single combat is the only way for him to leave his life as the Baba Yaga. According to the Old Ways (long-standing assassin traditions), John can properly start a new life if he bests the Marquis in a duel. The Marquis, all too aware of John’s reputation as an impossible-to-beat fighter, enlists every assassin in Paris to make sure his opponent doesn’t live long enough to duel.

Following a lengthy fight for his life against nearly every hitman in Paris, John stumbles down the steps and eventually collapses. The next scene finds Winston (Ian McShane) and the Bowery King (Lawrence Fishburne) gazing at John’s grave and discussing his legacy.
