***The Revenant Ending***
Hugh and Captain Andrew Henry leave the Base to search for John, the traitor who left Hugh to die. Captain Henry is determined to apprehend John and bring him back to await trial.
In the midpoint of this film, John murdered Hugh's son, Hawk. John deceived Bridger, telling him that Indians were drawing close. As a result of this lie, these two men leave Hugh to die in a shallow grave. Bridger didn't want to leave Hugh behind, but John manipulated him.
Hugh and Captain Henry follow snow tracks. As a nature expert, Hugh inspects the snow tracks and senses John is close. Captain Henry wants to go in another direction, but Hugh is confident John is no further than a mile away.
Hugh and Captain Henry travel up the mountain. Then, Hugh goes off into another direction to track John. Captain Henry and John collide. He tells John he will be taking him back to the Base to await trial for murder. John disagrees this will happen. Both men draw.
Hugh hears gunshots echo into the wilderness. He finds Captain Henry dead and scalped. Hugh plans to trick John. He props Captain Henry up with a large stick. He makes it seems as if he is leading from the front.
John shoots at the first horse. He is sure he killed Hugh. When John approaches the horse to survey the body, he discovers it is Captain Henry.
John quickly turns to the back horse, where Hugh pops out and shoots him. Wounded, John runs away from John. The two men get into a fight with knives and an ax. They beat each other to a bloody pulp. Hugh is stabbed in the leg. He axes John's fingers.
John almost stabs Hugh in the face. Hugh turns the knife on John, stabbing him in his abdomen. John crawls to the bottom, near the cold stream. Hugh is on mission to kill John.
John reminds Hugh that he came a long way to seek revenge and there is nothing he can do to bring back his boy. He remembers what the Sioux Indian tells him earlier on, that revenge is in the hands of God.
Hugh pushes John into the stream. He watches on, as Arikara Elder pulls John out of the water and slices his neck.
The Indians ride by John, where the daughter silently acknowledges him. Hugh treks up the hill. He sees a vision of his wife, as a sign that it is all over and a new journey is on the horizon. Hugh breaks the fourth wall, and then the movie ends.
