Laurie and Dr Loomis take refuge in an operating room, but Michael breaks through the door and stabs Loomis in the abdomen. Crouched against a wall, Laurie tries to pacify Michael by calling his name, but he continues to advance on her, so she shoots him in the eye with Loomis' gun. Blinded, he swings his scalpel wildly but keeps missing his target. Meanwhile, Loomis has gotten to his feet and opened the oxygen jets on the wall. He orders Laurie to run, then says, "It's time, Michael," and strikes his cigarette lighter, causing the oxygen to explode in flames. Crouching outside the room behind a cart, Laurie watches Michael emerge from the flames, his entire body in flames, and continue advancing on her until he suddenly stumbles and falls to the floor. In the final scene, Laurie is loaded into an ambulance and driven away, her face blank to the emotions inside her.
