After learning that Elena's daughter is alive and living in Laguna, Ben and Chon kidnap her to trade for O, and a clean break from Elena's cartel. The trade is to take place in an open plateau between two hills, on which both Chon and Elena have snipers. After the trade, Elena asks Chon who the rat in her cartel is. Chon outs Lado as the rat, and this leads to a grand shootout in which Elena, Lado and a few of the snipers are all killed, while Ben and Chon are wounded. When O sees that Ben's wound is mortal, Chon injects Ben, and then O and himself, with drug overdoses and they die together in each others' arms in a triple suicide-- or, as O says, she merely imagined it. We 'rewind' back to the start of the trade, where O reveals that the actual events were a 'fuck-up.' When Elena steps forward to make the trade, Lado slips into the car and drives off, just as Dennis and a team of DEA agents arrive to seize and arrest Elena. Ben, Chon and O are also arrested, but released as informants to Dennis because they have enough information on him to send him to prison as well. Ben, Chon and O all leave their business and travel, spending time in Indonesia and Africa, where Ben resumes humanitarian volunteer work.
