The episode ends with a gun fight between Psycho Paul and Stemroach. Steve kills Stemroach by throwing his glass eye at his forehead. Jenny then reveals she has been shot in the stomach. The episode fades to the credits leaving the viewer to speculate as to whether or not Jenny dies.


The ending of this episode was a closely guarded secret. In fact, so much so that the production team filmed multiple endings so that the plot wouldn't leak out.
