John appears at the top of the ramp, his machine gun leveled at waist height.

Hans has a gun trained on Holly.

Sparks fall from an overhead electric cable.

Holly looks at John’s blood-covered appearance. “Jesus,” she says.

John staggers toward them.  “Hi, honey,” he says to Holly.

Hans backs up with Holly, keeping the gun trained on her head.

Eddie glances down at the machine gun that’s hanging off his freight dolly.

John continues to stagger down the ramp. “So that’s what this was all about?” he says, “a f—in’ robbery?”

“Put down the gun,” says Hans.

“Why did you have to nuke the whole building, Hans?” asks John.

“Well, when you steal six hundred dollars, you can just disappear,” explains Hans. “When you steal 600 million, they will find you — unless they think you’re already dead.  Put down the gun.”

John glances at Eddie, then looks back to Holly. Holly tries to read his expression.

McClane lowers his gun.
