Paris (Pom Klementieff) saves Hunt and Grace from falling off the train before she tells them what the key is for, and Ethan realizes that his parachute can’t hold two people. Grace tells Ethan that it’s ok, and he jumps off the train and activates his parachute. Grace goes to the director of the CIA and he seemingly allows her to join the IMF. Then Benji (Simon Pegg) meets Ethan as he sails to the ground, and Ethan hands him the key, setting up a major showdown Mission: Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part Two.
