In a post-credits scene, while Han is being chased in Tokyo (realigning the events from Tokyo Drift to the present time), he is hit by an oncoming car, resulting in Han’s car exploding, killing him and revealing that the crash was an orchestrated attack. The other car’s driver is revealed to be, Ian Shaw (Jason Statham), Owen Shaw’s older brother, walks away from the scene and calls Dominic, leaving him a threatening message saying “Dominic Toretto, you don’t know me, you’re about to”.
