Plot Summary

Emma Davenport (Megan Fox) ends her extramarital affair with Tom Gorman (Aml Ameen) a day before her marriage anniversary. On her anniversary, Emma visits her husband, Mark Webster’s office, to later drive to their special evening. At the office, Emma spots her case file that triggers her anxiety.

On May 3rd, 2010, in an attempted robbery at Emma’s house in New York, she was stabbed by Bobby Ray (Callan Mulvey). She assaulted Bobby in his eyes with her car keys and thus survived the tragedy.

When Emma inquires about Bobby’s file in Mark’s office, Mark notifies that he is revoking his parole. The subject quickly dissolves as the couple leaves for the dinner date. On their way out, they meet Tom, who is Mark’s junior. The stiff tension between Tom and Emma is clearly suggestive, but Mark chooses to ignore it.

After the dinner date, Mark blindfolds Emma and takes her to The Lake House to freshen some memories and spend the rest of the evening. However, when she wakes up the next morning, she finds herself cuffed to Mark. He gives a quick glance at Emma and shoots a bullet in his head.

A disturbed Emma seeks help, but Mark cuts off all connections with the other world before killing himself. His final act leaves a plethora of questions that the film investigates further.

Why did Mark shoot himself?

Mark did know about Emma’s extramarital affair with Tom. He designed the great murder scene to take revenge on Emma for cheating on him. However, it was not the prominent reason for putting a bullet in his head.

Before dying, Mark sent messages to Tom and called him to the Lake House. When Emma opened the door, and Tom witnessed the bloodbath, the deranged lover connected the dots behind Mark’s act. Tom informed Emma about the D.A raid at Mark’s office last night. Mark was charged for tampering with the evidence on multiple cases, and to avoid an investigation, he killed himself. However, before leaving the world, he orchestrated a vengeance against his unlawful wife.

Why did Mark have Bobby’s file?

Mark met Emma in 2010 when he was an assistant district attorney and was personally looking after Emma’s case. In the beginning, Emma saw the file again, and it triggered suspicion. At that time, Mark convinced Emma that he pulled off Bobby’s file to provoke his parole. But he lied.

Mark hired Bobby to take his revenge on Emma, who witnessed him and sent him to jail. Mark informed Bobby about invaluable diamonds kept in the Lakehouse safe. A greedy Bobby couldn’t resist vengeance and richness and thus, showed up at the Lake House with his brother, Jimmy.

Bobby killed Tom, but Emma disappeared.

‘Till Death’ Ending Explained – Did Emma survive?

Safebreaker Jimmy informed his brother Bobby that to open the safe, they needed a combination and the fingerprint of the person who programmed the lock. Mark programmed the lock, and thus, they had Mark’s body for the fingerprint. However, the combination codes were still missing, and Emma was the only living person who knew it.

Bobby tracked down Emma. Bobby tried to injure her, but Jimmy stopped him from committing his gruesome act. Emma cracked a deal with Jimmy to let her go if she would tell them the codes.

As conversed by Mark to Bobby, the codes were the combination of the date Mark proposed Emma, i.e., “July 29th, 2011.” Bobby finally opened the safe, but to his disappointment, found a note that said, “The diamonds you seek lay close to her heart.” The riddle pointed at the diamond necklace on Emma’s neck, but Jimmy couldn’t unlock it.

Bobby proposed the idea to cut off Emma’s neck to procure the diamonds. But Jimmy resisted. A small brawl between the brothers leads to Jimmy’s Death. In the final chase and run sequence, Bobby tried to kill Emma outside the house.

The thin ice below them thawed, and Bobby cuffed to Mark’s body drowns into the ice water. However, he pulled Emma along with him, but she fortunately survived.

A breathless Emma, lying on the frozen ice bed, pulled off her wedding ring and rolled it into the water body. Her stance suggested that she ended her marriage and now wishes to embark on a new chapter in her life.
