These scenes from the past are due to the entrance of Jakob (John Cena), Dominic’s brother (Vin Diesel) and the main antagonist of this latest installment of the saga. The filmmakers decided not to use the recourse to rejuvenate the actors and turned to other film talents to portray the young stage of these main characters.


Mr. Nobody is dead?

The events of “F9” were started by Mr. Nobody’s call for help. As Dom’s team surveyed the plane crash site, there was no sign of him. Since his remains were not recovered, it is likely that he is still alive, only waiting to return when the time is right.

It was also revealed that the character not only helped Han prepare for Deckard’s assassination attempt in Tokyo, but also kept his survival a secret for years, including from Dom and his friends in Japan. This shows that Mr. Nobody is capable of faking deaths, even his own, if it is a question of safety.

Will Jakob Toretto return?

Jakob established himself as the main villain of “F9,” with his complicated dynamic with Dom as the central conflict of the film; However, after Cipher successfully manipulated Otto into betraying him, the youngest of the Torettos found himself without an ally in the middle of a dangerous car chase.

Without even a proper conversation about his ugly past, Dom instinctively knew he needed to help him. Together, they were able to stop the plan to use Ares and in the end, the protagonist helps his brother escape. While the relationship is not yet fully healed, at least they no longer despise each other. This opens the possibility of seeing Jakob back and being part of the team.

How did Han survive?

Aside from Dom and Jakob’s fight, another big talking point on “F9” was the reveal that Han is still alive. The character is presumed dead for several years, after Deckard Shaw planned his fatal accident in Tokyo. Naturally, everyone was interested in how he survived; Han revealed that Mr. Nobody helped him fake his death and kept it hidden to keep him safe.

But, while the flashbacks showed him and Mr. Nobody watching the tragedy unfold, they did not show Han escaping the car seconds before the explosion. He also didn’t go into detail about how exactly they carried out the ruse, and still leaves that as a big question down the road.
