With Nick having taken Andy with him, Jane finally arrives to confront him and the suitcase in tow. Andy still doesn't have all the pieces of the puzzle together. So far, she knows that Nick is a father and the leader of the terrorist group Army of the Changing World. After having killed her father and with the death of Andrew, her brother, Jane turned herself in, while coming clean to the cops about Nick's work.

They gave her a plea deal, where she spent a little over two years in jail and then was under witness protection. As Jane confronts Nick, he hands over the suitcase, which Andy is still not sure why it plays such a big role. Nick rips the suitcase apart to reveal a cassette which he plays. The cassette is proof that Jasper was also in on the plan to defame Martin at Oslo, allowing him to take over the company.

After being on the run for 30 years, Nick planned on using the tape to get himself off the FBI's wanted list. But Andy soon realizes that Nick was responsible for Charlie's death and in an attempt to escape, flings an oil lantern, causing the cabin to burn. Andy gets shot in a tussle for the tape, and Nick almost manages to escape, not before Jane goes after him with a gun. She threatens to kill him, but Andy stops her, just as law enforcement arrives.

With Nick in custody, Jane is ready to testify so that he ends up in prison and she never has to worry. However, she is concerned about what Nick has to say to the cops and convinces Jasper to find out, implying that he could ruin his political career. While their lives seem to settle back to normal, Andy is still troubled by her grandfather's death and the events of that fateful day in Oslo. She soon puts the pieces of the puzzle together -- Jane was the one who gave Juno the gun before she could attend the panel.

She told her how her father was trying to kill her unborn child, and Juno, who had already lost her husband and kids to Martin's malpractices, had honestly nothing to lose. However, while Jane carefully orchestrated this, Nick was the only one who knew about it, seeing that his plan all along was to defame Martin and nothing else. Andy, however, is unaware that her phone is being tapped when she relays this information over a call to Mike.

Jane later gets an ominous call from Jasper, revealing that there will be an announcement made and mentions that Nick had a lot to say about her. Jane seems aware of what is to come and leaves her house to go to the beach. Andy catches up with her, but there doesn't seem like much can be done. They walk away together, uncertain of their future.

'Pieces of Her' releases on Netflix on March 4, 2022.
