Michael Myers has managed to evade death for years within the Halloween franchise, but did the character finally perish for good in Halloween Ends?

This seems to be the million-dollar question on the minds of both fans who are preparing to see the film in theaters, just settling in to watch the movie on Peacock and even for those who have already seen the film — and for good reasons.

Across the many films in the franchise, there have been several occasions in which audiences were led to believe that Michael had been killed only for the character to return in a blaze of glory — literally.

So it’s only natural for fans to wonder if Halloween Ends finally brings with it the end of Michael Myers’ reign of terror or if the iconic villain lives to kill another day.

Warning: MAJOR spoilers for Halloween Ends ahead. 

Does Michael Myers die in Halloween Ends?

After countless brushes with death, Michael Myers finally dies in Halloween Ends at the hand of Laurie Strode who takes every step possible to make sure Michael does not come back from the dead this time around.

In the closing battle between the two characters, Laurie manages to pin Michael down to the kitchen island after stabbing him through his hands and essentially nailing him to the table. To make sure he can’t escape, she then pushes the refrigerator down onto his lower body trapping him on the table.

After unmasking him, Laurie proceeds to slit his throat but Michael isn’t going down without a fight. He manages to free his hand and begins strangling Laurie with his freed arm. It almost looks like he might succeed in killing her until Allyson shows up and literally snaps Michael’s arm to free Laurie from his grasp. Laurie then slits Michael’s wrist which seems to lead to his death.

Just to be safe though, Laurie and the town see to making sure there is no way for him to return the put his body through what appears to be some sort of meat or tree grinder.

Michael might have come back from the dead before, but there’s no way he survived going through the grinder after being fatally stabbed by Laurie.

Halloween Ends is streaming now on Peacock.
