John Wick 4’s Post-Credits Teases Akira’s Revenge
Akira’s wrath comes full circle in John Wick 4‘s post-credits pain when Caine is spotted trying to give flowers to Mia who’s playing her violin outside in the public. Akira is keen to form a bond with her but the clip shows him wearing a hood and cleverly merging in, before approaching with a knife. The video ends with another brutal rivalry. It’s once again all about loss and tragedy, echoing the way John lost his wife. This time it’s a daughter that is robbed of a father who was a hero, loyal and loving dad.
It’s not fair to Akira However, it’s the ripple effect of John receiving help from Koji. She advised him of this. Koji was pretty stubborn but he gave in to his ego when he refused Caine’s offer to quit the fight. But, Akira doesn’t care about the circumstances, she just wants revenge. Akira can use her archery skills and knives to kill Caine. This could lead to Mia being able to follow her, reminding viewers of the cycle of violence we see in our world. Two young women driven by revenge could provide a feminist perspective to the Johnwick series, and fans will be amazed by the feats Mia can accomplish.
It’s more likely to make use of Caine as an ally and possibly want to aid Akira to eliminate the culprits that started it all which is the High Table. Since Koji broke the rules, the Table could be able to keep Akira at its beck and call determined to make her pay as she was the concierge. Caine might be driven by guilt and try to do the same thing John did to the council before Akira and he settled their differences. This could be an acknowledgment to John Wik 4 with John’s help so that they can finish their struggle for freedom from The Table. In this scenario, Caine could work to eliminate the secret society that will forever be watching him and Mia and, in the end,, fight one final time that will see him and Akira determine who will get the happy ending.
