Be careful, the following paragraphs contain spoilers on “Dying Can Wait”! If you don’t want to know anything, don’t read on!
A not-so-friendly agent …
The character of CIA agent Logan Ash, played on screen by American actor Billy Magnussen, is first presented as a particularly likeable young man, always with a smile on his face and an absolute fan of James Bond. But the one who accompanies Felix Leiter will quickly reveal his true face, that of a mole working on behalf of the terrible Lyutsifer Safin (Rami Malek).
The death of Felix Leiter
Felix Leiter is one of the recurring characters in the James Bond saga, along with Q, M and Moneypenny. After being absent from the credits of Skyfall and Specter, the CIA agent is back in To die can wait, again in the guise of actor Jeffrey Wright. A feature film in which he will lose his life under the eyes of his helpless friend Bond. The identity of the killer? Logan Ash, whom Leiter nevertheless thought to be his faithful partner.
M responsible for Safin’s biological weapon
In To die can wait, we learn that M, the big boss of MI6 played on the screen by Ralph Fiennes, bears his share of responsibility in the making of Safin’s biological weapon (Rami malek). Yet he was full of good intentions, believing that if he encoded the weapons with the DNA of his enemies, the collateral damage to MI6 agents would be less. For Bond, this is a novelty: he must not only face his real opponents but also make up for the mistakes made by his superior.
The homosexuality of Q
A scene from To die can wait seems to reveal the homosexuality of Q. In a scene from the feature film, the head of research and development of MI6, played by Ben Whishaw, sees James Bond and Moneypenny arrive at his house in an impromptu way. Surprised and somewhat annoyed by their arrival while he was preparing a visibly romantic dinner, he exclaims while referring to his “date”: “He will be there in 20 minutes!” A fast and subtle way to mark a real evolution in the franchise.
James Bond is a dad
This is one of the major revelations of To die can wait : James Bond is the father of a little blue-eyed girl, named Mathilde, from his relationship with Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux). The famous agent will officially know he is the father at the very end of the feature film, just before he dies.
James Bond … dies!
Because yes, it is THE big surprise of To die can wait, and an unprecedented moment in the history of the famous franchise: the producers dared to kill James Bond! At the end of the feature film, the agent, infected by a deadly virus, sacrifices himself, killed by the missiles which destroy the island serving as Safin’s lair. A strong moment which, it is obvious, has already provoked lively debates among fans of the cult saga.
