* BittersweetEnding: John, Lara and their son manage to escape and go to Colombia, but they will remain fugitives of U.S. justice (and thus unable to contact anybody they hold dear) for a long time to come, if not the rest of their lives.

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: A woman ''tries to jump off a moving car and her husband tries to hold onto her, making the car skid all over the road and spin like a top'', and aside from some swerving and angry honking, nobody on the road seems to care.

** Actually, no. Rather than try to prove her innocence, they just try to leave the country. John is also aware that if he is caught, he will go to prison as well.
