Variations apply: sometimes the gunshot is a BaitAndSwitchGunshot. Sometimes it comes from a third character watching the struggle. Sometimes it's non-fatal. Sometimes [[BulletHolesAndRevelations it's not immediately obvious which of the two was shot]]. But a gun will ''always'' [[ChekhovsGun go off]]. Because that's [[RuleOfDrama dramatic]].

Theo has convinced Kerry that Jason is going to leave her to die, while Jason has just discovered that Kerry is his mother (she was a HumanPopsicle longer and wasn't aware that her baby was frozen as well under a different name). The suspicion rises, until Jason goes for his gun, only to find out that she had already taken it from his holster. After a brief struggle, there's a shot. After a flashback sequence, it's revealed that Kerry killed him]].
