People often say that the mission impossible stories are so accessible because you can watch any one of them, and it won't matter because the story isn't what's important. And yet, for this movie, we have a host of ContinuityNod as well as it being a clear and direct sequel to Rogue Nation. Ethan and his former wife have some closure, we get to see Solomon Lane show his meddle again, callbacks to the first MI with the room scenario, and an ending narration describing why the IMF will always be important. Not to mention this is the first villain who has [[ItsPersonal made it personal to destroy Ethan]] as well as accomplish bigger goals. Overall, all the components to say to longtime viewers of the series, "Thanks for watching.

[[WMG: Ethan and Ilsa are eventually going to hook up in a later film]]
The hints at a possible romance forming between them throughout ''Rogue Nation'' and ''Fallout'' have been quite obvious. Particularly in the latter movie where it's made clear that [[spoiler:Julia is now living a life with a new husband]].

[[spoiler:Lane was handed over ''alive'' to MI6, seething with despair and frustration at not having his revenge on Hunt, and heading back into the same situation he was in before he was broken out. Not only that, but all the Apostles bar Decoy!Lark (RIP) are still around and presumably still wanting to free Lane and destroy the world order. Lane is a good foil for Hunt in that he was once an agent like him, but became jaded, leading him to blame the system for the terrible things he did for his organisation, instead of himself.]]

[[spoiler:In ''Fallout'', he becomes suicidal and only wants to see Hunt suffer, after being pumped (read: tortured) for information by numerous governments. In his brief time free, he now knows firsthand that Ilsa and Ethan at the very least care for each other, and Ilsa and Benji defeated him and took him back into custody, further directly benefitting Ilsa, who gets to be welcomed back into the MI6 fold. Dude is now probably plotting to ruin not only Hunt's shit, but Ilsa's and Benji's too. Hunt is now free to go back to having nightmares about Lane, now starring Ilsa as well as Julia[[note]] who he hasn't stopped caring for just because she gave her blessing for him to move on, and let's be real, if anyone threatened her after this, like hell Ethan would just let that slide... [[/note]].]]


[[spoiler:Furthermore, just as Ethan realises he's free to possibly pursue a relationship with Ilsa, she returns to being a sanctioned member of MI6, not IMF. Not only this; she seems to be growing the same weakness Ethan has, the inability to see the bigger picture and put the needs of the many over the few. (Time will tell, though, as to whether this only extends to Hunt and friends -- she made it through two years deep undercover with the Syndicate, doing god only knows what to gain his trust; this points to her being able to make the hard choice.) Either one day, a mission of hers will put her at loggerheads with Ethan and/or his morality, or (more likely) a malicious third party will exploit the connection between the two agents to further their own objectives.]]

We know the dude's an adrenaline junkie and a fantastic stunt man, but hopefully the movie's darker and apparently more personal subject matter will mean we see Ethan Hunt in emotional turmoil and moral quandaries that show off Tom Cruise's acting range, like in ''MissionImpossibleIII''.

Since director [=Christopher McQuarrie=] has stated that this film will deal with "Ethan's past come back to haunt him" - what better part of his past than his mentor, who became a traitor?
