One assassin seemingly kills Lupin but it turns out it was just a filter to make it look like such. The "assassin" was just Jigen helping to fake his death and the drone that captured the footage was under Ami's control the whole time. After which Lupin, Goemon and Jigen easily take care of the ringleaders and shut down the dark net. To add insult to injury, Fujiko ends up with all their money due to betting in their dead pool from the assassin game on who would "kill" Lupin.
