Manolo, Leandro, and Pedrito were all released from prison.

After Manolo is released from prison, he regrets losing the argument with Minerva about whether the girls should stay in Puerto Plata for the night. He becomes famous, and Leandro stays by his side until he goes up into the mountains trying to rally the people "when it all came down a second time." They accept amnesty, but they are shot when they come down from the mountains. Manolo has sent a seashell to his daughter Minou, but Dede does not give it to her until she finally asks directly, "Is Papi dead?"
