Plot: Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) is living the quiet life off the grid with Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and Brian his son, even tho them are aware that danger always lurks just over the peaceful horizon. This time, that threat forces Dom to confront the sins of his past to save those he loves most. His crew soon comes together to stop a world-shattering plot by the most skilled assassin and high-performance driver they've ever encountered - Jakob! Dom's forsaken brother.

This chapter was a transition from action/spy to action/sentimental because was necessary to go back into the Toretto's family history to re-direct the history line to what is going to be the end of the saga to introduce Dom's forsaken brother Jakob (John Cena). Overall the plot is direct and doesn't miss the point, it gives an overview of how Dom became who he is and why family is such an important thing. Taking into account the sad part of witnessing Jack Toretto's dead and the following separating the siblings. I Personally, think it was very successful to include the trip to space in such an unusual and funny way, it made the viewers distract from the sad part of the plot with lots of laughs.
