The first Fast and Furious film from 2001 had an alternative ending that many viewers did not know existed and defines much of what the current saga is.
In 2021 they will premiere the ninth installment of the saga, so the protagonists have gone through many increasingly unlikely situations. But the first Fast and Furious movie directed by Rob Cohen featured Dominic Toretto and Brian O’Conner, characters played by Vin Diesel and Paul walker, respectively. The alternative ending was never used. However, it set the tone for the future of the franchise.
Every time he released more installments of the franchise, Dom and Brian were more like brothers united by their past. There was an immense amount of loyalty between the two, but their relationship did not start that way. Brian met Dom while working as an undercover cop investigating a series of truck hijackings in the first Fast and Furious movie. He infiltrated the world of street racing and contacted Dom, before learning the truth about the crimes. After the first movie, Brian ended up leaving his old life behind and teaming up with Dom and his allies to take down drug traffickers, terrorists, and other global threats.
This is the alternative ending:
The alternate ending to the first Fast and Furious movie, known as "More Than Furious" (More than furious), it was included in the franchise's DVD collection. We can see Brian after the incident with Dom and revealed that Sergeant Tanner (Ted Levine) left him at Toretto's house. He found Mia Toretto (Jordana Brewster), Dom's younger sister, packing her things in hopes of walking away. Brian shared with her that he resigned from the Los Angeles police and wanted another chance in their relationship. She chimed in that it wouldn't be that simple between the two of them, but added that she now had plenty of time to figure it out.
The brief scene provided information about Brian's fate and everything we would see in the following films. So that in 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003), his character fled Los Angeles to Miami to avoid being prosecuted for letting Dom escape. He also set the tone for Brian's willingness to help the Toretto family, even if it meant breaking the law. He clearly maintained the connection to Mia even before they were officially back together in the Fast and Furious franchise.
