Now that Fast & Furious 7 is back on track, fans can begin to wonder what they’re actually going to get in the story. While we all will be heading into the theaters with a heavy heart as we prepare to say goodbye to Paul Walker, this series exists to keep us on the edge of our seats with vehicular insanity, and the plot of Fast & Furious 7 shouldn’t detour too far from the formula.
If you stayed through the end credits of Fast & Furious 6, you saw the series, finally marry timelines with Tokyo Drift, which existed years AFTER some of the adventures Paul Walker and Vin Diesel were on. We saw the death of racer Han (Sung King), and we learned who killed him. It’s Jason Statham, playing Ian Shaw. He’s furious (pun intended) that Dom (Diesel) and his crew just killed Ian’s brother, Owen Shaw (played by Luke Evans). Ian makes a phone call to Dom as the credits roll, saying, “You don’t know me. You’re about to.” In the process, Fast & Furious 7 is completely set up as a revenge epic, where Dominic Toretto (Diesel), Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) and their crew have to contend with the sibling of the criminal they just eliminated. But who is coming along for the ride?
