In fact, they both got divorced in the beginning, but towards the end they somehow meet again. After solving all the clues and many struggles, they were only able to exit the escape room because all other participants had already passed away. When they left, they discovered themselves in the restaurant bathroom.

When they tried to unlock the car, they found that another lock appeared in the car, directly indicating that the game is not over yet. They will have to re-enter the escape room and solve all the clues and face it all again. Generally they got stuck in the course of a never ending game, and they can never escape the game of that scary mansion. With this, this film ultimately gives up a really illogical ending that was not understood by anyone.
