The End, part 2 is the second part of the last chapter of the story in Return of the Obra Dinn. In the narrative, it is the second memory presented to the player, and it reveals the fate of seaman Henry Brennan.

Brennan, thinking that the shells are in the captain's quarters, steps inside and demands the shells' whereabouts. Captain Witterel reveals that he threw the shells to the bottom of the sea. Brennan attacks Captain Witterel in disbelief and stabs him in the left shoulder with his handspike. In retaliation, Captain Witterel slashes Brennan's throat. Meanwhile, Walker jumps from the poop deck to the captain's quarters to ambush Captain Witterel.
