Beth wakes up the next morning with a hazy recollection of the previous night and discovers Kate has vanished. She asks Zain, a Syrian cab driver, for assistance in finding Kate.

The Weekend Away Ending

Who Killed Kate at the End of ‘The Weekend Away’ Movie And Why?

When Beth notices that Kate’s complaint, like her initial missing person complaint, was not documented at the police station, she suspects Pavic is the killer.

When Beth sees the registration plate on Pavic’s car, which matches the plate she saw in Sebastian’s video, she confirms her suspicions.

While Kovac and Pavic pursue Beth and Zain in an attempt to apprehend them, Zain persuades Kovac that Pavic is complicit in the murder, and before Kovac can intervene, Pavic trips over a stone and dies.

Pavic’s previous misbehaviours toward women, as well as CCTV evidence showing a man beating Kate, causing her to tumble into the river and drown, led Kovac to conclude Pavic was the killer.

Beth, meanwhile, returns to London and begins a new life apart from Rob. Beth discovers a bead of the necklace she gave to Kate in Rob’s jacket pocket one day as she departs Aster with her father.

She realises that the assailant is Rob, not Pavic. Rob is concerned about Beth’s trip to Croatia to spend time with Kate. He is nervous as he wonders if Kate will tell Beth about her affair.

Kate runs into Rob when she returns from the police station after dismissing Pavic’s advances. He keeps asking her if she has already told Beth about their romance. Rob asks her not to ruin her friend’s life by sharing anything about them until he finds she hasn’t.

When Kate tells Rob that she is going, to be honest from now on, he becomes enraged, and the two fight. Rob slaps Kate, causing her to misstep and tumble to the stones, where she smacks her head. Kate falls into the river and drowns, resulting in her death.

Rob’s actions result in Kate’s death, despite the fact that he had no intention of doing so. Rob departs the shoreline, believing Kate is dead. Kate, on the other hand, was alive when she fell into the river and drowned.

Rob’s mistaken belief that Kate drowned as a result of a head bang prevents him from saving her.

Did Kate Love Rob

Did Kate have feelings for Rob? Do They Love Each Other?

Kate didn’t care for Rob. When Rob realises Beth is aware of his role in Kate’s death, he begins to confess. He understands he can’t reveal the truth because he’s attempting to mend fences with Beth.

As a result, he fabricates a storey claiming that Kate forced him to leave Beth, sparking a conflict when he made it obvious to Kate that he cannot abandon his wife. Rob, on the other hand, was the one who wanted to divorce Beth and move in with Kate.

Kate makes it obvious to Rob on the night of her death that whatever transpired between them was a rebound fling and the biggest mistake of her life.

Rob feels saddened by Kate’s assurance that he means nothing to her. He’s afraid of losing both Kate and Beth, so he tells her not to tell Beth anything so that his marriage can continue even if she doesn’t want him.

Instead of telling the truth, Rob tries to deceive Beth by claiming that Kate wanted him and that he refused her for Beth’s sake. Despite Rob’s best efforts, Beth knows that he can no longer be trusted and walks away from him as the cops arrive to arrest him.
