Glass Onion: understand the ending of the film
In the second act of the film, we discover that Cassandra (Monáe) was killed at home, before the trip to Greece, and not on the island, as it seems. Who goes to the place, in fact, is her twin sister, Andi, who “invites” Blanc (Craig) to go along with her so that both investigate what happened to the girl.
As the duo suspected, the tycoon Miles (Norton) and the dysfunctional group of friends have Total involvement in Cassandra’s deathwho would be threatening to unmask them: Miles stole his business idea and kicked it out of his own company with the help of so-called “friends”.
In the end, we discover that the one who killed Cassandra was Miles, who poisoned her and fled. He also killed Duke (Bautista), because he saw him leaving the girl’s house and was blackmailing him. Finally, the rich guy still shot Andi (who just didn’t die because the bullet got stuck in his notebook).
The only evidence that could incriminate Miles was the napkin on which Cassandra wrote her business idea a long time ago. However, he burns the item. As a form of revenge, Andi uses the technology created by man to destroy and set fire to his luxurious home, detonating the most valuable object in the place: the painting of Monalisa.

As Andi himself explains: who would want to invest in a man whose technology has annihilated his own home and the most famous painting in the world? Thus, the character not only discovers the truth about her sister, but takes revenge on Miles and his friends, who now no longer have the protection of the tycoon.
