But Lao betrays him -and kills Wu Han, Indy's friend, and then poisons Indy to get both the remains and the diamond. Indy fights back and kills Lao's son Chen. Indy escapes the club and gets the antidote with Lao chasing after him. Indy drives away with Willie Scott - a singer at the club - and Short Round. With Lao and the other gangsters shooting at him and him shooting back. Indy unknowingly escapes on a plane owned by Lao Che and tries to crash it into a mountain.
