Events of John Wick: Chapter 3Edit
|“||Mr. Wick broke the rules. I trust you understand the repercussions if he survives.||”|
After Wick initially escapes from the assassins chasing after him, the Adjudicator visits Zero and instructs him to go after John.
Later, after Winston refuses to step down as manager of the Continental and John refuses to kill him, the Adjudicator has the Continental's status as a neutral area revoked and sends in Zero and teams of the High Table's most well-trained assassins to kill him. However, John and Charon manage to kill all of them. After the first wave of assassins has been slaughtered, the Adjudicator phones Winston and proposes a truce. The two meet on the rooftop of the Continental, where Winston refers to the successful defense of the Continental as evidence that he should stay in power. This persuades the Adjudicator, who reinstates the building as a neutral area. However, when John walks up onto the roof, the Adjudicator questions what will be done about him, and in response, Winston simply shoots John and lets him tumble off the roof and into an alleyway.
However, when the Adjudicator attempts to have John's body recovered, it is discovered that is has vanished as the Tick-Tock Man carried Wick away. Informing Winston of this, the Adjudicator warns him of severe consequences should John remain at large.
- The Adjudicator is the first main antagonist in a John Wick film not to die.
