But things got even more perplexing for Extraction viewers as they seem to observe Rake in the final seconds of the movie. The kid which he saved is shown swimming in his school. Interestingly, a Rake-sized figure of a man appears to lurk in the background. A blurry shot of the man seems to have convinced viewers that Tyler Rake is indeed alive.

There is a belief among most people that Rake is indeed alive, as shown in the final sequence of the movie. However, there has not been any official statement from either the director or Netflix regarding the rumors. An action hero is seldom killed off in a movie, and certainly not in the way as shown in Extraction.
