The Landscape of the End is the seventy-third episode of the anime.
Tenma and Bonaparta arrive at the Hotel Bergbach. There, Wim appears and informs Tenma that Nina has come to the town and is looking for him. Bonaparta remembers Nina and starts crying when Tenma tells him that her name is now Nina Fortner.
Johan Liebert arrives to the hotel and greets Dr. Tenma. Bonaparta aims his gun at Johan, but is gunned down by Roberto who soon dies of his own injuries. Johan points his finger to his forehead, asking Tenma to shoot him. Nina and Dr. Gillen turn up and she asks Tenma not to shoot Johan, then she tells Johan that she forgives him. However Johan pulls a gun and threatens to kill Wim to force Tenma to shoot him. Herbert arrives, and seeing images of a horrible beast he shoots Johan in the head.
With the massacre now over, authorities rush into the town and attempt to determine what happened from statements by Dr. Gillen and Inspector Lunge. Herbert is taken away for questioning over his shooting of Johan. Just as Tenma is recognized and about to be arrested, an ambulance worker arrives asking for Tenma's assistance. Johan is still alive with a bullet wound to his brain, and Lunge suggests that Tenma is the only qualified neurosurgeon who can save him. Later, Tenma prepares to operate and save Johan again, just as he did in 1986.
