Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) went rogue to protect his son.

One of the biggest surprises from "F8" was the revelation that Dom had a son with Elena (Elsa Pataky).

He found out about the baby when the film's villain, a cyber terrorist named Cipher (Charlize Theron), used Dom's son as leverage so he could work for her.

To keep his son safe, Dom betrayed his family and stole an EMP and nuclear war codes for Cipher.

By the end of the movie, Dom saved his team and was reunited with his son.

At a rooftop barbecue in the final scene, Dom introduced everyone to his child, who he named Brian after late star Paul Walker's character, Brian O'Conner.

Cipher's plan was foiled, but she escaped.

Cipher had an ax to grind with Dom because he previously ruined two of her past business deals with Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) in "Furious 6" and Mose Jakande (Djimon Hounsou) in "Furious 7."

Cipher told Dom that he couldn't get away with destroying two of her teams without repercussions. Knowing that family is the most important thing to Dom, she used his child as leverage.

She wanted to launch nukes, but Dom's team infiltrated the military base located in Russia and took out her team.

However, Cipher still escaped by parachuting out of her plane. By the end of the movie, she was still on the loose and last tracked in Athens.

Cipher's unknown whereabouts pave the way for her return in "Fast and Furious 9," though this time around she'll be sporting a new hairdo.

Cipher killed Elena right in front of Dom.

Elena was first introduced to the franchise in "Fast Five" as a Diplomatic Security Service agent hired to help Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) track down Dom and Brian.

Elena and Dom had a brief romantic relationship, which ended when Dom learned that Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) was actually still alive.

In "F8," Elena told Dom that she realized she was pregnant just after he found out that Letty was alive. She was going to tell him when Dom and Letty returned from their honeymoon in Cuba, but then Cipher kidnapped Elena and their son.

Later in the movie, Cipher punished Dom for nearly ruining another of her missions. She had one of her men, Connor Rhodes (Kristofer Hivju), shoot and kill Elena.

Dom got his revenge by killing Rhodes near the end of the film.

Letty's relationship with Dom was tested, but they stayed together.

The movie opened with Letty and Dom enjoying their honeymoon in Cuba (plus a street race, naturally). It was cut short when Cipher cornered Dom and blackmailed him into working for her.

Even when Dom went rogue, Letty knew that he was still loyal to her and wouldn't shoot her in order to carry out one of Cipher's missions.

In the end, they reunited and Letty met Dom's son, who he called "the most important person" in his universe.

Roman Pearce's (Tyrese Gibson) ego was bruised after learning that he didn't make it into the top 10 of Interpol's most-wanted list.

As usual, Roman had various comedic moments in "F8."

Aside from finding out that he wasn't as big a threat to Interpol as the rest of the team, all of whom made it into the top 10, he continued unsuccessfully vying for the attention of the crew's hacker named Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel).

Tej's tech knowledge continued to be an asset to the team.

In "F8," Tej and Ramsey's combined computer skills helped the team pinpoint Dom's location after he initially betrayed them.

Later in the movie, Tej saved Roman after he and his Lamborghini almost sank under ice in Russia.

Ramsey's hacking skills were challenged by Cipher.

Cipher was known for being able to manipulate world systems, so much so that her digital identity was scrubbed every few seconds. She made Ramsey's program called God's Eye obsolete, making it more difficult for the team to track her.

At the end of the film, Roman asked Ramsey to pick between him and Tej. Ramsey said that she liked both of them, but stumped them after asking if they knew her last name.

"When you guys figure it out, I guess you can let me know," she said.

Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) joined the team to track down Dom and stop him.

Early in the movie, Hobbs ended up in jail after a failed mission with Dom's team. He was broken out and joined Dom's crew.

At the end of "F8," Hobbs' record was cleared and he was offered his old job back at the DSS. He declined so he could take a break and spend more time with his daughter.

Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) rescued Dom's son.

Deckard first appeared in the "Fast" saga during an end-credits scene of "Fast and Furious 6." He returned in "Furious 7," seeking revenge against Dom and his team for putting his brother, Owen, in a coma.

In "F8," he escaped prison and reluctantly worked with the team to take down Cipher, who he had previous beef with. Later, he and Owen snuck onto Cipher's plane (thanks to a tracking device planted by Dom).

In one of the movie's most entertaining scenes, Deckard retrieved Dom's son from Cipher's plane while simultaneously fending off attackers.

"F8" also lay the groundwork for "Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw," the spin-off movie released in 2019 that forced the titular characters to work together again. The film takes place before the events of "Fast and Furious 9."

The elusive Mr. Nobody (Kurt Russell) and his junior associate, Little Nobody (Scott Eastwood), assisted the team throughout the movie.

Mr. Nobody orchestrated Hobbs and Shaw's prison break and assembled the team when he learned that Dom was working with Cipher. He also gave the crew access to cars for their missions and gave Hobbs a clean slate.
