V leaves Evey with the means to blow up parliament, then goes to complete his final, personal revenge against Chancellor Adam Sutler (q.v.) and Mr. Creedy. He gets Creedy to kill Sutler, and then threatens Creedy and the soldiers present. The soldiers open fire, but V doesn't die. He survived because he was wearing a metal breastplate, an homage to Clint Eastwood in a Fistful of Dollars, but is badly injured. He is fit enough though to kill all of the soldiers with his knives, and strangle Creedy before staggering back into the subway with his last bit of energy, where he dies in Evey’s arms.
To say he goes out with a bang is an understatement, as Evey puts him in the Tube train packed with explosives, which is destined for blowing up the Houses of Parliament.
