Jim accuses Edward of intentionally harming Kim, but Kim, fed up with Jim's jealousy, breaks up with him. Edward flees in a rage, destroying his works and scaring Esmeralda until he is calmed by a stray dog. Kim's parents set out to find Edward while Kim stays behind in case he returns. Edward does return to the Boggs home to find Kim there who asks him to hold her, but Edward fears he will hurt her.
Jim drives around in a drunken rage and nearly runs over Kevin, but Edward pushes Kevin to safety, inadvertently cutting him. This causes those witnessing the event to think that Edward is attacking Kevin and Jim tries attacking Edward. Edward defends himself, cutting Jim's arm before he flees to the mansion.
Kim races after Edward, while Jim obtains a handgun and follows Kim. In the mansion , Jim ambushes Edward and fights with him; Edward refuses to fight back until he sees Jim slap Kim as she attempts to intervene. Enraged, Edward stabs Jim in the stomach and pushes him from a window of the mansion, killing him.
Kim confesses her love to Edward and kisses him before departing. As the police and neighbors gather, Kim leads them to believe that Jim and Edward killed each other. The elderly woman finishes telling her granddaughter the story, revealing that she is Kim and saying that she never saw Edward again. She prefers not to visit him because decades have passed and she wants him to remember her as she was in her youth.
She thinks Edward is still alive, immortal because he is artificial, and because of the " snow " which Edward creates when carving ice sculptures.

The drawing depicted a thin, solemn man with long, sharp blades for fingers. Burton stated that he was often alone and had trouble retaining friendships. Burton was impressed with her short novel, First Born , which was "about an abortion that came back to life". Burton felt First Born had the same psychological elements he wanted to showcase in Edward Scissorhands. However, within a couple of months, Warner sold the film rights to 20th Century Fox. Burton originally wanted to make Scissorhands as a musical , feeling "it seemed big and operatic to me", but later dropped the idea.
He had the opportunity to do any film he wanted, but rather than fast track Warner Bros. Although Winona Ryder was the first cast member attached to the script,  Dianne Wiest was the first to sign on. A lot of questions came up". Though Burton was unfamiliar with Johnny Depp 's then-popular performance in 21 Jump Street , he had always been Burton's first choice. When he was sent the script, Depp "wept like a newborn" and immediately found personal and emotional connections with the story.
