Sir William Gull (Ian Holm) is Jack the Ripper. After seemingly killing Mary Kelly (Heather Graham), the freemasons punish his immoral crimes by giving him a lobotomy. The last victim turns out to be the French woman. Abberline (Johnny Depp) knows this, and, in order to protect Mary from the freemasons who are watching Abberline, he never goes to her. He dies in the opium den from a combination of the opium and a broken heart.
