The Order

Dominic (Francesco Carnelutti) committed suicide but William Eden (Benno Furmann) ate his sins. Eden wants Alex (Heath Ledger) to become the nex Sin Eater because his 500 years of eating sins are almost up. Alex turns down his offer but Eden doesn't take "no" for an answer very well. Eden slits Mara's (Shannyn Sossoman) wrists and leaves her for dead. Alex finds her, and believing that suicide is a cardinal sin, performs the Sin Eater ritual. This saves her, but makes him a Sin Eater. Alex then, in a fit of rage, kills Eden, officially giving himself the "job" of Sin Eater.
Thanks, Nikki S and Mac the movie guy!
