At the concert, everything went wrong, and the audience booed him off stage for his horrible performance. The audience, including Spongebob and Patrick, have red eyes as fish normally do.

Then the camera cuts to Squidward shown sitting on his bed, sobbing with embarrassment with his head down. It was weird that the sound of crying was more like an actual human than Squidward.

The camera cuts again to show Squidward facing the camera, with the same red eyes as the audience. With blood dripping through it and the crying sound intensifies in the background. After the crying ends, a deep mysterious voice in the background says, “Do it!”

This was when Squidward was shown holding a shotgun inside his mouth. Within seconds, he fires a shot. The camera shows the bloody remains of Squidward lying on the bed before the episode ends. Squidward suicide is something we didn’t expect.
