The most likely real-world ending of Fifty Shades of Grey is fifty shades of black and blue.

Because, if audiences actually believe this, if they feel they are regularly being mis-sold or duped, then why does the trailer remain so incredibly popular? Why do millions of people search for, and download, new trailers every day?
