Jake is passing through town and pays a visit to Alan and Walden, informing them that he is no longer in the army and has gotten married to a Japanese dancer, and is the stepfather to her two children. He also mentions that Charlie (who is revealed to still be alive) sent him a check for $250,000 along with a note that simply states "I'm alive". Upon learning that Charlie is on the loose and is out to kill Alan and Walden, a scared Jake bids Alan, Walden, and Berta goodbye as he immediately leaves the beach house for the final time. Both his entrance and exit is followed by a long studio applause.
Cast members Marin Hinkle and Holland Taylor expressed sadness at Sheen's departure and personal problems.  Jon Cryer did not publicly comment on the matter and in response, Sheen called him "a turncoat, a traitor, [and] a troll" in an E! Online interview,  although he later issued a "half-apology" to Cryer for the remarks.  Sheen sued Lorre and Warner Bros. Television for $100 million, saying that he had filed the lawsuit on behalf of himself and Two and a Half Men' s cast and crew; however, only Sheen was named as a plaintiff in court documents.
