Despite the restrictions onboard ship segregating the First and Third Class passengers, Rose enjoys several rendezvous with Jack over the next day or so, openly defying her mother and Caledon. On what would be her final night aboard the Titanic, she asks Jack — a gifted artist — to sketch a picture of her, nude and wearing the Heart of the Ocean. After narrowly escaping from Caledon's bodyguard/valet, Spicer Lovejoy, Rose and Jack take refuge in the baggage area deep within the Titanic, where they spontaneously consummate their relationship in the backseat of an automobile stored there. (A deleted scene from the film strongly suggests she was a virgin though this is only indicated by Caledon, and so may not actually be true. There really was an automobile, a 1908 Renault, in the cargo hold of the Titanic.) Spicer Lovejoy (1850 — 15 April 1912) was a fictional character in James Camerons 1997 blockbuster Titanic. ...

Soon after, the Titanic hits an iceberg and begins to sink. The second half of the film is crucial to Rose's character: It shows her standing up to her mother and her fiancé Caledon Hockley, and risking all to save Jack from the icy bowels of the ship (Jack having been left to drown belowdecks as the ship's brig starts to flood). After the ship finally goes under, she and Jack cling onto driftwood in hopes of being rescued, and Jack insists that Rose promise she will survive. Some time later she is alerted by a lone returning lifeboat under the command of 5th Officer Harold Lowe. She attempts to awaken Jack but discovers that he has succumbed to the cold and died. At first, she is resigned to lie there and die with him, but then she remembers the promise she made to Jack. Though she is heartbroken, she retrieves a nearby whistle and blows it for help, and the lifeboat comes back for her. After arriving in New York, she is believed to be dead by her family and Caledon. Now a free woman, she adopts the name Rose Dawson. Caledon Cal Nathan Hockley (1882 — 1929) is a fictional character, the villain of James Camerons 1997 blockbuster Titanic. ...

Rose lives the rest of her life doing the things that she and Jack talked about doing, like riding horses in Santa Monica, California and becoming a motion picture actress. Eventually, she marries and moves to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and starts a family. She later revealed that Caledon committed suicide after the Wall Street Crash of 1929.

In 1996, when she is 101 and living with her granddaughter, Lizzy Calvert, the portrait Jack sketched of her is discovered in the wreck of the Titanic. After contacting the recovery crew, Rose is invited (somewhat skeptically) to go out to the scene, where a search has been underway for the Heart of the Ocean. She tells them her story of having survived the wreck. That night, she walks to the back of the salvage ship and removes the Heart of the Ocean from her pocket. Long since thought to have gone down with the ship, the diamond was actually carried off the vessel by Rose, who didn't realize its presence until reaching New York City. She throws the diamond into the water, returning it to its proper resting place. (An alternate version of this scene was shot in which the head of the salvage team tries to convince her not to throw the diamond overboard, but ultimately she does anyway. This version is included on the 2005 DVD release.)

Later, Rose is seen lying peacefully in her bed with pictures of her life beside her. Images appear of her as a beautiful young woman back on the Titanic. Doors are opened for her as she enters the Grand Staircase, and she walks up the stairs, surrounded by many of the passengers and crew (except for Ruth, Cal, and Spicer Lovejoy ) who had died from the sinking of the ship, (Captain Edward J. Smith, Thomas Andrews, Tommy Ryan, Fabrizio De Rossi, etc). Jack is waiting, who turns and takes her hand; they kiss and the passengers applaud heartily. The film intentionally leaves it ambiguous as to whether this is a dream, or Rose has died quietly in her sleep. The last shot showing various characters who died on the ship, ending with Jack, makes this even more ambiguous. On the 2005-released DVD, director James Cameron comments that he did have in mind one of those options, but that he will never reveal which one is the truth, though it has been speculated by fans that Cameron himself does not know the answer.
