The most commonly viewed climax is the point when Lennie accidentally kills Curley’s wife in the barn.

The most commonly viewed resolution to the story is when George finds Lennie in the clearing and, while retelling the story of life on their farm, shoots him in the back of the head, saving him from certain punishment for the death of Curly's wife.
