As shady and super wealthy Victor Ziegler says at one point, “If I told you their names I don’t think you’d sleep so well.” Also note the very title of the film is a reference to the 1%ers who know exactly what’s happening but don’t say a word about it. The fact that the main character is saved by Leonore from a "chorus of judges" is one of them. Bill is ready to cheat on his wife with Domino, but then his wife, Alice, calls and after lying to her, Bill probably feels guilty and decides to leave.

During the course of shooting Eyes Wide Shut, the director filmed 95 takes of Tom Cruise walking through a door.

Also to note: although Zeigler is also married, he clearly fusses over Bill's wife Alice when they arrive at his Christmas party at his house earlier in the film. Since he was going to pay Domino for her services, Bill gave her the money anyway, because he acknowledged he wasted Domino's time and probably lost her money that she could have gotten if she was in the street looking for another costumer this whole time. For those with their eyes open, there are plenty of money shots. Why did Jon Snow die? Edit, They were just random strangers. (He also liked the idea of Steve Martin.) As for the masks, Victor says "those weren't just ordinary people", implying that they may be politicians or other well-known people who can't have themselves discovered.On the other hand, if this is a real cult, rather than a bunch of play actors, then we can't even speculate on their motives.
