Mr. Orange was shot and Mr. White did everything to save him. He could have left him for dead, but he risked his own life to get him to the warehouse. He even defended him to others, only to learn that Mr. Orange was the undercover cop and that it was Mr. White who ended up being betrayed for that salutary moment.

It all showed how dangerous he was. In the end, however, he faced a two-person gun robbing a restaurant, and he showed compassion in his healthiest moment. Jules was ready to leave the business and he offered the two a chance to leave alive if they left the briefcase behind. It was the only mercy he showed in the movie.
