Police officer Duggan fires a warning shot of his own. Duggan reminds Manley that his authority does not extend outside the Rembrandt Apartments. Zorn would prefer it that the entire incident be simply forgotten. The Phantom Stranger confronts Zorn, regarding his past crimes. Zorn, acting as his own advocate, was able to destroy the credibility of the sole witness against him, thus garnering his freedom.
