Ben starts to get a funny feeling about Paul, not least when Paul stops him talking to a prisoner who was about to spill the beans ... and soon ends up dead, killed by Cassius's MO of garrotting.
Ben revisits the files from previous murders - where he sees Paul's face in the crowd on every crime scene photograph. Meanwhile Paul visit's Ben's home, and poses for an innocent picture with his wife, that he forwards as a threat in case he goes public.
Soon enough though, the whereabouts of Brutus gets out - the man who 'made' Cassius by murdering his family. Ben takes pity on Paul when he sees that he's just an average man bent on revenge, with a fancy watch, and helps him double-team on Brutus.
Brutus comes out shooting from his hideout, and Ben is cornered. Paul saves his life, but is fatally wounded. He fights with Brutus and manages to do his WWF finishing move with the watch for a quick end to the other killer.
As Paul passes away, Ben has a decision to make to inform the authorities or keep Paul's legacy intact.
