   During the riot, Big Figure arrives at Rorschach's cell and Lawrence has an arc welder with him. The intend on cutting the bars with it. Rorschach gets him to put his arms in and he ties them there. Mike then slits his throat so they can get through. After they cut the lock, Rorschach stands on his bunk and breaks the toilet so the water spills out. The bare wire of the arc welder causes Mike to be electrocuted. They have a circular saw. They use it to cut off Lawrence's arms so they can cut the lock. Mike enters the room and Rorschach throws him down and his head hits the toilet breaking it. The water hits a bare wire from the light and electrocutes Mike.
   When Moloch returns to his apartment after Blake's funeral, Rorschach is hiding in his fridge and burst out and tackles him. He opens the fridge and finds a note that says, "Behind you" and Rorschach slams him into the fridge. Then he tackles him.

   Jon and Janey are in the Bestiary when Jon remembers that he left her broken watch in his lab coat in the Intrinsic Field Chamber. He gets locked inside and Dr. Glass tells him he can't let him out before he is blown to pieces. Wally, Jon and Janey are all leaving the IF Chamber, when Jon remembers that he left his watch in there. He gets locked in and it is Wally who tells him he is locked in.
