[Jeff and Halden find Timothy on a crucifix-like device; Jeff plays a tape that Timothy is wearing]
Tape: Hello, Jeff. If you are listening to this, then that means the confrontation you have so long dreamed of is finally unfolding.
Timothy Young: Do something!
Tape: In your head, he is a cipher, a symbol of your life changing--a symbol of death. I present him to you now as a simple human being. His name is Timothy Young. He's 27 years old, a medical student with a mother and a father, just like you. A man whose life also changed the day your son died.
[Brief flashback of Jeff's sons' death]
Tape: That day, he made a terrible mistake. You believed he didn't pay for that mistake and now is your chance to make him pay. The device Timothy is strapped to is my personal favorite. I call it The Rack. [Timothy screams] The human body is a miraculous creation. Ever wonder how far the arm can twist? [Jeff gives an interested look] This device is going to start twisting. There is a chance he might live, though, with your help.
Timothy: Please...
Tape: To your right is a box.
Timothy: Why?
Tape: At the back of the box is a key. It's tied to the trigger of a shotgun. The question you have to ask yourself is this: Are you willing...
Timothy: Have mercy!
Tape: ... to take a bullet for the man who killed your son? Does "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" apply here, Jeff? Make your choice.
