I know what he's trying to do. He wants to cut me up in pieces, drain the blood out of them and then... rearrange me like one of his puzzles. He's been playing with my life as he does with his victim's bodies, pushing and cutting and probing until I become whatever he wants me to be.
I think he wants a partner. The man I would be if I hadn't met Harry. The monster that boy who saw his mother die would have grown into.
He wants to cut the Code away from me, unleash the monster he wants.
But he's wrong. The Code was never about taming the monster. The Code was the monster's best weapon. There has never been a conflict inside me between Harry's lesson and my own taste for blood, not since a long time ago.
I am a monster. And I am a cop's son. I will guide these cops to where I know he's taking her, and with their help I will kill him.
By the Code.
There's not a part of me who doubts this.
