The Link tells Kelso to free him and then to write a full confession of his crimes. The Link calls Lita Munro and arranges to meet her. Munro's telephone line is being tapped by the police. They turn up at the rendezvous point and try to arrest him. He goes crazy, transforms (like the Hulk does but without ripping his clothes) and chases them off. When he has calmed down he tells Lita he doesn't want to see her again.
