The Hangman: Understand that I am justice uncompromised by fools. You see, I understand how weak and frail women are. You are easy prey for the depraved minds that inhabit our city. But women need fear the world no more. Now they have their protecter in the guise of the avenging Hangman. I shall see to your safety by keeping you in my dungeon — for the rest of your natural life!
Jessica: Bound and gagged? I remember now — he called himself the Hangman. Something else too — he said he was going to protect me. But I don’t need protection.
