The second is that of one of his professors who, after class, reproaches him for his behavior and forces him to write 50 times: "I don't have to behave like this". As soon as she turns her back to Maxwell, he kills her with the inevitable silver hammer. Following this, Maxwell is then arrested. During the court hearing, while Rose and Valerie, two Maxwell admirers, try in vain to exonerate him, the judge pronounces the verdict that condemns him, but, as soon as he finishes speaking, his head is smashed by Maxwell and his hammer. silver.
