It's a tense shootout as Vaughn calls in Reynolds, threatening to rat him out if he doesn't show. Meanwhile, Bell tracks Reyes to Leonard's secret apartment and finds them both. Reyes has Leonard tied up but still alive. He says he couldn't let Leonard hurt any more kids -- and also that Vaughn still comes to this place to be with Leonard. Oh, and Vaughn plans to go out in a \"blaze of glory.\" Just then, Stabler's backup arrives. Stabler shoots Vaughn in the chest but he's wearing a bulletproof vest.
As Stabler and Whelan moved in on Vaughn, he called Reynolds to say that if he was caught, he was going to give Reynolds up. Across town, Bell arrived at the apartment to find Reyes with a handcuffed but alive Leonard. It turned out Leonard and Vaughn were still carrying out their relationship, and Vaughn was ready to go out in a blaze of glory.
No official profile of Battle was given. It is known that he is a paranoid narcissist with Hero Syndrome (described as being related to Angel of Death Syndrome) and thus has a great need for praise and respect. He would gun people down and call for help, making him appear to be a hero who saved their lives. Even if they died, Battle would still become a hero, being the first one to arrive on the scene. He also displays a great amount of confidence, remaining so even as things begin to go wrong for him. His attempts to cover his tracks became increasingly bolder, and if he failed, it would be his intention to die in a blaze of glory. 59ce067264
