His crowning achievement of a long list of being waaaaay ahead of Steele & Holt involves having stolen [[spoiler:a diary from her childhood]] and using it to set them up for the final play: driving [[spoiler:Steele made enough to threaten his life in front of a police officer, whom Descoine had previously arranged to be at that spot at that time just to hear Steele threaten him]].
