Yet his story "Visiting Hours" is a very melancholy end for the character, as he's clearly been left a broken shell of a man by Hugo tampering with his mind, and he's regressed to a blubbering, almost childlike state of self-pity in Strange's absence; when he sees a hallucination of Strange, he's elated, and begs and pleads with it not to leave him upon learning it's not real. "Strange", in turn, calmly tells him how best to kill himself.]]
