Homeless people are having their eyes cut out, and Stone believes that one of the escapees is responsible. Investigating the crime scene, he finds a clue that leads him to an escapee - Martin Benedict, a World War 2 Nazi collaborator. Stone tracks down Benedict, who manages to escape, after passing up a chance to send Ezekiel back to Hell.
Despite the Devil's insistence, Stone investigates further and determines that Benedict has been playing the role of a hidden Guardian Angel to the community. He finds out that the murders are merely the result of a human killer who sells the eyes on the black market as organs, and that Benedict has truly repented of his crimes. Stone refuses to send the reformed man back to Hell, but Benedict understands that if Ezekiel fails, he will have to go back. Benedict insists that Stone send him back, which he does, and Martin disappears in a blaze of light, subtly different from the usual "down to Hell" effect. A furious Devil asserts that he won this time, but Stone knows better.
