However will they possibly find him? The suspense: it's unbearable. Will it be the footprints? A call from the guy operating the searchlight? (Unless that’s a solar flare/.) Will it be the dogs? Will it be the dogs and the searchlight at the same time or the footprints and the searchlight? I have to know! I hope it’s not a two-parter!

By the way, if he’s pinned in the searchlight, then he’s facing the prison. So he got away, then ran back.
