Chandler, the creator of the Gemini device in the Arctic lab, is kept well hidden by his staff. His psychological arguments are conducted through an audio speaker system wired throughout the underground lab, and his voice leads Dr. Paul Thorson back to the entry room. Corporal Gordon reminds him that if they don't get inside the inner room, "there won't be a world". Paul screams there has never been a problem he can't solve. It turns out that Chandler is individually telling each of the four people what they want to hear, just to keep Paul from getting inside. Corporal Gordon is armed with an ax when Paul takes aim with his gun.
