Montag, Granger and the other men watch the chase on TV. Granger predicts that they will find some random unfortunate guy to claim as Montag and arrest him. Sure enough this happens. Montag is shocked to see the Mechanical Hound hunt down and kill an innocent man. The announcer proclaims that Montag has been caught and killed, ending the search. The police, not wanting to lose face or the confidence of the people, have targeted a random citizen rather than admit they lost track of Montag.
