Even though Steven was acquitted, he learns that a steep price has been paid. People see him differently now, he sees himself differently. Is he innocent, a victim a monster...? “When Miss O’Brien looked at me, after we had won the case, what did she see that caused her to turn away?” Steve lacks identity and is terrified that others, like Miss Obrien, really do see a monster.
