The Banker himself has deteriorated physically and emotionally. He begins to see how his attachment to money has brought only misery. He thinks he will be even less of a man by killing the lawyer. He is also scared of getting caught. The banker never totally gives up on the idea but the lawyer leaves before he needs to kill him.
