When Will realizes that the one thing both the Leeds and the Jacobi family had in common is that their home videos were processed by Chromalux, he provides the Chromalux manager with a description of what the killer might look like. The manager recognizes him as Francis "D" Dolarhyde, their manager of Technical Services. At the same time, D sees Will talking to his boss and realizes that the FBI is onto him, so he runs to Reba's house where he finds her just returning from a date with co-worker Ralph Mandy (Frank Whaley). Feeling betrayed by Reba, D kills Mandy, kidnaps Reba, and takes both of them to his house, which he sets on fire intending to kill Reba in order to keep the Red Dragon from taking her. He then aims a shotgun at Reba but can't pull the trigger, so he turns the gun on himself, spraying Reba with blood. Meanwhile, Will and a large squad of FBI agents and police are racing to D's house. They arrive to find the house in flames. Reba informs them that D's body is in the house. A week or two later, Will, his wife Molly (Mary-Louise Parker), and their son Josh (Tyler Patrick Jones) are lounging on the dock, having returned to their house in Florida. Josh goes inside to get the fixings for s'mores. When Josh doesn't return, Will goes looking for him. He sees that all the mirrors have been smashed and finds D holding Josh at knifepoint. Turns out that the burnt remains found in the house belonged to Ralph Mandy, not to D. Will notices that his son has wet his pants and remembers reading in D's journal how his grandmother would berate him for the same. Will begins to yell at Josh in the same manner, but D takes it personally and lunges at Will. Will puts a knife in D's thigh, then he and Josh hide in a bedroom. Will gets his gun out of the closet just as Molly comes looking for them. Peeking through the space under the door, Will can see D sneaking up behind Molly. Will yells for Molly to get down. When Molly drops to the floor, Will fires through the door, hitting D several times as D also fires on him. With both D and Will down, Molly runs to Will, who tells her to take his gun and shoot D. In the final scenes some months later, Hannibal Lector is writing a letter to Will, who has recuperated from the shooting and is out sailing with his wife and son. As Lector closes his letter, Dr Chilton informs him that there is a pretty female FBI agent waiting to talk with him. "What is her name?", Hannibal asks.
