Z End

And so we come to Oleg's final volley. In the middle of the match he had extended an olvie branch; now, at the end, he take a a bough.

A nice bit of visual jujitsu, here. Adam pulls a gun; Oleg reminds him that there are people here. Going for the jugular is to be expected in the final rounds of a bout, but it is the audience that ultimately determines the winner. Perhaps Oleg's appeal to common humnanity will sway the jury.

Observation: In flag semaphore, the position of the branches shown in Oleg's final image:

Corresponds to Z, the final letter of the alphabet. A fitting end to his remarkable run during this match.
