The rest are of the Operator symbol (an ellipse with an X through it), and rough sketches of the Operator itself and other humanoid figures. Spaces on the paper that aren't covered in drawings have been shaded in.For no reason apparent in the clip, Alex gets out of bed and grabs his camera. He walks to the staircase, turns off the light, and makes his way down the stairs to the venetian blinds. He points his camera through them but does not see anything. He walks into his office and checks through the blinds, but sees nothing unusual. As he leaves the office, the Operator can be seen on the right-hand side standing in front of the curtains.Alex looks through another set of blinds but still sees nothing. He heads back to the staircase, turns the lights back on, and walks up the stairs. Placing the camera on a red book on the table in front of his bed, Alex gets back into bed.

He tries to open a door but finds it locked. Just after that, he spots some blood drops dried on the floor and follows them to a bloodstained sink. Beside the sink are some bottles of pills—some of which he takes. As he turns to go back downstairs, he drops some of the drawings he has collected and picks them up, finding on the ground beside them a bullet casing. He takes that too.
