The two fight their way through Syndicate security forces, and 47 is once again confronted by Smith. With Smith being impervious to bullets, 47 defeats Smith by electrocuting him. On the rooftop, 47 and Katia fight their way through the last of the Syndicate's security, but not before LeClerq escapes in a helicopter with Litvenko. Litvenko then detonates an explosive-rigged inhaler given to him by 47, ensuring that the Syndicate will not come after Katia. 47 calls Diana and confirms his first target (Le Clerq) has been eliminated.
