the wall.  Alex can clearly see that the man's arm, originally embedded in

Suddenly a tattooed arm pulls at the torn metal of the door.  In a moment
Phaeton is stepping through.  At the same time Bongo is picking himself up. 
The man tries to pick himself up, hisses at Alex and then simply disappears.
