Walter (a.k.a. superhero Rorschach) wears a burlap-like mask with constantly morphing inkblots suggestive of the namesake psychological test.

Laurie (a.k.a. superhero Silk Spectre II) recalls the death of a man who appeared to have tried to kill Adrian (a.k.a. superhero Ozymandias) in a conversation with Dan (a.k.a. superhero Nite Owl II): "... suicide pill... potassium cyanide... dead before he hit the ground." (1:31)

The prison psychiatrist administers the Rorschach test to superhero Rorschach. (1:38)

As destruction of the city begins the prison psychiatrist's briefcase falls open spilling inkblot cards on the pavement. (2:42)

Jon (a.k.a. superhero Dr. Manhattan) obliterates Walter, leaving only a symmetrical "blood blot" in the snow. (2:52)
