After killing his way through the latter's defenses, Chicken confronts Hühnermörder who implies that he killed the bionic poultry's wife and cooked her. After a brief fight, the scientist accidentally gets his hand strapped to the chair that Chicken was previously on. Chicken then crushes the scientist under TVs he was once forced to watch before discovering that his wife is still alive and well and frees her.
