Hovstad: "It is a natural law; every animal must fight for its own livelihood."
All the subtle power plays that have been driving the play have descended into chaos. When Hovstad and Aslaksen mistakenly think the Doctor's whole crusaded has been about trying to gain control of the Baths, they attempt to get in on it. The Doctor has been backed into a corner by the powers that be one too many times, and seizes control the only way he has left: brute force.
