The reason for the roughish exit may differ according to the situation: eluding an ex-partner, escaping before being enveloped in a full-blown blackout, evading a cumbersome event, dashing away because the walls are melting and the ceiling is changing colors, etc. The darkman often attempts this foolish exit with a head full of alcohol and/or chemicals, although there are many exceptions to this rule.
