Bartok Industries security guard Hargis is assigned to help Scorby protect Bay 17 (and Bartok!) during Martin's rampage. After Martin smashes through an observation window, Hargis tries to shoot him from over by the stairs, but Beth Logan (whom Bartok was holding hostage) stops him. The two struggle and Hargis' hip bumps into the call button for the lab's freight elevator. Martin, who, despite being a mutant fly monster, still loves his girlfriend, comes to Beth's rescue. He pulls her away from the guard and knocks Hargis beneath the descending elevator. Despite his best (feeble) efforts to get out from under it in time, poor Hargis winds up getting crushed.
