At the climax of Requiem of the Golden Witch, Clair and Willard have one final battle against each other after she finishes her story. Though Will was not the person she wanted to understand her, she accepts him to be the one that finally kills her. The battle consists of Will solving all four of Beatrice's games and her final question of "Who am I?". Willard's answers are all extremely vague and are mainly just extra hints for the reader to solve the murders on their own. The manga goes more in-depth however and shows Will's thoughts as he solves each murder which reveals the true way the murders were carried out.

Extra: Will comments on the riskiness of the game from the start and asks what would have happened if "the guy" wanted to see the dead face.
