You stop torching the rat and climb back into the vent.

You take the opposite path at the juncture in the ventilation shaft, popping back out in Howler's room.

You hear a voice booming from across the apartment. "Is someone here? This is the police! Come out slowly, we just want to talk!"

Given the power behind the officer's lungs, you're pretty sure it's a tube cop. If the streets had a college, the first lesson would be don't run from tube cops (they are faster than you).

The voice sounded like it was starting from the living room. You either need a plan or a damn good speech ready.

I think the generic "My friend is a drug addled idiot but isn't quite capable of what he's been accused of... alone." song and dance is appropriate here. Let's face it, Howley definitely wasn't doing whatever he was doing alone here.

Alternatively, back into the vents. If tube Cops are like Michelle from the first act, they won't fit.

Seconding this. Hopefully they don't want to risk shooting their POWERGUN in a building that could collapse on them. I would really like to avoid getting wanted, though.

Light up a level to keep yourself calm then light up the cop's eyes.

So that's four and a half for vents, one for fighting the cops, one half for telling the cops more or less the truth without too many details. Well, as of posting this anyways.

I'm the halfs because I listed both those options (sommat truthful song and dance and vents)
... though to be honest if we flee we might be getting shot on sight if they can get into the vents.

Woo, chapter 2 already !
Anyway, go back down and check if hanging near the candles lets you acquire some sweet Scent of Pumpkin Spice. Gotta keep our priorities straight.

If the tube cop wants to talk, they can totally do so from the vent's opening. Mention you've been anonymously hired to deal with a local mutated rat infestation problem.
You can throw the cop a bone to prove your good faith.
