Hood Episode Four

Simms is a Runeseeker trapped in the Spirit World. Long ago, he became lost in the mist around Shadetale and stumbled through the gate into Gorsus, the very same gate used by the Hunter. He has had a very long time to contemplate his predicament and believes he has finally solved the riddle of realizing the impossible which will allow him to be free: Simms shoots himself in the head with the bullets the Hunter gives him. His body fades while the gun remains. Does this mean it worked? Does Simms find himself alive on the other side of the gate?
