Can you believe that I didn't - at least consciously - think of the Terminator until you mentioned him?

That the robot should have a molten stuff related final fate was already decided at this point, even! (Well, that is a common trope, after all.)

BTW, a rejected alternate possibility to end this fight:
Ruby-Ann somehow utilizes a gas-fueled streetlight to blow up the robot!
However, the fact that I couldn't figure out the "somehow" in a not all too suspension of disbelieve breaking way was precisely the reason why this got rejected.

The robot hand isn't doing any rude gestures either, though.
So... success?

Since it's the 1920s, I thought of this robot as being a comparably primitive A.I....

Try to prove otherwise! ;-)

(Especially since the only witness just got molten down.)
