Phase III:Falling Action
After a while Alex finds out that every way he goes he ends up where he started. He hears laughter and a voice but not a person who tells him the truth of the maze and that Alex may never leave because if he continues to try it will get harder and harder to overcome. The only way he can is to use his powers, but Alex refuses angering the shapeshifter.
Phase III: Resolution or Escape
Alex continues to push through the maze only to be stopped by multiple obstacles because the thing that is keeping him trapped can change form. Meaning he can become people who Alex knows and it causes him to go through a dilemma, although they are not really them it just seems to feel so real.
Alex meets a figure who does not feel like the shapeshifter and tells him that there are clues hidden in the maze that can help him with escape. But the way to get these clues is to play along with the "games" of the shapeshifter.
