  • I'm better than all of the men I deal with because I'm a police inspector!
  • Anagnorisis
  • Javert's epiphany makes him realize his whole life's work has been unjust, even though he is completely against unjust things.

  • Javert makes the decision to spare Valjean and take his own life, and changes his fate.
  • Perepeteia
  • It is either Valjean or Javert who lives... I pick Valjean! He deserves to be spared.
  • Nemesis
  • Javert makes his fate committing suicide, and jumps in the river.
  • Catharsis
