So we left off with the message that your Adversary is hiding in the last place you would ever look.
But, Jake does not heed this advice. He goes back to them. But he has to ask the question:
It looks like the heavy saturation of messages that were required for this movie, required Guy Ritchie to resort to a number of visual tricks in order to keep the general audience entertained.

The Devil here is being held down by his own man, while the assassin reawakens. It's worth noting that the Devil and the Lord are the most comedic characters in the film. To make fun of them is to see them for what they are.
You only get smarter by playing in a more sophisticated game.

But what matters is that giving it away hurts him, hurts Gold. Because Greed is gone, and with no greed, there can be no Gold, and without Gold, your artificial ego has no power to hold onto you anymore.
To be concluded...
