He is called in by the police, to watch Andy Barclay as he is interviewed by two detectives. As they ask questions about the murder scenes that he was found at, he confronts Chucky, begging him to say something. As he shakes Chucky, all he does is reapet the doll lines. Now scared, Andy rushes to his mother, Karen, telling her he is doing it on purpose, and said Chucky told him he would kill him if he ever told anyone about him. Ardmore, watching from behind the glass, finally announces his presence. After seeing more than enough, he suggests Andy stay a few days at the psychiatric ward. Having no real choice, Karen hands her son over.
Later on in the movie, Andy looks out his cell, hears Chucky crawling up the stairs and tries calling Ardmore for help. Thinking he's very troubled, Ardmore sympathetically puts his hands over Andy's, but quickly leaves to get assistance. Chucky manages to get into Andy's cell, but discovers Andy had escaped. After spotting Andy escaping, Ardmore orders his guards to chase him. Andy finds his way downstairs and into an operating room, followed by Chucky. After Chucky jumps and knocks Andy down, he picks up a scalpel and prepares to defend himself.
Andy is terrified when he is seized by Ardmore, who puts him into bed. He tries to give Andy a sedative, despite Andy's claims that Chucky is still in the room and will kill him too. Chucky stabs Ardmore in the back of his leg with a scalpel, causing him to fall to the floor. Chucky picks up a helmet, which is attached to an electroshock therapy machine, and straps it on his head. Chucky activates the machine, shocking Ardmore to death as Andy looks on in horror. The police later discover the aftermath of Ardmore's death and Mike Norris' parter, Jack Santos informs Karen that he believes Andy murdered Ardmore while escaping.
