Meeting Eli Gould
Allen meets the lawyer Eli Gould at a bar following the trial in which Gould was able to get Allen acquitted of pedophilic charges. Aware of Victor's long rap sheet for drug dealing and child molestation, Eli gives him his card in case he needs an additional criminal defense in the future before departing.
Meeting John Doe
Allen meets John Doe while John asks for something to "stop his headache", which Victor takes as code for wanting to buy drugs. They both go to Allen's apartment and John takes some painkillers.
Near death and Police Raid
John then drugs Allen and proceeds to tie him to the bed, before cutting off Allen's hand and taking pictures of the delinquent while he is lucid from the drugs. Doe then leaves him there to rot for a year, coming back occasionally to inject him with assorted drugs/antibiotics.
Allen is not found until a year later, still tied to the bed, by the police, and to their shock/horror, is still barely alive. It is revealed to Somerset and Mills by the doctors that recovery from his torture is all but impossible; besides being so physically devastated that shining a flashlight in his eyes would cause fatal shock, his brain has been rendered "mush" by inactivity and drug overload. He later dies offscreen from malnourishment (according to the novelization of the film).
- Apart from Tracy Mills, Theodore Allen is the only one of John Doe's victims who are seen alive.
