To make up for that mistake, he tears the Ace and gives her the torn pieces to hold on to. He then asks her which card she had picked. He then searches through the cards and gets the two of spades. He then places it on top of the deck. After doing this, he then mysteriously changes the two of spades and now the top card is the aces. Unbelievably, after Tyra looks at the torn two aces, it mysteriously had changed to her two of spades. She is dumbfounded. Blaine does not stop there; he takes the torn pieces of the Ace card and shows it to the audience. He then gives the pieces back to Tyra and tells her to squeeze them together tightly. After opening up her hands, she is shocked to find out that the torn card is now whole again.
