Can you please check these sentences? I'm unsure about the use of synonyms. Thank you.

1)Dr Jekyll creates a potion capable to release (or of realising) his evil side.
2) For this purpose, he uses a particular salt, adds it to other componenents and brings them to the boil. Once the ebullition has subsided (I need a synonym), he drinks the potion.
3) First,he suffers horrible agonies but then he experiences a sense of freedom in his increased weakdness. His evil side has always been dominated by the good and is therefore much less exercised.
4) Once Hyde, his evil side, is released, he achieves domination over (Can you say "he has a complete hold over"?) the Jekyll aspect, so that he is left in front of two choices.
5) He may either choose a life of crime and deprivity or the Jekyll aspect must eliminate Hyde by killing him. He eventually opts for the second choice.

    4) Once Hyde, his evil side, is released, he has a complete hold over the Jekyll aspect, so that he is left in front of two choices. [<~~I don't know what those last 6 words mean.]

    5) He may choose either a life of crime and depravity or the Jekyll aspect must eliminate Hyde by killing him. He eventually opts for the second choice.

    Be sure to compare yours and mine VERY CAREFULLY so you catch everything, including spaces, commas, spelling, etc.
