after all

(no subject)

The crowd on cranky_editors is too rough for me, so I'm posting this grammar question over here where it's safer.

The line being commented on is "SEE, IF YOU'RE LUCKY, I'LL BE THE GUY WHO LET YOU LIVE!"

The question is whether it should be "let you live" or "lets you live".

I feel very comfortable with the original, but I'm having trouble explaining why. Advice?
