So, a few moments later, Jay's strapped to The Table Of Death, and almost immediately after the swords slam down and Jay emerges, triumphant, through the curtains, a piercing backstage scream cuts short the audience's ovation. Jay rushes behind the scenery to find... Charlie? Sprawled dead on the stage, his silver hair still as ten slitted wounds beneath his tuxedo shirt open up to ooze blood through the white fabric? "GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORE!" But Raoul, I thought Charlie was the bad guy? "Oh, do hush your silly self up and just wait for the shocking twist!"
Well, in that case, I'm going to skip through the next scene as it's simply more misdirection, this time centered on sure-to-be-blameless Vernon. During the commercial break and once Jay recovered from the shock of seeing his longtime friend (apparently) dead, he quickly dropped the charges against Our Intrepid Heroes, who now join him in the shabby hotel bar to confirm that they are telling him the truth, and that Vernon's the most likely suspect now that Charlie's (apparently) gone on to that great headlining gig in the sky. There's some sad-sack backstory regarding brotherlike relationships between Jay and his two friends -- and, indeed, between Charlie and Vernon themselves -- but that's not important right now because we've already left the shabby hotel bar to watch as Vernon's summoned from his room by means of a no-doubt duplicitous phone call placed by Jay on the boys' behalf, for no sooner has Vernon left than Sam and Dean break in to rifle through Vernon's belongings. Next!
