Oh, whatever. It's just one more piece of utter stupidity in a season that's been full of them, and I'm gonna let it slide, because this episode has been pretty damn entertaining so far. In any event, as Dead Bobby and Dead Annie look on, aghast, Dead Whitman buzzes and zots on out of the foyer to join Our Intrepid Idiots in this week's crapped-out piece of automotive trash, and as Oblivious El Deano steers the car out into this evening's next CHOMP!-less commercial break, Dead Whitman gifts us all with one extremely wicked grin. DUN!
Stately Van Ness Manor. Aftermath. Dead Bobby beats himself up for a little while over stranding himself there in the manor until Dead Annie figuratively slaps him in the teeth and tells him to get over it. With Dead Whitman gone, she points out, they now have an opportunity to search the entire house, including the one room Dead Whitman normally "guards like Fort Knox." They pass through the locked door of said room to find themselves in a tastefully-appointed den, and they eventually make their way over to the fireplace, where the scorched bones of Dead Victoria still blaze merrily in the hearth. "That's how he took her out," super-smart Dead Annie instantly realizes, which leads to yet another discussion regarding the current location of everybody's remains, which leads to yet another discussion regarding the manor's past incarnations. In addition to housing a brothel, Dead Annie relates, Stately Van Ness Manor also functioned as a boarding house, a school and a speakeasy at various points in its sordid past, and goddamn, but there's got to be a hell of a lot of bodies tucked away in Dead Whitman's super-secret passageway by now. Dead Bobby picks up on the "speakeasy" thing, notes that speakeasies tended to have a variety of super-secret passageways at their disposal for the expected reasons and begins feeling around the mantel until he chances upon Dead Whitman's magical wall sconce. Deploying his newfound mad ghosting skillz, Dead Bobby yanks the thing down, and he and Dead Annie bounce into Dead Whitman's super-secret passageway to find -- among other things in various states of decay -- Dead Annie's corpse propped against the wall. Dead Annie ponders her rather photogenic earthly remains for second or so, then thinks to ask an excellent question regarding the ultimate disposition of spirits who get themselves "ghost-killed," as Dean put it earlier in the episode. Dead Bobby supposes they just vanish for good -- no Heaven, no Hell, just gone. Dead Annie agrees, but as neither of them know for certain, I wouldn't take their musings here as the last word on the matter. Especially because I'm all but certain the unquiet spirits of the world's human dead are going to figure prominently in the Leviathans' defeat during this season's finale.
