However, a plot twist is soon revealed: [[spoiler: [[TomatoInTheMirror David IS Charlie]]. Charlie formed when David caught his wife cheating on him. In one night, David, under the Charlie personality, murdered his wife and made it look like she committed suicide. Of course, this means that David has also murdered Elizabeth. After discovering that he is responsible, Charlie [[SplitPersonalityTakeover takes him over for good]], saying [[ThatManIsDead "It's okay. Daddy's gone now"]].]]
