Added DiffLines:

* NobleDemon: If Loren is to be taken at his word, [[spoiler: he's going to face the courts willingly after killing Annabelle. Granted, he's leaving out that he ''intentionally'' killed her, but it would have been much easier for him to make Nora look crazy and simply let everyone think Annabelle vanished.]]

[[spoiler: The fourth one is scared to death during the course of the party. She was a GoldDigger planning to murder Loren for his money, however, casting an unsavory light on the intentions of the first three.]]
** In retrospect however [[spoiler: We can't be sure that his first three wives did die under such mysterious circumstances, since the person who described them was trying to create an alibi for Loren's eventual demise.]]

** In Nora's defense, would you be willing to pick up a severed head and show it to everyone? Lance at least has the credit of not finding it by accident like Nora did and ''knowing'' it was there first.
