Re: Placement of Heart's "Barracuda"

Because the split-second we hear of the Heart song -- right before Silvio shuts the car off -- is an unintelligible female vocal shriek which sounds like a woman screaming, obviously alluding to Ade's situation. It's the kind of extremely darkly comic moment that Chase so consistently displays throughout the series, via editing and sound and image. Though here it's so dark as to be not "funny" at all, merely a clever choice upon further reflection.
