Subject: What is that gun doing there?

IT WAS MS. JONE's GUN
Do you remember the gun which Harry tried to reach for while Ms. Jones was
strangling Harry on the bed. As we probably already know, he fails to get it
but manages to escape from her stranglehold by some other way. When I
rewatched the previous episode (3/28) and this episode (4/4) in sequence, I
noticed that it was Ms. Jones who placed that gun on the sidetable just before
she slipped into bed. In fact, she appeared to be most particular with the way
the gun was "arranged" on the sidetable (as if to make sure that it can be
conveniently grabbed from the bed) or was I just imagining it?
VCR JOCKS ALERT
I also observed some possibly sloppy editing during this scene. When she
bends over Harry for the first time and bends back up, the spaghetti strap of
her lingerie falls off her right shoulder. On a succeeding cut, the strap is
back up. Here's another one. If you watch the strangling closely, in one clip,
you will notice Ms. Jones thumb caught around the "string thing" as she
strangles him but in a succeeding clip it is not.
THE LIQUID WORKS BOTH WAYS
One final note. Most have posted that Harry saw Ms. Jones as Josie after
she applied that liquid to his lips. Shouldn't it work both ways? When she
applied the liquid to her own lips, could she have seen Harry as someone else
and was so horrified that she unexpectedly decides to strangle him.
