When Verbal finishes his story, Kujan eventually realises that it was Dean Keaton who was Keyeser Soze. Verbal, Shocked, is asked to testify against Keaton. He refuses, and limps his way out the door, sobbing and crying. Dissapointed Kujan drinks coffee in front of the message board in the office - suddenly, he freezes, shocked, and drops his coffee mug (it breaks). When looking at the message board, Kujan realised that Verbal's story, from the beginning to the end, was completely made-up, mastermind, when Verbal first gazed at the board. Each name from the story, Such as Redfoot, Bugs Marylin and others were actually a memo or a page appearing on the board. The "Finest Taxi Service", The line-up, the murders... everything. Kujan looks down to the broken cup, and reads Soze's Lawyer name from the cup's manufacturer - "KOBAYASHI PORCELAIN". Kujan rushes outside to capture Verbal, as an eyewitness sketch of Keyeser Soze arrives at the station. The sketch perfectly resembles...Verbal. Outside, Verbal limps his way through the crowded street, when suddenly his foot straightens and his 3 "Paralyzed" fingers come to life. He ignites a cigarette and enters the limouzine where his lawyer, "KOBAYASHI", picks him up. As Verbal's car disappears on the Horizon, Kujan stands in the street, frantically searches for Verbals. "The Greates trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist." says Verbal's Voice over as the screen turns black - "And like that...He's Gone."
Question: It is clear from the last scene that Kobayashi was not a made up character just his name, but what would have happened if McManus had killed him in the building? Surely that was not part of the plan. Also, was it Verbal at the start that killed Keaton? I saw the killer had a gold lighter, which may or may not be connected to the items Verbal later picked up upon leaving the police station. And if it was Verbal, then why didn't Keaton look for an exclamation because wouldn't Verbal have fooled them also with his "act".Did Verbal kill the other usual suspects?Eimear
