Warning: Possible spoilers ahead for the season premiere of "Two and a Half Men."
"Two and a Half Men" won't return until Sept. 19, but details about the premiere have been leaking out for some time.
We already heard that the first episode begins with the funeral of Charlie Sheen's character, Charlie Harper, and that only his bowling shirt is left to bury.
But now TMZ.com has reported that Sheen's death is bloody and comes at the hands of a woman.
The site quotes sources who attended last week's taping of the season premiere. They report that Rose (Melanie Lynskey), the neighbor/stalker who flew to Paris with Charlie last season, found him in the shower with another woman. Shortly after that, he mysteriously "slipped" and fell in front of a Paris subway train. In other words, she helped the infamous cheater "slip."
The term "meat explosion" was used to describe his demise and thus the lack of an open-casket funeral. Rose doesn't appear to have been punished for the push, as she is allowed to speak at the funeral and relate what happened.
We don't know if this is actually how Sheen's character is written off -- some shows have been known to film more than one ending in order to keep the real one secret. But we'll say this, it sure sounds plausible. Death at the hands of a cheated-upon woman, and death so bloody that Charlie Sheen can't be written back into the show? Sounds like show creator Chuck Lorre got his revenge after all. Rest in pieces, Charlie Harper.
