"You're So Vein", Way to Die #277, is the fourth death featured in the Season One finale "I See Dead People (And They're Cracking Me Up)", which aired on April 5, 2009.


It was a special day for the man behind the blinds. His name was Scott Randall and this was the day he was scheduled to die by a lethal injection. Randall was bad to the bone. 3 people died at his hands and you don't want to know how. The families of his victims were there to make sure he got what was coming. A too good actor when he wasn't killing anyone, Randall relished his final role.

A lethal injection involves a number of drugs.The first was sodium pentothal, which was supposed to knock the inmate out, and then potassium chloride finishes him off. But there was a hinch. Even with enough drugs in his system to drop out Rhino, Randall's heart didn't skip a beat because he strap restraining his arm is acting as a tourniquet.

The authorities were mystified.Then the order came in for Randall to be released. Scott Randall, convicted murderer and phenomenal scumbag, had a new leash in life. Randall was unstrapped and he started cursing at his victims families and attempts to break the glass,scaring them away in the process. But in the middle of his fury, Randall went down and then out. The reason he didn't die before is because the straps were too tight. Once unstrapped,the drugs found the one thing Randall never had:a heart and finished him off.

"It's hard to justify one death with another, but a monster like Scott Randall, he deserved to die."
