(2) Drowned in a tank of water during a sideshow act. (3) Hanged during his act. (4) Killed in a car crash when he deliberately wrecks the car in order to kill Gustav. (5) Electrocuted during his act. (6) Shot with a crossbow by Jack O'Leary during the act. (7) Stabbed in the back by Kathleen York in his hotel room.

(After the opening scene, the movie "rewinds" to the start of the day, leading up to an alternate outcome; Joe's body is only shown in the second version, suggesting that he survived in the first version.)
