The way Juice's suicide was staged, with the lovely rendition of Strange Fruit and all (with the coincidental and ironic line "here is fruit for the crows to pluck,") seems to be telling us that he's dead for real. They wouldn't go thru all that hooplah for a fake-out.
As far as I can see, all the breaking branch sound does is suck the power out of an otherwise very dramatic suicide scene. I don't see why they would do that just for a lame cliffhanger.
I believe the noise was supposed to be a droll way of implying the attempt was unsuccessful and was merely a misjudgement on the part of the writer. After all Juice's situation to date has been a tragicomedy of errors on his part.
Guess we'll see next week though.
