I've never thought that #5 sees through VRT's impersonation. I've always
assumed that he was just being offensive. As he says: "I had come to
kill my father, and it was necessary that Dr Marsch leave." The fact
that by a million-to-one chance he hits on the truth would be just
typical Wolfe.

I have no clever proof of this, except for your own point that that
there doesn't seem to be any way that #5 _could_ have seen through
Marsch's impression. But wouldn't he have been at least a little bit
excited if he really thought he was sitting next to an abo?
