这里再拓展一个固定搭配:in silhouette 呈侧面影像;呈黑色轮廓像 【If you see something in silhouette, you see it as a dark shape with no detail except for the outline.】

英文释义:

If one person does away with another, the first murders the second. If you do away with yourself, you kill yourself.

拓展:

bump sb off 也可以表示 “杀死,干掉某人 ”【To bump someone off means to kill them.】

Eg:

再回到“do away with ”这个短语,它还有一个意思,可以表示“消除;终止;废除”【To do away with something means to remove it completely or put an end to it.】

举个没剥皮的栗子:
