Confusing Response.Redirect Behavior

I am taking over some code and am having trouble understanding it. In the Page_Load, there is a Response.Redirect that Visual Studio says is being executed.

But then the remainder of the statements in Page_Load execute and THEN the Page_Load of the second page.

I thought Response.Redirect was immediate.  Here's the code:

        If Request.IsAuthenticated = True Then
            Session.Abandon()
            FormsAuthentication.SignOut()
            Response.Redirect("~/Somepage.aspx", False)
        End If

        ' Session has been abandoned and FormsAuthentication has been signed out.

        If IsNothing(Request.Cookies("UserInfo")) = False Then

Open in new window


Can anyone explain how this works? Am I witnessing the impossible?
If I execute the Response.Redirect, how can I get to the 'if' a few lines later?

The false says don't end the response, eg: keep loading the page.

If you want to do it immediately, set that to true.
