Episode Recap

Barbie Hallem is a spoiled brat without much sense who enjoys using men. After drinking too much at a party, she ditches her beau and drives up to a cabin left to her by her late uncle. On the way. she stops at a cafe owned by Ed Mungo, whom she meets there and who takes an instant dislike to Barbie. She learns that Ed's brother, Bennie, is wanted by the police for having murdered his girlfriend. When Barbie gets to her cabin, she finds Bennie hiding there. Thinking nothing of his presence, Barbie begins to party with him, and believes his story that he simply killed a dog that was attacking, not a woman. Bennie leads her to believe that his brother Ed is the murderer. Ed arrivers later, and there is a stand-off between the two in which Bennie kills him outside in the struggle. Barbie, waiting inside, is not fully aware what just happened. Emerging from the house, Barbie is about to drive off with Bennie, and confesses to him that she had gone to the cabin to get away from her boring boyfriend. Bennies says his girlfriend felt the same way about him and that's why he killed her - just as "put Ed to sleep." He then closes in to strangle Barbie.
