  • Unidentified people are dropping dead of old age. Who are they and what happened?

    In this episode, Kolchak has to do a story about "swinging singles" and what they like to do in this day and age. Yet again, Kolchak is led to something supernatural while on his beat. Kolchak discovers that people are dying of old age in the oddest of circumstances. After investigating, Kolchak discovers a link to a computer dating company that just popped up out of nowhere. Later, he discovers that the killer is the company president Helen Surtees, formerly Helen of Troy, who has made a deal with the Greek goddess Hecate to remain eternally young. With the help of a teacher, Kolchak finds a way to confront Helen and stop her evil enterprise. This episode reminds us that, even though someone is not younger, they might just be a little more wiser.
