Excellent Episode. A sexy murder mystery that leaves you wondering is it supernatural or something more naferious? Great ending.

A "virtuous" woman brings the wrath of God down upon anyone who approaches her with "impure" thoughts. Her landlord is going increasingly wary of her --- and attracted to her.

A mysterious and beautiful woman takes a room at a boarding house and claims her luggage was lost by the bus and she is irate at the bus station staff who, she believes, looked at her in a lewd and lascivious manner. (This episode, ironically, is sponsored by Greyhound Package Express). The police arrive moments later to question the landlord about his tenants and we learn the victim, stabbed in the back, with a smudge of corn starch on his face, is none other than the terminal manager.

Do not dare lust over her. If you value your life, always be a gentleman. In the end, she pays for her brutal sins.
