** A very twisted example occurs in "The Deadly Hour," where Martin Jerome finds his wife cheating on him, resulting in what Marshall calls a "mutilation of the soul." Martin doesn't speak to anybody for 25 years, spending two-week vacations alone in a remote cave by the sea. Then he comes to the cave to find a young couple already inside. Martin is enraged that they have invaded his "refuge" and remind him of his unfaithful wife and her man, so he seals them in for more than a week and listens in as they gradually lose their minds. [[spoiler:He only lets them out after one [[ImAHumanitarian is about to eat the other]]. Martin succeeds not only in utterly destroying their relationship, but in putting the young man, George, into the same catatonia he was once in.]]

* {{Sadist}}: Martin Jerome in "The Deadly Hour." Let's just say being cuckolded ''royally'' screwed him up. When he discovers that two young lovers are inside the remote cave he occupies during his "vacations," and finds himself repulsed as they express love for each other, he seals them inside with rocks and leaves them to die. After more than a week, he comes back just so he can hear them [[SanitySlippage gradually go mad from hunger and desperation]]. Then he ''taunts'' them by dropping them a box of matches simply reading, "I am here." [[spoiler:He only lets them free when the young man is on the verge [[ImAHumanitarian eating his girlfriend]]. After being released from the hospital, the young man – now [[BrokenBird completely shattered from the ordeal]] – is taken in by Martin and enters what sounds like a bizarre co-dependent relationship with him.]] JEEZUS.
