I smell blood and an era of prominent madmen.
Frank, Peter Watts, and Group member Jim Penseyres investigate a cult in San Francisco that seems to be killing its own.
- Apocalypse Cult / Path of Inspiration: By way of a company that sells hair products through multi-level marketing. Some would say that this isn't far from the truth.
- Putting on the Reich: The company's slides eventually display "Arbeit Macht Frei," a saying seen on the gates at the Auschwitz concentration camp.
- Ripped from the Headlines: Inspired by and makes reference to the Aum Shinrikyo Tokyo subway attack of 1995.
- Your Mind Makes It Real: A cultist takes sarin-infused LSD and hallucinates vicious dog-headed creatures attacking him. The resulting panic kills him outright.
