Alice is a SealedEvilInACan. Bob, either because he was promised something like immortality or riches, thinks he can control her, or because he [[DracoInLeatherPants thinks Alice isn't as evil as everyone says she is]], tries to free her. After a bit of hard work, and possibly some outmaneuvering of people with more common sense, Bob frees Alice. However, rather than rewarding Bob for his service or even giving him a simple thank you, Alice tosses Bob into her mouth and eats him without a second thought.
