|This is one of my favorite episodes!|
Cut to a recording studio and the most 80's singer ever! Lady Die! Huge crimped hair! Latex outfit! Synths on the backing track...which she hates by the way. She's a nightmare, of course, total rock bitch. She storms off to her dressing room and can't stop checking for wrinkles in the mirror. She wants to do a benefit concert for the homeless...coincidence? Probably not.
Back at 'Curious Goods...a little old lady neighbor, Bertie, drops by with their curtains. She's got a crush on Jack...who is developing a protein drink that's 'healthy and organic'...way ahead of his time there Jack. Bertie is a social worker and had to identify the body of the homeless teen that died in the opening scene. They also mention an old homeless woman had disappeared earlier that year...coincidence? Probably not.
Ryan and Micki head off to the morturary to talk to the police about the homeless deaths...and they totally just walk in on the autopsy, Ryan looks a bit peaky. The pathologist discovers some 'greenish' paint on the dead girls neck, as him and the detective go in for a better look an ivy leaf falls on the floor, which Ryan quickly picks up for a clue. Sneaky.
Apparently, it's 'swapper's' ivy, which in Ireland was considered to be evil...and of course there's a cursed tea cup in the book! Ryan and Micki go to see the guy who bought it, 'Fat' Eddie Burell. Whose skeleton they find in his creepy apartment...Ryan makes a joke about not calling him 'Fat' Eddie anymore.
Sound check at the homeless charity concert. Lady Die is freaking out again over looking old. A homeless girl is partaking of the craft services table and even pick pokets Lady Die's agent's wallet. She runs off and hides in a bush.
|Not to be confused with Princess Diana|
It turns out that the old lady that's missing, Sarah, is 'Fat' Eddie's sister...coincidence? Probably not.
The Scooby gang figure out that Sarah Burell and Lady Die are the same person after hearing one of her songs on the radio which is about 'I'm a little tea pot..." Subtle.
Ryan and Micki confront her at the local radio station and she runs off but not before getting pick pocketed by the little homeless girl and running into Bertie, her old social worker. Aging quite quickly Lady Die/Sarah tries to swap lives with a homeless person but discovers that the tea cup is missing.
Ryan, Micki and Jack think it was Lady Die/Sarah not Bertie who stole the tea cup. We see Bertie in the park with the tea cup...and so does Lady Die/Sarah! Oh No! The Scooby gang rush to the park as Bertie gets chased by Lady Die/Sarah and falls down a hill and then killed by her. The police, for some reason, think Ryan and Micki have tried to kill Bertie, she's actually alive after all.
Lady Die/Sarah is on the look out for another victim...psych! It's Jack in a wig! He grabs the tea from her and runs off. Weirdly, Lady Die turns up for her benefit concert and dies as she falls out of her dressing room/RV.
Kristen ends up going to live with Bertie in the end and everyone lives happily ever after.
Note: Jakc's protein drink is made from bugs...gross.
Cursed Object: Tea Cup decorated with 'Swapper's' Ivy
