This episode is an urban legend. That's about it. Have you heard the urban legend about the hitch-hiker that turned out to be death, trying to warn the girl that she died? Yes? Then you have seen this episode already. If not, spoiler alert back there. Phoenix likes the way this episode was done though so it made up for lack of story. He isn't impossible to please (Filipino lady-boys will attest to that).
