Storyline

Ellen Willis pays a frantic visit to the Squad, claiming that her boyfriend, Eddie Costa, was murdered for real in a death scene from an underground film by hippie producer Benjy Panozian. Sam and Jim drop in on the filmmaker, but all they get from Panozian is that Eddie is alive and doesn't want anything to do with the 'square' Ellen. They really can't do much of anything else, but when Eddie is found dead for certain from a stab wound, they visit Benjy again and get even more of a runaround.

A weird scene, where a terrified man runs away from something and then he faces off some kind of mannequins, live puppets. The audience wonders what the f... Not a bad episode, among the most daring of the whole series.
