The 1st episode of the 1st season and the 1st episode overall. The source for the episode came from the #17 of the Crypt of Terror comic. Niles Talbot is the executioner who flips the switch for the electric chair. He is shocked to discover one day that the state has overturned its death penalty, leaving him jobless. Unable to watch guilty defendants run free, Niles takes matters into his own hands, becoming a vigilante executioner until fate catches up with him.
