Storyline

Spike was flipping channels right till he got to one featuring a religious cult called "Scratch". Their leader is Dr. Londes, who portrays as an existing god. Those who became members of the cult, eventually commit suicide because Dr. Londes told them to. As for that a bounty is placed on Dr. Londes. Spike, Jet, and Ed look into this Scratch cult. Spike has no luck in finding out where Dr. Londes is, and Ed has no luck in finding any background data on the guy. It's as if he doesn't at all exist. Written by J LeGault
