In this week's episode, Sandra talks about scary Truck Driver and Road trip stories that can be found on the popular website, Reddit. These stories range from funny to weird to downright creepy.

Later, Danielle continues the European serial killer theme with Countess Elizabeth Báthory. It is thought that she inspired Bram Stoker's Dracula. Local villagers spoke in hushed tones about the many servants who mysteriously disappeared after working at Elizabeth's castle. Stories later came out about the Countess bathing in the servants' blood. But, these accounts were later disputed when it came to light that Elizabeth's family waived King Matthias' hefty debt which he owed the Countess.
