"SP-Effed", Way to Die #317, is the third death to be featured in the Season Finale "Ready or Not Here Comes Death", which aired on September 5, 2011.


A young woman named Rachel is always borrowing her room mates' belongings without asking: clothes, food and beauty products. When one of her room mates buys a tanning bed (which no one is allowed to use), she decides to use it, but before going in, she mistakes psoriasis cream for moisturiser. The psoralen in the cream, activated by the tanning bed's ultraviolet radiation, gives her massive second degree burns all over her body and she collapses on her horrified room mate and dies of heart failure, hypovolemic & cardiogenic shock and severe dehydration.

"Rachel was a deadbeat who borrowed, used and ate her friends out of house and home. It's fitting to see that the roommate from hell wound up burnt to a crisp!"
