Plot

Cold Open

Gertrude Haynes emerges from a club. Loud music plays in the background. She tips the doorman, who advises her to drive safely. She laughs at him and climbs into her car. As she starts her vehicle (which we see has a racing number on the side) another car starts up and pursues her. She notices the pursuer in her mirror and accelerates, but there is a problem with her one of her wheels. It comes loose and she crashes into a tree. As smoke comes out of her engine, the other car pulls to a stop behind her. Gertrude's bloody face rests on her steering wheel.
