In "Man Trap," a construction boss is haunted by the worker that he accidentally blew up.
As the episode opens, Brig Delaney explains that he is the head of a construction crew responsible for building a highway through the mountains. Artie Finch is second-in-charge, and the two have problems. Although they have worked together many times before, Artie has become convinced that Brig is after his wife, Lola. He believes that all of the men on the crew are after Lola.
So, Artie insists on laying down dynamite himself, rather than trusting anyone else. Brig allows it because he can't convince Artie otherwise. Then, an accident with the dynamite occurs--and Artie is blown to bits!
When the police investigate, Lola puts the finger on Brig as the man responsible. She tells them that Brig is obsessed with her, and when he saw his chance to get rid of Artie, he took it. Brig doesn't know what she is talking about, but she is so convincing, he starts to wonder...
Did Brig really blow up Artie on purpose?
