Synopsis
Bruce and Julius are vying for the honor of becoming the new Chairman of the Physics Department, and Bruce wins out. But Julius is very bitter and storms back to his lab, musing that any scientist who has created an invention like the Spherical Accelerator should have had the job. Julius uses the machine on himself, with success. But when he discovers that Bruce and Christine are to be wed that very afternoon, he plots a "special" revenge upon the two, but it backfires with tragic results.
