Sam leaps into Willie Jackson, an inmate on death row for killing his wife and her lover in a moment of rage. At the moment he leaps in, Sam is already in the electric chair, but the chair fails and his sentence is put off for one week. With the help of Al, Sam must convince a reporter to give up the identity of his confidential source in the 1962 case of Parker (Dr. Death) Michaels. If he doesn't find a way to solve this problem, the reporter will kill Dr. Michaels in the future, thus putting himself on death row as well and leaving Sam to be executed in the electric chair.
