TV-Serie, Season 4, Episode 4
While having a seizure, a 24-year-old funeral-home cosmetician named Irene (Azura Skye) hallucinates that she's being raped by one of the corpses she's working on. The fellowship applicants think it might be Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (the human form of Mad Cow Disease), caught from one of the corpses at her job.
Amber throws a wild guess that Irene's symptoms might result from ergot poisoning from mold in the organic bread that she eats, causing LSD-like hallucinations, worsened by the bromocriptine they gave while assuming Parkinson's Disease, and that the reason Irene kept requesting milk is that it is a natural treatment for the contamination of the bread. The team treats her, and it works. (Wikipedia)
