While Darlene is seeing Philip, Bebe is mating with lead guitarist Keith. However instead of clubbing Darlene discovers a dead Philip, an apparent victim of electrocution by guitar. The police suspect Darlene killed her boyfriend probably because of free love with other groupies, but Bebe knows her roommate would never murder anyone. As the police look to pin the rap on Darlene, Bebe goes to the Village seeking to uncover the real culprit.
