"Dead Heat", Way to Die #657, is the fifth death to be featured in "Bringing in the Dead", which aired on January 6, 2010.
Suzette is cooking for Brett, her new boyfriend and forces him to smell some exotic, imported spices, not knowing that he has asthma and he doesn't tell her because he believes it makes him look weak. To make matter's worse, his inhaler soon runs out of medicine, and begins to asphyxiate, but Suzette refuses to believe what he does, thinking he's faking it. She didn't notice until it's too late, because Brett dies from massive asthma attack.
