"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. Little did Suzette know, Brett has asthma, but he doesn't tell her because he thinks it makes him weak. To make matters worse, his inhaler soon runs out of medicine, and he begins to asphyxiate, but Suzette refuses to believe what he does, thinking he's just faking it. She didn't notice until she puts her head on Brett's chest. It was too late, when Brett dies from massive asthma attack.
