As Ruzhdije returns from her date with Alex ghosts from her past begin haunt her and gets in the way of her ability to connect with Alex and herself. Episode 4 is a stiletto heel's piece choreographed by Beat Club's very own, Courtney Goerge which is influenced by Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven"
The main theme of the poem, The Raven, by Edgar Allan Poe is one of obsession. The narrator experiences a perverse conflict between desire to forget and desire to remember. He seems to get some pleasure from focusing on loss. The narrator assumes that the word "Nevermore" is the raven's "only stock and store", and yet, he continues to ask the raven questions, knowing that the answer will always be the same. His questions, then, are purposely self-deprecating and further incite his feelings of loss. The narrator begins as "weak and weary," becomes regretful and grief-stricken, before passing into a frenzy and, finally, madness.
