The question of whether Vance was dead or not became more than academic when he found himself in a bathtub up to his chin in ice water like some forgotten cocktail garnish, a demonic woman standing over him, and no memory of how he got there.

Idiot plot development

An idiot plot development is a relative of the idiot plot and the second-order idiot plot where a plot development is dependent on a stupid decision by a character, frequently because of genre blindness on the part of said character. For example, a common plot trope in horror involves characters going into a situation that they should know better than to go into, such as going down into a basement when it is known that a killer is about. Another example is when a character does something that will piss off other characters if they find out about it, such as selling fake drugs, yet not taking any precautions about not being followed home, or, worse yet, doing the deed in their own house, and consequently getting beat up or killed at home. (e)
