Cabinet of Curiosities Season 1 Episode 4 Recap
“The Outside” revolves around a young woman named Stacy. Always left out by others, not included in any of the gossips by other women, Stacy was a bit odd out of the lot. Her loneliness and her insecurities made her more dependent on her boyfriend Keith who truly loved her for how she was. What more added to her oddness? Her hobby. She loved taxidermy.
When she got invited by one of her colleagues to Gina’s secret Santa Part, she was surprised and overwhelmed with joy. Although her boyfriend sensed something was not right, Stacy could not let go of this one opportunity where she could be like all other women. For the party, she shot a duck and stuffed it to gift to Gina. It got pretty awkward when she handed over her taxidermy gift to Gina.
It happened so that Gina started to discuss the Alo Glo lotions that she had bought. They were getting immense popularity in the market. While Stacy applied that lotion on herself like others, her skin reacted negatively to it. Sad, she had to return home.

She was manipulated into believing that Alo Glo would make her beautiful and she would be accepted by all. She started to use them despite her allergic reaction to the lotions. Worries Keith wanted to take her to the hospital, but she refused and accused him of not understanding her problems.
When the lotion bottles seemed to come to life, scared Stacy wanted to give up on her dream of becoming socially acceptable, but the salesman convinces her to do otherwise, promising that she would become beautiful and socially acceptable.

Later she emerged as the beautiful woman she wanted to be after bathing in the Alo Glo in her bathtub, but she lost the one thing that the human population craves unconditional love.
