|Behind the Scenes|
Samantha "Sam" Covington is the main character of the fourth season episode "Argh V".
Sam Covington is a teenage girl who`s seen studying for a trigonometry test when her free-spirited parents pull up to their house in a massive RV they bought. Sam's parents talk about living life on the road, but Sam is less than thrilled about the idea.
Sam later starts discovering unusual things about the RV such as having a vision of a man panicking in the driver's seat, hearing the sound of children's laughter and telling her to "take a trip." At one point, she is pinned underneath the RV after it moves on its own. When Sam and her friend Tully check out the RV, they discover a map belonging to a family of four called the Applebaums. They learn that the Applebaums died in the RV while taking in a trip to the Southwest. In order to protect her parents, Sam steals the RV and takes it to a junkyard, but when she comes home, the RV is waiting for her.
The next day, Sam's parents decide to take a trip in the RV and Sam reluctantly decides to join them. During the ride, Sam's father stops looking at the road to look at the map and they hear and see the sounds and lights of an incoming truck, but Sam and her parents are okay. As they drive, they pick up a family who introduces themselves as the Applebaums which rattles Sam, but her mom thinks it's a coincidence. As the Applebaums get in the RV, everything appears to be okay until Sam sees the Applebaum children as pale-skinned corpses asking her to take a trip.
When Sam turns around, she sees Mr. and Mrs. Applebaum as pale-skinned corpses too. She notices her parents talking in a slow, deathly monotone, corpse-like tone about how excited they are for their trip. Sam comes to the realization that she & her parents were killed in the truck collision earlier and are now doomed to wander the highway in the haunted vehicle forever. Sam is shown crying as the RV drives off into the fog, taking them to the afterlife.
