Mortal Dilemma is the first segment of the third episode of Grim & Evil.


Grim misses the good-old days of his life as the reaper of souls and, due to his bet, he cannot return to the Underworld, much to the hilarity of his Underworld co-workers. Having a sudden epiphany, Grim decides to be good and help people rather than try to take their souls. However, Grim attempts at being good are faced with resistance from people, who are scared off by his appearance.
