Biography[edit | edit source]
Doug was heading to a weekend getaway with his presumable love interest, Sara and his friends Paul Guthrie, Samantha Lane, Ted Cooper, and Jimmy Mortimer at a house that the group rented on the shores of Crystal Lake. After meeting a nice family that lived next door and two teenage twin girls Tina and Terri, who live in the area, and skinny dipping in the lake, the teenagers returned to the house to have a party. Through the night, Jason begins to murder Doug's friends, unknown to Doug. Doug and Sara make love in the shower upstairs, while Jason has been killing Ted. Doug and Sara are now the only ones left alive.
Sara leaves to get dressed, and Doug finishes showering. Jason walks into the bathroom, and Doug, assuming it was Paul, begins to joke around, claiming he dropped the soap but Doug's humor ends quickly when Jason smashes his hands through the glass shower door, grabs Doug, and crushes his skull with his own bare hands against the tile wall of the shower.
When Sara returns, she finds Doug dead and then she is quickly killed by Jason. Later, Trish finds Doug's body nailed to the wall as she investigates the house.
