"Barney Rubble Eyes" is the 2nd episode of Dead of Summer.
The campers arrive to Camp Stillwater and quickly Alex and Blotter realize one of their new charges, Anton, is going to be a handful. With the tendency to wander off into the woods talking to himself, Alex and Blotter think the shy kid just has an imaginary friend. But when Anton starts talking about "the Tall Man" and communicating cryptic messages to them, they begin to wonder what lurks in the woods around Stillwater. Meanwhile, flashbacks show how Alex got his "if you want something in life, you have to take it" attitude.
- The title of this episode is derived from the character of the same name who appears in the animated TV series The Flintstones. Alex warns Blotter, "Couple drops and you'll have Barney Rubble eyes", referring to the fact that Blotter's eyes will dilate after he takes acid, thus making his pupils large, like Barney Rubble.
