Storyline

Henry Marshall has finally been released from prison, after doing his own penance and that of his scheming ex-boss Evans. Now he means to have his revenge. Gun in hand, he rides the elevator to the company Christmas party and shoots several guests. Then he races away, eventually finding a small tavern and the mysterious Lucas, who tries to teach him that his life is connected to other lives. If Henry can learn this lesson he may get a second chance; if not, death awaits him. Written by CommanderBalok

Best Outer Limits Episode Ever
13 July 2011 | by (Victoria, BC. Canada) – See all my reviews

This is the best Outer Limits Episode ever. It is a morality tale as most episodes are. It is science fiction. It relies on two actors sitting at a restaurant table eating bean with bacon soup with a bare minimum of special effects. The writing is brilliant, and completely believable on a metaphorical, moral and quantum mechanical level. Usually such dialogue makes me cringe. This time it felt like the writer knew from first hand experience the quantum strangeness of existence. In a way it is like A Christmas Carol and It's a Wonderful Life, but without the cloying or Christian trappings.

Poor Henry is well aware this "angel" is probably just some fruitcake. The "angel" simply asserts things with dogmatic certainty, but never offering proof.

The writer teases you with bits of information. You become frustrated trying to piece all the tiny clues together to discover what this as all about. It is a very intelligent episode, not it the least corny.
