Harold Stern has an extremely rare blood type--so rare, in fact, that the act of giving blood causes him to become aware of events in the recipient's life that have not happened yet. One day he is called upon to give blood to save the life of a dying young girl, and he doesn't like what he sees in store for her. Written by
After getting a role in this, Suzanne Pleshette was asked if she could swim, because her character did. Pleshette was actually a very good swimmer, but she said that she couldn't so the production would have to give a job to a double to do the scene. When the double showed up, she told Pleshette that she couldn't swim. Pleshette told her not to worry about it, and then proceeded to do the swimming scene, doubling her own double. See more »
Fifty-three year old clairvoyant Norman Lloyd (as Harold Stern) is reluctant to donate his rare blood type to save the life of sexy nineteen-year-old Suzanne Pleshette (as Martha Wizinski), who has fallen unconscious. Previously, Mr. Lloyd was a frequent blood donor, but some supernatural force has caused him to change his name, and hide from patients needing blood transfusions.
With blood supplies obviously in demand, police lieutenant David White (as Barry) tracks Lloyd down. During a confrontation over blood donations, Mr. White asks Lloyd, "What kind of a crumb are you?" Lloyd tells the future "Bewitched" boss (Larry Tate) he is disturbed by psychic bonds with those receiving his blood. Future "Dark Shadows" handyman George Mitchell (Matthew Morgan) begs Lloyd donate blood to save his daughter's life, calling the reluctant donor a potential "Murderer!"
In a dissolve, Lloyd relents. A month later, Lloyd meets Ms. Pleshette, who has recovered nicely enough to swim with handsome John Brennan. She thanks him for saving her life, and he gives her what looks like the combination of a steely glance and a come hither look. Then, Lloyd has a nightmare. He complains to White, certain some horrible event is about to occur Host John Newland says this "Delusion" (the second season premiere story) is "reported as true."
