A "Forked Lightning" thunderstorm psychically links welder Frank Maxwell (as Alex Peters) and banker Ralph Nelson (as George Chambers). Mr. Maxwell has a minor stroke, along with having a premonition of his own death. "I'll be dead by tonight," he says. Meanwhile, Mr. Nelson's shapely wife, Roberta Haynes (as Ellen), relates a visionary nightmare wherein she sees Nelson dead on the floor of his bank. "I saw you dead," she says. Nelson agrees to stay away from the workplace. But, later, he is called there on emergency.
In her small screen debut, beautiful young Candy Moore (as Carolyn) plays widower Maxwell's crippled daughter. Later, she played Lucille Ball's pretty teenage daughter ("Chris" on "The Lucy Show"). Very charming, Ms. Moore is immediately ready for her close-up. Despite some obvious effort, with the Maxwell and Moore story being especially appealing, this episode ends up an being silly.
