Ye Ol' stuck in the mud

***SPOILERS*** Storming out of their specious mansion after the old lady of the house Carol Jansen, Jean Allison, put her husband big shot attorney Will Jansen, Paul Richards, down in what a stiff he is both in the courtroom and in bed he got in his car and drove off a cliff in a heavy rainstorm. It's later when Carol got her head together that she realized that her hubby was in serious danger even though she couldn't quite put her finger on what exactly the danger was.

Going to the local police to file a missing person report on her husband the cop in charge Sgt. Cooper, Douglsas Kennedy, feels that will will pop up at any moment alive & well. The fact that Will was up to his nostrils in mud pinned under his car never registered in Sgt. Cooper's head. That's until a determined Carol convinced him that her husband is in very serious danger in that he somehow communicated a massage to her via mental telepathy. And that massage was "Landmark" which made no sense to Sgt. Cooper at all. But it did to Carol who knew that's the place, the shut down "Landmark Diner", where her husband had met a fate worse then death if help didn't get to him on time!

One of the earliest "One Step Beyond " episode that pre-dated the far more popular series "The Twilight Zone" by some six months. Not much of a story in it's been done many times before and after but good enough to keep your interest even though the so-called surprised ending was telegraphed to you almost as soon as the episode started.
