You promised to visit me. I didn't want to be alone on that day. That day is the worst day, and you didn't come. It was a very lonely day for me Stacy, and do you know why? It was my anniversary. Ten years ago, on that day, is the day that I died!

This is quite possibly the greatest ever episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark I just watched it again and I think I cried more this time than before! It is brilliantly written and breaks your heart. Interestingly, I think, as the other reviewer so astutely noted, this isn't really one of the "terrifying" episodes of the show and yet it is quite possibly the best. The other episode that I often think is the best is also one of the more moving, emotional episodes and that is The Tale of the Lonely Ghost, from season 1. Episodes like that and The Tale of Apartment 214 are as good as television gets and will be remembered for decades - I never forgot them as a kid growing up, and they still resonate with me as an adult. Also, once again, the show has a great twist! This show really knew how to do ghost stories, just ask the writer/director of The Sixth Sense, who stole the idea for his movie from this show (not this episode). People might think this was some random basic cable show, but the quality in this series is every bit as good as say, The Twilight Zone.
