Sgt. Corman, a motorcycle cop, stops a couple of young men in a station wagon with a headlight out. When he hears a strange noise, he asks to look inside their car; what he sees drives him mad. Later, David Vincent asks to speak with him at the hospital. Corman's physician, Dr. Grayson, wants David to stay away from his patient. Corman's boss, Lt. Greg Lucather, who blames himself for what happened, agrees with the doctor when he learns of David's reputation as a kook. Corman's wife, however, agrees to let David see her husband. What David eventually learns leads him to a sea lab, which he discovers has been taken over by the aliens. Written by J. Spurlin

One of the worst episodes
4 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The characters' motivations are unreal and Carol Rossen is particularly misused as a female scientist who lets every other character buffet her around the plot like a pinball with no will of her own. The idea of the police officer downwardly mobile in his career getting scared into a catatonic state at the sight of an unregenerated alien might have been a good one, but it is poorly acted and directed and probably originally poorly written.

This episode gives us another glimpse of the aliens in their true form (See also "The Spores" in the second year), but it is not much, just a trunk with short appendages. So when these aliens take human form, they must increase in size as well(?).
