Nick Baxter's touch proves lethal: he has developed an alien illness that promises a slow death for him, but a very rapid death by freezing for any organism that he touches! David tracks him down, but others are also very interested in finding Baxter - his own people. Baxter just wants to reach a saucer so he can get medical help, but he is convinced those hunting him simply want him dead. David's success may depend on convincing an old curmudgeon who has turned his back on humanity to find in himself the desire to help others. Written by CommanderBalok

Tense Chapter of "The Invaders"
6 October 2015 | by (Out There in the Dark) – See all my reviews

Beautiful locations and a score that sometimes resembles music of Bernard Herrmann bring distinction to this tense, exciting episode. Guest star Robert Walker, Jr is an alien with a difference. When mysterious deaths attract his attention to the area, David Vincent arrives to investigate and finds Walker responsible. He manages to take the alien prisoner, but a gullible woman (future Mrs. Thinnes, Lynn Loring) helps him escape while Vincent sleeps. There are a few disturbing scenes and a fair amount of excitement in this episode and the locations, meant to be West Virginia, are often striking.

Besides Walker and Loring, who are very good, we have R.G. Armstrong and a few other TV stalwarts of the period in the cast. Frontiere's score is noteworthy and effective and director Robert Butler generates plenty of action and tense drama. A top notch chapter.
