Storyline

Brother Avery has seen the light of a heavenly host. They are coming, and they will bring peace. At the end of each of his services, the red glow that surrounds him reveals the divinity that inspires him! But David Vincent knows that this glow actually signifies that Avery is an alien who needs to regenerate. David's trouble is figuring out how to prove it when Avery is surrounded at all times by fanatics - not all of whom are human. The key may lie in Now magazine writer Bill Shay, if David can trust him with the truth. Written by CommanderBalok

Two Memorable Scenes
24 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

Brother Avery (Pat Hingle) is the leader of some oddball cult fanatics and he glows at the end of his talks. What does this mean? Vincent knows.

I am the first to review this episode, which might indicate that some are lost for words about this hour: I was lost for words at first.

The Prophet is a drop in quality after ten mostly wonderful episodes. There seems to be a lazy feeling to the scripting and direction here. Is it possible all concerned with this series were a little burned out after putting together ten great movie-like hours in a short space of time? I think so.

This plot here can be called interesting but the episode can only just be called good.

The creepy image of glowing Avery and seeing Vincent almost murdered by a vintage Ford car make two scenes very memorable
