Storyline

David is contacted by Anne Gibbs, an alien who is on the run from both her fellow aliens and humans. She is the undesired result of an attempt to mimic human behavior by creating emotion. It's been successful in part, as she now values her own life as well as those of humans, but in the process she frequently now loses control and becomes violent when even mildly angered, and has killed a woman in one of her outbursts. Still, she tells David she will come with him to Washington to tell officials everything she knows about the aliens' plans. But the aliens plan to kill her to stop her, and the husband of the woman she killed is also after her seeking revenge. Written by rbecker28

An Angry, Violent Female "Invader" Named Suzanne Pleshette
30 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

Vincent deals with an angry, violent female "invader" who is so horrible that even her fellow aliens don't like her.

In this day and age seeing a woman behave like this on TV is not that strange but seeing a woman get this angry and violent on TV back then in 1968...I wonder how viewers reacted to it back then?

This is sort of a sister show to last week's hour, The Life Seekers, as once again we have an "invader" who does not behave like his/her pals.

This episode is not to be confused with season one's The Mutation which also had Pleshette playing an "invader" who does not play ball with her friends.

Both The Pursued and The Mutation are outstanding hours.
