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

One of the best episode of the whole show

I'll never tell enough how much I love this TV series that is forty years old for now. This épisodes confirms that I already know. A bittersweet tale of our lead - Vincent - who must fight against all kind of people in order to destroy the aliens. Here, he tries to protect a female invader who is pursued by her "people" because she represents a danger for their survival among the human beings. And the female character is quite interesting. I won't spoil the story any further. But I assure you, this is worthwhile.

One more failure for David Vincent in his desperate attempt to stop the invaders. That's so good.
