Storyline

Sam leaps into of a second-rate horror writer, Joshua Rey, on Halloween 1964. Ziggy confirms that Sam is there because of Rey's fiancée Mary Greely. A series of bizarre events lead to the death of a handyman and then an elderly neighbor. Al is convinced that Mary is responsible somehow. Sheriff Ben Masters suspects Rey while Sam is sure that the sheriff is the guilty party. Sam constantly sees a goat at the site of the deaths and soon realizes that he is combating an evil force, perhaps the Devil himself. Written by garykmcd

Best QL ever.

Great job Chris and Joe for writing and directing my favorite episode of Quantum Leap. I just saw it for the millionth time last night. I've watched it every October since it aired. First on a VHS recording, then a DVD, now streaming on netflix. I still love it. Unfortunately, I know what they're going to say before they say it every time I watch it now. One of my few remaining rituals every year. I work in TV now, and don't have time to watch TV much anymore. There's so many little things in this episode. It must have been a labor of love.

Worth seeing for sure, if you haven't.
