Storyline

Sam leaps into the body of a second-rate horror writer, Joshua Ray just before Halloween 1964. Ziggy confirms that Sam is there because of Ray's fiancée Mary Neely. A series of bizarre events lead to the death of a handyman and then an elderly neighbor and Al is convinced that she is responsible somehow. The local Sheriff suspects Ray and 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 and evil force, perhaps the Devil himself. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The book Sam looks through at around 32:37 seems to be the Aunt Morgana's "recipe book" from Elvira: Mistress of the Dark (1988). The last page Sam sees is entitled "Adraka Kozorol"; this is the recipe Elvira makes for a picnic. She even wonders where Aunt Morgana kept the edrazeba. See more »

None of the 19 convicted of witchcraft in Salem, MA in 1692 were burned at the stake. They were all hanged. The 20th victim, Giles Cory, was never convicted as he was not tried. He was pressed to death while they tried to get him to make a plea. See more »

Best QL ever.
22 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.

Ethan
