[closing narration]
Narrator: In a way, it can be said that Walter Ryder succeeded in his life's ambition, even though the man he created was, after all, himself. There may be easier ways to self-improvement, but sometimes it happens that the shortest distance between to points is a crooked line - through the Twilight Zone.

Even for the Twilight Zone, a Little Far-Fetched
21 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A man and his girlfriend are on their way to what seems to be his home town. On the way, he suffers from painful headaches, brought on by a loud, intense sound. When he gets to his home, the house is now inhabited by a man he has never seen. The townspeople recognize some of the names he throws around, but they are names from the past, some even having passed away. The other thing is that he has a really violent side that exhibits itself when he is under stress. After he stops his car suddenly and receives an arm injury. he investigates something on the side of the road. While there he is again overtaken with pain, picks up a rock and heads toward his girlfriend. He is able to warn her to stay away, and, after hesitating, she runs for it. A man gives him a ride into town and he is suddenly drawn to a house. What happens there explains his pain and a secret that dumbfounds him. This is quite a unique episode if you don't think too much.
