Storyline

Millicent Barnes is waiting in the bus station waiting for her bus to Cortland to arrive. The weather outside is dreadful and the bus is over half an hour late already. When she inquires the station clerk chides her for constantly asking when it will arrive. The only thing is it's the first time he's asked him anything. When she goes to the powder room the cleaning lady suggests she was just in there, she begins to worry that she's going mad. A good Samaritan, Paul Grinstead, tries to help her out but soon realizes there may be an explanation for what is happening after all. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The cities mentioned in this episode (Cortland, Syracuse, Tully, and Binghamton) all lie along Hwy. 11 in central upstate New York. The use of these places is a homage by Rod Serling to his childhood. He was born in Syracuse and lived in Binghamton until he graduated high school. Even when he lived in Hollywood during his heyday, he maintained a home in Binghamton. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: [Closing Narration] Obscure metaphysical explanation to cover a phenomenon, reasons dredged out of the shadows to explain away that which cannot be explained. Call it parallel planes or just insanity. Whatever it is, you find it in the Twilight Zone.

Amazing- The Twilight Zone and Rod Serling at Their Best!
2 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a happily zany Twilight Zone fan, I have enjoyed Mirror Image many times. I first saw it at 11:45 one night, and it gave me the chills! Vera Miles, the lovely and talented actress who appeared under the direction of Alfred Hitchcock played Lila Crane in "Psycho" plays Millicent Barnes, a girl "with her head on her shoulders" and who apparently does not have much of an imagination. She is stuck in a bus station waiting for a bus and it is, of course, raining. As she goes to ask the ticket seller when the bus will come in. His reply will begin a long road of craziness, and horror for Millicent Barnes, and the man that will come to help her, and eventually succumb to the same horrific events, Paul Grinstead, played by Martin Milner. A terrific, perfect, and amazing episode!
