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

Quotes

Narrator: [Opening Narration] Millicent Barnes, age twenty-five, young woman waiting for a bus on a rainy November night.

The fragility of identity
18 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mirror Image concerns a woman who discovers a double of herself during an overnight stay in a bus station. Is she losing her mind, or does the double actually exist? One of the series' earliest dealings with the question of identity - man's (or woman's) struggle to hold onto it and how it can be attacked by natural or supernatural means. That question of identity would be revisited several times in the series' run. This one is particularly notable for the fact that the protagonist is a woman, and she generally keeps herself from degenerating into hysterics despite the circumstances. That's notable for 1959-1960 television. Very good episode.
