Trooper Scott Franklin stops by Charlotte Scott's remote cabin to see if she's alright. She is a big city fashion editor who is looking for peace and quiet while Franklin is a local who sees her as a snob. They are soon drawn to together when a giant creature seems to appear in the woods just outside Charlotte's cabin. Franklin's patrol car is overturned and her telephone is suddenly out of order. Together, they will have to overcome their fears and deal with the extra-terrestrial creature that has appeared, which turns out to be something altogether unexpected. Written by

The major ingredient for any recipe for fear is the unknown. And there are two characters about to partake of the meal: Miss Charlotte Scott, a fashion editor, and Mr. Robert Franklin, a state trooper. And the third member of the party: the unknown, that has just landed a few hundred yards away. This person or thing is soon to be met. This is a mountain cabin, but it is also a clearing in the shadows known as the Twilight Zone.

This episode is very quaint now and, in parts, laughable too. However, it does deliver a nice message concerning the title. This is the sort of Zone to watch in a marathon or sandwiched between some others, it's light but has a nostalgic sort of appeal.
Hazel Court (Scream Queen from Hammer's first Frankenstein and several Roger Corman films inspired by Poe)and Mark Richman play an unlikely duo come together to face the unknown. I rather like the last shot of Ms Court and the last line delivered by Richman, but you'll have to watch it to see what I mean. One of the better of the very last episodes, as the series limped towards it's own fate with rubbish like The Encounter, Caesar and Me, and The Bewitchin' Pool.
