Storyline

Hyder Simpson and his wife Rachel have been married for 50 years. They are simple country folk who live in a small cabin in the mountains. One evening after dinner, Hyder and his dog go off raccoon hunting. When the dog jumps into a fast moving stream Hyder jumps him to rescue him. He wakes up the next morning having apparently spent the night in the woods. When he gets home however, he and his dog are invisible to everyone around them, Rachel is dressed in black and it's apparent that he's died. Thus begins Hyder's journey, one that presents him with choices. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

[closing narration]
Narrator: Travelers to unknown regions would be well-advised to take along the family dog. He could just save you from entering the wrong gate. At least, it happened that way once - in a mountainous area of the Twilight Zone.

Heaven for country folk
2 June 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

One of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes involves Arthur Hunnicutt and Jeanette Nolan as a pair of old married folk from the mountains and Hunnicutt's old hound dog named Rip. One night Hunnicutt decides to go on a coon hunt despite his wife misgivings and it turns out to be both their last fleshly night.

It takes a bit for Hunnicutt to be convinced he's dead and he even goes down the wrong path on Eternity Road. Let's just say that it's a good thing he and Rip died together.

I suppose if heaven is real it's something different for everyone. For a man like Hunnicutt it would be quite something different than for say the Sultan of Brunei. That's a proposition that's dealt with in this Twilight Zone story.

Hunnicutt who made a career of playing rustic types makes this episode special.
