In the Philippines in 1945, army Lt. Fitzgerald has developed the disturbing ability to look into his men's faces and know who will be killed in the next battle. He says it's like a light is shined on their face. His superior, Capt. Phil Riker, consults the medical officer but he finds nothing conclusive. Fitzgerald passes out when visiting one of his wounded men in the hospital after he sees the light on his face. When he sees the light on Riker's face, he begs him not to go out. After they return from the operation, he sees that there will be one other casualty that day. Written by
William Reynolds plays Army Lt. Fitzgerald, who is stationed in the Phillipine Islands in World War II in 1945, who discovers to his dismay that he has developed the ability to see who will soon die by a mysterious glowing light that becomes visible on their faces. His superior(played by Dick York) doesn't believe him of course, but after more predicted deaths come true, it becomes obvious to Fitzgerald that only one course of action is possible, especially after seeing the glowing light in his own reflection... Highly effective and poignant outing made more so because of the added air of authenticity by writer Rod Serling, who was a World War II veteran himself.
