In a futuristic world a man and a woman, from opposing sides in a devastating war, meet in a deserted city. They don't share a common language and she is quite wary of her opponent, though he doesn't appear aggressive in any way. When she attempts to kill him, he goes off on his own. It's obvious that society and civilization has been destroyed and she begins to reconsider. Written by
A lot is dated in this episode (just like most Twilight Zone episodes), such as the Woman's incredibly sexist military "uniform." And some things are so unbelievable, like the easy availability of clean water. Still, consider the year this was made and the time, and you quickly understand why this episode is so special as you watch. It has a nice sense of hope, something missing from a lot of Twilight Zones, as well as an interesting female character (despite the fact that she rarely speaks), something else rare on the Twilight Zone. "Two" is a great example of how the Twilight Zone, in just over 20 minutes, could pack more emotion and drama than most two hours movies today. And it's great to see two people who became American icons so early in their careers.
