After an anonymous phone call about a spacecraft that crashed in a frozen wood, two police officers find evidence that the event really happened. Apparently one alien had walked away from the spot. They drive to the nearby highway Café and they find a bus with seven passengers waiting for the reopening of a snowed in bridge. However the driver says that he had only six passengers when he parked the bus.

When I was in junior high, my friends and I used to write stories. They always had to have surprise endings. When I see the plot of this offering, it reminds me of the stories we would write. Oh, they weren't as polished, and we didn't know what an exotic dancer was, but we had Martians and Venutians and all these people sparring with each other.

Anyway, the acting is just fine and Serling has a lot of fun with the camera. It has one of those memorable last moments too.
