The Rescuer
16 April 2015 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

A unique case of out-of-body experience is the focus of this episode, as an explorer who was part of a small group of other men that had become lost in the brutal heat in the arid Sahara desert was unexpectedly rescued by a young man, who led them to water and salvation , just barely surviving their horrific ordeal. This explorer goes to visit the father of the young man whose name was Eric(played by Jeremy Slate) is shocked to be told that in fact Eric was a bedridden invalid that whole time, and in fact had died, but not of his illness, but of dehydration! How can this be? Interesting entry with an effective setting and revelation.
