Trooper Scott Franklin stops by Charlotte Scott's remote cabin to see if she's alright. She is a big city fashion editor who is looking for peace and quiet while Franklin is a local who sees her as a snob. They are soon drawn to together when a giant creature seems to appear in the woods just outside Charlotte's cabin. Franklin's patrol car is overturned and her telephone is suddenly out of order. Together, they will have to overcome their fears and deal with the extra-terrestrial creature that has appeared, which turns out to be something altogether unexpected. Written by

The major ingredient for any recipe for fear is the unknown. And there are two characters about to partake of the meal: Miss Charlotte Scott, a fashion editor, and Mr. Robert Franklin, a state trooper. And the third member of the party: the unknown, that has just landed a few hundred yards away. This person or thing is soon to be met. This is a mountain cabin, but it is also a clearing in the shadows known as the Twilight Zone.

A rather wealthy heiress who has one royal high opinion of herself and a state trooper get thrown together on a mysterious night. Hazel Court and Peter Mark Richman positively can't stand each other, but before their time together is over they will have succeeded in repelling an invasion from outer space.
Richman answers a call about prowlers from Court near her house. What they find is some interesting aliens full of illusion and trickery.
This was a very clever episode that holds up well even today. I can only hope that first contact with these aliens is made by people like Richman and Court.
