Storyline

Bill and his new bride are so happy to be married, their antics cause Bill to lose control of the car. They run a truck off the road, and its driver staggers from the vehicle, falls, glows red and vanishes! Then the young couple suffocates - outside! It's all part of a scheme run by the alien Taugus, and it draws in David's brother Bob, Bob's wife Grace, and crusading newsman Theodore Booth. David has finally managed to convince both his brother and someone able to get the word out that he may be telling the truth about the alien invasion - but is it just in time to see the entire human population choking for air on their own planet?

Quotes

Narrator: [Opening Narration] An accident on a deserted highway. A honeymoon couple that dies by suffocation - in the open air. A chemical truck traced to a company that doesn't exist. Strange circumstances for which David Vincent can find one answer: somehow, someway, alien beings from another world must be involved.

Architect's Brother
28 May 2018 | by hrkeplerSee all my reviews

In this another tense and thrilling chapter of 'The Invaders' David Vincent arrives to investigate mysterious car accident, where the driver of chemical truck is missing and newly wedded couple is suffocated to death in open air. Vincent gets his hands on solid evidence to prove the presence of the Invaders on Earth. He contacts journalist Theodore Booth (energetic Burgess Meredith) who doesn't need much persuasion to help out Vincent. Aliens kidnap Vincent's skeptic brother Bob to keep him publishing the truth about the invasion. Race against the clock starts.

By this episode David Vincent (and also the viewer) have learned a lot about the aliens and their intentions, so it is very easy to feel powerless anger towards the aliens. Especially when we see one of them explaining their plans on the screen. Again, one of those episodes which ending gives restless and helpless feeling. Powerful episode.

P.S. The young wife is played by Peggy Lipton in one of her earliest roles.
