  • Episode Description
  • A young man and his big brother drive across country to the latter's new job site. At the end of his first week of work, he returns strangely changed. A bathroom accident kills the older brother by shorting out his pacemaker. The fact that big brother had a perfectly healthy heart leads the younger brother and a police detective, Sgt. Sirolio, to dig further. Sirolio finds that Norco hides a secret. They've been experimenting with a dangerous being of pure energy. This was how the older brother was killed prior to being resurrected with the pacemaker implant. Sirolio and a scientist are nearly killed when the creature escapes. Some quick thinking allows them to draw the thing back into "the pit," safe, for now.moreless

    • Control Voice: (closing narration) The Conservation of Energy Law... a principle which states that energy can be changed in form but that it cannot be either created or destroyed. And this is true of all energy... the energy of genius, of madness, of the heart, of the atom. And so it must be lived with. It must be controlled, channeled for good, held isolated from evil, and somehow lived with, peaceably.

    • Control Voice: (opening narration) His name is Warren Edgar Morley. For the past six months, he has guarded this gate from eight in the morning until six at night, at which time he is replaced by another just like himself. These are the last few moments of his life.
