Episode Summary

EDIT
Tony and Doug arrive near the Italian-Austrian Alps on October 23, 1915, as the Germans are preparing to bombard the area. An explosion knocks them out and uncovers the stone coffin of Emperor Nero. Nero's sword floats out of it, but kills a German soldier. They awaken and discover they are beneath the villa of Count Galba. He claims the two travelers are American friends, covering for them against the invading Germans. The ghost of Nero has other ideas, and wants to kill Galba, whose ancestor was responsible for Nero's death. First a German soldier then Tony are possessed by the ghost. The Time Tunnel project staff manage to free Tony with a high-powered electrical discharge on the recommendation of a Dr. Steinholtz, whom they call in. However, they then pull the ghost into the current day, but manage to send him back. Tony and Doug get Galba to safety and help lead the Italian resistance to the Germans. The German leader, Neistadt, flees but Nero's ghost delays him long enough for an Italian corporal to shoot him. The ghost possesses the corporal, who reveals his name as Benito Mussolini right before the two disappear.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (3)

      • As Nero's sword is rising from the chest, the wires are extremely obvious.

      • Despite the fact she's just witnessed substantial paranormal effects due to Nero's ghost, Anne seems oddly skeptical about the idea of witnessing a miracle in this episode's tag leading into "The Walls of Jericho."

      • Several times during the Project HQ sequences there is an entirely immobile guard in the background (visible when Dr. Swain moves to the console), standing right next to the door to the outside. This appears to be a statue of some sort, as he never moves or shifts in position across multiple shots spanning a minute or two.
