  • Written by Rod Serling himself, it's about a wanted man in Mexico whose hiding a special gift for the people. However the townspeople look to kill the man before he does it.

    Great episode, probably the more memorable out of the series run. It's supposed to take place in Medero Mexico.
    A misunderstanding and turn of events leads a man to be on the run. The townspeople label him as a killer already.

    Miracously he's survived two bullets and as the doctor says has a strong will to live (this is explained later). The man makes friends with Mexican boy Pedro (the actor playing him is excellent). Soon the soldiers come in to escore the man back to justice or murder him in cold blood.

    A great episode with great acting especially the Mexican kid playig Pedro. A great twist by Rod at the end explaining the man's purpose. He summed it up as being part of fear of the townfolk but it's more about intolerance,
    an eye for eye without due process and a big misunderstanding.

    One of my favorites.
