Late last night
I heard my screen door slam
And a big yellow taxi
Took away my old man
Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got
Till it’s gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
Episode four, how shall I start thee? Well, I know the update is a few days late and a dollar short, but several things were revealed in episode four.
One: There is at least one mole amongst the captives.
Two: Tori, the hot blonde in the red silky cut down to there slit up to there dress, wears underwear. (Paris Hilton and Britney Spears should take note)
As much as we want to talk about Tori and her obvious slutty appeal, lets focus on the big reveal. Joe is a mole in the group. After Joe is picked by Janet to leave the confines of the city block in a yellow taxi, they fall onto some bad luck. Namely the taxi breaks down and a black semi truck tries to run them over. In doing so, it obliterates the taxi and the driver. They run away from the truck and happen upon a cottage where they can get out of the cold. (How cozy and convenient)
Who didn’t know that bee’s would be swarming all over the cabin when they awoke in the morning. Joe let out that he was allergic to bee’s and one sting would be fatal. And lo and behold, not one sting from the countless thousands of swarming bee’s. Not one!
Secondly, Tori catches a cab out-of-town. Will it be the last we see of her and her underwear? At this point, I don’t really know, or care. But she is the sex appeal to the show so my bet is she will re-appear.
Finally, at the end of the episode, Joe goes into the Chinese restaurant for some take out food. Several secret codes are exchanged and Joe and the main chef are alone in a back room with Joe talking about not letting any harm to come to Janet. (He bonded with her) The chef asks if he is still in or out. After a brief tense moment, he complies and stays in. So we have at least two moles now. Joe and the Chinese chef.
This episode reminded me of a particular Twilight Zone about 7 random people trapped in a diner from a terrible snow storm. And one of them isn’t who they claim to be.
In my previous updates, I theorized that the show is based on Rod Serling and the Twilight Zone, a 1960′s Science Fiction program. Continuing with my Persons Unknown theory I submit for your approval my next offering titled:
Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up
Original Air Date: 05/26/1961 Season Two, Episode 64
Wintry February night, the present. Order of events: a phone call from a frightened woman notating the arrival of an unidentified flying object, and the check-out you’ve just witnessed with two state troopers verifying the event, but with nothing more enlightening to add beyond evidence of some tracks leading across the highway to a diner. You’ve heard of trying to find a needle in a haystack? Well, stay with us now and you’ll be a part of an investigating team whose mission is not to find that proverbial needle- no, their task is even harder. They’ve got to find a Martian in a diner, and in just a moment, you’ll search with them, because you’ve just landed in the Twilight Zone.
Two state highway patrol officers are checking on reports that an unidentified flying object crashed in the pond a little ways from the local diner. They follow footprints from the pond to the diner where a small bus load of people are waiting for the road to be cleared so they may continue their journey.
The only patrons of the diner are the bus passengers, but it is noticed that there is one more person in the diner than was on the bus. Suspicion is cast onto each and every traveler as they try to weed out who doesn’t belong. To add more mystery and anxiety, strange things begin to happen. The lights go on and off by themselves, the telephone rings, and the juke box plays by itself. The cook at the diner tries to keep everyone calm and shortly the call comes through that the road is cleared and the passengers board the bus and leave.
A little while later, the businessman, who was in the diner, returns, and tells the cook that the bridge collapsed and killed everyone aboard except him. A moment later, it is revealed that the business man is an alien, and that he caused the bridge to collapsed to conceal his identity. The twist is when the cook reveals that he too is an alien, from another world.
Incident on a small island, to be believed or disbelieved. However, if a sour-faced dandy named Ross or a big, good-natured counterman who handles a spatula as if he’d been born with one in his mouth, if either of these two entities walks onto your premises, you’d better hold their hands – all three of them – or check the color of their eyes – all three of them. The gentlemen in question might try to pull you into… the Twilight Zone.
In a nutshell, my theory, all the guests, (Captives) have been coerced into this scenario by threats and by force. If they become unwilling to cooperate, their loved ones will be harmed. Everyone has something to lose so they accept their lot in life in hopes of surviving to be let free and rejoin their lives.
Caveat: If anyone reveals or leaks any information that will taint the scenario, they will be quickly eliminated and removed from the area.
We know Joe and the chef are moles. It is only a matter of time before all the others will be revealed to be moles as well.
