This is one of the few episodes where I've watched it several times and I'm not 100% clear as to what's happening/happened.

It is almost Lynchian a few decades before David Lynch!

Just seen this one for the first time and listened to Tom's podcast. I think this is my new favourite TZ episode. It's amazing. The performances are so well done that the whole thing is really chilling. I'm surprised nobody has tried to make this one into a movie yet.
