SEASON 1 EPISODE 1.
"The Bride Possessed"
January 20 1959.
** Spoiler Alert **
SYNOPSIS: Matt and Sally Conroy's much-anticipated honeymoon is interrupted when Sally begins to
manifest the uncharacteristic behavior of a woman she has never met, a woman who died at Eagle Point
some weeks earlier. It seems that the restless spirit of Karen Warden is "possessing" the body of the
new bride to prove that her untimely plunge from the hilltop was not suicide . . . but murder.
COMMENTARY: One Step Beyond's pilot episode immediately lands the fledgling series on solid
ground, so far as its paranormal subject matter is concerned. The topic at the heart of "The Bride Possessed"
is possession: the control of an unwilling individual by some external force or person . . .
