SEASON 2 EPISODE 11. (33 )

"Dead Ringer"
December 1 1959.

** Spoiler Alert **

SYNOPSIS: Housewife Esther Quentin succumbs to a terrible fever and then experiences a vision in
which she sees her twin sister commit arson by burning down an orphanage. Now she must prove
to the doctors that the mental picture she witnessed is no delusion.

COMMENTARY: Twins. The world seems to be fascinated with them, perhaps because it seems
unfathomable to human beings, a race that prides itself on individuality, that biology could create
a "double," a carbon copy. Though twins obviously have their own minds and personalities quite
separate form one another, there is still something unnerving about them . . .
