The theme of "The monsters are due on Maple Street" , a teleplay by Rod Sterling, is that you should not be quick to blame others because you could be jumping to the wrong conclusions. On page 13 and 14, Charlie assumed that the thing walking down the street was a monster, so he shot it. But in reality, it was Pete Van Horn, who just went to the next street so he could check if the power was still on. This shows that you should not jump to conclusions because you will not focus on reason and logic. In this case, someone ended up dead because of it. In conclusion, don't jump to conclusions or else it can be very bad.
I'll go over to pine street to see if they're having the same problems
This is maple street, a quiet American street in the 1950s. This was the street in the last calm and reflective moment before the MONSTERS CAME.
This was the power going off, Pete Van Horn goes to the next street and tommy tells them the story about aliens.
Then Mr.Goodman's car turned on without him even touching it, when no one else had power. They started to get suspicious that he was sent from outer space!
Then, A dark figure started walking down the street. Don grabbed his shotgun Steve said "No, don't shoot", But Charlie took the gun and shot it. It moaned and fell to the ground, Dead. They all run over to see what it was."Its Pete Van Horn!." someone exclaimed. And Charlie shot him!
After that the lights when on at Charlie's house. No, its Tommy! Its Don! No it's Mr. Goodman! Its Steve, he's got the radio! Then someone threw a rock, a gun went off, and people were throwing knifes at each other. Once close friends, neighbors and family's were now trying to murder each other.
This is when the figures are standing on the hill looking down at the street and seeing all the violence. "They pick the most dangerous enemy they can find" Figure one says. "And its themselves." This is something that can not be contained in... THE TWILIGHT ZONE
