Maple Street, USA People are out on a normal late summer evening, when a bright light flies across the sky with a loud roar. The electricity goes out across the street as wives come out to complain to their husbands.
Charlie and Steve plan on going out to the town hall, but Tommy warns them not to leave. Charlie and Steve start to question Tommy.
It's not my son, thats for sure!
No it's Les Goodman!
No it's Charlie!
All of a sudden, Les Goodman's car turns on by itself and the electricity in his house starts working again. Everyone questions because Tommy had mentioned that one of the families in the neighborhood could be aliens. Everyone runs over to him in a mob because they're all scared and start to question him.
Shortly after, the mob sees somebody, or something walking down the street towards them. Charlie pulls out a shotgun and kills the thing. It was Pete Van Horn!
Everyone starts arguing about Pete Van Horn's death and eventually the conversations turn to blaming each other. Lights are flickering all around them and makes the people fight even more.
