Residents on Maple street panic as a strange comet flashes overhead.
IT'S PETE VAN HORN, CHARLIE!
As the comet flies over Maple Street, the electricity turns off, not even the portable radio works. Pete Van Horn goes to Floral Street to see if they have power.
It's Les Goodman!
Steve tries to turn on his car, but it doesn't work. Then, Tommy tells everyone stories from his comic books about aliens. People realize that Les Goodman isn't with them outside, and blame him to be the alien. They turn into a mob and drive Goodman out. Goodman yells that he has insomnia as the crowd grows more ferocious.
Pete Van Horn comes back and gets shot by Charlie, who was too quick to judge. Everyone turns on Charlie.
People start attacking Charlie, then the lights turn on in everyone's houses. They all start turning on each other trying to find the scapegoat.
In the distance, the aliens look down upon Maple st. They don't need weapons to destroy mankind. It's the humans who will destroy themselves.
Now, just sit back and watch as they destroy themselves.
