A woman is carjacked in Death Valley. Her abductor makes her drive to a ghost town where he hopes to find an old relative.

A school teacher researching the gold rush takes a perilous journey through Death Valley. Stopping for gas she picks up some supplies, fuel, advice, and an escaped convict who informs her that he has to find his great great grandfather in order to kill him to ensure that he will never be born. Hrmmm. (Excel is unable to resolve a circular reference)

Told mostly in a flashback, and it included a flashback within that flashback. Made my head hurt.

Ralph Bell is so good here and quite chilling as the carjacker. I love the Western twang that he assumes for the role, lol!

A fairly good story, but as Joey mentions there is a circular reference that makes "wibbly wobbly timey-wimey stuff" (as a certain Doctor might say).

Russell Horton was the fifth actor in this episode.
