Ending sequence (same as in "Triangle")

  • The producers do a particularly good job portraying the psychosis of the sniper – the twist ending is a pleasant surprise too
  • Hulk out 1: Listening to ultrasonics
  • Hulk out 2: Being beaten up while trying to stop an assassination

TriviaEdit

Paul Koslo also guest-starred in "Long Run Home".

David White (of Bewitched) portrays a man who endured the death of a son. Tragically, the actor would eventually go through a similar ordeal in real life. In December of 1988, his son Jonathan was killed in the bombing of Pan Am Fight 103.
