Episode 26: Summit Meeting: Part I - 10/31/67

An unchartered island in the Baltic, one hour after dawn. Thor Halvorsen, symbol of the world's dream for peace, keeps a fateful appointment. 
A helicopter lands as three men stand by two limos on the beach. An alien in business attire exits the chopper as two green suited aliens wait by the aircraft. He approaches the three men and confirms the identity of Thor Halvorsen, who introduces Secretary Rosmundson and Vice Chancellor Alquist, acknowledging that his people have been in contact with Alquist.

The alien asks if he was satisfied with the demonstration, and Halvorsen said he was, and asks if he still wants him to offer the substance to the world. The alien affirms that he does, and tells him the only condition is that their presence remain a secret, which Halvorsen agrees to. He asks if he's prepared to go ahead with the plan, and Halvorsen says he will send out invitations to the heads of state that day. The alien states that their business is concluded.

As Halvorsen and Rosmundson walk back to their limo, Alquist hangs back with the alien, who comments that the chauffeurs are witnesses. Alquist tells him that one is theirs and he'll take care of the other one. The limo takes the two men away, and the alien returns to the helicopter. Alquist enters the remaining limo and slaps the chauffeur on the back of the neck with a lighted disc. He dumps his body on the beach and drives away.

The Invaders are back!

I don't mean to alarm anybody, but I have recently come across possible evidence that The Invaders have returned to Earth and are trying to take over the government. 

The deformed pinky has always been a reliable method of identifying Invaders. As we saw in The Enemy, Invaders begin to melt as they revert to their own form. Perhaps that could explain what is happening in the image below. 

Of course, I am just having a bit of fun. There couldn't really be Invaders posing as high level attorneys who are working with government officials to subvert an election. That's just a huge conspiracy theory worthy of a nut job like David Vincent. Or is it? 

Clearly, this is a sign that I need to buckle down and finish up Season 2 of The Invaders. To the dedicated followers of The Invaders who may have thought I would never emerge from the regeneration tube or had finally begun to glow red and vaporize, I thank you for your patience and dedication. Your comments have been truly appreciated and add value to this blog. I look forward to sharing the rest of the series with you. Episodes will post on Tuesdays, if all goes well. In the meantime, keep an observant eye out for those unbent pinky fingers!
