April 24,1964--Loengards wife Kim decides that she cannot miss her sisters wedding in Denver and sneaks away from John while he meets with one of the few people who know his terrible secret. The man that Kims sister is planning to marry is Rob Winter, but he isnt what he appears to be ... hes a Majestic agent.

During the course of his assignment, Rob really does fall in love with Kims sister and in the end, kills the people sent to harm Kim and her family instead of doing the job that he was sent to do. 

original airdate--December 7,1996    rating--4.9 million


music:"John's Escape","Roswell, New Mexico", by Michael Hoenig


Trivia: The show's creators had originally hoped to create five seasons, as indicated by the show's "Bible" or major planning document. According to Zabel and Friedman's original plan, 

first season (given the overall title "Official Denial") would cover the period from 1961 to 1969

second season ("Progenitor") 1970 to 1976  

third season ("Cloak of Fear") 1977 to 1986  

fourth season ("New World Order") would cover 1987 to 1999

fifth and final season ("Stroke of Midnight") would break from the decade-spanning format to encompass the apocalyptic final conflict against the invaders, taking place from 2000 to 2001.


 "My name is Jon Lowengard. I am recording this because we may not live through the night. They're here. They're hostile. And powerful people don't want you to know. History as we know it, is a lie!"
