Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Elizabeth Montgomery, who'd previously costarred with One Step Beyond host John Newlandin the popular 1950s anthology Robert Montgomery Presents, guests in this episode as Lillie Clarke, the selfish and willful daughter of Army camp commander William Clarke (Ed Prentiss). Inveigling her dad into finding her the "perfect" escort for a fancy dress ball, the vixenish Lillie rejects another suitor, then persuades papa to send the unwanted swain on a dangerous mission so he'll be out of the way. But on the night of the ball, guess who shows up to have the first dance with Lillie? And need we add: the first dance is also the last.
