This was another episode that I had a lot of trouble getting much out of, even though the premise of the story was perhaps interesting enough. Using the setting of the American Civil War, and the ability of the light and the dark to play their roles in a loaded game probably came too late in the episode for it to be saved for me. When Sergeant Joseph Paradine meets up with an army that has apparently been frozen in time, he wonders what on earth is happening. He then meets Teague, an old man who is the perpetrator of this phenomenon, and who claims that he could do this to the whole opposing army, thus ensuring victory for the other side. The meandering story then makes its way through the possible uses and consequences of such a power.
By the time we get to the point where the real nitty gritty of the episode takes place, I have lost interest. I can see the redeeming features of the concluding story line, but too little happens in the first half of the play to help catalog this in the best parts of the series.
Rating: In the Devil we trust. 3/5.
