Non è l'unico: anche Jillian con il figlioletto Barry e molti altri curiosi, come attirati da una premonizione, assistono al passaggio dell'oggetto volante. L'avvistamento cambia la vita di Roy che è talmente convinto dell'esistenza dei dischi volanti che viene licenziato dal lavoro e successivamente abbandonato dalla moglie. Nel frattempo, gli alieni rapiscono Barry, e Jillian prende a dipingere ossessivamente sempre lo stesso paesaggio: una montagna identica a quella che Roy scolpisce con qualsiasi sostanza gli capiti tra le mani dal giorno in cui ha avvistato gli Ufo. Ô la Devil's Tower, presidiata dalle autorità a causa di un incidente ecologico: in realtà si tratta di una scusa per sgombrare la zona dalla popolazione.
