The aliens are unable to break into the cellar. Hearing on the radio that the space ships have left Earth, the family emerges. The invaders are seemingly gone, but when Graham and Merrill go into the living room, they are confronted by a stranded alien. It is carrying Morgan and about to shoot deadly gas into his face. Suddenly recalling his wife’s dying words, Graham tells Merrill, a failed semi-pro baseball player, to "swing away." Merrill grabs his old bat from the wall bracket. The threatened alien releases the gas and drops Morgan to the floor. Graham grabs Morgan, who’s having an asthma attack, and rushes outside to give him a life-saving injection. Meanwhile, Merrill attacks the alien with the bat, and after a fierce struggle, kills it. Morgan survives, his asthma preventing him from breathing the poisonous vapor. Graham believes this was God’s way of saving his son. His faith restored, he returns to the pulpit.
Trivia: When the alien's hand comes out of the coal grate for Morgan, if you look closely you will see that the hand was already through the grate and the alien was using its colour changing abilities to hide. So if you look very closely you will that that the hand comes UP from the grate and not through it, and if you look VERY carefully you can see the outline of the hand even before Morgen says "What?"
