"Dead Man's Eyes" is the eighth episode of the science fiction television series 2002 revival of The Twilight Zone. The episode aired October 9, 2002 on UPN.


Opening Narration

Born into a life of wealth and privilege, Laurel Janus has always gotten exactly what she wants. But with the murder of her husband, Laurel's life of luxury has been shattered. Now, all she wants, is to see justice done. A justice that can only be found in the Twilight Zone.

Plot summary

A distraught widow and former rehab patient on the verge of a total mental collapse, heavily invested in finding her husband's killer, discovers that her murdered husband's eyeglasses reveal the last moments of his life and possibly the identity of his killer. Step by step she goes through the last minutes of his life, seeing her husband argue with his partner, the prime suspect. But she sees the suspect leave and her best friend come in—the two were having an affair. But in the end she sees who really killed her husband—herself, and she then blanked it out due to her alcohol problems. Forced to confront the truth, she is put away for good in an asylum.

Closing Narration

Laurel Janus' vision of justice has finally come into focus. The verdict: guilty... guilty of a life lived in complete denial. And now... serving out her sentence... in a lonely corner... of the Twilight Zone.

Episode Notes

This episode is the third in a series of Twilight Zone episodes where clothing items from the deceased carry information from them, previously used in "Dead Man's Shoes" from the original series and "Dead Woman's Shoes" from the 1985 series. It also revisits the concept of eyeglasses which allow the wearer to view events from a different time, used in the episode "20/20 Vision" from the 1985 series.
