"I Hear You Calling" is an episode of The Outer Limits television show. It first aired on 26 January 1996.


A reporter on her way to work overhears a cellular phone conversation about the "removal" of a controversial author. Her investigation reveals a trail of people who disappeared leaving only a pile of ash behind... and the involvement of a man with strange violet eyes.

Opening narration[edit]


After a series of chases and narrow escapes, the alien hitman finally catches up with the reporter and reveals to her that the people he's been "removing" had accidentally contracted a deadly alien virus, and that he's been hunting them down in order to prevent them from spreading the virus to the rest of humanity. The hitman explains that the reporter has also contracted the virus through her contact with one of the targets, and the reporter ultimately decides to sacrifice herself to spare humanity from the disease. The hitman corrects the reporter, he has not been vaporizing the targets, merely teleporting them off Earth where the disease is not fatal. The episode ends with the alien and the reporter teleporting away.
